My Embarrassing Stories…….

It took me along time to remember back when I had an embarrassing moment but I was able to pull it out. When you are embarrassed, you tend to block it out and with old age it gets harder to remember.

My readers know that I am from Cleveland Ohio and we are famous for some of our amusement parks like Cedar Point, Geauga Lake and Great Wolf Lodge. Well, for those that lived in what I think was North Olmsted, there was a water park called Dover Lake.

Here’s my story…

In 1994, I was working for a company called Marc’s Deeper Discount in Cleveland heights Ohio, and I was there 2 and a half years. The Ceo of Marc’s who is Marc Glassman, also owned Dover Lake. The company had their annual employee appreciation day at Dover Lake and I went that year. So, I bought a two piece swimsuit and flip flops and was excited for the day. They were famous for the water slides and at the time I wasn’t into those things but I wanted experience it so I waited my turn on this slide….

So, the attendant says when you lay down make sure you cross your arms and keep them crossed all the way until you get to the bottom. It seemed simple enough until it is your turn and that rush of adrenaline comes over you….I forgot the instructions……got scared

and….of course, landed at the bottom and I had a wardrobe malfunction along with water in the eyes and couldn’t see. Everyone was screaming, Frieda!! Your boobs are out, your boobs are out!!! Omg, I just died. I was a big C at the age of 17 and it was bigger than the rest of my body. I wear one pieces from now on. (not me pictured above)

Dover Lake closed in 2006, this is what it looks like now:

2nd embarrassing story:

I worked for a company called Pepsi for 6 years and in 2014, they had what was called Pepsi Sales Training Day and we all got together for a meeting. Our supervisors decided to get the employees involved in scenarios in selling and because I was on the front line, I had to be one up on stage. I am so afraid to speak in front of people already and of course my boss/mentor told me to go up and sell something to a pretend customer….

The customer was on the left waiting for me to speak and I just couldn’t get the words right at all. It was so embarrassing being put on the spot like that and especially when I know how to talk to the customers out on the field one on one. Some years later, I said that I needed to get over this fear so when I created my casual Dinner and Movie Group here in Lakeland, I was able to overcome my fear that first meeting when I had over 20 people that listened to me as the organizer. I was nervous but here we are 7 months later and the group is doing well.

That’s all for now, thank you for reading. Don’t forget to like, comment and subscribe!! Tune for next week.
