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?

Virign Radio c. 1992
I was about 12, and really faniced this girl in my class. I went so far as to write her anonymous poems.
Anyhoo, Nick Abbott was doing his phone-in show on Virgin Radio, and silly me phoned up to talk about my infatuation with this girl.

Nick proceeded to take the complete piss out of me and I clammed up, pretended that I had got cut off I shut up and just listened as Nick said to me "I know you're still there, I can hear you breathing".

I promptly hung up. Next day practically the whole school (including the girl I liked) had listened to me and my life was hell.

I have never phoned another radio show, and never will.
