Most embarrassing moment(s). Spill.
(I seriously use that hashtag far too often on Twitter.)

Backstory: at my lifeguarding job, the supervisors test us with a dummy named Timmy. We HATE Timmy. He's usually 5 feet underwater and its really scary and nerve racking. Here the little monster is:

Really crappy quality I found on google.

Anyways, if you're super observant (and the park isn't that busy) you can usually see the supervisor swimming with him. After making a mistake on a previous test, I had to beast my next one. I see my supervisor kinda chilling in the water with Timmy in her hands. I look away in my scanning pattern, and when I return Timmy is no longer in her arms. 

I immediately blow my whistle and jump in with crazy urgency. My supervisor stares me down like I'm crazy. Apparently, she didn't actually drop the doll. He was just below the surface still in her arms. And 5 other guards were standing there watching. I don't think I've ever been laughed at so hard in my life.

What's your most embarrassing story?


  1. Really that Timmy is scary looking!!!

    thank you for your comment. I know that she was nasty woman but thank goodness I was wearing a top underneath the jumper

  2. Haha, that is too funny :) But hey, at least you were being observant! Surely you get some kinda points for that, right?!


Thanks for taking your time to comment on my blog. I enjoy and read each one of your sweet comments!
