EMBARASSING SITUATIONS, AND HOW TO DEAL...

If you are alive and breathing,  there has been several times in your life where you have been caught in a downright embarrassing situation. Usually, it helps to know that you are not the only one who has gone through these situations...




EMBARRASSING SITUATION #1
THE WAVE

You are out with your friends and all of a sudden someone who you are completely unfamiliar with appears out  of nowhere and starts waving frantically at you as though you were a long lost friend. At first, you feel delighted that someone would be that excited to see you. Although you do not know who they are, your heart suddenly skips a beat and you graciously return the wave. BUT, all of a sudden your happy smile turns to an embarrassed frown, when you realize they were not happy to see you, but the person who is running rapidly BEHIND you.

WHY IS THIS EMBARRASSING?
 
Because for a moment you actually thought someone out there was overly excited to see you. Regardless of how vain a person  may be, most people do not like to showcase vanity  around other people.  In our society, we have been trained that a humble person is not supposed to automatically expect themselves to be the center of attention. Immediately thinking that a person has to be waving directly at you (when there are literally loads of other individuals behind you) is kind of vain.

HOW TO PLAY THIS OFF!?

Instead of your face turning shades of purple, you can either do the hair comb back or the "I am waving at someone else behind you wave. " For example;
  • Everyone generally has something on their head. Most people (not all) have hair and there is no better way to keep yourself from looking completely vain then doing a quick sweep of your hand through your hair after you are caught with your hand in the air. Generally, the person waving will never notice because they were never waving at you in the first place.
  • OR, if you are really bold, you can repeat the same wild hand gestures and just pretend you are waving at some other fella behind them! This will catch them off guard and save your reputation.


 EMBARRASSING SITUATION #2
THE STOMACH GROWL


You are in a meeting or a classroom, and all of a sudden you hear this loud sound. It is an obnoxious noise that sounds like a combination of a fret train and a car crash. It is your stomach crying for a meal. Although this is a natural part of our lives, for some unknown reason, loud uncontrollable sounds that are coming from our stomach (or anywhere else from our body)  are simply embarrassing. If you are a skinny person then everyone assumes your stomach is growling because you don't eat and if you are curvy, people assume you eat too much.
 

HOW TO PLAY THIS OFF!?
  • Our stomach usually cries at particular times of the day. Recognize those time periods and save yourself something small to snack on to quiet down that freight train sound.
  • OR, Just stare at the person sitting across from you appalled that they could let such horrendous sounds come out of their body. In your fake quiet voice, ask the person who is sitting next to you if they would like a sandwich.






EMBARRASSING SITUATION #3
THE "UNCONTROLLABLE BOWEL MOVEMENT"


When you gotta go, you gotta go, but let's face it doing number two in a work or school environment can get quite messy. Using a public toilet in the workforce or school can be devastating.

HOW TO PLAY THIS OFF!?
  • Try to go to the bathroom at specific times before you leave your house. Of course this will only work with trained professionals since our body has a mind of it's own.
  • OR, wait around to see who the most smelly person is and follow them inside the bathroom. You will probably need a clothes pin over your nose to avoid his (or her) smell, but trust me, if everyone already knows this person as being "stinky" unless they have a nose like hound dog, they will NEVER suspect that you were the person who took that horrid dump!


EMBARRASSING SITUATION #4
THE AWKWARD LAUGH


Just envision, you are at you family member's funeral and all of a sudden a cute thought passes through you mind and at this particular moment, you laugh. Everyone knows that there is a time and a place for everything, but we cannot help some of the thoughts that pass through our heads. The last thing you want is too appear cold-hearted and wicked. This is especially true if you happen to be attending the funeral of an in -law, maybe a mother in law?

The truth is, some people laugh out of nervousness, but that cannot be explained, especially in certain sticky situations.
 

HOW TO PLAY THIS OFF!?
 
  • Sit next to someone you know is a  flat out pompous jerk. That way if you accidentally proceed to laugh, they will think it is that "pompous" guy and not you!
  •  OR, you can turn your brief chuckle into an enormous outburst of tears. After all, many people claim they are crying but sometimes it sounds like a mixture between dog scratches and a broken record.




     
EMBARRASSING MOMENT #5
TALKING ABOUT YOUR BOSS, WITH THEM STANDING BEHIND YOU.


"My boss is a complete loser! Can you believe this guy. He is super arrogant and pompous! What is wrong with..."

BEFORE you make a decision to talk poorly about a person, at least have the audacity to make sure they are not standing directly behind you. Do not expect anyone to bail you out in this situation. It is likely that the person you were gossiping with probably shares the same job and he or she NEEDS to pay their bills. Sorry, but you may be on your own in this situation.

Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone (Colossians 4:6)."
 
 
BOTTOM LINE: Everyone has embarrassing situations. They usually are not as bad as we think. Our minds have a very high tendency to fabricate details that never exist. The best way to get over any embarrassing situation is time. If you are in high school and something completely not funny happens to you, give it about 2 hours, there will be someone else who did something even more ridiculous than you...
