Can you tell us about your most embarrassing moment?

Attending a funeral and the car park was overcrowded. I had to park on grass and attempted to jump a fence as the most direct route to the church when my trousers ripped right along the seam from back to front. My long coat saved me that day, but I will always remember having to hold my legs together for what felt like hours sitting down in case anyone noticed.
