You shouldn't feel embarassed!

Your belief as to what was going on was based on his own actions. It's reasonable to expect people to behave as they did in the past. I'm certainly glad he remembered and adjusted. But it doesn't always happen, and it usually takes a while for my therapist's self corrections to sink in.

I really couldn't say what my therapist is *thinking* when I more or less tell him I won't be budged before time is up. I suspect he's amused. But he also acknowledges that it isn't time by stopping the closing ceremonies and going back to a listening stance.

It's not so bad to be assertive, even with your therapist. Especially with your therapist. And it's more than possible to do it far more politely than I do it. ;)
