No. There was a 6’2 blonde girl working at the same building as me, but I never knew her name. She was a 10/10 - tall, slender, beautiful hair, perfect face and eyes, always wore nice clothing and shoes. The first time I encountered her face to face, I could barely squeak out a “hey” and felt my face turned beat red. From then on, she smiled at me every time she saw me around campus. She probably thought it was kind of cute how nervous I was that first time around her. I was so embarrassed, but I moved past it0
Depending how embarrassing it was.
I farted while she was walking in to ask me somethin'-Nah.
I cussed a n*gga out over the phone for saying he's the one with chicken legs and turns out that was her little brother...- considering it.
i spill burning hot coffee on her legs while she's in a skirt and she has to go home for the rest of the week- yeah, bye, heather. gotta get a new job. :) Tell jerry I said I'm not giving back his pencil and bailey I'm sorry for eating her strawberries20
It depends on what type of embarrassing thing I did. If I said my crush's name instead of someone else's, and it clearly indicated that that my crush was on my mind too much, or worse, maybe if someone or my crush found my journal with a poem written about them on the very first page, that would be quite embarrassing, especially since the poem lets on that I did quite a bit of Google searching about them, as well as that their every comment has a major effect on me.0
What Girls & Guys Said
Nope. And I have embarrassed myself in front of work crushes in the past lots of times, but just picked myself up and kept moving.
It sounds like maybe you have intense anxiety or feel shame extremely easily if you would want to quit your job for something like that.30
That sounds pretty silly, why fuck would you quite?
I mean you'd have to be pretty insecure to go to that extreme. Just saying shit happens, make the best of a good situation and get over it.32
Of course not0
No I asked my crush out at work but I was moving jobs anyways so I asked him out and he said he was talking to someone. I didn’t leave because of that I left because a code of conduct was violated and that employer told me there was nothing they could do. Would you work for a company that pulled that? And by the way I do see my crush on the dating apps, comes across at least once a month, plus a friend suggestion on Facebook. I hope he comes around some day though.11
Embarrassment only lasts for so long. Will you get made fun of and teased, probably, but then people move on to something else because the jokes and what not start to get old and are not that funny anymore. You have to laugh at yourself too, we all do things that are embarrassing, that's one of the many things that makes us human. If your crush is a nice guy, he will tell you that you shouldn't let it get to you. Nobody is perfect, keep your job and be yourself.0
I don't think it is worth your job. We all embarass ourselves sometimes but you know what true confidence is? It is being okay with our faults and owning up to them and not letting them deter us. Not easy to do but I find when I make a faux pas I acknowledge it right there and it can defuse tension immediately.
"Oh wow thats embarassing, oops" and smile or laugh at yourself.0
Absolutely not. Embarrassment is something we should build resilience against— to some extent. Life is full of embarrassing moments. If we saw it happen in a movie to a character, we’d laugh. It sucks when it happens to us. So acknowledge that it sucks and then move forward with life.
I often share my embarrassing stories to friends and family. They’re often funny and relatable stories and it feels less like I should continue to be embarrassed by that event.0
Why? Why in God's name would you give up a job for something your crush likely forgot about 60 minutes later. Seriously.
But to be blunt maybe you should quit. Allow people who would actually contribute to the team have a job. Because you're definitely not cut out for the workforce or life.0
I had a close friend and coworker who developed a crush on me. Problem was im in a relationship and i began to fall in love with her, too.
I asked her what we were doing, told her it wasn't right, so i ended it. Holy shit, she didn't quit entirely but requested an immediate transfer to another building and a different shift.0
Once I almost shit my pants at work. I made it to the restroom just in time. My work crush was in the building that day. Needless to say not only would I have quit my job but I also would have changed my name and moved to a new city for a fresh start, deleted all my social media accounts and disguised myself beyond recognition from that day forward. IF I didn’t make it to the bathroom in time0
I’m pretty desensitized to rejection, I can take it on the chin and laugh it off. I don’t get embarrassed easily. Hell, earlier I tried shooting my shot with this Indian girl. She shot me down quick. No affect against my confidence.0
No. That's absurd and extreme.
And, don't date at work. Crushes you don't have control over but don't do anything other than let it exist in your mind.0
If I haven’t quit my career of 16 years yet I’m not going to start now especially if someone or a crush embarrasses me.10
Tell a bit more about HOW the embarrassedment happened.
Maybe there might be a chance that he/she will actually even have more attention for you now.
I'd say "Just ride it out."0
I never had any crushes in my life and even otherwise I would not quite my job for this reason.
No way! People get embarrassed everyday! I still have to work with my crush from so long ago. It’s not easy but I’m not quitting over him!0
I dont think so
My crush should in the end find it funny and lagth on it or we likely not going to work out to well anyway0
t would depend on what I did to make a fool of myself. I probably would apologize and try to move on with life!1
The job is more important than the crush so I'm keeping it. We're not kids anymore. Don't run away from problems. Solve them.0
Of course, I would. Who needs income to support their housing, food, etc? Who needs work experience to build their career? Who needs employment to occupy and fulfill them?
I think we can all agree: More important than any of these factors is maintaining a crush who has never seen us do anything embarrassing. Well, not maintaining the crush, but walking away from him. …because we don’t want to build a relationship. We would rather not see him again. Yes, I think we can all agree.
Obviously, we would, each of us, have to divorce the love of our lives if we ever embarrassed ourselves in front of him or her! Marriage is built upon always presenting an artificially perfect image and never allowing our spouse to share in our real life or our trials.
You have the beat answer. I knew you already knew. Just allow me.
Love the sarcasm. It's like I've written this! =)
