What has been the most embarrassing thing to happen to you?

The first time I went to Subway I ordered a ‘6ft hearty Italian’ and the boy behind the counter said, “Sorry love, this is not that kind of shop”!

Then I asked for ‘Al Pacinos’ instead of Jalapenos!!

At this point the boy just looked at me and asked “Are you for real?” Me and my friend went into fits of laughing just out of pure embarrassment!
