I was once round my MIL and FILs having Christmas drinks when MILs affair came out. It was excruciating. All the (adult) children were crying and I just wanted the ground to swallow me up. DH wouldn’t come home because he wanted to stay with his dad so I just keep making cups of tea and doing washing up! what’s been your most mortifying situation.

At least 32 times a day I open my mouth and something stupid comes out.

When I was a teen I let a boy go down on me. I had my period and he never came near me again.

I think it was when I was about 19 & had my wisdom teeth out. My Dad collected me & drove me home. Apparently I was yabbering on & on about stuff he really didn't need to know and to his dying day would not tell me what I'd said. I hate to think...

I thought I could wax my own nunny, turns out I couldn’t and split it open just on the inside, blood pouring everywhere, had to go to A&E and have a couple of Drs check me out (sure it didn’t need 2, also sure I heard a bit of sniggering) then I had to have it glued back together, mortified blush

Crying on the phone when exH wouldn't replace the tech he had bought DC when he had previously promised to upgrade it. Nor my finest hour

I was at my friends for her son’s 6th birthday party when there was a furious row heard from the kitchen, so that all the marauding 6 year olds stopped their party activities and we all listened for a minute in jaw dropping silence until the adults started very loudly talking small talk to cover it up. Friend stormed out in tears. Her husband came back in the room being all jolly and loud. Turns out he’d lost his job SIX months before and hadn’t told her.

She’d read an email mid party

I bent/broke my boyfriend’s penis while shagging enthusiastically in my first year of university. I don’t even notice he was flaccid and writhing in pain right away and carried on bouncing like fucking Tigger. To make matters worse, the SHO treating his penile fracture did a little double-gun salute as he left the cubicle and said “take it easy kids”.

We never made eye contact again.

A few years ago when I was a couple of weeks into a new job (in which I was very junior) I was discussing something with my boss. She complimented me on how I’d handled a situation and she sort of gestured with her hand and for some inexplicable reason I high-fived her. I thought that’s why she was holding her hand out. It was not. It was hideously awkward and every time I think about it I physically cringe.

When I was about 20 I was a single mum, full time career for my nan, full time uni student and part time waitress. I needed a smear test and the nurse could only fit me in between dropping my kids at my mums and me going to work. It was the very start of the men's health hour but I didn't mind at all. Went into see the nurse and it was really uncomfortable after she removed the speculum. She said to wait in the waiting room for a prescription for my nan and so of I went. I sat in a waiting room with half a dozen men and it was filled with those horrid plastic chairs with the metal legs. The floor was tiled. I moved in my seat as my uniform was digging in me and I let go the longest, most elephant sounding Fanny fart ever. It shuddered down the chair leg and I swear I felt it spread out along the floor. I went day glo red. A man guffawed at me and every body looked at the corners of the room while I scrambled to find cover. I picked up a leaflet from the table and hid behind it. Another person laughed in a "omg" manner and then an older man tentatively asked me if I was ok.

Id picked up a Leaflet about sexually transmitted diseases 😬😱.

It was a very long few minutes waiting for that prescription.

I accidentally sent a nude to my friend...who is married...and a vicar blush

Laughing my head off at high 5-info your boss!
Reminded me when I was at the dentist, he had his finger in my mouth, shouted suction to the assistant. For some reason thought it was aimed at me, and I sucked his finger

m00rfarm Tue 06-Oct-20 21:42:34

@Findmeonetsy - that made me laugh out loud for the first time in months - thank you flowers

Pinkshrimp Tue 06-Oct-20 21:43:47

Heavily sedated for a procedure I became aware of swearing and shouting as I came round a bit more.
I was the one actually F-ing and Blinding like a trooper blush 15 years later and it still makes me cringe.

Had been sorting through bedside drawers got am distracted by a phone call. Electrician called round to fix a dodgy socket in our bedroom I sent him straight upstairs as I was dealing with a work problem on the phone. Not until he had left did I notice the stuff that you keep in your bedside drawers strewn across the carpet.

A family member overheard a phone call.

My son was about a week old, and I was wearing an old button down shirt of my husband's for easy access due to the cluster feeding frenzy. A delivery man came to the door, and he had a very odd look on his face but I really couldn't be bothered because I was so tired from lack of sleep. A minute later I realised I had answered the door with the shirt completely unbuttoned with my enormous, milk-engorged breasts on display for the whole world to see.

EmmaMY Tue 06-Oct-20 21:55:08

These are hilarious! 😂

Once when I was leaving the dentist and he opened the door and stretched his arm out to show the way, I thought he was asking for a hug, so leaned in and probably even air kissed him! 🙈

@Findmeonetsy that is pure gold! Dying with laughter.

I walked up and hugged enthusiastically a friend id not seen for years- including a breast grab which was just stupid stuff we did to each other at that time. But if course it's was a frickin stranger who screamed. I died on the spot and couldn't explain myself as was so mortified.
