How many times have you tripped over your own feet and looked back as if to blame the curb, street or sidewalk?

While you're pondering that there is a new survey that asked Americans to name the most embarrassing social situations they have encountered.

Here they are . . .

1.  Coughing in a quiet place.  52% of people in the poll said it's embarrassing.

2.  Saying something stupid in front of your boss, 43%.

3.  Forgetting someone's name, 40%

4.  Passing gas in public, 37%.

5.  Falling asleep in public, also 37%.

6.  Having the hiccups in a work meeting, 36%.

7.  Tripping in public, 36%.

8.  Your significant other having a temper tantrum in public, 34%.

9.  Your child having a temper tantrum in public, also 34%.

10.  Public speaking, 32%.

My favorite is either stepping off a curb that you didn't realize is there or almost walking into something while looking at your smartphone.
