Embarrassing moments with only yourself to blame

It hurts when I laugh, but that is hilarious, Giuvito!

‘‘The psychologically impaired mutant known only as Krieg stood over the corpses of bandits that he had killed. Liar’s Berg was safe for the time being. After meeting with the scholar Hammerlock, Krieg went on a mission to wipe out a herd of Bullymongs in the town’s graveyard. He fought valiantly, but unfortunately, one of the beasts managed to cripple him with a thrown icicle. But there was still hope, Krieg only needed to kill one of them to get his confidence back up and escape his crippled state. He tried lunging at a nearby Bullymong, but failed, for he was constantly hitting himself in the face with a buzzsaw. And so, he bled out, for he could not differentiate himself from the enemy.’’

That’s just a fancy way of saying that I died because Silence the Voices literally procced five times in a row while in FFYL. Should have used a rocket launcher instead.

Ouch, sorry @Handsome_Dad.

Hope you’re feeling better. Laughter heals everything though.

Tried the Creature Slaughter today to get a new Creamer. Can’t remember which round it was, but an Ultimate Badass Varkid spawned. The Varkid was almost dead, then I hear that sound that the Varkids make when they start to morph. Too late, by the time I realised it was going to morph into Vermi, I had already killed it. I would have gotten Vermivorous to spawn at 1-player difficulty if I wasn’t so trigger-happy. I had never gotten her to spawn even at 4-player difficulty. I had the perfect gear and I was playing as Salvador. There weren’t even any enemies around. I wish Vermi was like the other raids, cough up a little Eridium and fight, but NO.

Moral of the story: don’t spam the trigger.

Not really “embarrasing” but more like a fail episode which keeps occuring.When having to reload a rocket laucher to get a second wind and the thing I have is the frickin Bandit one which reloads forever.

I actually managed to reload in time today, which was weird. Oh right, I didn’t, I switched to another weapon. I guess that means that I’ve finally learned my lesson.

so im at the story part where you have to damage 3 loaders to get the gate open on UVHM, i “back” walk off the cliff around the same spot trying to deal with level 70 plus loaders and such, not once, not twice, not even 3 times, i walk backwards off the f’n cliff 4 times, i really hated my life right then, lol

Welp, now I can join the club. Where’s my hat they give to new members? :P.

Now this moment I have I only have myself to blame but I died…to the beginning bullymongs. I just wasn’t watching health and they knocked me down, alright simple enough it’s embarrassing they knocked me down but I’ll just kill them to stand up again.

Nope. They were being ■■■■■■■■ lol and as soon as they knocked me down they just backed away from me until I died. (so not only did they knock me down, they killed me aswell.) uggggggh it’s gonna be one of THOSE playthroughs isn’t it. That ran through my head as I was respawning back to Claptrap’s place.

That moment will always haunt me, that I died to the easiest and first enemies in the game.

Killed myself …again…with a StormFront…again.
You’d think I would know better, but alas…the obsidian chunk that
serves as my grey matter seems impenetrable to that which some folks
call “learning stuff”.

Which goes to show, no matter how awesome you think you are…you probably aren’t.

That…and I think I swallowed a contact lens today.
Don’t worry though…it wasn’t mine. :wink:

Old story – somebody dropped me a Sawbar, and I nearly made an epic read fail. I thought somebody gave me a hacked Sawbar because the only thing I read off it clearly was 1</font color>. If not for a second look at it while selling other stuff a short bit later, I’d have abandoned an OP1 Sawbar</font color>.

Lesson learned: Fully process/understand what you’re about to sell.</font color>

Got a new one for ya – Krieg (with a blue Flesh Crunch mod) throwing a Homing Bonus Package (0.0 fuse time) in Frostburn Canyon. Blazing Spiderant burrows underground just before I throw it, so it wanders aimlessly. I enter the caves from the other entrance nearest the Lascaux so that I can do exactly that – only to see the Homing BP heading straight for me…

Can’t explain how often I’ve thrown a homing something, to have the creature I’m aiming for die by one of my comrades, and I’m sitting there in a corner, anxiously listening to the beeping sound around me.

[/quote]~sigh~ I gotta go get myself a Sticky Homing BP. Also, I think I gotta shift those Embrace the Pain points into Empty the Rage, even if I’m not using it.

I feel as though this counts.

Playing Digistruct with the Missus and friends. We’re at (Binary). Trying to tell them to concentrate on his critical spot.

Start screaming; “HIT HIM IN THE D—”. Elderly couple walking by our home (who walks their Lab on a daily basis) is staring in to the house with their jaw open. I must’ve said it like 10 times. They have no idea what the context was.

I doubt they were out there like;

“He must’ve been trying to get some massive damage.”

Doubt I’m going to be invited to any of their upcoming events.

The two of us just moved there too.

You can type out dick here :P.

Whaaat? Nooo.

Dick is allowed? I would’ve been saying it all along.

New Embarrassing Moment;

I was on my BL forum, telling everyone about an embarrassing moment, and I began self-censoring, like a dick.

For awhile it was censored, then someone made the argument that Dick could be used in the context of someone’s name. Now it’s uncensored :P.

Ahh, but that is just a measure of the word out of context. Watch us get in trouble cause of the context.

@Kitty_Jo shooting us down would bring this story full circle towards ‘embarrassing moments with only myself to blame’ for me.
