Egg On Your Face Competition Winners

As you may have noticed, there’s been some serious competition for the most embarrassing story over on our Facebook wall – truly, it’s been like walking through a gallery of humanity at its most unfortunate.

Someone has to win, however, and won someone has. So without much further ado (well, maybe a bit more ado…), we’re pleased to say that Alison Reid is our worthy winner. A pair of Walkie Talkie Watches will be winging their way towards her very swiftly indeed.

Here is her story, unedited to preserve the shocking embarrassment:

“i have a job interview in an hour, and its a 50 minute drive to get there (at least). so, the mad panic is well and truly setting in, get dressed, put on make up, no time for a shower so lets try damage control on the hair…not to bad thinks me, a passable effort at humanity looks back at me in the mirror. i get to th…e interview in time and not too frazzled, it goes well, i think i’m in with a good chance, i’m even getting the little tour of the office before i leave. i get back in the car feeling like i pulled of the save of the century., only to look down and realise that i not only have two different shoes on but i also have my knee length pyjama bottoms on under the skirt that i pulled in in my hurry that morning and they certainly dont emit the air of professionalism i was aiming for…i didnt get the job, and to this day i firmly believe that i was taken on the tour of the office so that everyone could see exactly how stupid i looked!”

Crikey.

The five runners up are Hel Cruse, John Hynes, Lee Perry, Julie Booth and Nikki Knox Parsons. Well done chaps, have a Food Face Plate each!

The IWOOT Egg On Your Face Competition

Easter is but a week away, Chocolate-lovers amongst you, so it’s time for us to bring you our Eggsellent (sorry) new Easter competition!

We’ve all had a moment where the Egg has been well and truly On Our Face, and we want to hear about it. If you fancy winning some super prizes from IWOOT, then all you have to do is submit an embarrassing story on our Facebook page (link) – the more embarrassing the better! We’ve got a pair of Walkie Talkie Watches for the overall winner and 5 runners up prizes of our new Food Face Plates. Make sure you tell us your embarassing story by 10AM on Thursday 1st April to be in with a chance.

To get you in the mood, we’ve had a quick ask around the office to see if anyone has any particularly choice stories to share… turns out they do. Enjoy:

Chris, Customer Services:

“I once, in my other life as a look-alike, was asked to go and audition for a pilot show at Endemol TV. When I got there I found out they didn’t care that I was a look-alike for David Tennant – they wanted me to pretend that I was a look a like for Peter Andre. They asked me to pretend to be him in the ‘Mysterious Girl’ video and do the dance that he did where he rubbed his abs… I did it and they filmed me.”

Kate, Marketing:

“When I was 14 I had a massive crush on Graeme Le Saux (which in itself is embarrassing enough!) I went to a charity event organized by my grandfather and to my excitement Graeme was there in real life! My grandfather took me over to meet him and proceeded to introduce me to my idol.

‘Hi Graeme, I would like you to meet my Granddaughter. I think she is in love with you or something.’

His wife looked less than pleased and I was desperately looking for a hole to crawl into.”

Has this been you at some point?

Phew. After all that embarrassment, you’ll probably want some Terms and Conditions, won’t you?
