To tell or not to tell .. that is the question.

What would you tell a complete stranger to help them avoid an embarrassing situation?  What would you not tell them?
Sometimes when you think your trying to help someone out, they’re just plain rude and you wished that you hadn’t told them so later on you could laugh at them!
Anyways, one vacation when I had gone to visit my friend in LA, we had just finished shopping on 3rd street in Santa Monica, and we were heading to her car.  We stopped at a crossing, when this lady came and stood in front of us.  At first I did not notice, then at the same time my friend and I had noticed that her skirt was tucked into her under garnments, and everything was in clear view.
So being the “shy” one I nudged my friend and I’m like “TELL HER! MASKEENA HOW EMBARRASSING” My friend looks at me and was like, “I don’t wanna tell her! you tell her, I’m shy” So I think in my head “Yeah shy whatever, only when you want me to take the fall ;p (i was just kidding)”
So I tap the lady on her shoulder, and she looks at me kind of confused, I lean over really close to her (I bet I scared the heck out of her) and I told her, I’m like “Sorry, but I would just like you to know that your skirt is tucked in from the back.”
She thanked me, and tried to remove the skirt from where it was stuck.  Then my friend and I went on our way.
What would you haved one in that situation? Would you have told her? Or let her figure it out on her own?
Have you ever been in a situation like that?

    well in that case tell her lana i dnt think anyone would intentionally want that, but like with some girls here, when u see their hair poking out min ta7at their 7jab u assume they’d want to know but when my aunt did that that girl was a ***** and was like wintay shako! so in conclusion i think we should just pray not to be in situations like this where ur consciense tells u to help them out but ur mind says la dnt u’ll only get barked at!!

    it happened to my co-worker one time. She just came out of the toilet and got in an office full of male workers, her luck! Most of the guys just stared at her as though she were a slut … she even walked around the corridor not knowing about it until someone pointed out she had her skirt tucked up under itself showing a lot of stuff.

    I would not show my face at work for months …

    I think telling her is a kindness. Sometimes people get angry because they are embarrassed. We don’t have any control over that, but we can control what WE do and what we say, and you behaved as you would want others to behave, to spare her embarassment.
