What are some embarrassing or weird things that happened to you when you were little?

It can be embarassment on your part, or by proxy.

 

When I was in first grade, I went to the bathroom and the stall door got jammed. I got scared and started crying.
That was embarrassing.

 

In third grade, students were lined up at the teacher's desk with questions about their work. This little girl apparently needed to use the bathroom - REALLY badly.

She took her place at the end of the line, but she couldn't wait - instead of just going on to the bathroom, she stood there in front of the class and wet herself. She cried.

Embarrassment-by-proxy.

 

That's why I have never watched game shows; I get embarrassed for the contestants......

Oh my!  What we remember!  I was in private kindergarden and this little girl who was visiting with her mother, yanked the door open!  Hardly traumatic, but when you're little there is no frame of referance then!  LOL!!!

The first few times that I was sent to the principal's office were embarassing. 

 

What can I say, even when I was a kid, when you asked me what I thought about something, I told you.

I wore the bottom of my baby-doll pajamas to school under my dress in first grade.  I was afraid someone would notice under the stall when I used the restroom, but no one did.  Never did that again

Nunya, I was forced to kneel on a bag of rice for long periods of time for talking.  I also was forced to do squats in the back of the room for talking.

Squats? Wowza that would have made me zip it LOL

 

I was benched for the whole semester in PE playing hockey, hitting the puck like a pinata is against the rules .

 

I was a handful as a child.

In 1st grade, the teacher rapped my knuckles with a ruler for nibbling on a cupcake during class.
