National Awkward Moments Day

Maybe a bit embarassing but we've all had those awkward moemnts. Any you care to share with us?

It's also National Supreme Sacrifice Day. Meant to honor those who have paid the ultimate price while helping others. It's not only for our men and women in the military but also anyone who has gone out of his or her way to help someone in need.

Finally, one of my favorites, it's National Sloppy Joe Day. We used Hunt's Sloppy Joe mix when I was a kid growing up in Cali.

    I've done this a lot with waiters and waitresses. Never gets less embarrassing

    The day I met my future wife's mother I was nervous and compounded the chemical time bomb by stopping for tacos beforehand. Right in the middle of introductions I had a loud one slip past the old sphincter.

    I’ve actually never had a sloppy joe. Not the sort of thing my mom would be apt to cook as a kid and I was a picky eater. Am I really missing out on anything?

    Had just taken a new job and my wife was about to give birth to our first son. While making my introductory sales call, I engaged in conversation with the customer, and inevitably began discussing our pending new child. On the way out, since the purchasing agent was a rather large lady, I inquired as to when she was due; she informed me that she was NOT pregnant! 😮

    I quickly said my goodbyes and never called on that customer again! 😂

    Awkward moment...

    First time I ever played golf, first shot, on the first tee. I was 13yo, on vacation in Florida with a classmate, whose dad took us out to play. They were both experienced golfers and single digit handicaps. All I had going for me was a good baseball swing.

    My friend stood on the tee with me. His dad was still in his golf cart. They told me to swing away. So I teed one up and practiced my baseball swing, then stepped into it, full stride, hard as I could. The ball shot off the tee at 100 mph, but on a 90 degree angle, directly into the golf cart. Ricocheted and rattled around that cart forever, like it was a pinball machine. Can't believe I didn't kill the guy.

    No. And definitely not the store bought kind. Always disappointed in beef in a tomato sauce (except for full-blown spaghetti topping.)

    Suggest you saute some chopped onions and perhaps chopped green pepper. Add Steak-umm slices . Before taking out of pan, add slice of favorite cheese. Dump on a roll (perhaps a hot dog bun). Could add some warm pizza/spaghetti sauce to step it up.

    @AnotherDawg that's hilarious. But hey if you found the ball, that's not bad for a first shot

    My dad threw a club once toward the cart, came back at him and broke his nose. Glad I wasnt playing with that day

    Oh yes! At MCRD (Marine Corps Recruit Depot) Parris Island, South Carolina! There were just too many to recall each of them... in just the first 3 days there!!! Too “R” rated to figure out how to share any of them here?

    Working at my hotel back in 2006 and a gentleman who may or may not have been in a crime family was in a wheelchair and needed his car. I asked him...

    ”you guys ready to roll out of here?”

    luckily I wasn’t whacked

    True story of embarrassment.

    I accidentally pooted in class next to a hot chick once. I mean, it just decided to roll out without any warning whatsoever. And that girl whipped her head around towards me, with the look of OMG! on her face. And to show y'all just how smooth I am, what did I do in the moment to play it off? I started beatboxing, of course. Did it work? I dunno, but for some strange reason, I never did get her number. Pffft, chicks!

  • Silver_BritchesSilver_Britches Posts: 1,206 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Oh, and for the record, the Fat Boys were popular at the time.

    Worked as a bartender for a few years. Serviced the bar and tables in slower times. Not once, but on a few occasions I misstated the "Yes Sir" or "Yes Ma'am" to ones that it should not have been stated to......

    Sloppy Joes.....Don't know what you're missing. Easy recipe, Ground Beef, Chili Sauce, Ketchup, Brown Sugar, Chopped Onions and Green Peppers. Burger Buns and Pickles and you are all set.......

    Like today when I sat down in a rolling chair with a pillow in the seat, slid forward, the pillow moved but the chair didn't! 😴

  • amjadawgsamjadawgs Posts: 1,546 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    BTW, it wasn't my chair. I work in a hospital in I/T. I was helping a customer - or at least I thought I was - the customer ended up helping me up off the floor.
