Tell me you've had worse. Walking home, the spoke of a man's umbrella knocked my wig off. Right by the traffic lights. Someone wound his window down to shout "I think you've dropped something, love".

Ok it seems funny now 😀

Whywonttheyletmeusemyusername Wed 19-Jun-19 10:07:58

Oh god....I'm so sorry but I did laugh. Well done for taking it so well op grin

bobstersmum Wed 19-Jun-19 10:09:32

Oh dear!

CaptainButtock Wed 19-Jun-19 10:12:41

Oh man... props to you for seeing the funny side 😀
(FWIW umbrellas will be outlawed when I rule the world. Bastard eye-poking, selfish, space-hogging frigging things that they are....)

To make you feel a bit better, here's one of mine

When I was late teens then BF got me some roller blades. Now, I grew up in the country on gravel roads. I've never skated. Well I was practising on a nice secluded footpath next to a golf course. I'd skate up a tiny incline and then coast down. When i got too fast I'd roll on to the grass and stop.

Well, typical me, I got confident. I started down the incline thinking I could make it all the way to the bottom. Part way down, I started getting the speed wobbles in my ankles. Abort!!!!! Rolled on to the grass but I was fairly zipping. Grass didn't work and I quite literally star fished into the chain link fence around the golf course. Of course not in the springy bit, I had to tackle the post. My left foot got jammed under the fence. Two golfers start running over to assist me. I managed to get out of the skates, yank the jammed one out of the fence and hobble at speed to the car before my rescuers made it to me.

I have to admit I laughed! Turn it around and use it as your party piece and laugh it off.

Lobsterquadrille2 Wed 19-Jun-19 10:22:11

@k1233 haha! You wrote that so well.

Of course it's funny. I was trying to a) put wig back on b) run home and c) frantically looking in the huge line of cars for anyone I knew.

GooodMythicalMorning Wed 19-Jun-19 10:25:15

poor you. Im sure most people who saw would be sympathetic, ignore anyone else. sounds like you did well in that situation.

My most embarrassing moment was when a man came to put a new bathroom window in (it was on the ground floor) and I was dying for a wee and trying to time it so that he didn't see me.

I didn't time it well, as it happens. I was just lowering myself on to the toilet when he appeared behind me and was able to see me through the gap left by the old window, which he had removed prior to replacing it.

Then, of course, he saw me leap up, pull up my knickers and trousers and run off - to the safety of the bedroom cupboard, where I hid.

(I used the toddler's potty a few moments later)

To make matters worse I had to see him again when he'd finished the work, to complete the paperwork.

@Lobsterquadrille2
I'm not laughing at you, but with you. I have the giggles now, sorry.

My most embarrassing one ( to date ) was walking back into my bedroom after a shower, starkers to see the window cleaner staring at me. Whether it was in shock, horror or what has yet to be decided.
It was definitely a 'i can't believe its not butter' moment as i moonwalked back out of the room at a rate of knots.

Aged 12. Lying on back on mum and dad's bed doing those cycle things where you raise your bum and cycle your legs in the air. Dad looks at me funnily. Go to loo, see I've started my second ever period and there's blood all over my knickers and legs that my dad had seen. To make it worse DM was away so I them had to ask him for money to go to the shop for Tampax, he threw a fiver at me in embarrassment (this was over 30 years ago and they cost about 50p).

Chasing down the street after the postman, past loads of neighbours in their gardens, only to realise I'd neglected to put my boobs away (had been breastfeeding my newborn). This was only a couple of days after my milk had come in so there was absolutely no missing it! 😂. But I got my parcel!

SerenDippitty Wed 19-Jun-19 10:50:32

k1233 Imagine if you had hit the springy bit, you could have richocheted and landed god knows where.

Op it is funny the way you tell it but sure it wasn’t at the time.

Hot day. Wrap front black jersey dress. Large work bag. Crossing the road in London, waiting at lights. Make fleeting eye contact with an old (male) work friend, waiting on opposite pavement.
Not seen him for years but we used to socialise outside work too. Feel glad to see him. Glance down. Realise large, heavy bag on my shoulder has pulled wrap-front of dress open. One tit, clad in nude bra, fully exposed.
See former colleague spot the boob too. Hurry past each other, without speaking. DH and he occasionally work in same place. Can never, ever go there again.

Imaysnapandfart Wed 19-Jun-19 10:52:16

Oh dear - I'm sure anyone would have been sympathetic rather than laughing - and good for you for being able to laugh at it now.

Mine is: my first time on my own since birth of DD, walking down the street, feeling pretty good about myself. This guy behind me keeps looking at me, and I'm feeling flattered by the attention, he catches up to me, and I ready my polite "That's so nice but I'm married" speech, when he nervously says, "Um, I'm so sorry, but your skirt is tucked into your knickers..."
Absolute SHAME. And all the cars driving past would have seen as well! grin

I lost my wig once whilst dancing in a London venue one night! I was mortified but laughed, put it back on and carried on with my night! That was almost 20 years ago and I still think it was funny!

Staying a resort with family and extended family. Was told by my SIL who booked the rooms that the large floor to ceiling windows in the bathroom were heavily frosted and you couldn't see in. Showered at night and noticed lots of shapes (people) coming and going in the courtyard/ carpark downstairs. Went down to my car a bit later and look up to the window- I could see everything in the bathroom clear as day.

Oh lord, I still blush when I think about this;

I was stopping at my exBFs one night and had come straight from work so decided to have a bath. He shouted to me that he'd ordered a pizza and was nipping to the shop to pick up a bottle of wine for me. As fate would have it, he got caught in a queue at the shop and, as I was just getting out of the bath, the delivery man arrived at the door.

I stuck my dressing gown on, grabbed my handbag and answered the door, but couldn't find my purse. I then remembered there had been a huge queue behind me as I'd come out of the park and ride car park earlier, so I'd flashed my permit at the barrier, then chucked my purse into the back seat of the car so I didn't hold anyone up.

I explained to the delivery man that I needed to get my purse, squeezed past him and went to my car, thinking to myself "Go round the far side so you don't bend over in your dressing gown and flash him!", grabbed my purse and made my way back into the house to pay for the pizza.

Unfortunately for me, it was raining outside and my wet feet hit the laminate flooring just inside the house, resulting in me hitting the floor spread-eagled in just my bath robe and flashing everything God has given me to the rather bemused delivery man!

I've never ordered from them again, and still want to die.

I was very gauche, even in the sixth form. In a Physics lesson I dropped something and leaned over to pick it up and having long loose hair, my hair got caught in the lowest button on the teacher's jacket, it took ages to release it and the rest of the class were in hysterics, it must have looked very pervy!

HippyTrails Wed 19-Jun-19 11:01:41

Sorry Lobster but I did chuckle

Jemima - that is brilliant, i'll bet he was more shocked/confused by you in the cupboard rather than seeing you pants down.

LadyRannaldini Wed 19-Jun-19 11:03:26

windows in the bathroom were heavily frosted and you couldn't see in
We stayed in an agritourism place in Italy, the room only had a small window but the door was mirroered glass, light came in but no-one could see in. After a couple of days we discovered the hard way that at night, with the interior lights on, it acted as a normal piece of glass.

stephfriend Wed 19-Jun-19 11:05:58

First stay in a hotel room with now fiancee for a family wedding, got very drunk and sleptwalked naked to the toilet, did the loudest, most explosive poo's anyone has ever heard.
