This restroom only has 2 maybe 3 stalls. I barely made it in time. Finished my business and went to flush. To my horror the water started to come up. I'm thinking NO NO NO!!!! I didn't know what to do but get the heck out of dodge. I opened the stall to see a HUGE line of women waiting for the facilities as "water" started to flood the bathroom. I ran out and grabbed DH yelling "we got to go!!!" Shuffling and hanging my head in shame we left.
That actually happened to me when I was a little kid in a restaurant bathroom and it scared me so badly that it took years for my mother to get me to go into a public restroom again. LOL

The thought of peeling moleskin off of already skinned, scratched or blistered skin is making me It's supposed to go on the thing that is bothering your skin, the inside of your shoes, the inside of your clothes. It can go your foot skin if the skin is intact. Like if you put it on your third toe to keep your blistered fourth toe from rubbing.

I walked under a tree at HS and into a branch that cracked me right on top of the head. I was fine, but that hurt. I yelled OW and all these people came running towards me to see if I needed help. I was OK, but had to convince a well meaning guest I didn't need a doctor.

At the end of an exhausting week at Disney trip several years ago I lost both my crabby husband and kids while we were walking towards the gates at MK. I spotted my hubby leaning against a railing with his back to me. I decided to walk up behind him and give him a hug. As I was getting closer I noticed how gray his hair is turning and how the shirt he was wearing looked like it was a different color in the sunlight. I proceeded to walk up and press myself against his back and wrap my arms around him. He jumped and turned around and only then did I realize that it was some man I had never seen before in my life. He just looked at me and I literally could not utter an intelligible syllable. I kept saying "uh, uh, uh" until he finally walked away. I didn't even apologize. And as I turned to watch him walk away I spotted my husband and kids who were standing several yards away with their mouths hanging open. They had witnessed the whole thing. None of them were amused. I laughed for hours about it.

I find the best way to apply moleskin is to cut TWO pieces. One piece should be big enough to cover the affected area. The other should be a little bigger than the first. You take the smaller piece and put it DIRECTLY on the blistered spot, but place if soft side down/sticky side UP. Then you can put the larger piece of moleskin sticky side down over the first to affix it to your skin.

We were staying at the Poly and wanted to eat at 'Ohana's for dinner. We didn't have ressies so while my DH was at the room I decided to walk over to the GCH to see if we could get a walk up ressie. I was able to get one and had to go back to our room to let the family know. I wound up falling down the first flight of steps (in front of 'Ohana's). I went end over end - I wound up spraining my ankle pretty bad but I declined medical treatment. All I wanted to do was get back to my room. So many people came up to me to help me but I was MORTIFIED!!! I was in tears both from pain and embarrassment.

You know it's funny you say this (not that you were hurt), because I have actually wondered how many people have tripped on those stairs while at the Poly before. Strange as I don't think that on stairs normally, but for some reason those stairs brought that question out of me even though I haven't tripped on them (that I remember)

As he was coming up to the building he saw the elevator closing and caught a glimpse of us. Being the oh so hilarious chap he is, my husband ran up the stairs and waited in front of the elevator. The moment the doors opened he did his variation of jazz hands and yelled 'IT'S THE HOLIDAY ARMADILLO!!!'

Sadly for him, we were already on our room. The poor father he had just accosted grabbed his young children in a mixture of fear and defense. Mortified, my husband just sprinted back to our room. We never did see that family again...
This is hilarious. I read it last night and it's still making me laugh.

My story took place about three years ago. We we meeting my sister, BIL, SIL, niece, and nephew at AKL. Our flight got in first, and we had a car pick us up so we could stop at the grocery and get some wine, cheese, and snacks for the kids. My husband stayed in the car while I shopped. I came out carrying two bottles of wine, a chunk of cheddar, and some goldfish crackers. Too focused on finding the car, I missed part of the curb and went flying. Smashed one of the bottles of wine, and lost a few patches of skin on my elbow and right hand.

Because we were staying CL, we got an escort to our room at AKL. I can only imagine what the CM thought of the smell. I was drenched in wine (white wine, thank goodness), had blood running down my arm, and was followed by my three children, who were 3, 6, and 7 at the time.

Perhaps this was more awkward than embarrising but one time while waiting in a line at Indiana Jones a lady was in front of us and had on a sleeveless t shirt. She had large arms and a whole bunch of nude women tatooed on them. I spent much of the time in line trying to block my 4 small children from seeing them.

The line seemed longer than it really was.

Mine happened last year...

On the day we were leaving we had breakfast at GFC. We were staying at WL so we had taken a boat to CR then the monorail to GF. If you all are familiar with CR, there's a huge flight of concrete steps out back towards the boat dock. We were heading out the back of CR to catch our boat, cup of left over apple slices from breakfast in hand and the winds blowing my hair in my face. I totally do not see steps coming and go tumbling, falling head first into the railing, apple slices going everywhere! Random people are just standing and staring a few steps further... I was sore for a good week after! Thankfully it was on the last day! DH refers to the incident as "riding Tumble Mountain".

Ooh, does traveling to WDW count?!?

We stopped for gas and while I filled up, dh ran in the store to get a snack. It was rather busy, so once we got gas, I pulled around to the front. A car of my same make, model, and color pulled into the pump I'd vacated. I see dh walking towards it, thinking he'd realize it wasn't ours. No, he opened the door! I laid on the horn! Another person pumping gas started laughing, but the car's owner must have been in the store and never saw dh almost get in his car!

It is a long running joke in my family that water will always find a way to me. The spitting camel in Adventure land-gets me every time. DTD Stitch-yep. No matter where I sit on Splash, front-back-middle-that will be the seat that gets it. Every.single.time.

EPCOT should be safe though right? Um, no.

Couple of years ago on the way out of Epcot we stop to watch the Fountain dance to the music. I was really into what was going on, but noticed that DH and DS had moved the grandkids back away from the rail where I was standing. The music had ended and I heard a loud BOOM. That BOOM was the final large blast of water going waaaay up. Whatever goes up, must come down. By the time I realized that I was going to get it, it was too late to move. It was like someone dumping a swimming pool full of water over my head. I was soaked head to toe, heck I couldn't have been any wetter if I taken a swim IN the fountain. From behind me I hear my family laughing hysterically at me and I hear this complete stranger on his phone talking to someone about how soaked this lady just got at the fountain
I asked DH and DS why they had moved, they said that while I was so involved with the "show" they had realized how wet the ground was on that side of the fountain and knew what that meant. When I asked them why they didn't tell me the answer was "and miss this, no way!!"

On the way out of the park that day I had lots of strange looks being drenched to the bone like I was.

Glad I'm not the only one randomly hugging strangers!

If we've learned anything from this thread, it is to always confirm the identity of your loved ones before hugging them.....or shouting out armadillo greetings!
