    Default Embarrassing Moments

    A couple of weeks ago I was walking up a path. There were hedges all along the way, and a tree line going off into the distance.
    There was no-one around as I strode my merry way, so I let off a gigantic beer burp of monumental proportions. Why not?
    Except that the moment I did, I passed the tree-line and on the other side there was a funeral going on. This is not a gag, this actually happened.
    I'm sure I saw one lady giggling, but I shielded my face from the rest of proceedings as I hurried past. Very embarressing.
    Any stories like this?

    When I left drama school in the early nineties, I wrote to an actor who lived quite near me. I asked whether I could help him with the youth drama group he ran. He had been quite a famous actor in the 70s and was once again on TV regularly in the 90s. And I was a bit of a fan.

    Within about a week, the phone rang one evening. The caller said who he was, thanked me for writing to him, and said he'd like to talk to me about helping with the group. Unfortunately, his voice sounded exactly like a friend of mine who enjoyed playing practical jokes on me. So I said, "Ha ha, OK, you're sussed. I know it's you Paul." The actor calling me said, "No, you wrote me a letter. I was just responding..." I laughed and said, "It's OK, you can stop now. I know you're winding me up."

    Taking a deep breath, the poor guy read out a bit of the letter and I realised it really was him! I apologised profusely and said I had a friend who used to ring me up and pretend to be someone else.

    I've never forgotten the excruciating awkwardness I felt.

    I went on to work with the guy for a long time and about ten years later, I reminded him of the incident. He didn't remember it. So it obviously had a bigger impact on me than it did on him. Thanks goodness.

    Isn't it funny how it's so often the little details that send our toes curling!
    I went into a well-known electrical store for a ribbon for an electric type-writer (before they were obsolete).
    The slick, unlikable guy asked, "Is it for a Brother?", referring to one of the main manufacturers.
    I promptly replied, "No, it's for me"
    A nothing, non-event...but
    AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR(bites fingers).

    Similar one happened to me just last week. I've been living in Birmingham but moved a couple of months ago and accidentally rang a Birmingham taxi company for a cab. When I stated my new address the woman sounded puzzled and asked me to repeat it, still not twigging I repeated it and she replied "Oh is that Shirley?" (a district of Birmingham) to which I replied "No, it's Victoria!" Aaaaaaarrrrgggghhhh idiot!

    I remember hearing that my Grandad was visited by a political candidate in the run up to the 1992 general election, who ask him if he wanted a lift.

    My Grandad's reply was "No thanks, there's already one at the end of the corridor"!

    I sure had a crazy mind as a wee kid. I used to call the foam mushroom sweets 'condoms'. I didn't even know what a real condom was back then, I was so laughed at. Just thinking about this little memory makes me want to blush.

    off topic but this reminds me of my gran who used to make up her own words for things. For years she'd go to the greengrocers and ask for 'capookas'. She was after capsicums, but they never bothered to correct her she wouldn't be told either!
