This is a question Out of my depth

As a schoolkid, I signed up for a public speaking contest purely as a ruse to meet girls. It haunts me still: in front of 300 people, I started to speak, dried up, stood there for what felt like half an hour staring at the floor and then slowly walked back to my seat. Oh, and the girl I liked laughed.

Have you ever been utterly, completely, devastatingly out of your depth?

On my hols as a lad.
On my holidays as an eleven-year old boy I was staying at a spanish resort with my family where the local bar would play pirated tapes of the latest films like Terminator 2 and so-on.

There was a girl I liked and I invited her to come with me and watch said film and it didn't really matter to me that she was six years older than I. During the film Arnie was being chased down a large drainage ditch on a motorbike by the T-1000 in a sodding great lorry. As the lorry smashed into the side of the concrete ditch, I quipped "bad woman drivers."

She just left and didn't speak to me for the remainder of the holiday. I thought it was hilarious myself.
