How embarassing...

Topic: How embarassing...

IT WAS my first out-of-state weekend training as a new ensign in the Naval Reserve Nurse Corps. Our units were traveling by plane and, as officer in charge, I wanted things to go smoothly. Inclement weather had made the floor in the airport lobby slippery. When I stood up to brief my units, my left shoe went out from under me, and, in trying to regain my balance, I tripped over an elderly woman's overnight bag. I fell flat on my back with my feet in the air. Two chief petty officers rushed to help me up, but my embarrassment wasn't complete until the woman, looking at my dress-blue uniform, asked in amazement, "Are you the stewardess?"
