Shame-attacking exercises, anyone?

For those of you who have read "When Panic Attacks" by David Burns, you should know what I'm talking about.

Let me share mine:

I spoke light-heartedly and jokingly to a storekeeper (seems mild, but was a big one for me!)
My biggest feat yet was singing in a public bathroom. It wasn't till after that that I realized nobody gave a damn about me. I then remembered that people sang in that bathroom all the time.

Any of you daring to admit your shame-attacking exercises?

I've heard of this one. Put a banana on a lease and take it for a walk, no one will even look, apparently.

In the darkest hour the soul is replenished and given strength to continue and endure.
