While I can't remember my most embarrassing moment, I witnessed what had to be a most embarrassing moment for a classmate. Last night, I was in a class with people of varying levels of education. Some have Masters, some JD's, some BA's and some have less education. There came a point during our classroom discussion when the topic was auctions. The instructor picked two people in the class and asked them to immulate an auction by going back and forth starting with $75,000 bidding with increasing increments of $500.00. Here is how it went:
Student No. 1 : $75,000!
Student No. 2 : (...thinking...thinking...thinking...scribbles in note pad...thinking) 75,500.
Student No. 1 : $76,000.00
Student No. 2 : $80,000.00!
Class bursts into laughter
Student No. 2: (To instructor) Man, we just got finished eating and you want us to think?
The discussion went on like this for awhile with the class roaring thunderously with laughter. I could just imagine how student no. 2 must have felt. I probably would have crawled under a table if that were me. One person yelled out, "You are sending HER to an AUCTION?!"
If that were me, I would have crawled under a table. Hopefully, she will forget that day just as I forgot my most embarrassing time. I wanted to publish it hear, but I sincerely couldn't recall it. Maybe it was that time I had a fiber attack while talking to a cashier/clerk -she wouldn't shut up! I remember a volcanic reaction in my stomach which hurt like the dickens It was a small store, no bathroom. She would not shut up and even if she did, I doubted if I could walk at all -so I had to let out just a tiny tiny bit of air -but it was loud and my brakes wouldn't work. I just stood there and looked at her -still unable to move (God knows what would have happed if I dared move and inch) she stared back at me in utter amazement. When the clerk finally shut up, I had to walk out of there with my butt tight tight tight all the way across the street I was close to tears.
