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 meal, etc.

"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!
