Normally, the answer for me is no, but sometimes something will happen that will make my face turn crimson.

 

Take for example what happened to me a year or so ago.

 

I was at work, interacting with the public, and I was gesticulating with my hands.

 

 

Out of the far corner of my eye, I saw that my supervisor was standing behind me, but I didn't realize how close he was.

 

Next thing that I know, the back of my hand hit something, and I hear him say, "Hey! Ho, be careful there!"

 

I turned around, and saw him covering himself.

 

I had accidentally hit my supervisor right on the zipper line of his trousers, with the back of my hand!

 

 

To say that I was mortified, would be an understatement.

 

My eyes got wide, I gasped in shock, and I covered my face with my hands.

 

Yes, I definitely apologized to him.

 

 

 

So, do you embarrass easily?

In my 20's when I was insecure, yes, very much so.

 

Not now.

 

 

ETA:  Although, I'm getting embarrassed just thinking about some of those embarrassing incidents in my 20's. :-D  There were some doozies.

Yes, plus I get my feelings hurt easily.... I am sensitive I guess.

I'm like you @Plaid Pants2, it takes something rather extreme to embarrass me these days.

Re: Do You Embarrass Easily?

I stopped being embarrassed after I got married at 23, I didn't really care what any body thought except my husband and I still don't. People feel the need to embarrass others because something isn't right with them. If you embarrass yourself then it's on you.

Re: Do You Embarrass Easily?

No, I don't embarrass very easily at all but there are some things that will embarrass me. One is being with a person who is rude. I want to die when I am with a person who treats people (in general) poorly especially those in the service industry like servers, bartenders, hotel staff, etc.. I immediately say something to the person I am with letting them know that talking to someone rudely in front of me will not be tolerated, I don't care who is around. As a matter of fact, I want them to feel embarrassed or ashamed for their actions

 

 It doesn't really happen with people I am close to like friends but it has happened when I was with an acquaintance or someone I work with. I also want to die if that person is a bad tipper or doesn't tip at all. In those cases I add whatever their portion of the tip SHOULD have been and I let them know I am doing it too, so I can embarrass them. Many times they don't even have the sense to be embarrassed though but I do my darndest to try!!!

Haha! Yes, that is embarrassing but truly an accident. Did it actually hurt him or just his and your pride?

I was meeting with a new neighbor.We got talking about local newspapers,and I told him to just stick with the free paper.The one you need a subscription for takes a whole week to print the same junk as the free one accomplishes in two days.Turns out he was the new editor for the paper I trashed.My face got red when he thanked me for the review and said he would work on improving the content.

Re: Do You Embarrass Easily?

If turning red in the face means being embarassed I guess I do....it is one of the two thing about myself that bothers me......I cannot speak in public in any sitting...my face turns red......I wish I knew how to fix it but at my age I don't see that happening.
