It's really only embarrassing in retrospect. When I was three, I was singing in a Christmas pagent at Church when my panties fell off. Non plussed I just stepped out of them and kept singing!

My Dad was playing Santa Claus one year, and his boss lived next door to us (that is a whole other story!) and told me to call there and tell him to put his kids in another room as he was coming in the back door.  I called and quickly rattled off that message.  There was silence on the other end and a voice asked, "Who is this?"  Yep!  Wrong number!

The earliest embarrassing thing I can remember was when I was about three years old.  I was taught about the phone at a very early age because my father was self-employed and our house was also his office.  I was taught to answer the phone in a business-like voice.  I was not taught about how to call someone, but I somehow figured it out, or thought I did.

 

I tried to call my favorite uncle.  I might have just dialed random numbers because it was before I knew how to read.  Anyway a man answered the phone who I thought was Uncle Bill.  I don't think I told him who I was, but just started to talk to him.  I don't remember what I told him or how long I talked before I finally learned I was talking to a total stranger.

You're lucky!

 

That's fairly mild!

I told a joke with a very adult punch line around 5th grade.

The teacher was not happy and sent me too the principals office where he told me why it was not appropriate for someone my age to have told in school.
