Mortified

What is the one story that always gets told about you as a child to people (guests, new bf/gf, anyone who didn't know you then)?

Mine:  When I was 4, I received a HUGE box for Christmas, my whole family sat around while I opened it.  I have never been so excited in my entire life.  I was 4, big box = GREAT gift!  I dug through crumpled newspaper after crumpled newspaper only to find.......a big lump of coal.  I looked up....and burst into tears.  I was hysterical.  I still believed in Santa!  I truly believed that I was getting no presents that year because I had been bad.  My mother says I cried for at least an hour and no other presents could console me.  They have pictures of this...progressive ones that show the stages of the prank.  My mom still hangs the coal on the tree in a little stocking.  I am now 23.  I still get a knot in my stomach every time I see that damn thing.


ETA:  This wasn't my parents idea.  It was some "play-cousins" who I now hate.  It's their ugly mugs in the background laughing it up.  My mother is to blame for the yearly reminder.
These stories are hilarious, PLEASE keep them coming.
