When you are so sure but didn't act. It could have been embarrassing tooAt times there are embarrassing situations. We get confused and do not know what to do. Though it's normal and helps you to analyze later what went wrong or what was the reason for that situation, at that moment you get perplexed. While at times the situation turns embarrassing where you do not get any idea about how it turned out in that way, there are other situations where you are somehow responsible for making the moments embarrassing. It is not necessarily that you are embarrassed in that situation, the other person or the group can also be embarrassed by certain acts. It may be some questions or replies that the other person found embarrassing.
At times you may laugh at yourself thinking if you did it that way the situation could have been embarrassing.
Recently, a friend who stays in Bangalore called me up and said he is visiting Kolkata for a short period and if he can manage some time he will meet me. He stays in my locality. I thought of giving him a call but somehow forgot later. Now in the evening, I was observing a person, turned backwards, from a distance and I moved forward. He is wearing his usual dress and carrying a bag while talking on his phone. I moved ahead slowly and was about to pat him on his shoulder. I do not know what triggered me to stop and I stood there for a moment. The person suddenly turned his face backwards and I was surprised! It's not my friend though I was sure that it is him in the usual attire.
Much later, I was laughing at myself and trying to find out what could have happened if I patted on his shoulder. Members, have you faced any such situations?
