Embarrassing Moments, The Countless Ways I Humiliate Myself

Hello Monday!

Today I am joining the Show & Tell Tuesday fun a few days late. This months topic is sharing your embarrassing moments. At first I wondered why in the world I (or anyone for that matter) would want to relive humiliation and put those red-faced moments on their blog for anyone to read. But then I realized that I have no shame and feel completely okay with making people laugh at the expense of my pride 😆 .

I opted to keep my stories short and sweet. I’m sure I could be more detailed, but I think a rapid fire approach may work best and keep me from questioning why in the world I am doing this.

Here we go…

~ I choke on water… like all the time. Who does this? Is it really that hard to drink?! I think not. One time I was convinced I was going to die. It was at dinner with our family and they all just stared at me.

~ The time you finish exercising, go get a towel to wipe the machine off, and wipe off the wrong one. I typically wouldn’t think much of it except for the fact that I silently judge others for doing it all the time. 

~ Sometimes I develop a case of road rage and pass someone who is going painfully slow only to have them turn into the same location as I do… like church. 

~ I’m a bit of a klutz and often find myself tripping over things. You know, both physical and invisible things. It takes a classy lady to trip over nothing. 

~ I once wore my pants to the gym inside out. I made through nearly the whole entire workout before discovering it. I mean I DO workout early, but?!

~ I have a bad habit of saying ‘That’s what she said.’ at the wrong (or hilarious) moment. Usually the only person it really ends up embarrassing is myself.

~ I have a built blood pressure monitor that always let’s others know how I am feeling. Anytime I get anxious, nervous, excited (things that make my blood pressure go up) my neck gets red and blotchy. I literally walk around with my feelings on my neck. Maybe I should just wear turtlenecks all the time to mask it.

~ One summer I clothes-lined myself on a volleyball net the very first night of summer camp. (In my defense it was dark and yes, I was running.) I spent the rest of the week walking around camp looking like someone had tried to strangle me. Do you know what that does to a 13-year-old girls self-esteem?

~ Once I wore pink workout pants to an August night race and while looking at race photos when I got home I realized I had sweat so badly it looked like I had peed my pants. The pants have since been burnt. Never wear pastel colored pants when its 100+ degrees outside.

And these are just the ones that haven’t traumatized me so badly that I felt the need to block them out forever. 

Tell me one of your embarrassing moments?

    Oh my goodness these had me chuckling out loud! I have totally done the wiping the wrong machine at the gym and I just had that road rage happen to me – I got all angry and passed someone only to realize we were both attending the same baby shower…whoops

    • Baha ha ha! So glad I am not alone in these struggles.

  • Meghan Flinn

    Haha you are too funny! I’m always hesitant to show my road rage on town roads cause I’ve learned I live in a “small” town where everyone knows everyone!

    • That would certainly make me think twice too!

  • Hahhaha, I choke on water occasionally but more than that I just miss my mouth when drinking. Oy.

    • Yeah, I am not about doing that either :P.

  • Heather Bramlett

    HA! Ben swears Ella and I trip over air! We are so clumsy!
    I hate to admit it but my road rage can be bad sometimes!! EEEKK!

    • Hehe he! YES! At least we don’t struggle alone.

  • Haha. I laughed with you. Not at you. Lately I’ve been choking on my own saliva, usually in the middle of the night. Weird, huh.

    • The middle of the night is a little weird but yeah, I choke on mine too. I have said to Russ that it takes a classy lady to choke on her own spit, lololol!

  • Hahahaha. So many comments!!

    First of all, the road rage – YES! I get it so bad, too, and I can’t even tell you how many times the person ends up at the same place where I’m going. The other day someone was driving down the highway like a maniac and they flew in front of me so I honked and then they ended up getting off on our exit and going to… Jacob’s school. Buh.

    Next, that’s what she said – bahahaha. B and I say that all the time. Totally inappropriate, but so hilarious, yes.

    Finally, my neck gets all red when I get upset/embarrassed too! It’s AWFUL! It never used to do that until I got into my 20s and it seems to get worse the older I get.

    • I think we must be related some how girl, lol! I mean genetics would totally describe the neck thing, HA! So funny. Thanks for making me feel not so alone.

  • haha, so the lesson of the story is to not workout…hehe. You and me both friend, klutzy to the end 🙂 And I try not to road rage when going to somewhere like church for that reason, or when I’m close to work I keep the RR at bay just in case!

    • Baha ha! I think it just might be. The other day on the way to AWANA Marissa was begging me to pass a slow poke but I held back because I just knew they’d turn into the parking lot too. Go figure, they didn’t. Better safe than sorry though.

  • Jen Stimbert Pabst

    Pretty sure we just became best friends hahaha 😉 I was recently following this car who was going painfully slow, I admit I got a tad road ragey and sped past them and then we both arrived at church.
    That’s what she said is my favorite line ever, I am constantly getting myself into trouble by using it at the wrong time 😉

    • Hehehe! It happens EVERY stinking time. I now refuse to pass anyone when going to a church function.
      SO funny girl. Glad we don’t struggle alone.

  • Love this post! These made me laugh. The road rage thing. Happened to me once with a coworker – and he called me out later that day at work, in a meeting. Facepalm. And I am such a klutz too!

    • Baha ha ha! Oh my gosh that sucks so bad…. and is really funny too. Thanks for making me lol!

  • I can relate to pretty much all of these…. the road rage thing, yep, it’s happened. I choke on water more than you’d like to know…

  • You my friend are a good time!

  • Haha! How did I miss this gem last week? OK, so on the whole road rage story sharing… once I honked at this lady who was driving totally slow and looked over and realized she was a lady from church….. Ugh!

  • Cracking up because we are so much alike! I choke all the freakin’ time, too! And it mostly only happens when I am at my in-laws. I can’t for the life of me figure out why! I trip all the dang time, too! Some of Nathan’s favorite stories to tell are those of me falling down. Ugh! I’m pretty good at the “that’s what she said” thing, too. And always at inappropriate things. Ooops! Nate even gives me credit for it! Haha.

    • I always knew we were kindred spirits, just destined to be friends. I guess this confirms it for sure girl.

  • These made me giggle!!!

  • Whitney Jordan

    Thanks for the laughs! Glad I’m not the only one who trips over nothing and chokes on air or water. I do it all the time and it’s so annoying. Your pink pants story made me LOL. My husband says that’s what she said all the time and embarrasses me on occasion 🙂

    • Oh man we are one and the same Whitney. I am so glad that my kids are the main ones to see me embarrass myself constantly.

  • OMG…I not only choke on water but sometimes choke on my very own spit!! It’s ridiculous. And the pink pee pants cracks me up. I had a trainer once who pushed me to do jumping jacks when I told him over and over I could not and finally I did….and then he got to be the trainer in the gym with the client who peed herself! haha

    • Baha ha! YES, me too! They really should know better than to test post children women’s bladders like that. I don’t jump rope for a reason.
