Posted:Stood up from my desk yesterday, caught my foot in the headphones attached to the pc on the floor, tried to move my foot out, whilst still moving and ended up sprawled, face down, on the floor.

Only while the entire office was watching!

And not a bit of sympathy for the nasty carpet burn on my arm, that's at least 7mm long.

Never mind. At least it brightened everyones day up.

And if the portuguese football team need a new striker, I'm one hell of a diver.

Posted:Not me personally, but a friend said she told a patient they didn;t have Hodgkins Lymphoma, when what she meant to say was ' You have Non-Hodgekins Lymphoma'

Unfortunately, she wasn't a med student at the time (qualified a number of years), and so wasn't supervised. She realised her mistake straightaway, but was still horribly embarrased.

We can laugh, cos the patient appaerntly survived (going back a number of years on this)

Posted:I have an ongoing hate/hate relationship with barstools... But this is the most sober and definitely the most embarrassing.

At work, in the kitchen, we had a breakfast bar-type area and then a dining area. I was cheerily drinking coffee on a barstool, when about 20 people came in to have a meeting in the dining area, about 2 metres from where I was sitting.

I tried to silently slip away, but as I slid off the stool, my keychain (on my belt) got stuck on the corner. I fell off the stool and brought it down on top of me, to great jubilation from those in the meeting..

Posted:I managed to go through a drive-through takeaway place (think it was mcdonalds @ springwood) the wrong way a number of years ago... doing my usual thing, not paying attention.

I should have just driven off and left it as a silly memory, but I drove all the way through, turned back around and ordered... gave the check-out chicks a good laugh as they took the p*ss out of something shocking. redface

Falling over stuff moments? I do that *all* the time, too many to recall... very clumsy...

Posted:* Walking through a shopping centre in a daydream I walked right into a metal bin which toppled over with the big heavy lid falling to the floor with a loud resonating CLAAAAANK. Everyone saw me. Aplauded. I picked up the bin, put it upright again. Picked up the bin lid, held it out , bowed to my audience and walked on. I should've been mortified but instead I walked away with a grin on my face.



* The MOST embarassing moment for me EVER was at my university drama society and I was doing group auditions where everyone takes part in a reading and acting out the script, interchanging roles. The director who was cast kepting getting me to read for the lead a number of times towards the end. In my head this meant that I was a dead cert. When it came to announcing the final cast line up, the director named the girl who would play the female lead and I pointed at her and said 'Hey! You're my girlfriend!' before realising they hadn't actually announced the lead. It turned out to be someone else who was reading for the other play... Nothing was made of it but I still cringe at the thought of it!

Posted:When I first got SPD pedals (ones where the sole of your shoe clips into pedal) I was riding up to traffic lights, unclipped my right foot, the bike fell to the left and I ended up, bike and all in the back of convertable BMW.

There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.

Posted:I woke up one morning, soon after I moved into the house I'm in now, and went to get some breakfast. I was dressed only in a pair of lacy knickers and a vest t-shirt. When I got to the kitchen I could smell this really pungent stink of cat spray. I cursed the local tomcat loudly (as the smell was due to him spraying my back door. He was mad because he couldn't get the cat flap open to get in and eat my cats food). I opened the door taking a bowl of hot water and disinfectant with me. I washed the door but found that the disinfectant was dripping on the floor so I pulled the door closed so it would drip outside instead. It wasn't until the door closed I realised I hadn't flicked the catch up. I was left locked out standing outside my back door.



I had to go next door and wake the old couple up so I could use their phone to call my sister to get her spare key for my house. My new neighbour couldn't disguise his laughter at the sight of me trying to not be seen by too many people in the street as I refused his kind offer to wait for the arrival of the key in his house. I was too embarrassed and hung about in the cold by my back door for 20 mins waiting for my sister instead ubblol I just couldn't bring myself to sit sipping tea with a 65 year old neighbour in a pair of see through pants and a white vest. After all I'd only known him a couple of weeks! ubblol
