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?

I grew up in a small, rough housing estate called Bonhill (near Loch Lomond, Scotland) which was teeming with chavs and junkies. One day a skinhead chav threatened asked me if I wanted 'plugged' with his shotgun (told you it was rough) I plainly replied "er...not really"
Little did he realise that my brother-in-law is one of the meanest and hardest man-bears in the area. Cue my big-bro knocking his door and yanking both him and his friend up with a firm had round each of their necks and explained that I was a nice guy who IS NOT to be harrassed. (I only discovered this after skinhead apologised profusely to me upon our next meeting)

Out of my depth? He wishes!!!


Tis all
