Most Humiliating Moment Ever??*

So I was walking out of Kmart w/ the Bud-uh boy, so excited about finding a pretend "ChickstheHicks" car, (btw if anyone knows where to find a real one, let me know before Christmas!!), and we we headed straight to our van. It's the red one with a scratch on the side.

Hmmm...my whooper isn't unlocking the doors, that's weird. I'll get closer. Still, nothing. I try the sliding door. Won't open. Hmm, maybe I have to stick my key in the door and unlock it the old fashioned way. Won't go in. WTF??

GASP! Who is sitting in the front seat of my van?? And where are my carseats? Those aren't my carseats--

Auuuuhhhh! My van is the next row over...(people inside just glaring at me now) "I'm so sorry! My van is over there -----> (laughing hysterically now because I don't know what else to do--plus I have to YELL to be heard through their tinted windows )--"Auugghh, I am SO, SO SORRY!!" (humiliated and walking away with my head hung in shame)

All the while, Kmart employees are gathering carts in the parking lot, others walking to their cars...ALL witnesses to to the most humiliating moment of my life!*

*ok, so surely there are other times, but this tops the list for now.

  1. I've actually SAT down in the wrong car, before I looked around, figured out 'this isn't my shit' and got the hell outta there.

    That's so funny - and lmao that the person just sat there while you tried to get in their car. I would have at least stuck my head out the door and said "I think you have the wrong car".

  3. Okay...mine is slightly similar, except instead of trying to get into a car that wasn't mine with an old man sitting in the front, I hit a parked car that wasn't mine with an old man sitting in the front, who had just come back from his chemotherapy treatment. And oh my goodness, I hope nothing ever tops that humiliation!

  4. That's awesome!!

    One time, I got off the wrong floor in my highrise apartment, walked into my door with Nathan - there was this couple standing there and I think he was showing her his new blackberry or something.. they were totally engrossed. I thought they were in my apartment. I screamed bloody murder, yanked Nate like a dog kite - we flew out the door and up to the right floor. I didn't say anything to those people!

    Can you imagine if someone just opened your door and screamed at you - only to turn and run out?? I think about that and laugh sometimes.

  5. Since I've got a NEW (to me) TRUCK, I've done this a couple of times over the last two weeks. Not that that is very impressive, just looking for an excuse to mention my NEW (to me) TRUCK.

  7. That is hilarious! I can sooo see myself doing that. I really can't believe there was someone inside the car the entire time! Hilarious, I tell you. Thanks for the good laugh.

  8. I did the "Erika Move" as well.

    Except when I looked over at the driver seat, instead of my husband there was a 90-year-old man looking like I was going to rob him or rape him or both.

    I was just happy the old guy lived through the whole experience.

  12. Now THAT is freakin' FUNNY!

    I did something like that in an airport once with a KID! A child was playing with a little boy, I thought they were brothers. The mother came to the side of the one boy and started to leave, withOUT the other. I mean the kid started to follow them slowed down. I scopped him up and headed for the woman when I was tapped on the shoulder by a VERY nervous woman, lol! I mean WHERE the hell was she? There was nobody else sitting there. Man that was MESSED up. Talk about.."OMG, I'm SOOOOO sorry!" LOL!!

  13. It's really bad where I live 'cuz almost no one even looks their car doors. Once I even got my key partway in someone else's ignition (wow, that sounds so not right--even not righter than it actually is)before realizing my mistake.

  16. I tried to get in my car at Quik Trip only to find that my car was 2 cars over with a van inbetween mine and the one that LOOKED.JUST.LIKE.MINE!

    The guy that owned it couldn't have waited until I got to my car to come out!! He had to come out when my car was in his keyhole trying to get it unlocked!
