Embarassing moments

Easy.... I pinched the behind of a young lady who I THOUGHT was my steady girl friend while she was talking to a group of people!.

She turned out to be a total stranger! I no pinchie any more!


Embarrassment is an emotional state experienced upon having a socially or professionally unacceptable act or condition witnessed by or revealed to others. Usually some amount of loss of honour or dignity is involved, but how much and the type depends on the embarrassing situation.

It is similar to shame, except that shame (at least in the West) may be experienced for an act known only to oneself. Also, embarrassment usually carries the connotation of being caused by an act that is merely socially unacceptable, rather than morally wrong.
