Okay so today I was doing the laundry and just threw mine in carelessly, put detergent on and started it. Then 30min later my step mom walks in and asks “where is the load of laundry I put in.” I had unwittingly thrown mine in over hers. Oh no... I didn’t know what to say, an incredibly stupid mistake I realized I had made. After about 100 years of silence Feeling like a frozen statue I just laughed because I didn’t know what else to say/do. I had done something egregiously stupid. She did not think it was very funny, I didn’t either. I feel like my response was not appropriate, like I should apologize when doing something stupid but often end up freezing like a statue and laughing. I think this is because my extreme sensitivity to embarrassment. It really ends up causing me anxiety. Can anyone relate?
