Default The Embarrassing Story Thread

Okay I will start this embarrassing thread.

Rules:

Keep it clean.

At my age (18) a lot of things can go wrong when attempting to impress the opposite sex...

One day after school last year I offered my crush a ride home because her car was in the shop. She said yes, and as we were walking out to the parking and I was joking around being dumb and slipped of the curb and one of my friends tagged me in his civic. I rag-dolled onto the parking lot's surface. As embarrassed and injured as I was determined to take this girl home for brownie points. We hop into my car (Jeep wrangler at the time) and I tried to turn the car over and I was completely out of gas!

I fail. This is embarrassing. She probably thinks I am an idiot.

Then my dad came and put gas into my car. That topped it off.

But hey, at least i got to take my crush home.

Not the most embarrassing. But it's one I am willing to share.

Wow dude. That's a rough like half hour

Hit by a car, then out of gas, THEN pops shows up. I'm surprised she stuck around as long as she did.

ok here is one of mine !
Should I say "Don't try this at Home" ?

When I was 17.......

I was so excited about firing up my new super charged 671 Blower in my 70 Camaro that I neglected to see if it was in gear. It was parked in my parent’s garage in front of their brand new washer and drier delivered the day before from Sears. When I started the engine the whine of the blower sounded so kool I had to wing the throttle just once. I was standing in the front of the car with my hand on the throttle linkage. I gave it a quick pull and it instantly spun the tires threw me up on top of the engine and then the car stopped by empailing the new washer and drier. Moral to this story work on your cars in the

That reminds me of the old Javelin commercial on TV.
"It's a supercharger, Dad. (raaapp,rrraaapppp!!!) More horsepower!"

Remember that one?

When I was about 10 or 11 we had a big rope hanging from a tree limb in the back yard that we could climb, swing on, whatever. For some reason it was tangled up in the branches of the tree and far out of my reach. The tree itself wasn't climbable but there were some low hanging branches (more like twigs) that I figure I could climb up. I jump, grab a branch that was probably 1/8" thick and start trying to climb hand over hand. I got about 10 feet up when the whole branch broke away and I fell flat on my back, knocking the wind out of me. I look over towards the house and my dad's sitting on the back patio laughing.
"I wondered if you were dumb enough to really try that." was all he said to me.

Boy, they don't teach parenting like that these days.

At my brothers wedding last weekend.

I was the best man. All of the groomsmen and I picked up the bride to take a picture, Well I got her upper body, and I didnt really pay attention to where I was putting my hands. One of the ended up on her … breast.

So I grabbed my Sister-in-laws boobs at the wedding

Um, walking to class today, passing period, lots of people, looking pretty fly (ha...), iPod in, in a rush...

Damn ice...

As far as embarrassing goes, I've got lots. I'll think of the good ones and come back later.

drinking at a local watering hole...

playing some stupid trivia game at the bar.
"what is the main ingredient in the Mexican side dish Guacamole?"
buzzed glen says, "MEXICANS!!"
super drunk mexican guy at the bar, "pince chino! whatjoo say about mexicans? soy mexicano!!"
"sorry man, didn't mean it as an insult or anything." said the drunk glen innocently.

a beer passes... drunk mexican is muttering some thing and giving me the evil eye.
"sorry, i really didnt mean that comment earlier in any bad way."
"pince CHINO!! quieres putasos?! (translation: fuggin chinaman! you wanna get knocked out?!)"
"let's do this!"

we go outside, he decides to bring a bottle and try and break it... fail. that's when i realize this guy is soooooooo wasted. the other patrons hold him back. they tell him to walk home.. he leaves.
we go back inside and all is back to normal. a phone on the bar starts ringing, bartender grabs it and says, "Oh, yeah, your dad left. He's drunk and tried to get in a fight with someone here. Come by and pick up his phone."

Couple beers and a shot or 2 later, smoking a cig outside. See this guy me and my bud used to hangout with in highschool.

"YOOOOOO IVAN!!! wassup?! wtf are you doing here? damn it's good to see you!" drunk glen says.
"Werd man! i just came down to pick up my dad's cellphone, he left it here and tried to get in a fight with someone."

"uhh... that was me he tried to fight. i almost kicked your dad's ass... sorry about that."

I was about 15 and walking back to my then crush's house. I was doing that airplane stupid arm thing and I completely tipped over sideways. I went from upright to laying on my side in a split second. Not even time to put my hands down. So we are both laughing our asses off at me. Even after that he dated me Too bad he turned out to be a fail.

Last winter I was leaving a review session and decided to get some dinner to go at Noodles & Co. (hell yeah). So, I park the MINI, get out in my dress clothes from work, walk around the car, put money in the meter, and go to walk. I slip and fall, it doesnt really hurt, and I start laughing at myself. I get up, walk about 4 steps, and fall in the middle of the bike racks. This time it hurts and im p*ssed about it. I get up, not laughing, and realize that most of the people sitting in Noodles have seen both of my falls within 45 seconds. Walk much?
