This story puts a little laughter in an otherwise sad situation. Why couldn't she just wait and find a bath room. Who would think of undressing in an elevator. I would think if a safety pin is sticking you that you could find it without taking off your clothes.
Congrats on placing third in the contest.
Keep writing and stay healthy.

    I think you fail to recognize that I was desperate to get to my son who had been in an accident. I was in an empty elevator and the not realized there was a door behind me. If I'd found the pin right away, it would have taken less that ten seconds to solve the problem. You can drop a skirt instantly if a door in front of you starts to open. I was thinking straight.

    I can understand that at a moment like this you wouldn't be thinking straight and making your best decisions.

Beth,
Okay so you and your moonstruck friends on the elevator were both "em bare assed". For you it turned out alright because you wrote this humorous and winning true story- and all of us here - got a laugh or two or three..
Thank you for being willing to share the story and be able to laugh at yourself a bit too.

    I probably couldn't have found anything funny about it back then, but now I can get a laugh as well. I appreciate you reviewing it and having a chuckle.

Oh dear, I can imagine how embarrassing this must have been. Your last line did make me laugh though as I was reading this. A really well written piece, Beth, I enjoyed reading it. Good luck in the contest.

Haha. I know these elevator doors. They could be a surprise, especially when you try to adjust your safety pin. This is a very good entry for the contest and I wish you goo luck.

Well done.

Ha! Ha! This is another case of wardrobe malfunction I think. Good that you face the embarrassment nonchalantly. I like the story. Thanks for sharing. Good luck!

That must have been very embarrassing, but you have to remember that we all have had our embarrassing moment. Mine are so bad that I cannot put them to decent paper.

    Thank you so much for the review. You are right. We all have embarrassing moments. Some of them make you smile years later.

This story, Embarrassed, is a fun account which most people only have in bad dreams. The found in public in underwear is a classic.

    Thanks for reviewing and commenting. It took quite a few years before I saw the humor in this.

I knew by the photo that this would be a terrific read. One thing I adore is a writer who takes a dire situation and finds this kind of humor. Well done and good for you for sharing so openly!

    Thank you so much for reading and commenting on this. The hard part was reducing it to a 100 words and still making it understood what happened. It took a few years before I saw the humor.

BethShelby your episode in an elevator that left you red faced. And telling us readers why you got Embarrassed is told by you is so visible, I could see why you got red faced.

Oh that is embarrassing! I don't know why they make those confusing elevators with doors on both sides! Great way to describe the situation and end it at just the right moment. Best wishes in the contest!

    Thank you so much for the review and comments. It works well that way from outside the building but maybe they should put a sign on it saying: Please face the other way. The door behind you will open. LOL
