At some time or another, it happens to all of us.  We say something or do something that places us in an embarrassing situation.

Studies show that people react differently to embarrassing situations.

33 percent apologize immediately for whatever caused the embarrassing situation.

22 percent make jokes to cover it up or laugh it off.  

Slightly fewer, 21 percent simply pretend nothing happened.  

18 percent blush until the embarrassing moment passes and 6 percent simply leave.
