Show and Tell Tuesday: Most Embarrassing Moments

Hi! Thanks for joining me today as I link up with Andrea at Momfessionals for today's Show & Tell Tuesday: Embarrassing Moments! I'm turning bright red as we speak!



I figured we'd start from my childhood and work our way up to the present...

In second grade, I attended a private school that was housed completely in portable buildings. We had music class with a male teacher named Mr. Watson. The students all sat on the floor for the class, and Mr. Watson was a bit eccentric and a little scary to a second grade girl. One day, I desperately needed to use the restroom, and instead of asking the teacher, I had an accident instead! I was mortified and had to think of a quick lie, so I raised my hand and told Mr. Watson that I thought there was a leak in the ceiling, and I must have sat in the water that had leaked through, so could I move?! OMG! Why the heck didn't I just ask to GO to the bathroom!? Apparently my mother did this once as a child too, so it must run in the family!


I was pretty sheltered as a kid and never really got into much trouble, so in middle school, my friends and I decided to climb a chain-link fence at our school during a craft show. Since I had zero experience climbing fences, of course I got stuck at the top and completely ripped the back of my jeans open and had to wear a sweatshirt tied around my waist for the rest of the afternoon! Lesson learned: Fences are not meant to be climbed, and getting my pants ripped was my karma - or - I suck at climbing fences and should therefore stay on the ground at all times!


High school wasn't too mortifying, and I actually enjoyed my time during those 4 years. So, since I was spared embarrassment during that time, of course I had to make up for it in college. I took a class about immigration, and it was a fairly small class- maybe 40 students. I NEVER volunteered in the class because I was very intimidated and felt out of my element. Well, one day the discussion was about political bosses- think Boss Tweed. The professor then asked if we could think of any other political bosses, and a lightbulb went off! I knew this from my high school AP class! I raised my hand, the professor called on me, and I said, "Boss Hogg!" A couple of guys snickered, and the professor said, "I'm not sure I know who that is..." Within seconds, I realized that we had just gone to see The Dukes of Hazzard movie! AGH! (And no, I didn't explain it to the professor!)


Later on in college, Robert and I had Thanksgiving dinner with his sweet aunt. His aunt is one of the nicest ladies in the world, and somehow we got onto the topic of shopping, and I said something along the lines of, "I really don't like Burlington Coat Factory. I think their clothes are cheap and tacky!" And then Robert's sweet aunt says, "Oh, I got this top from Burlington..." Ugh!


And last but not least, probably my favorite most embarrassing moment! When I was about 8 months pregnant with Ari, I knelt down next to one of my students who had called me over to his desk. I instantly heard a RIP! Not only did I split my pants, I split them in the FRONT! I was panicking and dying laughing at the same time as I covered my pants, and the poor boy was so confused by what was going on. He said, "Mrs. Lee! Are you having your baby? Should I go get the nurse!?" I had to think fast and walk out in the hall until another teacher could grab my sweatshirt. I tied it around my waist like an apron and had to teach like that for the rest of the day!


Apparently I'm quite skilled at ripping my pants in front of people! Thanks for joining me today! Can you relate to any of my embarrassing stories? Tell me in the comments below!

  5. OH MY GOSH Allie!!!! I'm sitting here all by myself chuckling. You are killing me! The Boss Hog comment and then the Burlington Coat Factory (agreed on that store, BTW) This prompt took way too much brain power for me. But I will share with you that I had a similar situation in elementary school and was mortified as well! I walking SUPER FAST (some might say running๐Ÿ˜‰ which we all know is against the rules) down the hall, rounded the corner, bumped square in to a teacher and tears proceeded to run down my leg.) Maybe I should have shared that๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ And I could definitely use a MUTE button and my family would buy me one if they could figure out where to get it! LOL
