    0) A couple of days ago I was playing around with my phone (I rarely do this in public, because I find the lack of attention to your surroundings really annoying), and I got up to catch my bus, and I trip and slam my full body weight onto my shin, which was pushed onto the metal steps of the bus. I didn't notice that I actually cut myself, until I got onto the subway train and did a quick check. Luckily, I carry a mini first aid kit in my purse, but I got a lot of strange stares shuffling through my tin of supplies.

    1) I bought a new wooden backscratcher, but didn't notice that it had splinters all around it. I grabbed it to toss into my room, and managed to stick myself in the thumb with a tiny sliver of wood. I had to resort to tape to get it out - I couldn't even see it after. And then...it left a massive scratch that kept on getting wet and hurt. I stuck some liquid bandage on it and it's healing now, thank goodness.

    You can bet I sanded the crap out of it and slapped on some homemade sugru on the handle. No more splinters!

    2) At my temp job (my mum's a payroll accountant - I was helping out with the sheer amount of work), and my mum's coworker caught me looking down her blouse. To be fair, she was wearing a very unprofessional top - very low cut and very "ooh la la". The next day, she's wearing something even more provocative - and of course I look as well. She obviously did this as a test because she deliberately nudged past me and ran her fingernails down my back. I unconsciously moan and arch my back into her, and I almost die of embarrassment. Small office, and my mum's standing across the room.

    Let me tell you, that coworker had ovaries the size of cantaloupes for pulling that stunt. Seriously, to quote Pam from Archer, "you could have drowned a small toddler". If my mum wasn't standing there, it would have probably turned into a beginning of a really odd porn. The worse part is that my mum still emails this coworker, and every time my mum brings her up, I swear I blush....

    3) Game related - my university days, and I was living in the shitty small town. I was browsing at Goodwill for some Halloween costume materials (looking for a pink jacket to modify into a Grease/Pink Lady's costume), and I spot a brand new/still in shrinkwrap SNES and controllers and DKC2. It wasn't yellowed as well and had all the cables. For $25 Canadian. I should have picked it up that day, but I didn't have the cash and I forgot that Goodwill did debit cards as well. Next day? Gone, of course.

    4) You know some bras have underwire? I was wearing a shitty old bra and traveling by subway, when it decides to poke me in the boob. I had to go to the public bathroom, go into a stall and undress (keep in mind it's like freezing outside) and tape down the offending underwire with duct tape. I was so nervous that they had cameras in the bathroom.

    My friends decided to "prank" me at the mall when I was getting my first haircut at a barbershop. They tied my shoes together with the laces and you can imagine what happened after that.

    Awkward boners are by far the worst thing ever.

    One day at work, an old lady came at me and asked a question. I did not see her very well and she had a deep voice. Instinctively, I replied and gave her the title of mister. Oooh the embarrassement. I felt really bad for the entire day because of that.

    Last time I was in a zoo, a worker welcomed me, and I welcomed him back.

    You'd be surprised how often this happens. Everyone had this experience at least once.

    Not really public but Im telling ut anyway.

    Was on vacation with Aunt and Uncle and we were bunking with a friend and their family. Uncle lost his shit and told me and my cousin not come inside because we were wet from the pool. I was so afraid of my uncles wrath and ended up pissing myself in the pool to avoid going inside. Some other kids that were over totally called me on it too. I got out of the pool and stood around freezing my ass for like three hours still afraid to go inside. Wouldn't you know it though I had to crap really bad and try as I might I couldn't hold it in. Ended up shitting my swimming trunks. Luckily it didn't run down my legs though. My uncle saw I was shivering and tried to convince me to get into the hot tub. I couldn't admit that I'd shat myself in front of everybody and so it was super awkward telling him no while I was obviously freezing. Easily one of the worst nights of my life...
