So I totally forgot to post Fab Friday... but we are easy girls, right? (I mean easy like, uncomplicated, low maintenance... not...well, easy)
We are going to do a condensed version. Just one "Fab" (or in my case, not so "fab" item).
This week, I made a fool out of myself in front of a celebrity by calling her daughter by the wrong name. (I told you guys, I have 400 of these kids each day...you can mix up a name or two).
No, I won't tell you the celebrity, but she is definitely A list. And, for the record, super nice.
I thought I'd make conversation while she was waiting and speak to her daughter. Who I called by the wrong name. Miss Celebrity was super gracious and said, "Actually, this is ____. Her sister is ___. They look alike, it happens all the time." I did an uncomfortable laugh and excused myself.. something about checking on something...
Anyway, tell me. Have you embarrassed yourself recently? Or not so recently is fine too.
I once locked myself in a public bathroom in Germany. Apparantley the key was "just for decoration". I was in there for almost 1/2 hour before the restaurant owner came to see what was wrong. With his broken English and my broken German, we managed to get the key out the window and FREE ME :)! Everyone in the place seemed to know what was going on and clapped for me when I came out.
It's always embarrassing to get names wrong. I hate it when that happens.
Yesterday, just when the state of my house had reached an all time low in cleanliness, my employer popped by with her daughter to give me a gift certificate for my hard work (a sweet gift) and of course her 4yr old took off into my house, the mother had to go to retrieve her, and the house was A MESS. I was so embarrassed. Mortified.
There were some cars behind her and so she pulled into a parking space and I KNEW she was not going to clear the car next to her...and she didn't. She bumped right into it.
Like bumper cars.
I was embarrassed for her...does that count?
Um, maybe it was the fact that I over-nighted an empty box to a client? I mean I can't stop thinking about what an idiot I am. I am so embarassed but not embarassed enough not to tell the ENTIRE INTERNET!
Nan- Thanks for coming by! This story is hysterical and totally something I would have done. Except that I barely passed high school Chem, but could totally teach US History.
Jaci- This I so know. Ugh.
Shelia- That totally counts. Devyn's mom can be that way sometimes. Good thing he has you around.
Rhea- If someone wlalked into my closet right now, I would die of embarrassment.
Kandace- Yeah, read about your mishap. I told you to get off the pole and start focusing.
Bobbi- I only have one kid and I get his name wrong on occasion. So, I guess I should have seen this one coming.
Just the other day I hopped on my sons razor scooter (trying to be cool) took a little spin around the playground equipment, hit a bark chip and the scooter stopped moving, but my big girl frame did not. I was flat on my face before I even knew what happened.
The park was packed and I was so embarassed.......
I posted about it Thursday. Come check it out!
At least Taylor didn't have to poke me in the ribs, during the movie, because I'd fallen asleep and started to softly snore. That happens, occassionaly!
And, oh god, I embarrass myself daily!
Needless to say, I am still Hubby's arm candy, not George's.
ps- it's not a good day until you have at least one good embarrassment!
Truly, though...it wasn't really embarrassing. I laughed more than anyone else.
I was downloading comedy ringtones one day and one was titled "Not the Police", so I thought that would be cute for one of my staff (who is a young man and a pain in the bottom). I never listed to it just put it in and set it has my staff's ringtone. Well I am in my supervisors office with other co-workers when this staff calls me and the ringtone goes loudly "This is not the police, but down the BlUNT" I about died, my supervisor looked at me and said " You know your evaluation is coming up!" Grrrr
Oh and I might of spelled Blunt wrong, I'm not up on the latest drug code words. lol
And now I have to post as anonymous so I can seem all cool and aloof too :)!
