What’s your most embarrassing moment from school?

I raised my hand one day in operations class and added what I thought was a great point to the discussion. After a long pause, the prof, addressing the whole class, said “Imagine for a moment a bicycle traveling at 40 km/h and a stick being inserted into one of its wheels. This is just what Mr. Lellouch appears to have done to our discussion.” When the embarrassment wore off, I realized I’d been daydreaming and the conversation had moved on way past where I thought it was. I paid much closer attention after that.

What is your Achilles Heel? Your biggest weakness?
