Your Most Embarassing Moment

Day 10: Describe your most embarrassing moment.

When I was in college, Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia came to speak. 

I turned off my phone and put it in my back pocket... apparently sitting on it it held down buttons that not only turned the phone back on, somehow, it turned it on *speaker phone.* So Jimmy Wales stops speaking and the entire auditorium stops to stare at me as my phone is going "BRRRRING, BRRRRINGGG" dialing someone. I pull my phone out, turning red and someone hisses "take the battery out!!" so I try to do that and fumble... and my phone and the battery and the back of the phone go flying down the aisle with a great clatter. 

Everything stops as I get up and gather it back up (with some kind folk's help.) Sigh. 

Yes, I think that was my most embarrassing moment. Until then it had been the time in high school when I was wearing a button up shirt and swung my backpack up from the floor near my locker and it caught on my buttons and ripped my shirt open, showing my bra to the whole hall. But the Jimmy Wales thing trumped that!
