“I hit face first into a street light lamp post because I was staring (while walking) at a beautiful girl walking towards the direction where I am coming from. It was in front of the main gate of our university. Hundreds of students saw it. My friends laughed hard as hell.”

One commenter eloquently responds with…”A tragedy up close but a comedy from afar.”

Airplane Surprise

“Was on an airplane years ago with my girlfriend and her parents. My girlfriend couldn’t get a seat next to me and sat directly behind me. During the flight, I thought I would surprise her and reached my hand back onto her knee. Slowly I kept extending it up her thigh until I heard giggling. Looked behind through the seats and saw that my hand was on the leg of the guy next to her. He saw my face and said, “I just wanted to see how far you’d go.” Of course, my girlfriend was in on it and started laughing along with the rest of the row. Was so embarrassed.”

Could have been worse…like it being her dad!

Elevator Mishap

“I once got into a lift and the boss (who was very fierce usually) got in behind me and started talking to another colleague. It started friendly with a How are you? Then quickly escalated to a paranoid rant about how my colleague was always ignoring him, would get fired, etc. I was so cowardly I didn’t turn around to support him against the boss’s bullying. Finally, the boss said, “Well [forget] you then” and got out of the lift the floor before mine. I turned round to offer sympathy as I’d only heard the boss leaving. There was no other colleague. He’d been talking to me.”

One commenter asked…”how do you even explain that afterward hahaha.”

The Loud Fart

“At a retreat, we all were sitting on a hard wood floor. Speaker: “Let us have a moment of silence to reflect upon God’s word in our hearts.” At that point, my stomach was bothering me. I knew the best thing to do was to let out a fart. I thought, well, this is just a little fart, if I let it out slowly, it will be silent. No one will be the wiser. So I let it go. The fart was extremely loud and was amplified by the wood floors and the silence of the room. It echoed and sounded as if my [bottom] had torn in half. Elicited chuckles and laughter afterward. I claimed it.”

Because it wouldn’t be a list of embarrassing moments without a fart story!

Watch This!

“I was at my friends birthday party in high school and was super drunk. Ran up to a group of people and said “Watch this! I then proceeded to run and dive into a bounce house only for the Velcro lined entrance to grab my sweats/boxers and pull them down to my ankles. I’ll never forget the looks of horror on their faces while I laid there on my back with my legs in the air showing off all my goodies :(“

A supporting commenter responded…”This isn’t an embarrassing moment, this is the birth of a legend. Hold your head high friend.”

Breakup To Breakdown

“Near the end of Freshman year, of college, my first ever bf dumped me. I was devastated but I played it really cool and acted like it was fine. We were laughing and joking as he left. Soon as the door closed behind him I burst into tears. Not 5 minutes later he’s knocking on my door because he left his book bag behind. That was some mortifying [stuff].”

One commenter totally related…”I’m cringing from the secondhand embarrassment alone.”

Unfortunate Karaoke Choice

“I once tried to do karaoke to a Taiwanese nationalist song at a Chinese international student event and realized halfway through the song that the song was nationalist. I left the room halfway though the song. Part of the problem is I didn’t know the language I attempted to sing in, and it’s easy as a 19 year old to forget that songs can have meanings that would offend people. The only way I realized it was when I saw the Taiwanese flag and saw the confused faces of the Chinese students.”

This is why I will never sing in front of people!

Swimwear Surprise

“I had a great day at a waterpark / outdoor pool, and towards the afternoon, a woman came up to me and whispered in my ear that I have a problem with my swimsuit. I reached behind and noticed a huge gap. The fabric was torn right in the middle and you could see my [backside]. I was running around like this all day and no one said anything.”

One of my first jobs was as a lifeguard. This type of thing happened every week.

Funeral Laughter

“So I have this issue when I’m stressed scared or sad I laugh, so I once laughed at a funeral I felt so bad and I literally wanted to bury myself 6 feet under.”

The first comment asked a valid question…”Was it the kind of laugh when you try but you just can’t stop?”

To which the original poster explained: “Yeah exactly I remember my neck veins were hurting me cuz I was trying to hold my laugh so bad lol”

Seagull Strike
