I did the assesment when I was in college with a group of about 20 people. When we were reviewing the results, the person who administered the test was reading, from a book, the different characteristics that corespond with each letter. When she got to the last one, "P" for perceiving, I was amazed at how well the book was describing me. I matched up completely with it's description of "P" personality! So when she finished reading and the room fell silent, I blurted out, "Man, they could write a book about my P-ness!"

I immediately realized what I had said and just stood up wide-eyed and put my hand over my mouth. Then the room errupted in laughter.

the most recent one I can think of- I was on a computer at a public library and because I'm a careless typist..I was trying to type in msn.com and I got man.com instead. It's some sort of porn site so of course this uh big warning thing popped up

I think I remember you mentioning this in another thread (probably about four years ago), and I still remember it because it's one of the best embarrassing stories I've ever heard.

years ago I was my orchestra was giving a concert. I was in the violin section and sitting next to someone I didn't no very well.

to make conversation I was just prattling along. There was this guy just walked in, and I said to the girl next to me 'oh god look at the state of that bloke - he looks like a mad einstein. And just look at the state of his clothes blah blah blah blah blah.

(You know what's coming......)

She didn't say anything so I just continued prattling on about how ridiculous this bloke looked. She finally turned round to me and said 'that's my dad'

I get REALLY nervous reading aloud and absolutely hate it because my eyes and brain usually get ahead of my mouth, so I misread/skip/combine/mangle words. When I was around ten or eleven years I had to read a passage from Acts in church.

When I got to the verse that says, "For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth," I said "genitals" instead of "Gentiles."

The most embarrassing thing that ever happened to me, was when i clogged the toilet in the hotel during my eight grade d.c trip, and i had to call room service because we didn't have plunger, and they sent this guy up, who came with a high tech looking machine, and spent a good ten minutes in battle with the toilet. Anyways, that was pretty bad
