Debated weather or not I should share this on my blog, and decided it’s for the best that I do!
I’m no stranger to embarrassing moments. In fact, it’s the main reason I refused to join my friends on one of those silent meditation retreat things in India. I can think of nothing worse than sitting in a room with only my own thoughts for days on end. I’d hit myself over the head with a rock immediately, rather than allow my brain to bombard me with every even slightly humiliating thing I’ve done in my lifetime.
I may not want to think about them for days on end, but I do believe that you can learn from these bouts of embarrassment. And just one of the things I have learned is the value of decent car insurance.
About a year ago, I was back home for a few months looking to find a job to replenish my bank account. I scored an interview at a company I really wanted to work at. Turned up surprisingly on time. The interview went pretty well. I strolled out of the building feeling positive. And got into my car, which was parked in the car park right outside the front entrance.
I then proceeded to, very loudly and confidently, reverse directly into the offices I had just been interviewed at. At full force. And in the direct eye line of a large percentage of the company staff, including the woman that had just interviewed me. Excellent.
This scores above average on my list of embarrassing moments. Yet it taught me an important lesson. Get decent car insurance. I already had it, out of luck. But it would have been much more difficult to laugh off my embarrassment had I not.
Oh, and in case anyone was wondering. Despite leaving a lasting impression. I didn’t get the job.
