    Name your last "Huge embarrassing failure" .

    We are looking for some biggies if you got them.

    My last one was an interview over the phone back in october.

    I had 2 interviews on the phone that day. One in the morning one in the afternoon.

    I get the call in the morning go through 1/2 the interview the HR person and then realized I mixed up the firms.

    Me - "I think I would be a great asset to your 'insert incorrect accounting firm here' here is why I am..."

    Firm Rep- "Wait...we are "Insert correct accounting firm here"."

    Me- "Oh."

    That's my most recent. Yeah the interview kinda trailed off from there...

    Chivalry project. We had lords and maidens. We had to exchange gifts. I called my maiden a lord.

    2nd worst screw up in my class though.

    One girl actually said the wrong name.

    Class called for a joust, but it didn't happen.

    I told my professor my name because he wanted to learn all our names and when he came around and tried to guess it again I made the dumbest face and stuck my two thumbs up and he never lets me live it down and it is a constant source of embarrassments.

    How I Changed My Major: A Play in Three Acts

    Act I

    Me:*walks into first O-Chem class* Hey! An old British professor! I'm sure he is very knowledgeable and wise!

    Professor: Carmen reminds me of the opera!

    Me:...what?...

    Professor: Benzene!...*stares off blankly for two minutes*

    Me:...uhh...

    Professor:*snapping back* ...Benzene!
    *hits head on overhead screen*

    Me: *passing final easily, along with class* Well I'm glad that was over with.

    Act II

    Me: *walking into second class in O-Chem series* Time to put my knowledge from last quarter to use!

    Second Professor: This should be familiar from last quarter.

    Me: What the fuck is that thing?

    Second Professor: Know this perfectly, backwards and forwards! No partial credit!

    Me: Fuck...
    *fails miserably*

    Act III

    Me: Time to retake the second O-Chem with a professor that isn't impossibly hard!
    *walks into second class in O-Chem series...again*

    Third Professor: You should know this from the first class.

    Me: Seriously, what the fuck is that?

    Third Professor: I should mention that I curve so that the highest grade is a 100%, and I offer extra credit.

    Me: Uh...ok...thats reasonable...I guess...

    Third Professor: Speaking of curves, here are the 50 honors students that will be raping yours by getting over 100% on everything!

    Me: Fuck...
    *fails miserably*

    Me: Hmm...Human Nutrition in industry sounds like an exciting, O-Chemless major!

    THE END!
