Let's get funny! Share your humorous public moment!

For those with the nerve to do so, please do share a moment in your life,that occurred in public, may have embarrassed the heck out of you, but in the end was hilarious.  Let it all hang out!

 

                                        ************

 

In 2000, we were living in Tulsa, OK, and it was approaching Valentine's Day.  The chorus to which I belonged encouraged us to form quartets and double quartets.  We would learn a number of songs specific to the holiday, the chorus would publicize "Singing Valentines" for x amount of $ as a fundraiser and off we'd go, starting at 7 a.m.

 

My "Moment" occurred just after we arrived at the Williams Company corporate headquarters, a large highrise in downtown Tulsa.  We parked, took an elevator up 21 floors and stepped out, looking for a small space or corner, where we could warm up, confirm which 2 songs we would sing for this particular person, etc.  In the meantime, I told my group I'd be heading for the bathroom and would meet them at the lucky guy's cubicle.

 

(We were wearing a gorgeous red dress with red sequined top which had a red crepe flowy skirt, hose and heels.)

 

I exited the bathroom and walked across a very large floor of cubicles and perimeter offices, finally arriving at the cubicle of the Valentine guy, when my friend Karen M. said, "Um, Rebecca, don't you feel a breeze in the back?"  I looked at her and wondered what in the heck she was talking about.  She gave me this exasperated look as whispered, "Your butt is hanging out, girl!!!"  Oh, s__t.....  Pulled up my pantyhose and my dress got tucked into my pantyhose and I walked all the way across that huge Q&A production floor...

 

OMG!!!

 

Everyone was in hysterics!

Re: Let's get funny! Share your humorous public moment!

Years ago, being a young mom with four babies on the beach at the Jersey shore.  One of my babies (I think the oldest, around five years old . . . yep, had four in four and a half years) got into the surf a little too deep and I ran in and grabbed her.

 

As I was coming out of the water the top of my bathing suit fell off (two piece in those days, not a bikini).  There were two young guys just coming into the surf as I was going out.  I had my child in one hand and was trying to grab the top at the same time.  I managed to grab it and they were smiling at me, saying "very nice, very nice."  I didn't know if they were remarking about my rescue, or my bare chest.  I assume the latter.

 

I didn't know how many folks on the beach saw this, but no one said anything else to me.  I was mortified.  Next day I wore a one piece bathing suit and hoped no one would recognize me.

If you could wear a two piece after having four children I say, "Wow." I'll bet you made their day. Did you tell your husband what happened?

Years ago I worked in lower Manhattan.  Got off of work one night and headed to the subway. It was rush hour and the streets were crowded.  The elastic on my half-slip broke as I was crossing the street.  The slip fell to the ground, of course.  I just stepped out of it and kept walking, hoping that nobody had seen that happen!

Once wore 1 black pump and 1 dark navy pump to work, no more blindly grabbing shoes out of the closet after that.  Also remeber the time I wasn't paying attention and entered, and quickly exited, the men's room in a restaurant.  Fortunately no men in there when I entered, but some waiting in the lobby for a table got a laugh that evening.

 

Edited to add that I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who didn't pay attention when putting on her shoes.

This happened years ago.  I had fixed up my best friend  with this nice looking guy I had met earlier. I was at her house and our dates were going to pick us up get ready, when he arrived.  I ran down the stairs first, then my girlfriend right behind me.  I knew the top of the gown was ready to fall off.  (it was too big on her top.  I was helping her pin it) And I just yelled and pointed to the window and shouted "Look"  

 

Everyone turned around to gaze at the site of two dogs doing their best to continue their species.

@RetRN

Yes I told my husband, and he managed a little "ho ho" and that was it.

I did the shoe thing, too.  A woman in the elevator announced loudly that I had mismatched shoes on as she was exiting. That was a long workday:/
