The following are the first three winners of a Most Embarrassing
Moment's Contest in New Woman Magazine.

"It was Christmas Eve, and I was on my feet all day working behind the
cosmetics counter.  I decided I would find a place to sit for a
moment.  I spied a tall plastic trash can and plopped down, resting my
feet on a cardboard box.  I allowed my body to ease into the can.
About that time a few customers came to the register to check out, but
I couldn't get out of the trash can.  I was stuck; I couldn't believe
it.  The customers came around the counter to help me - some pulled my
arms while others held the can.  Then my manager came to the counter,
wanting to know what was going on.  He said he was going to call the
fire department, who blasted in with sirens and lights.  My hips had
created a vacuum, so they had to cut me out of the trash can with a
giant pair of scissors."

       "While in line at the bank one afternoon, my toddler decided to
release some pent-up energy and ran amok.  I was finally able to grab
hold of her after receiving looks of disgust and annoyance from other
patrons.  I told her that if she did not start behaving *right now*,
she would be punished.  To my horror, she looked me in the eye and
said in a voice just as threatening, 'If you don't let me go *right
now*, I will tell Grandma that I saw you kissing Daddy's pee-pee last
night!'  "The silence was deafening after this enlightening exchange.
Even the tellers stopped what they were doing!  I mustered up the last
of my dignity and walked out of the bank with my daughter in tow.  The
last thing I heard when the door closed behind me were screams of

       "It was the day before my eighteenth birthday.  I was living at
home, but my parents had gone out for the evening, so I invited my
girlfriend over for a romantic night alone.  "As we lay in bed after
making love, we heard the telephone ring downstairs.  I suggested to
my girlfriend that I give her a piggyback ride to the phone.  Since we
didn't want to miss the call, we didn't have time to get dressed.
When we got to the bottom of the stairs, the lights suddenly came on
and a whole crowd of people yelled, 'SURPRISE!'  My entire family -
aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins - and all my friends were
standing there!  My girlfriend and I were frozen in a state of shock
and embarrassment for what seemed like an eternity.  "Since then, no
one in my family has planned a surprise party again."
