This happened a few years ago, and I don't know who was more embarrassed .....

For some reason I went into my son's bedroom on a Sunday morning, he was awake so I was chatting away with him......went downstairs.....

......a bit later this girl came down, looked a bit flushed followed by my seems she was in the bed next to him......I didn't know......I had to think quickly what I had said.......can't remember now but it must have been OK....

A relative of mine went out with a friend....and wanted to pass wind, but daren't......she drove her next door neighbour home, still with this gurgling stomach.......and couldn't wait to get indoors....

She knew that the house would be empty at that time of day......closed the door, and let out the most tremendous f**t.......then heard her daughter call out......Oh Muuuuuuuuum!!!!.......her daughter had come home early and brought her friend with her.....

Those are all so funny mine sinks into insignificance...
I was about 23 and was going to visit my sil with my babies....

I went into a little shop and asked for potatoes... my knicker elastic broke... I felt it go.... I could not do anything about it... even the counter was open and the shop keeper would have seen... I had nowhere to hide!

I asked the little ones to run down to their aunties.... while I followed keeping my thighs tightly clenched.

My sil front door opened into her bedroom where her husband was lying in bed.. (night shift) and I relaxed and my knickers dropped to the floor.
I don't remember his exact words but they were on the lines of.....*no thanks hen. I'm night shift tonight!*
If I had lost them in the street I would have become a recluse!! ;-0)
I'm thinking here.... that is not the only time I have been embarrassed !

Well, I die of embarrassment just thinking about it.
OH and I were a couple when we were teenagers (we split up and met again 10 years later - but thats another story). Anyway OH and I went back to his aunties where he was staying and the rest of the family were out. We too got down to the nitty gritty as one does and later on OH said I think I hear someone in the kitchen. Well a medal for the fastest putting on of clothes is all I can say.

But what I did not know as OH told me afterwards was that his auntie had come back home a good half hour before she made the noise in the kitchen - she did not want to embarrass us! Well I could not look her in the face for weeks. Oh my cheeks are burning at the thought and heres me at 51 years of age lol.

My most embarrasing Moment
I am a member of an Amature Theatre.
I forgot to go on for one of the skits that I did one night. The Guy I was doing the skit with was shouting through the Wings Muriel (my name in the skit) where are you?. Shock Horror I realised I should have been on stage. Stood there in my bra and knickers I had to do something quick so I grabbed the nearest thing I could find a very skimpy Wrap and put a wig on. Walked on stage and the audience cracked up at the site of me. No shoes on my feet wig back to front and the wrap coming undone and showing all I had got.
My partner in the Skit couldn't speak for laughing at me. Eventually which seemed like an eternity we both settled down and I then forgot my words. So I took hold of his hand told the audience we wouldnt be a minute went in the wings and said what am I supposed to say I can't think for laughing. We then went back on and did the skit and brought the house down. But it was the longest two minutes of my life. I have never been able to forget it either as someone was videoing the show that night.
I am reminded of it regularly

another embarrassing moment was, when i was about 17 my dad found out i was smoking so he said ok, you smoke so he allowed me to smoke, then one night i ran out of ciggies, so i decide to ask my dad for a ciggy, but my parents was in bed, so i went upstairs and shouted at the bedroom door, but they never heard me, so i open the door and said dad!!!! to my horror i was so shocked my mom and dad was at IT, i was traumatized, at the thought of my parents doing it, my mom fumble with the duvet and shouted GET OUT!!! and said knock the door in future, couldn't look him in the face next day, i was very naive didn't think they still did it at their age.

When the policeman realised we werent robbers in a neighbourhoodwatch area..and in fact we were young lovers getting carried away in the back of a white van..he just smiled and ushered us away..I never did anything quite like that again!

after getting out of the shower one very sunny afternoon i decided to have a quick lie down on the bed after being up early that morning for work...anyway i nodded off and the next thing i knew i could hear a squeaking noise...there at the window was the window cleaner!!...i didn't know whether to whip the duvet over me or make a run for it...i decided to pull the duvet over me and hide underneath...he was there for what felt like forever...i have never felt so embarrassed and can feel my face going red at the thought of it now!! oh and the windows seemed to be alot cleaner than they normally was as well.

LOL Iris, thats very reminiscent of an experience I had with a swimming cossie and the sea.
Went for a day trip somewhere (can't even remember where now), with my cousin.
We donned our cossies and waded out into the sea, and like you, ended up with a long walk back.

About half way back, my cousin just happened to look over in my direction and screamed 'Oh my God!.........your cossies transparent!'

Felt a little bit like that painting where the woman is standing in a sea shell virtually naked and trying to cover her modesty lol!

ive told this on here once before, but it was a good while ago, so will give t another airing lol

When i was a teenager, i had been out for a night on the town with girlfriends, was bursting for a wee, and knew i wouldnt be able to make it home
left my friends about 1/4 of a mile from my house, and was desperate, so thought id go into the fields, and have a wee, i ran like the wind, didnt stop to look, just stooped, pulled down my knickers and started to pee, then i looked up and right in front of me and i do mean right in front, was a courting couple,
They just stopped kissing, and starred at me, with disbelief,
I was mortified, just jumped up, tugging at my pants, and ran, with them still watching me

God knows who they were, but it taught me a lesson, have a wee before you leave a pub !!!!!
