My Top 5 CRINGIEST Moments!

Now, I’ll be the first to say this, I am such a cringey person. As a child, I was inherently clumsy and, even though I am a little less so now that I am an adult, I still have plenty of cringe moments, and plenty of stories to share! This post was actually inspired by a post from my lovely friend Abbey who wrote a post like this a while ago. Some of the stories had me cry laughing, and it has been a post that has stuck in my mind ever since! If you’d like to read Abbey’s post, you can do so HERE. So, with permission from Abbey of course, I decided to do my own version! Here goes…
I’m sure every girl has an embarrassing period story, and I have quite a few if I’m honest, but this one still gives me nightmares to this day! Periods are something we shouldn’t be embarrassed about, but in secondary school that can be very difficult. On a non-uniform day in November, I thought a classic leggings and faux leather jacket would be a fab idea. However, mother nature was not on my side, and my period decided to appear during a WHOLE SCHOOL assembly! Safe to say it wasn’t my due date, so I ended up with a lovely stain on my bottom and the chair. Panicking, I knew I had to find a way to get home without anyone noticing (it was the end of the day anyway LUCKILY). So, I styled my leather jacket tied around my waist, and walked home in a vest top, in November. Fair to say I got a lot of questions and funny looks!
When Zack first went away for work, I didn’t get to speak to him very often so I used to text him sort of a diary update of how my day had gone, and he would do the same so it would be quicker to catch up with each other. On one of the days, I had been arguing with my mother all day and I was really angry. So, I sent a hugeeee vent to Zack about how much she had annoyed me, and even called her a bitch. Only, I didn’t check who I actually sent it to, and I ended up sending it TO my mother! Safe to say she didn’t speak to me for a little while, oops!
Side note: I got off lightly compared to someone I know though. They sent a very detailed, dirty text to their mother about what they’d got up to the night before! I imagine that was awkward for a while!
When I was around five or six, I reeeeeeally needed the toilet but my mother was in the bath. When she finally got out, I was desperate so I sat straight down and did my business. When finished, I just happened to look down into the toilet bowl where I was greeted by cucumber! Extremely baffled, and worried, I burst into tears and ran into my mother’s room to tell her that I needed to go to hospital, as I was pooing cucumber! She laughed at me for a good five minutes before telling me she had actually used the cucumber for a face mask, CRINGE.
This one is a little more recent, actually. I’ve spoken before on my blog about how much I love dancing, and I attended a dancing school for 15 years! On my last EVER show when I was 18, I had to get off of the end of the stage in a really elegant spiral. However, the costume I was wearing was made of very slippery material, so it’s fair to say I took quite a tumble in front of hundreds of people! And an audible gasp swept through the audience, CRINGE.
Last year on mad Friday, the day before Zack proposed actually, we went around town with a few of our friends. It was a last minute decision, so I borrowed an outfit from the shop of mother and I felt great! My shoes had little lace tie-ups on the front, with stiletto heels at the back. In one of the clubs, I was on my way downstairs from the toilet. It was rammed, one of the busiest nights of the year, and there was lots of people hanging around the steps. One of the heels from my shoe got stuck in the bow of the other, and without realising I tried to take another step down. Of course, I fell the whole way down the staircase, right to the bottom! That left me with some interesting bruises over the Christmas period! CRINGE
So that’s my top 5 cringiest moments! I hope you enjoyed this post! Be sure to share your own cringey moments in the comments, I would love to read them!

    I definitely had a giggle reading this post, Hayley! I’m glad you were inspired my by idea to create this post, I think it’s a fun and lighthearted thing to share! I snorted with laughter when I read the pooping cucumber story, bless you! 😂 I can only imagine the horror of sending that grumpy text message to your Mum, so hard to live down haha! Definitely nowhere near as bad as the sexually explicit message though, aaaargh!! Fab post, thank you for sharing! You already know my cringe moments hehe 😉

    This is a great post, such a good idea to share embarressing moments and well done for being so open about them, I dont know if I would! They had me giggling too! The cucumber story was a great one but must have been so scary at the time!!! I can only imagine how awful it was when you found out it was your Mum you sent that text too! Thanks for sharing your stories! 😊

    Number three had me giggling! I of course have a period story but other than that, can’t recall embarrassing moments, I’ve clearly blocked them from my mind!

    I literally cannot stop laughing about the cucumber story – you poor thing you must have been terrified but I’m glad you can see the funny side! I love posts like this – the “embarrassing moments” section in Shout magazine was always my favourite growing up. I embarrass myself so regularly I have had to learn to laugh at myself lol. Glad to see you having a good giggle on your blog – thanks for sharing, I needed a smile on my face after today!

    Oh man, thanks for sharing these moments and brightening my day! I actually can’t think of too many moments that make me awfully cringe – either I have no shame, or I blank them out completely! I must ask about the cucumber story – why was the cucumber in the toilet in the first place?! 😀

      I have no idea! I’m guessing that she threw it in by accident instead of the bin!
