I Confess (May Edition)

It's Friday! Today I am linking up with two of my favorite bloggers to confess some of my most awkward moments. Be sure to check out every one else's here and here

Finals Week
Last week I was totally one of those neighbors. You know, the ones that call and report noise ordinances.  I had an exam for one of my classes coming up and my apartment is super quiet normally... Except on the one night I needed it to be. Some one was throwing a full blown house party in the middle of the week! So I decided call the campus police. All I really wanted them to do was ask the neighbors to keep it down just a tad so I could study. After all, it was a final exam. The dispatcher sent not one, not two but three different police officers to my apartment. Three. Once the officers got inside, they didn't hear a peep. Not one little note or sound! I was so embarrassed. One of the officers asked if I still heard it and I could do was shake my head. After the officers left, it went back to being a full blown house party again. I cant. even.

Outback Steakhouse
As many of y'all know, I have always wanted to be a waitress or bartender. Its on my bucket list :) My number 1 dream has always been to be a doctor of course but my number 2 dream has always been to be a waitress. So, on a whim I decided to apply at Outback. We eat there just about every weekend so I thought hey, why not. I applied through a national website and totally did NOT expect to hear anything back, but I did and it was from the owner himself asking me to come in! I decided to go in for the interview thinking hey, why not and the guy interviewing me had on an apron and a t-shirt type thing and he introduced himself as 'Dave'. So at the end, he asked if I had any questions for him, and of all the questions I could ask I said "Do you like working here? How are the managers and stuff?" and he responds, "Well I built this restaurant in November of 1992 and I've owned it ever since so I'd like to think I like it a little". Y'all I was interviewing with the owner of the restaurant and had absolutely no idea! My mouth dropped and all I could do was think about if I'd said anything embarrassing through out the interview.
When I was leaving out, I made sure to take a picture of the blatantly obvious sign that I totally missed. Sigh 

For one of my final lab practicals, I had to be tested on my ability to take blood pressure; my technique and all that good stuff. Each one of my class mates and I were split up into various groups. We were told that 2 groups would have a simulation arm and one group would have a real arm. We had no idea which was which until we got into the lab. Here is the cuff I used.
Of course I was in the group with the real arm. And not only was it a real arm...but it was the arm of my professor himself! Ahh. It was so so awkward because you really can't take blood pressure without being super super quiet AND invading coming slightly into the person's personal space. I tried my best to act calm as I wrapped the cuff around his arm but I could not stop fumbling with the cuff. The good news is that after that little encounter, I'm not sure that I will ever have another blood pressure moment that is more uncomfortable hehe. I did fine on my practical but I'd just rather remain within 50 feet of all my teachers. Eek!

TGIF y'all :)
