Super Embarrassing Things You’ll Be Glad Didn’t Happen to You

Share on Facebook

You know when you’re trying to fall asleep and your brain randomly remembers all the most embarrassing things you’ve ever done in your entire life? It’s kind of the worst.

You may have gone years without remembering that time you totally blanked on someone’s name, or waved at a stranger on the street who was actually waving to someone behind you or fell flat on your face in front of a crowd of people. But your subconscious definitely did not forget. Right as you’re drifting off to sleep, it’ll remind you of the most cringe-worthy moments of your entire life. Good luck getting to sleep after that.

On the bright side, I bet most of your embarrassing moments probably weren’t caught on camera. That’s more than can be said for a lot of the people on this list. While other people’s embarrassment may make you cringe, you can at least rest assured that your discomfort is nowhere near as intense as their own.

Very few people actually enjoy going to the dentist, but if this ever happened to me, I am 100 percent sure I would never go to the dentist again for the rest of my life.

I like that this person was just trying to go along with this very odd situation…and ended up making it even more awkward. On the other hand, maybe the world could use more hugs!

This is actually a great way to respond to embarrassing situations. Just stand there and salute. What are people going to do? Laugh at a patriot? Not likely.  

I never realized people could become stuck like this, but it makes total sense. I guess I’ll just have to continue my life of avoiding skate parks.

Don’t worry. It’s not like you were on TV when you did this very embarrassing thing! Oh. Wait.

Even one second would be too long in this situation, but three seconds? That’s practically a lifetime of cheek touching.

To be fair, “gpa” has a meaning other than grandpa. I don’t think you should feel too bad about this.

I can’t stop imagining what this must have looked like. I also can’t stop laughing.

I will grant you that the checkout lines at Trader Joe’s are a little awkward, and the parking lots are always the worst. But I truly do not understand how you thought a cart full of groceries was filled with sale items. This one is on you, friend.

Needless to say, she wasn’t introduced to the parents right away.

This is embarrassing, sure, but it could have been way worse. At least you didn’t drop the food on the ground on your way out.

But…I mean… No lies detected.

Surely you could have spoken the words “Here is your pizza!” aloud, though? Something to make it less awkward!

Hey, you had no way of knowing! Still, this is how you get branded as being a “bad influence.”

There is so much to unpack here, but I am too afraid to unpack any of it. Let’s just move along, shall we?

OK, yes, this is very embarrassing and I would hate to have been in that situation. But major points to mom, here. She’s kind of my hero.

Yep. You’re never going to live this one down. Sorry.

You could have tried to explain, but I think we all know it would have just gotten more and more awkward. You know you can never go back to that store, right?

You owe your dad big time. Also, you clearly need to keep better track of your cousins. Do you not have a Facebook?

Hey, it could have been worse! Not much worse, though.

If you think this is bad, just wait until you get home and find that your dad has been chopping carrots on your laptop all day.

If you had managed to blow the kiss and drive away, this would have been a pretty smooth move. Crashing into the back of the taxi kind of ruined it, I’m sorry to say.

At least this mistake only cost $9.99. In case you’re looking for a silver lining to the situation.

Sometimes you do your best to make the world a better place. …Then the world says “No thanks.”

There are zero ways to recover this situation. Sorry. You are definitely not getting that job.

You have a few options, here. Option 1: Pretend you’ve been abducted by aliens. Option 2: Act surprised when you see the piano and exclaim, “THIS is a piano?! Oh my gosh, I learned to play a completely different instrument and have just been calling it a piano for years!” Option 3: Break all of your fingers immediately.

There is no way the photographer didn’t notice this. So yeah, I think they actually do hate you.

Well? You certainly don’t want them to have a bad baby, do you?

Teamwork makes the dream work!  

How do you explain to your mom what the phrase “bust a nut” means? Is there a way to do it that isn’t horrible? Asking for this person. Share this with someone who could use a laugh today!
