    Hmmm, another one that I think I've mentioned before... I have a very strong accent, and my English speaking skills tend to stutter often. Even with my own language, I am not very good with public speaking at all. So I once had a speech, and it took me about a minute and a half or so, before I realized I had been giving my speech in Russian. I just about died...

    Well I never officially took classes or lived there, but I was hanging around St. Petersburg State Uni for about two years before coming over. I did my interviews for admissions and scholarships by webcam since I couldn't afford to come over to the US for that, so the first time I stepped foot in the US was followed by a transferred flight, a night spent at a sponsor's house, and the next morning driving up to school. I remember every strange oddity that was coming to the US for the first time, although I'd like to think I've adjusted to it by now.

We think we understand each other, but we never really do.”

    Hahaha this made me laugh out loud, most hilarious story all thread! Should seamlessly switch into accented English and glare at your audience with a "get better at listening comprehension" look

    What were you doing at St Petersburg State? If you didn't take classes there, were you just like stealthing into lectures or something?

    Ahaha, I was too busy trying not to black out... I have done that before as well.

    A variety of things, mostly having to do with me gaining financial support to come to the states... I pretty much came to the states based on the generosity of those who saw my academic potential and wanted to see me succeed. As well as things like, establishing contacts and opportunities that I would never have been able to do on my own, and helping off to the side with English courses and labs. Pretty much anything that I could do to improve my situation.

    In an ex girlfriend's incredibly small room...

    She was on the bed, naked with her knees under her boobs bent forward with her ass in the air facing the door because that's where there is most room... I'm stood to the side of her when her mother and grandfather open the door and see me ''ready to rock'n'roll'' and their daughter/grand daughter with a butt plug in and well, plenty on show...

    At first I laughed and then it sunk in and by far the worst part was the fact we were both too fucked up by it to finish and then the walk of shame out of her room and out of the house.

    You're stateside? Cool! How're you liking it on this side of the planet?



    Hmm. First thing that comes to mind was when I was bartending. Assholes kept storing our cheese in the beer cooler because they kept running out of space in the other walk-in cooler, so changing kegs was always a real bitch - move all the cases of cheese out of the way, remove the empty keg, lift the fresh keg into place and ensure it's hooked up and running properly, then stack the cases of cheese back on top so they don't get all wet and nasty sitting on the floor.

    Well, this was at the start of the dinner rush, so the dishwashers had been stacking boxes of random crap near the beer cooler door, so I couldn't really shuffle the boxes around inside the cooler. Stacked them outside the cooler door and did my business, then stacked them back in their usual place. Grabbed a few cases of bottled beer on the way out, shut the door. After unloading the cases and returning to the back to break down the boxes and set them aside for trash runs, notice the kitchen's a madhouse and the cooks are all cussing and flailing around.

    Turns out while stacking those cases of cheese in such a way that they ended up jostling one of the emergency shut-off triggers, to prevent grease fires from getting out of control. Entire cooking area was blasted with the anti-fire foam, including the cooks. Ended up having to shut down the entire restaurant for the rest of the day since it was a Sunday and the company that resets and refills the system doesn't open on Sundays...

    Dunno. I already had my two weeks' notice in. I have no idea if they would've canned me for that, even though it wasn't my fault (we'd been TELLING them repeatedly that they needed to find a proper place to store that cheese, for like six fucking months.) Refitting those systems isn't cheap, plus the cost of losing an entire day of business...

    You left out vital information. What was the toy that was taken away?

    I got a really awkward one that, like most of these, is sexually related. When i was 15 I started dating my current girlfriend and she came to visit a few months into our relationship (long distance and 2nd time we saw each other), so being the horny teenagers we were, we decided to do a bit of oral and other stuff. About halfway through a blowjob, my best friend barged into the room while turned the other way. She had just enough time to sit up straight and for me to cover myself before he turned. I ended up sitting there with my pants completely undone under a blanket for about 10 minutes before I could excuse myself to the bathroom and quickly get out to zip my pants and do my belt. Now im 19 and still get embarassed when I remember it, but he can't stop laughing -.-
