i went to a wedding a few years back; i saw a friend from uni that i hadnt seen in about three years, she was wearing an empire line dress and her stomach bulged tremendously so i congratulated her on being pregnant and asked her when she was due .... needless to say, she wasnt pregnant! fortunately, she didnt take it to heart and we had a little laugh about it. but that taught me to keep my trap shut!

another time, during summer, i was waiting at a bus stop and a lady wearing a very floaty dress sauntered past.. as she eyed up a guy in the queue, she missed her footing, tripped over someone's shopping bag and ended up with her dress over her head... as if that wasnt bad enough... she wasnt wearing any underwear. i've never seen someone blush as red as she did! she scurried off very quickly after that!
Sorry, but LOL hahahaha.

Ok i have another 1, but i am to to tell you.

Re: embarrassing moments as an adult.

I was running late for work one morning and I grabbed yesterday's jeans and a top and off I went. Running across a busy road in between traffic, I noticed something had fallen on the road behind me. Totally embarrassed - I saw that it was yesterday's nickers

That had me laughing hard ..Ah the life of a woman.

The university I worked at back home organized conference, a dean came from NY, etc. And I walked out of the toilet with my skirt on my back, caught up in nylons waist elastic showing half of my bumm to all the guests and faculty I was wondering why it got so breezy all of a sudden

Re: embarrassing moments as an adult.

When my partner moved here, He saw the Puma inspired T Shirt where the logo is a cow. He was trying to describe the Tshirt to me an said something like oh you know they used a cow instead of the Tiger or jaguar looking thing in the Puma advert... So since we call him Puma!

Re: embarrassing moments as an adult.

Many moons ago I helped out a friend's family who runs some attractions every year at the Knabenschiessen amusement park, at a mini roller coaster for children. Once or twice per day, an adult would ask if he can have a ride too or simply sit in a charriot, usually lovebirds or drunken people. But then a hammered relative of mine who the other operators of the attraction also knew showed up and sat down, seeing me he said "Oh it's Nathu, let's make an exception and let it roll!" No wasn't taken for an answer and I ended up physically removing said person from the charriot. The remainder of the shift passed by painfully slowly.

Reasons to become an expat...

Re: embarrassing moments as an adult.

Ever since we took on the pup when she was 10 wee weeks old, it has been endless rounds of taking her out to pee/poo. (She's now down to 3 times a day, thank goodness or thank Dog!) Once my other half hastily dressed to take her out as her face said "I'm kinda pee-ee" and she was sort of crossing her legs and we didn't want any 'accidents' or 'presents' if we could help it. After he came back in, we discovered he had worn his sweater inside out. Another time, I came back in and found my top was worn back to front. Luckily, not many people live in Cham.

Luckily the future guide dog has such wonderful patrons.
I wouldn't want to be in your skin when you pass the pup over. I admire people who can put their feeling behind their feelings.
Respect.

Not sure about that, dear Oldhand. I already love her to bits and have to stop myself from hugging her 20 times a day (I stop myself at the 19th) as we have a glass wall and our neighbours can see us from their kitchen windows. Am sure I'll bawl my eyes out when the time comes. She has given us many funny moments and made for us new friends in the neighbourhood and on the sidewalks.

If we're 'lucky', she and I will end up as a Social Dog team (fur therapy for orphanages, homes for seniors, prisons, etc) and we'll have the privilege of having her stay with us. Who knows what the future holds?

Re: embarrassing moments as an adult.

I like the second option better. I had a wonderful dog and for the first six months I felt she was holding me captive to her needs, I even considered finding her a new home because I didn't think I was doing/feeling the right thing with her. One night I went for a walk and she swam under the bridge under a busy road. I run down the bank and shouted her and my clever Lacey took the shortest way to get back to me. I heard the thud as a car hit her.

My body shook as if I had been hit and I realised how much I loved her and how much she'd brought into my life. When i got to the road she was exactly in the middle, her body formed into an arch. Cars were whizzing past her and when I got to her the lady who had hit her with her car more and less phsically attacked me. She was distraught. I saw my pup that night as my family and luckily she wasn't badly injured. We had 13 great years together after that day and thats why I'm always impressed with your tales of the pup. I couldn't do it, sometimes love is stronger than the need for our own verifacation. I just know i couldn't be so strong.

Re: embarrassing moments as an adult.

The other day, I quickly got on a train with the pup as I thought the train was leaving soon. She was wearing her little 'L' guide dog jacket (still learning, not fully trained -- pun!). We found ourselves in first class and had to walk to another carriage somehow by going upstairs.

After we got into second class, I thought we had better go downstairs again but the pup was either too tired or felt that the stairs were too steep plus the train was moving speedily and swaying. She wouldn't get down the stairs. So I had the hare-brained idea of taking off her leash so she would safely follow me down (she hates to have me leave her sight in public).

I reached the bottom of the stairs and called to her but she still wouldn't come down, so I played peek-a-boo near the toilet to encourage her to come down. Somehow her concept of upstairs/downstairs still isn't down pat. When I momentarily disappeared from her sight, she ran down the aisle upstairs. I could hear people laughing. I had to run upstairs again and call to her. Luckily she heard me, turned around and came back to me. I gave her a hug and finally decided to carry her down. Thank goodness I kept my balance.

Re: embarrassing moments as an adult.

Hmm... embarassing moments...

Well, I once walked downtown Ibiza in a Borat style green mankini and wasn't even remotely fazed... so I guess my embarassment threshhold is too high.

Well, probably it was deeply embarrassingly for other adults who were with you or happened to look your way.
