We had it displayed in an upstairs storage room for awhile. When I left my husband, the cast was left with him, and then when he moved out he forgot it in the attic. Somewhere somebody has a cast of my boobs and belly.

And someday, somewhere, you'll be walking down the street and a stranger will gaze intently at your chest and give you a beaming smile of recognition as he goes past. orngbiggrin.gif

One time I shaved my bikini area and forgot to make sure all the hair got rinsed down the drain.  The person who found it never said anything to me, but sheesh that's embarrassing!  I know for a fact it looked like a carpet in there!

Mine are just sitting on my dresser (all three!). My bedroom is the usual entrypoint for our house but nobody has said anything, if they even notice. lol.gif Our neighbor is a priest but he goes to the front door. wink1.gif

My housemate's daughter was playing with my son in my bedroom, when i noticed my waterproof duckie vibrator IN HER HAND!  i sorta had left it sitting on the windowsill after i cleaned it...... woops.

 

I kinda just said, "hey, that's MY toy!" and took it back, but she was all, "Hey wait! let me tell you something about that duck! It vibrates!"

 

i had a good laugh with her mom about it... but it could have been really bad if it was someone else's kid.

Ok, this is only sorta related, but I seldom get to share this story. I was taking over a project from this guy at work, and I made an appointment to talk to him about it. I walk in and RIGHT inside the door, on TOP of his filing cabinet at perfect eye level, was a pair of tighty-whities! At WORK! Where anybody even walking by his office would see! I tried to ignore it, but seeing as there was no reasonable explanation for why a guy would have a pair of underwear in plain sight at the OFFICE when he knew his female coworker was coming over... well, I consider myself pretty laid-back and relatively difficult to shake up, but I was completely nonplussed by this one. Weird.

Mine was recent.  We were refinancing our house and we had to do the appraisal.  I did not know they took pictures of the house.  I figured they walked through with a little checklist. 

 

Well, i just had a baby and was recovering from a c/s and also have a 2 year old and 6 year old.  I did the minimal cleaning and figured she would get it - i just had a baby.  Yeah.  So, i had been reorganizing the bathroom closet that morning and had left a few things out. 

 

One of those things was a ginormous box of Magnum condoms.  they were on a perfectly clean counter and so so obvious.  So, not only did she see them but they were in the pictures.  Luckily i remembered as she came down the stairs with a red face and smirk so i moved them before my dad came to work on hooking up the heater.

Yeah, we got snagged by a re-fi inspection with pictures of DH's underwear in the bedroom. I figured, hey, he's the one bothered by these sorts of things; he's the one meeting the inspector; he's responsible enough to pick up his underwear. Apparently not.

Thank you all for the ability to laugh myself silly and shriek! I'd had a stressful week and needed to laugh until I cried. Well, this thread did it! :)

Mine isn't a "cleaning miss", but a funny story anyway.  I needed a crochet hook to fix a snag in a sweater and MIL said she had one in her knitting bag.  She got the bag out from the back of a closet as she hasn't been knitting in quite a while.  She handed me the bag and then left the house to go somewhere.  I looked through the bag-no crochet hook, but a pretty explicit sex book!

I'm sure she hid it there years ago and forgot about it when she stopped knitting.

I keep mine prominently displayed in our living room, I like to think it keeps my father-in-law from visiting too often.

 

The last time my step-dad was here my hubby and him were on the comp together (they're both geeks) when my step-dad pulled up a Chrome browser window that shows the top 10 sites visited, and yeah youporn.com was one of the first displayed...hubby said they both acted like nothing happened then the history was erased the first chance he got.

My actual story involves me being the guest, not the other way around. My mom and I were staying at my mom's BFF's house for an extended time when the BFF was having medical problems. I was a teen. And I had my period, and was putting my used pads, wrapped up of course, in the bathroom trash. I didn't expect their dog to come and shred it, but she did. UGH. It was everywhere, it was bloody, it was absolutely disgusting and I was mortified. It took me a good while to clean up too.

 

It's amazing what people (cough, me) will share under the so-called anonomity of the Internet.

 Right after DH and I started dating, way back in 2002, we spent an entire weekend locked in his room. He got arrested right after that, and his mom came into his bedroom to try and find his paycheck so she could cash it and bail him out. She found about 12 used condoms next to the bed. Yep...it is amazing what kind of gross things we did at 18! The experince was complete with my halloween red fishnets hanging from the light fixture (I still wonder why she doesnt like me....).

 

On a more recent note, while my parents were at my house after DD was born, they found mouse poo in my pantry. That was embarrassing, especially since I had tried so hard to clean for my entire 3rd trimester! Also, there was once some reason for my father to need to move my sofa when he was over. I had cleaned really well before they came over, but of course, under the sofa lay 2 beer cans, a pacifier that had been 1/2 chewed by the dog, and (yea!) my drivers lisence that I had been driving without for about 2 months.

We had people over for dinner once and I had cleaned the downstairs very well but not the upstairs at all. I didn't expect dh would take everyone all the way through the house to the attic. The big contrast between the main floor and the parts of the house that I didn't expect people to see was embarrassing.

When I was 7 months pregnant with DS, we moved to a new apartment. A couple of co-workers of DH helped us. When DH and they were lifting the mattresses off the frame, they found our stash of um...toys that I forgot were under the bed. DH quickly picked them and threw them into a box.

I had DS paint his/my belly cast when he was 5, which we thought was pretty neat. It now sits on a shelf in my closet.

Yeah, dh thought it was HILARIOUS!  He said she probably thought i was too busy having lots of s*x with a well endowed man to bother cleaning.  HE of course was not embarrassed in the least.

I used to work as a loan processor for a mortgage broker.  The appraiser may or may not have noticed.  Our's once went and did the appraisal and when we got it, there were naked pictures of them on Harleys prominently displayed on a dresser.  We had to get new photos.  She hadn't noticed.  It was hilarious.

DH's mother found his ginormous box of Magnum condoms while helping him move. Embarrassing on so many levels.

 

When my brother was 16 he bought a car. He had been driving it around for a bit, showing it off to his girlfriend, but it needed some work done. The neighbors were out in the driveway admiring his cool new car while my dad was trying to find the book for the car under the seat since he couldn't find it in the glove compartment. He pulled out a bottle of spermacide, looked at it, and tossed it aside not knowing what it was. Everybody else nearby knew what my dad had just found and were laughing hysterically while my brother stood there red faced. And that's how we found out my brother had lost his virginity.

It took me a minute to figure out you didn't mean a Lego:)
