In Melbourne, Florida one of the radio stations paid money ($100-500) for their listeners to call in and tell their most embarrassing
stories. This one netted the caller $300.
Said the female caller: "I was due later that week for an appointment with the gynecologist
when early one morning I received a call from his office. I had been rescheduled for early that morning at 9:30 am. I
had just packed everyone off to school and it was 8:45 already.
"The trip to his office usually took about 35 minutes so I didn't
have any time to spare. As most women do, I'm sure, I like to take a little extra effort over hygiene when making such visits,
but this time I wasn't going to be able to make the full effort. So I rushed upstairs, threw off my night gown, wet the washcloth
and gave myself a wash in "that area" in front of the sink, taking extra care to make sure I was presentable.
"I threw the washcloth
in the clothes basket, donned some clothes, hopped in the car, and raced to my appointment.
"I was in the waiting room only a few
minutes when the doctor called me in.
"Knowing the procedure as I'm sure you all do, I hopped up on the table, looked over at the
other side of the room and pretended I was in Hawaii or some other place a million miles away from here. I was a little surprised
when he said, 'My...we have taken a little extra effort this morning, haven't we?'
"But I didn't respond. The appointment was
over. I heaved a sigh of relief and went home. The rest of the day went normal - some shopping, cleaning, and the evening
"At 6:30 that evening, my 4-year-old daughter was getting ready to go to a school dance when she called down from the bathroom,
'Mom where's my washcloth?' I called back for her to get another from the cabinet.
She called back, 'No! I need the one that
was here by the sink. It had all my glitter and sparkles in it.'"
This did not even win first place! Oh how I wish
I had access to the $500 winning most embarrassing story of this radio contest!
