Ever Been Embarrassed?

Ever had something embarrassing happen to you? Worse yet, has it ever been all your fault?

That happened to me this week. I accidentally told a lie about someone. How do you accidentally tell a lie? Well, I suppose it’s not really a lie. I misunderstood some information and told a bunch of other people about it. No, not gossip . . . if it was true they would have needed to know about it.

Anyway, I should have known that the information I got was inaccurate because it didn’t sound like something the person would do. So I went back and checked. I should have done that first because when I realized I was wrong, I had to go back and call everyone to apologize about it. That was so embarrassing!

But I think I did the right thing, you know? I went back and did what it took to make it right even though I hated every minute of it.

So what about you? Have you ever done something stupid that caused you to be embarrassed? How did you handle it?
