A woman going by the pseudonym Contempt made quite a mistake back in high school! On her shift working as a waitress, she spotted a group of women. When she came up to greet the group by referring to them as ladies, she realized they were actually the band Aerosmith! She apologized and quickly left. Then she asked her friend to take the order because she was too embarrassed.

Eastwestkate was invited on stage during the performance of New Kids on the Block several years ago, and her brain just went blank. When she saw Jordan Knight, she yelled ‘Enchantee!’ and curtsied! The thing is that she never used this word before and is not even French. What an interesting reaction.
