What was your most humorous embarrassing(print-able)experience?
In elementary school,my classmates and I planned a surprise birthday party(nosh and all)for the History teacher,so she would forget(?!) that we were supposed to have a History test that day.We were supposed to start singing Happy Birthday as soon as she walked in,and tell her it was early or belated depending on her reaction.Well,as soon as she appeared by the door,we all stood up for her.But only I remembered to start singing Happy Birthday….Needless to say,the teacher was not impressed.It was all downhill from there.December 7, 2010 3:51 pm at 3:51 pm #717694chesednameParticipant

I don’t really have time…I log on in between everything else I’m doing…and actually need to log on less,you’re right.December 9, 2010 2:21 pm at 2:21 pm #717696
I once addressed someone as “Mr.”so and so.I thought I was actually being super-respectful,because others often referred to him by a nickname(example-Sruly-not the real name).
He said,”You know,you are the ONLY one who calls me Mr.so and so.”
I was taken aback for a minute,but then brilliant me said,”…Sruly?”
His response?”NO.RABBI so and so.”
I think that was our last conversation.December 9, 2010 2:37 pm at 2:37 pm #717697The RovMember

To show you what a healthy self-esteem I started out with….When I first moved to the U.S. from a quiet and polite city,I thought every car beeping in my direction was a compliment!!I know better than that now!December 16, 2010 3:56 am at 3:56 am #717700Trying my bestMember

I hope I wont be discovered this way but anyway…
I was with a friend of mine going to a wedding in a (pretty) new hall. We both knew where the general vicinity of the hall but not the exact location. We were walking down the block and saw some young guys standing outside shmoozing, so we walked a bit further and tried a door but it was locked. My friend bravely walked over to one of the guys and asked where the womens entrance was. They pointed to the next block. Apparently we’d found a nice yeshiva on a break. 🙂December 16, 2010 5:51 am at 5:51 am #717704ronrsrMember
quiet and polite? my guess is Toronto.December 16, 2010 5:59 am at 5:59 am #717705
