Steep incline on treadmill = embarrassing moment at the gym

omg ... like a worst nightmare happening ... it happened to me!
First full day at the gym and I get on the treadmill for a cool down. I press cardio because it was the only familiar button. i enter weight and age and then i entered "2" for speed. The incline would auto adjust according to my speed.
up, up, up ... the treadmill inclined little by little to 10, 11, and then when i thought it would have to stop soon (or i might fall off backwards), it continued to incline to past 12. i realized i must look like a fool at such a ridiculous incline, so i tried to lower the incline.
i ended up accidentally adjusting the speed to a higher level ... and suddenly i was running and grabbing for the handles (still at this ridiculously high incline level). i finally found a "stop" button ... and then just laughed out loud at myself ... what the heck else was i going to do? i totally looked like a complete fool.
