When dd was a baby she had a really ugly doll that had been given to DH as a *baby shower* gift at work, it came with a bathtub etc. Anyway DD decided she loved it and very soon this ugly doll got uglier and her hair was all matted. She was alway naked except for a floral hanky that I would sometimes fashion as a nappy or a halter dress. One day we were in Aldi and DD and dolly, called Skanky, were sitting in the seat of the trolley. We were in line at the register and a lady in a wheel chair and her (paid) carer were in line behind us and they were admiring DD. The lady in the wheelchair had one eye that looked in a different direction. So she said "What is your baby's name?" I assumed, from the direction one eye was going, that she was asking DD what the dolls name was. DD obviously couldn't answer so I answered for her and said "Skanky" and the carer kind of looked at me and I expanded on my answer and said "because she is so ugly". The carer said "she isn't ugly, she's beautiful". It was then that I realised that the lady was asking ME what MY baby's name was. I turned back toward the front of the store and didn't look back.

Dp, dd and I went for a drive one day. I turned the car off and just sat there for a little while chilling out and listening to music. We decided to go, so I put the car in reverse and take the hand break off except instead of reversing it started rolling forward! I tried breaking and it didn't work. We rolled forward and hit a wooden post and luckily only damaged the plastic cover for the number plate... I guess I forgot I turned the car off haha.
I was feeding DD in the mother's room at the shopping center and needed to go to the toilet. This particular toilet had a sliding door with no lock. DD was in the stroller so I put it right in front of the door so anyone coming could see there was someone there (it's frosted glass). Next thing some kids come in and before I could yell out 'someone's in here' one of the kids opened the door. So here I am squatting over the loo (I don't sit on public toilets), mid pee, I couldn't get up to close the door and some lady sitting in the room is just staring at me. It was a good 5 seconds before the mother closed the door. When I was done I walked out and just awkardly smiled at the lady that was sitting in there. I couldn't get away quick enough!!!

It's been one of those days ...Most embarrassing...
Years ago, I had a sick stomach at a family thing. Went to the furthest away toilet in the house (massive massive house) going to the toilet and all of a sudden a family member walks in. I dive trying to pull pants up and block the door.
He laughs, then said says he was trying to work out why the light was on and then walks out.
I finish doing what ever I was doing, go back out and he'd told everyone what happened.
P.S I have quite a few embarrassing stories lol.

There was also the time I went out with pants on inside out, 3 times I might add, in a two week period and they were pants that have a tummy sucker bit.
So I looked like I had undies on outside of my pants....
Thank gosh I didn't go anywhere too embarrassing.
