Embarrassing moments PART II, How to deal???

There are so many embarrassing moments that happen to people that it was required for a Part TWO! The previous ones were some of the most common embarrassing moments, but guess what…there are more. And of course, there is an answer to every situation. If you have missed part one, be sure to view the following:


#4.
THE MISTAKEN IDENTITY!
If you haven’t figured it out by now, we all have a twin. And to make matters more complicated everyone outside of your culture tends to look exactly the same. So what do you do when you walk up to someone you know or do not know and mistake them for someone else? Or heaven forbid you take the extra mile and call them a different name or start having a conversation with a stranger believing that you are speaking to a long lost buddy.


THE SOLUTION
The answer to this is quite simple. If you randomly come up to someone and start speaking to them as though they were your long lost buddy only to figure out he or she is a completely different person, you can easily tell the person they are incredibly gorgeous and they look like a hotter (or more beautiful, depending on whom you are speaking to) version of your friend.  Or you can casually laugh it off and pretend that the mistaken identity problem, was the person just heard you wrong. This can be achieved by using a half smile to convince them that, you totally didn’t call them the “unknown” name. Afterwards,   immediately change the conversation to something general like the weather. If you really do not know the person, they will probably just assume you are a very nice small town person trying to start a conversation. What better way to say you are a great person then starting off a friendly conversation with random people? Fake it til you make it!

#3.
THE ACCIDENTAL TOUCH!
Have you ever accidentally leaned in really close to someone, and without thinking placed your hands somewhere you probably shouldn’t have. Maybe you were in a meeting or passing by and you accidentally brushed into another person’s rump? How about being in a huge social gathering and being forced to practically grind on everyone that is beside you. This happens more frequently than you think and of course the “accidental touch” can be more detrimental and risky for guys. To the naked eye, this would look completely like flirting or as they say in the old days, inappropriate or “fresh.”

THE SOLUTION:
Pretend that you are accidentally falling and you were simply trying to grasp for whatever was the closest to you. It is only natural to try to catch your balance if you are suddenly getting ready to fall on top of your face. Guys, if you accidentally brush against a boob, it is better for you to try this method than for your coworker or stranger to suddenly turn around and slap the taste out of your mouth.

#2.
THE ACKWARD LAUGH!
You are in the middle of a serious meeting, either in class, a job presentation or even worse a funeral.  All of a sudden something crosses your mind out of the blue that tickles you. But instead of laughing in your mind, you accidentally laugh out loud (LOL). Only there is a time and place for everything, and sometimes laughing at certain times is just not appropriate.
THE SOLUTION:
There are several solutions to this problem depending on where this accidental laugh happens. If you are in a meeting, quickly turn your laugh into a fit of coughs. This a perfect way to excuse yourself from those horrible meetings or classroom activities that you desperately want to get out of. Be sure to walk out bent over while covering your mouth. People will be more concerned for your health and  never suspect that you were about to roll over in a fit of giggles. HOWEVER…..

While the coughing works for a meeting, it is highly NOT recommended during a funeral. If you are suddenly tickled in the middle of a funeral, turn your laugh into an emotional fit of crying. It is better for people to feel obligated to console you then it is to be known as that guy or gal who laughed at Aunt Jemima’s funeral.

SIDE NOTE: All of these tactics should be practiced on an ongoing basis. Most of this seems like common sense, but it does take a bit of practice and some slight acting skills.
#1
ALCOHOLIC MOMENT!
Most people have been there, but thank your lucky stars if you have not. The Alcoholic moment is actually a pretty classic moment. They are those times where you are completely intoxicated and find yourself in a compromising position or just straight out embarrassing yourself or those around you.  You may become the laughing stock for a very long time if you don’t follow the following solution to this problem.


THE SOLUTION:
The only solution to this problem is to STOP drinking so heavily. It is not cute, funny or safe to drink yourself into a drunken stupor to the point where you have no memory of what happened. In fact it is highly dangerous and could be a sign that you are an alcoholic. An alcoholic is a person who dependent on alcohol. The symptoms of being an alcoholic include the following Medicine.Net):

  • CRAVING-A strong impulse to drink.
  • LOSS OF CONTROL-The inability to limit one's drinking on any given occasion.
  • PHYSICAL DEPENDENCE-Withdrawal symptoms, including nausea, shaking & extreme anxiety.
  • TOLERANCE-The need to drink greater amounts of alcohol in order to "get high."





If you are exhibiting any of these symptoms, see your local doctor right away. Many people fool themselves into believing that they are not an alcoholic but yet they cannot get through a day without a sip. It is not uncommon to hear a person who is struggling with alcoholism to truly believe that they can quit at any time. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Being an alcoholic does not make you a bad person; it just means you need to get help. Any embarrassing moments that you face throughout life will eventually go away and not be remembered. However, if you constantly find yourself intoxicated, maybe it is time for you to stop embarrassing yourself and get help…
"Don't be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit
 (Ephesians 5:18)."
