Me? An Embarrassing Moment?!?

Ha. There isn't enough bandwidth in the blogsphere to list them all - but T1G asks "How have you embarrassed yourself?"

Again - it's gonna be tough to par it down, but I think I might just have it.

I used to work at an insurance company when I first got married. I was an audit rater - boring..... Anyway - somehow I had managed to get myself promoted - so the big wigs came in from Boston to present me with my promotion and some award. Whatever.

The afternoon they arrived they took me and some of the girls from the department out for dinner at my favorite Mexican resturant. Mmmmmm - margaritas. Oh, and food too. We started ordering liters. One each. And then we ordered more. And more. Then some more. We got there at 4:00 and closed the place at midnight. OUCH.

Anyway - I wasn't really on my game the next morning. Hell - I could barely remember how to make coffee, and THAT'S sayin' something.

I did manage to get dressed. That's a plus. I decided to wear my red dress - 1) it was a dress so I didn't have to coordinate 2) the red really brought out the red in my eyes and I thought that was cool 3) it was one of my favorites. Big...full....skirt. *important fact to remember for later in the story*

Anyway - I get to work and my desk was right in front of my best friends. I was hungover like a demon and she was just as bad. The difference between us is I don't get grouchy when I'm hungover - I just get quiet. She? She's a bitch on a good day, so you can only imagine. Actually her twisted sense of humor raises it's ugly head.

The ceremony is scheduled for just before noon with a lunch to celebrate. We were required to stay in our seats other than break times. That's how I'm able to fill in all the details.

At 9:15 I go on break. Smoke a cigarette and grab a cup of coffee. I'm so very tired - I just slide down into my chair at 9:30. She took break the same time as I so she sat down just before I did.

We don't say a word. The corporate guys keep coming around and asking me if everything is alright. "Sure - I'm fine." I hear her snicker. Bitch.

Finally around 11:30 it's time. My supervisor comes over to get me. All of a sudden she smacks me on the shoulder.

Tammi!! For God's sake, pull your skirt down!!!


It seems when I slid down into my seat the skirt of my dress hung up on the back of my chair. There I had sat, all morning, with my ass hanging out.

All I could say was - at least my underwear matches my dress. And grin.

I sat there for that entire morning like that and my best friend never said a word. Her excuse? She thought I was warm and just trying to cool off!!! Like I said - bitch. (but said with love!)

But, between you, me, and the fence post.....that was about as embarrassed as I've ever been.

At least the panties matched! I cannot believe a "friend" allowed that.

I hate it when my panties are showing. Draw your own conclusions here folks.

LittleJoe - I am horribly scared, yet titillated by that comment...

And the pictures are where, now?

That's just funny. I would have done the same thing if I was her.

I think I would have done the same thing, but not that long.

Eventually I would have taken great pleasure in annoucing that fact.

Ya picked to good day NOT to go commando.

Just don't wear that dress on June 21st ;-)

You know what the kicker is?

I could totally see myself doing exactly what that bitch friend of yours did and snickering all freakin' day :)

Hey, at least I admit I'm an asshole...
