My Most Embarrassing Moment - Who Can Top It?


This is a total reenactment of the crime, I keep forgetting to take a picture of Ross everytime I go there, so I had take a picture of the bag. LOL!!! Well it all happened about two months ago when I was on my Hiatus. I was busy about my day, at home, doing a little this and that. When I had this brainstorm. I don't remember what the brainstorm was about, I just know that it had something to do with going to Ross. Well I didn't want my husband to know that I was in there, AGAIN, and I only had about an hour and a half before he would be home. That meant I only had 30 minutes for getting there and back, and an hour to browse. So I grab my most comfortable shoes, and you know comfortable shoes don't always look their best, but neither was I; so I hoped I didn't run into anyone that I knew. Once in the store I rushed around looking at this and that. Seeing a few slacks that I liked, I went to try them on. When I removed the slacks I was wearing, I got a glimpse of my feet, and this is what I saw.

OH, MY, GOODNESS! This isn't the actual picture from the dressingroom but, THESE ARE THE SHOES I WAS WEARING!!!!!! I began laughing so hard, I could barely keep it down, (you know the silent laugh). After trying on the slacks which I didn't like, and could barely see from laughing and crying, I took the things I did want, to the cashier. There was a lady ahead of me and when she was done, she remained a little to the side of me looking for something in her purse. The cashier ask me how was I doing, and my reply was "I don't know". I told her that I was in the dressingroom and noticed my feet (stepping back so she could see them) and we both began to howl with laughter. The lady before me, still standing there, over heard the conversation, looked down at my feet and join in on the laughter.

When I left the store and was at the trunk of my car, the lady from the store was passing from the front of my car. She said, I was so busy laughing at you, that I forgot where my car was parked, and we both laughed about that. As she was walking away she stopped, turned back around and said, Deborah and (my last name). Then I turned and said yes, puzzeled that she knew who I was. Then she said, I'm Sharon and (her last name). We had the same last name. Then I reconized her, we had only seen each other once at my stepdaughter Shanda's birthday party, and she was a very nice person. The lady was my stepdaughter Shanda's mother! We laughed soooooooo hard, hugged, and talked for a while, then went our separate ways.

Now, the moral to this story is: Don't ever again leave the house without giving yourself the once over. Your embarrassing moment may truly be the one that can never be topped in your lifetime! If you can top this one please write about it, and let me know that you did!!!!

P.S. I've just learn that Sharon is sick with pneumonia, her doctor perscribed meds but says that if she's not better by this Thursday, she will have to be hospitalized. Please say a prayer for her, that she's better soon. Deb

I kick my shoes off and push them just a little under the bed on my side. I think I just stuck my foot under there in one shoe, then stuck the other foot under there and didn't pay attention to what I came out with. LOL!!!

Lol. That is too funny.

I had a weird situation with my computer. My wireless mouse wore out (go figure!) and I replaced it with something much more high tech and prettier (purple). After I threw out the mouse and it's big 'ol remote receiver I realized that my keyboard didn't work because I needed the receiver. Unfortunately,the trash man had already come so I had to buy a new keyboard.Duh.What's funny is that when I told someone else, they were about to make the same mistake!

Sharon Rose said...

Deb, I am so glad you are back! That is such a funny story and only a blogger would have a camera handy to really bring the story home for us. So cute. I had to show this picture to my husband. He ask about you all the time. He knows That I have two bloggings frineds from Alabama and their both named Deb. He always says How is the two Debs from Alabama, what have they been up too? Now he knows. He cracked up at your picture.

Oh, I have to admit that I have done this too! Once I went to work with shoes that were both brown, but they were from similar pairs and they were both left foot shoes! I had to go all day at work like that since I lived 30 miles away.

The second time I did this, I had one brown shoe and one black shoe. The shoes are almost exactly alike and I put them on when the room was dark, so I didn't notice until I got to work. My coworkers thought it was hilarious! I told them I had to go home and change so that none of the clients would think I had mental health problems, lol.

Twice as Nice said...

My older sister did the same thing! Before she left her doctors office her doctor asked if she was going anywhere else. She told him Yes and asked why. He said he just wanted to let her know she had two different shoes on! See it happens to the best of us.

I said a prayer for Sharon.

This Country Girl said...

Oh Deb, that's hilarious and I'm so happy that someone ELSE did it too! I did the same thing only I wore a black sandal and a brown sandal....and the funny thing was that they each had a different type heel. I wore them to a commencement practice for our homeschool group years ago. I was up in front of everyone and everything. NOBODY said a word. Well I went to tan afterwards and was getting undressed and kicked my shoes off and realized what I had done! I did the same thing...except I was laughing outloud and I'm sure the person in the tanning bed next to me thought I'd lost my mind! Well I called a couple of ladies that were there too and asked if they notice. One told me she didn't...the other said..yes but she was afraid to say anything...she didn't want to hurt my feelings! lol! So I've tried to be a little more careful!

So you make me feel better! Thank you!
