On the left is my travel card wallet. On the right is one of Always's finest feminine products. So I'm running late this morning, got to my station and stuck my hand into the jumble that is my handbag. I pulled out my travel card wallet and swiped it at the gate. Nothing. Swiped it again. Nothing! Looked at my hand, I Caramel Delight, 27 year old woman, was swiping my sanitary towel at the card reader!!! Chai! Lord have mercy!

This is why it isn't good to rush!!!

So the station officer edges towards me at the exact time I realised my mistake. I'm telling you the guy went from pink to red!!! I just burst out laughing! Only me oh! Only me!

They were all 'ROTFLMAOing on Twitter but if you see the pictures you can see where my senses were going. Can someone please console me with other stories of mortification?

    My problem now is that I love both the wallet & the feminine product. Which to take, which to take?

    DannyB, luckily there was no one behind me, this kodak moment is free to pass me by.

    Doll, I laughed at your comment on my last post, if you want more gist on ex-hottie, start from my first ever post, my ex-hottie madness was at it's peak then :)

    Bob-Ij, I'm glad you can see that!

    Vera, you are not serious LOL. In fact Always should pay me for promoting their product.

    Re-thots, huh? Swiped which other way?

    Nice Anon, be there flashing your 32!

    BSNC, laugh oh, nothing do you!

    Mizchif, there is nothing as horrible as going on the bus and you touch you Oyster and you need like 5p or something! Hard stuff man!

    Leggy, don't worry, I won't lie I was laughing myself all the way to my office.

    Naughty Eyes, how do you the know the gate is not female?

    Temi, laugh oh, it's good for you. By the way thanks for asking after me, I felt all warm and cuddly. I'm slightly cranky but apart from that I can't complain.

    Downtheaisle, Live and in technicolour.

    Roc, NO WAY! How can you even bring those ugly yellow IKEA sponsored eyesores into my blog! Bleurgh! You know they are nasty. I lie?

    Sirus, I wasn't really concentrating, I was on auto-pilot.

  19. incoherent Says:

    ummmm mortifying story.....well there was this one time back in high school, i was n my way to tennis. decided to stop at my neighbour's house to say hi (cute guy, older bro in college, both had hot friends aaaah). noticed my darling friend kept looking down. figured he was checking out my legs. so i lingered a little.

    .......only for me to get to town n this complete stranger (who just happened to be around my age!) goes "girl your fly's open!" suicide never sounded so good
