    So I was headed off to do some cardio and grabbed a bottle of water from my kitchen.

    It was luke-warm so I opened up my fridge and there were 2 cold water bottles in the door I figured one of my roommate put in there, I just swapped them out.

    So on the stairmaster about 12-15 mins in still climbing full speed, just twist the and off and throw about a third of the bottle back, before I realize it's not water...it's neat vodka.

    Coughing and spluttering, trip and get thrown down the stairs and on to floor, run to the bathroom and just puke all over the sink.... icon_cry.gif

    Funny story! Chugging a mouth-full of vodka might surprise me, but woudln't cause me to hardly miss a beat. I'm not being facetious when I say that your intolerance of alcohol is to be admired, not disparaged.

    I am trying to figure out why the vodka was in a water bottle! At least it could have been with oranje juice for some ready made screwdrivers.

    It's on campus...

    There are rent-a-cops everywhere, being students they have discovered that costco sells a gallon of vodka which is easily concealed half liter water bottles.

    I asked them, they were going to a concert on campus later, they can buy plenty of mixers there but it was a dry arena...plus they are all 19

    A gentleman is never surprised by his liquor. [SNIFF]

    Or... is that a drunk? LOL!

    OK, good point, and I gotta admit I've never been in the same exact situation as you. Thanks for being willing to share an awkward yet funny moment. A great story! icon_biggrin.gif

    If it were Goose, Level, or Wyborowa I would have called you a wasteful jaina. Wow that sucks though hahaha. My most embarrassing incident was when I tried to bench 345 lbs without a spot. I had done it before and didn't think it was going to be a problem. Apparently I just wasn't feeling it that day. I got the bar off the rack came down, made good contact with my chest then started to push up. I got about 4 inches off my chest and realized I wasn't going to make it all the way up. I tried to explode and get the bar on to the lowest hooks only about 2 inches higher. I managed to get the right side on but not the left. The bar came back down and rested on my neck. I couldn't let the plates slide off cuz I had collars on both sides. For about 3 seconds I thought about my options decided fuck it and yelled for help. This dude wasn't too far off saw me and yanked the bar off my neck. I had a nice strawberry and a new hero in my life lol. I have 2 other funny ones. Still not as fun as chugging booze at 165 bpm though. I'll share them later. I need to start getting ready for workicon_neutral.gif

    Ah, a story... In 1981 I was taking a 6-month US Army officer's course, including lots of tactics. One of the things we did for a whole week was play a "Dunn Kempf" battle simulation game on a huge terrain table, complete with miniature tanks, artillery pieces, helicopters, etc.

    As the senior Army Captain in the class I was selected to play the Soviet Battalion Tank Commander, facing off against a much smaller US Tank Company, which represented the odds against us in Europe at that time. Of course I could hardly lose, much of the point of the game being to demonstrate how difficult our NATO situation was at that time. Short of tactical nuclear strikes, the NATO allies knew we'd get run over against the Soviets in a conventional warfare confrontation, which Dunn Kempf portrayed.

    I had 5 Soviet "Company Commanders" playing under me, and it really wasn't very challenging, actually quite boring for me, little for me to do personally. By the second day I was filling my Thermos bottle with vodka & orange juice, exhorting my Commanders to ever greater feats against the Americans, spouting some Russian phrases I knew from my previous duty in Europe.

    On the fourth day another American officer, just promoted to Captain a week earlier, and playing as one of my Soviet Company Commanders, asked if she could have some of my "orange juice" as she thought it was.

    "Ah, Comrade Captain, you know we Rousians don't drink our orange juice plain, dah?" I replied, in a terrible Russian accent. "Are you sure you are ready for this?"

    She innocently said she was, so I poured some vodka-orange juice into her coffee cup.

    "Oh my God, what is that?" she sputtered as she tasted it, coughing and choking.

    "Is wahdka, Comrade Captain. What fuels the glorious Soviet Army, dah? You maybe want more?"

    She declined, not surprising, since I happened to know she was a strict Baptist who never drank any alcohol at all. I am so wicked, dah? LMAO!!!

    And thank gawd I never got caught, because that would have ended my career right there. Ah well, if you can't have fun & live dangerously, why even bother at all? Don't you agree, Comrade RJers? icon_biggrin.gif

    this is nothing like what you were saying but I got embarrassed the other day.


    We just got this new ab machine that set up like one of those old arcade basketball machines.

    you go back with the ball, sit up and throw it at a target and it falls back down to you. I was doing my abs and working with the machine but it was taking forever, the ball just falls so slowly.

    Then these two high school age girls came up and were like "this is the most fun machine"

    I said yeah, but that it was going too slow for me to do anything.

    "well, you know you're supposed to use both of the medicine balls at once, right?"


    D'oh!

    I was at Gold's and plugged my headphones into the TV, but the sound didn't work...so I went to the next one and for some reason there was a short and I kept feeling an electric jolt in my right ear, so I moved to the next treadmill, where the TV didn't work, so I move to another treadmill....which was running unbeknownst to me. I fell down very noisily and went flying off of it. No one said or did anything except for one woman who said something like, "It's hard to use the machines at first!"

    Another time I was in the locker room tying my shoes and slammed my head on a locker door as I got back up. I didn't know it at first until I walked out on the floor and felt blood running down the back of my head. I walked back in the locker room to grab a towel and some queen looked at me disdainfully and said, "You're bleeding."

    I was once doing flys while lying on my back with a set of 35lb dumbells and just as I brought the weights together above my chest, my right shoulder dislocated (OUCH!).

    The weight fell, bounced off my chest and landed on the floor. But that's not the embarrassing part...I never let go of it, so as the weight fell to the floor I was flipped off the bench and landed on all fours on the floor in serious pain. I still cringe every time I do flys. icon_neutral.gif

    Me too!

    I also rip the earphones off of my ears all the time, or drop the towel off of the cardio equipment and have it get caught in something.

    The other day I dropped my cell phone at least three times when I was changing and some guy finally said, "How many times are you going to drop that?"

    Another time I thought someone stole my shoes at the gym because I couldn't find them when I got home. The next day, my shoes were sitting on the floor in front of a locker.....I thought the person who stole them left them out so I was going to steal them back...but then I decided not to. Luckily I didn't because I found them when I got home that night.

    I've also accidentally grabbed someone else's towel a few times when I left the shower.

    Ouch indeed! Similar thing happened to me when I was doing burn outs on bench with a friend. (54 reps wide grip and 54 reps close grip)

    I was almost done with mine but I tried to rest with my arms extended( Yeah, it's allowed) when my right shoulder dislocated and all the strength left and the bar practically fell to my chest. While weird feeling, that didn't keep me from trying another rep( to the same result). At that point I just positioned my arms in a way to prevent the same angle of dislocation and I finished my set! =D

    (Incidentally, that was the first time I'd ever had it dislocated so I didn't have the sense to stop.icon_eek.gif )


    Also, there was no way I was gonna embarrass my self in front of my workout partner, I asked him to work out with me in the first place! icon_lol.gif

    in an area of my gym they have tables with chairs and then this lower coffee tables with these horrible little squishy chairs around them..

    I was at the table, going through my bag, found what I wanted, went to turn around and walk away, walked right into the squishy chair (thats not so squishy on the side) and went head first over it... apparently you can just walk through furniture I found out... everyone had a good laugh..

    Actually, it did not even need stitches. It was a very shallow gash.... but for the fact that I have a picture of it (above) you'd never know it happened. But more than that, I'm just glad it wasn't enough to paralyze or retard me (more than I am, that is). ;)

    About 10 years ago, I was rushing a bit through a workout. I was about to do preacher bench curls. I put the weights on the bar, walked around to the other side, leaned over quickly (because I was rushing) to pick up the bar, leaned over too far when I picked up the bar, lost my balance, and literally went over the bench, landing on my head and the bar hit my throat at one point in all of that. I was in rehearsals for a show at the time and I could barely speak for about 24 hours.

    Apart from a lot of embarrassment, I was fine. But I've rarely been so embarrassed.
