Your Awkward Moments


I was thinking of sharing 'one of' my most embarrassing moment with you guys..it goes like this..

There was this guy who is a distant relative..i had a crush on him..in a desperate move to get his attention, i offered myself to serve food during a function in my home..i was given the task to serve the curry...everything was fine until i reach his table..hands started to tremble and in the end...i poured the curry on his arm (right on his shirt) instead of the banana leaf..oppsss...he looked at me and smiled without saying anything..oh gosh!! ..and guess what? i was 13 at that time...

Ever had one of those days when you just wish the ground will open up and swallow you? They are amusing in hindsight, but the moment they happened, you just wanted to disappear. Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way, and we are not spared the blushes or the excruciating silence that ensues after it.

Mind sharing your most embarrassing
moments? Rest assured, you are not alone..

hmmmmm .... nice post Amutha
most embarrasing moment!can't say this one is the most but still it was one of those..
In our childhood day we were rigoursly tought to greet any body with folded hands whenever we open the door. One day I was sleeping in the afternoon when someone knocked at the door and as usual i folded my hands and said namaskar without seeing the person! At the door was a neighborhood girl of almost my age looking at me with that puzzled look ki ye ladka kya kar raha hai !:):)

I was totally embarassed & straightway ran inside my room...

Yeh I used to work at my dads restaurant and I've had heaps of embarrassing moments.

I remember I was pouring water for a customer one day and accidentally I poured it all over his shirt and as soon as I noticed I bolted and hid behind the bar. The customer got so angry he started yelling at the manager, loll and the poor manager din have a clue what was going on.

4u2nvau/Rohit said...

For the anonymous prick, like they din know already. Thanx for telling the whole world. duh!!

sonyared said...

Oh gosh, i tripped in front of my 1st crush...how embarrassing! At least the curry spilled on his arm and not somewhere else(know what I mean....?) Crushes are so sweet

Keshi said...

Humorous post am000nie :)

I've had one too many embarassing moments...I might need to publish a book on them. Till then I'll just mention one here.

Couple of years ago, REM (a popular band n one of my favs) was in Sydney and all of us cuzns bought tickets for the concert in the City. I dressed up so hot (lol!), u know tight black pants n a maroon chiffon top n high heels with my hair dead-straightened...hmm yep nice high heels :) We drove to the City, parked the cars and then we had to cross this major Intersection to get to the Sydney Entertainment centre. As 100s of cars stopped at red-lights for the pedestrians to cross, I was eager to see REM n hastened my steps than usual...n SLEEEEEEEEEESH BANGGGGG THUDDDDD! I slipped n fell on my back in front of everyone, right in the middle of the crossing! Hundreds of eyes were on me n my cuzn helped me out...I was very red n bruised ofcourse and NV stop laffing will ya?

Nevertheless I enjoyed the concert even more 'cos I realised life for me cud be shorter than I expect lol!

Keshi said...

loll NV u ran n hid behind the bar? hahahahaha! that's what a naughty waiter wud do lolll!

Keshi.

tulipspeaks said...

@vivhyd - not to say i made up the curry..err..i thought it is a tamil word, no one would understand if i say sambhar..and thanks for visiting nutritoday..it had been a while since i updated it...promise i will come up with more info in that blog once i wrap up my thesis!

@st000nie - hehehe..2 or 3?? :P

@manish- welcome to my blog..thanks for sharing your moments..but what does ki ye ladka kya kar raha hai ! means?

@anonymous - i think i already knew it..thanks for the info again :)

@pari - don't try to run from the topic..think harder babe!

@n000nie - hehehe..i poured sambhar and you poured water? alright, tell me how old you were at that time..i want to know if it was a man or a boy hiding behind the bar! :P

4u2nvau/Rohit said...

LOL!! hahaha keshi how embarassing.

Heres another one from me. I remember I used to catch a bus and train to school. I had cricket after school so I was carrying 3 bags(my school bag, my laptop bag and my sports bag).

I was running like a maniac to catch my bus coz I was just bout to miss it. As I was crossing the road, I fell really badly and can you believe it I was unable to get up from the road for minutes and cars wouldn't stop honking at me!!

I still got the mark on my knee :(

tulipspeaks said...

k000kie..
damnnn will I ever be the first to comment anymore???
i think thats because i published the post at late night and you were not online..sorry sweety!

u fell right in middle of crossing?? with sound effect SLEEEEEEEEEESH BANGGGGG THUDDDDD! ????? hmm..okie..the moral of the story is
1. do not wear high heels OR
2. do not run/hastened your steps more than usual when you are wearing heels

:P

=am000nie=

4u2nvau/Rohit said...

loll I was 19 at the time. I've dropped wine, beer, mango lassi on customers, but no curry yet :)

tulipspeaks said...

Hi….
Embarrassing moments… a lot
Running down the memory lane… to find a decent one ;-)
(that's y i'm sooo late here)

I was in teens and we were having a cricket match, my ex-girlfriend’s building was next to the ground and she could see us playing… whenever she used to come on the window I used to play extra ordinarily good (I was carrying on with her at that time)…
During that match we were one wicket down chasing a huge target, the moment she came on window… all my friends told me… go to bat… u r gonna rock now…I also went in big style as if I’m gonna hit a century ;-)

And I was clean bowled the first ball :-(
(First time I was out for a duck on the very first ball)
There was a pin drop silence; with my head down I came back…

I had a nice teasing session thru out the evening ;-)


Cheers

tulipspeaks said...

hi puneet..i don't really understand the game of cricket..excuse me..but i believe it had to be something embarrassing until you were teased throught the evening..

thanks for sharing it with us

Arz000n said...

Alrite...alrite
I cant make K000kie run after me with a sword....she knows Aussie-Kung-Fu, from which Im damn scared :(

Z0000n shivers as he speaks out

So this thingy happend when I had just moved in my current apt which was on first floor of a bungalow...ground floor of which was occupied by the land lady. Soon after I moved in she went for white washing the entire first floor and the renovation of terrace.

That time I was subscribed to THE WEEK and the only time I used to read it was before going to sleep. In one issue of the magazine there was this HOT Indian model on one of the centre page.

On that AWKWARD night, I was reading this article on the opposite page of this pic...n after I was done, I went to sleep.

Next morning, this lady knocked the door and wanted to see how the final coat of paint looked like in my room. As she entered, she saw that HOT MODEL page opened next to my pillow. I didnt noticed it coz I never had any intention, what so ever.

She gave a direct-angry stare at me..
I looked at her..and then turned towards the wall with the new coat
Before I cud say anything, I again looked back at her.
She turned towards the magazine
I realized what mistake I had done unknowingly
I spoke, "Thats amazing"
She replied. "Whats amzing?'
I said..."The final coat of paint. Its so uniform and bright"
She looked towards the wall
I quickly pushed that magazine under the pillow.
"No need for further white washing right?"
I said....naah, I dont think so :D

musings (m000nie) said...

lol z00nie u sure had a white wash :)

*m00nie goes to m00n to get paint for z00nie to white wash that model*

hehe

Arz000n said...
