As a mom, I’ve had too many to count. But for every fail, I’m thankful for the comedic content it brings me — after all, best to laugh it off (of course, after crying and screaming and having snot coming down your face). However, one of my most epic fails happened on my wedding day in 2005.
I didn’t have bridesmaids, it was just my husband-to-be and me, but of course my girlfriends were there to help me out and make sure I was weddinglicious!
I clearly remember my friend Pam putting the flowers in my hands and wrapping a tissue around the stems because my hands would get sweaty. She was a total pro and helped keep me calm. She said to me, “you look beautiful” and assured me I was good to go.
As I linked arms with my father, we began walking down the aisle and were greeted with smiling faces of family and friends. I could feel my face twitch with nervousness as I fought back tears. Just as we are nearing the altar I suddenly went COLD. Then panic set in. My hands started shaking and I wanted to run out of there.
“No, no, no. It can’t be” I said.
But each step I took further confirmed it — HOLY MOTHER OF GOD I was still wearing my old, very worn, mustard yellow cotton undies that I had been in all day.
I had forgot to put on my SEXY undies… I was in complete disbelief and I couldn’t say or do anything. All the while I was saying my vows all I could think about was my yellow undies that I had mistakenly kept on instead of my cute little number from Victoria’s Secret I had purchased.
Moral of the story: epic fails happen anytime, anywhere. The worst on the ones on the road. It may not be a case of yellow undies — but a dead battery, flat tire or being locked out that will have you hash tagging #epicfail on your Facebook status.

For starters, there are NO membership fees. Yep!
No policy required, you get 24/7 help on demand and you pay-per-use for roadside assistance services for things such as flat tires, dead battery and lockout to name a few (sorry, they can’t deliver snacks for screaming kids, I asked!)
