[00:00:29] Hey guys, how's it going? Today, let's talk about feeling embarrassed. Has something embarrassing happened to you lately? What makes you feel embarrassed?
[00:00:42] Maybe you feel embarrassed when you're late for work. Maybe you feel embarrassed when you go on a first date or maybe you feel embarrassed when somebody compliments you
[00:00:58] And shy people often feel embarrassed too, right? For them, even talking to other people can be embarrassing.
[00:01:08] Shy people feel embarrassed when they talk to people, their face becomes red, right?
[00:01:15] Are you a shy person?
[00:01:17] I guess I've had many embarrassing moments in my life too. Nowadays, not so much.
[00:01:24] Since I work from home, I rarely go out to meet other people. So there aren't many opportunities to feel embarrassed.
[00:01:34] Hmm. Oh. But if I'm late for one of my lessons, it feels a little bit embarrassing. If my students are waiting for three or four minutes, then I feel a little embarrassed.
[00:01:51] But in the past, there have been many embarrassing moments. So many, many years ago, I felt embarrassed after a Christmas party with my coworkers and boss. At the party, I probably drank about 10 or 12 beers. I was a complete mess .
[00:02:12] Actually. I can't remember anything from that party but at the end of the party, we went to McDonald's and I threw up on my boss.
[00:02:23] When I went to work the next day, I felt so embarrassed. My coworkers and boss all made fun of me. Luckily, my boss was a nice guy, so I didn't get fired.
[00:02:38] People often embarrass themselves at parties. When they drink a lot of alcohol, they might do something embarrassing.
[00:02:48] Also in the past, I would sometimes try to make jokes with my friends. However, nobody would laugh at my jokes. Those moments really make me cringe.
[00:03:02] Cringe is when something is so embarrassing that you just want to forget.
[00:03:08] Nowadays, you often hear people say that's so cringe or he's so cringy, which basically means that's so embarrassing or he's so embarrassing, or that makes me cringe, which means that makes me feel embarrassed or feel uncomfortable.
[00:03:31] Have you ever done something embarrassing at a party? What is the most embarrassing moment in your life? And what is something that makes you cringe?
[00:03:43] As always, I'm interested to hear about it. So please send me a voice message after listening to today's podcast.
[00:03:51] And I think that's everything. So we'll end it here.
