I think rdwj is spot on. If you take this to the extreme you'll discover that a few people are so scared ****less when they sky dive that they actually FORGET to pull their ripcords and fall to their death. Of course any of us in our right minds laugh at such a ridiculous scenario. Come on, how simple is that? But when the mind is in such a stressful state it doesn't think logically.

I know this to be true from my handgun self defense courses as well. I have never personally been in a life-or-death situation, but the teacher of one course relayed his first time in such a situation. He said he flopped on the floor and wailed like a little baby even though he had a gun in the holster on his hip and could've easily taken out the robber in the convenience store.

Of course being asked this question isn't life-or-death; I realize I am talking about extreme examples. But I would venture to say that the fear of embarrassment that she experienced could have produced a similar state of mind.
