Cringe.

Postby Strum » Mon Apr 18, 2016 8:28 pm

Thought I'd start a topic about embarrassing situations we've been in and I'll start with me last Thursday. At around 2 o'clock I was eating a chocolate Magnum and a big slice of the chocolate coating fell off, so I'm looking around the floor and can't find it, fk fk because I didn't get to eat it and it's bad for Dogs but I didn't know which one got it. Anyway off I go down the Town for the day and get home around 7. So I'd been all over the place, buses, the pub, supermarket etc in my beige Chinos.
Next morning I get up and go to throw the trousers in the washing machine and WTF there's a huge sht stain right in the crack of the arse and spread out. Yep you guessed it, the chocolate fell on the chair and when I bent over looking for it I had sat back down on it and it melted into the trousers. Oh holy mother of sweet...! :oops: :oops: :oops: :lol:

The older I get the less I fall into embarrassing situations.It is now, say it as it is, do it as you do, wear it if you must, bare it if you can, eat it if it doesn't eat you and F the begrudgers!! :lol: :lol:

The most recent situation which could have been embarrassing for me before I turned the tables was... I was on a trip with some very la de da types. A specialised study trip where they all thought they were experts. One morning the most la de da asked me "where is your accent from I just can't place it?" what she was getting at was "you speak common, don 't ye". I turned smiling and said "it's a Blackrock accent, all the poor people in Blackrock speak like me!" Ha, she blushed. Not to be outdone another evening she engaged me and said"I think a sunshine holiday would be more suited to you! somewhere like Tenerife!" giving it the Spanish pronunciation...she thought I would sneak off into my box...but I smiled and replied" would you spell that place for me? I've always wanted a sunshine holiday and didn't know where to go "...she knew I was telling her to F off ...politely of course as we were taught in the Rock :lol: :lol:

I posted this before, but it belongs in Cringe I reckon. :roll:

Pierse Creegan Band
So, we were told we were to partake in a Feis Ceoil in Sion Hill School, Blackrock. My age?.....10 years or so.
Lots of training ensued. I was buddied up with an older girl who lived very near the statue on Oliver Plunkett Road, The Farm....Betty? Farrell. BTW, I thought she was gorgeous. wuu I went to her home a good few times for music practice. :D
Comes the day of the Feis......nerves, more nerves, in the hall waiting for my (solo) turn. Quick gallop to loo and back...they're looking for me, I'm late. MORTO !!!
No time to go round the back of stage for my entrance..I'm instructed to get on stage from the front which I do. I start to play (the tin whistle).....judges are in the front row, the place is packed to the rafters...adults, Sion Hill schoolgirls.
About ten seconds in I hit a bum note, totally wrong, it paralyses me, I start the tune again, come to the same spot, another bum note...I start again....same result. By this time the place is in uproar, all laughing their heads off. [Maybe they thought I was a comedy act?].
A judge beckons to me...he says just carry on past the 'bum note' spot. I can't do this, panic has set in,.......I start playing a totally different tune! MORTO!
The place erupts in a new louder wave of laughter.....I get through the second tune ok, like a robot. Finished.
I get a humongous round of applause from the audience...the judges are clapping, Betty is clapping, Pierse is clapping, the Sion Hill girls are clapping like their lives depended on it. I get off stage by the front, get loads of handshakes etc.
It helps, but I know it is a huge embarrassing screw-up by me. Mega MORTO, mega embarrassment.
I came second LAST. Last was a girl who was so shy she played from BEHIND the stage curtain! The curtain was open, she stood to the side behind it. Really! I consoled myself with this fact.....I wasn't LAST. wuu

Zirco,

Great story well told.
You've just set yourself up for a reprise at our next get-together in Jacks Bar.

Go back to the late nineties , not long after I'd passed my driving test and felt confident enough to try a new route home :cheesygrin: I decided to drive down Beaumont Road to get on to the Malahide road and make my way home via Killester. So I drive down the road and pull in behind a car that is stopped , waiting to turn left just like me :arrowl: It seemed to take forever for the lights to change or a left turn filter to come on . I thought this is getting ridiculous now johndllle Loads of traffic moving on my outside but we were just sitting there ....Then the guy in front of me turned off his lights and got out of his car . I thought wtf is he doing that for ? You can't just get out of your car in a line of traffic . How the hell am I going to get around you now?? BangHead BangHead Then it dawned on me that I had pulled in behind a row of parked cars :oops: To make matters worse , I got so embarrassed that when I tried to put the car in reverse it made that awful noise when you don't engage the clutch fully before moving the gearstick and some boyo standing on the path shouted director.gif "Pick up your gearbox!" icon_pale

So I'm on the way to my driving test in Wicklow back in the day of attended Filling stations.
Swing into the Garage outside Wicklow town.
Impatience dictates that I hop out and serve myself
Just as I had finished filling up, the Attendant arrived on the scene . . .

Attendant: "Never knew them things ran on Diesel"
Me (with my Petrol car) : "What-the-f#'$%& ? What sort of idiots are yiz? Theres no '#&*£$% sign to say its Diesel"
Attendant "There's no sign to say its self service"

I should own up.........
I did the same thing over in my local petrol station a few short years ago....on a Sunday afternoon.
Expensive mistake.......around €275 :shock:
I'd been up at the airport.....the car was getting low on petrol...called into a petrol station. I noticed the petrol was a bit pricy. My Mr. Scrooge kicked in........bought a few Euro's worth of petrol....enough to get me to my local petrol station where the price was lower.
Drive into my local one, proceed to put €60 worth of DIESEL in my petrol car!!!
scry scry scry scry scry scry scry scry scry scry scry scry scry scry scry scry scry
I needed counselling after that!
