When I was about 16 and still terribly self-conscious about all things menstrual, I was on my way to school on the back seat of the bus, boys from our brother school seated all around, when my emergency spare tampon rolled on of my bag and on to the floor. Up and down the bus aisle it slowly rolled with every stop and start. I could hardly claim it, so I just sat there in agony trying to pretend it wasn't mine. Longest bus ride of my life.
I also answered the door while on maternity leave caring for my baby to a young guy from Origin, trying to sign me up. Sleep deprived and cranky, I told him in no uncertain terms that I was not interested. Unlike most of these sorts of callers, he snuck away looking relieved to make good his escape. I was impressed with my own (uncharacteristic) assertiveness until I realized my boob had been out the entire time.
Ooh menstrual reminded me... This is a pretty bad one!
I was 16 and very new to tampons. I was at school and removed one... It was very full and I yanked it much too hard. Now don't ask me how I managed this, but after I pulled it, it arced through the air and came back, hitting the collar of my school shirt with quite some force. And marking it quite badly.
I had a friend in the toilets who helped me get most of it off, but not all. For some weeks we referred to it in hushed tones as "The Day of the Swinging Tampon".
These are hilarious. when my 2 dd were at the park, my 3 year old desperate for a poo, I had nothing with me, was holding my newborn, she did a cracker of a whippy right on the path not even behind a tree, I was mortified, we fled, but then again I have seen worse.
Sorry ladies but I'm subbing to read later, some of these are hilarious.
I've seriously done soooo my embarrassing things that its expected
When I was in year 7, one day I was so embarrassed when one of the girls from the popular crowd pulled me aside and quietly told me I had a blood stain on my school uniform skirt :-( That was at lunch time. So for the rest of the arvo, I carried my art folder covering the back of my skirt!
You reminded me of another...when DS1 was small I took him to a sweet but slightly dodgy tourist attraction called Storybook Cottage. One of the attractions was a maze made out of fencing wire. DS got into the centre and was overcome by the need to go. Not only did he do a rather sizeable number two in full sight of everyone, he then proceeded to pick it up in his hand and carry it right out through the maze to me.
