We all have one of those moments where we are so embarrassed that we prefer the ground opening up and swallowing us whole than have to continue living with the shame. The folks at College Humor compiled a list of the absolute most embarrassing things that could happen to anyone, anywhere, any time.
In no particular order, here are a few of the most embarrassing situations that you could ever experience:
Ripping your pants in public. The ultimate wardrobe malfunction. It’s the sound that makes you pause as your bending over. The sound of the rip, the give of fabric, and the tell-tell breeze that lets you know a hole has formed in your pants. No matter how small the rip, you feel that all the word can see your superhero underoos.
Wind blowing up a skirt. In the same vein as ripped pants is a lady’s worst nightmare. Wearing a loose flowing skirt on a windy day is just asking for trouble. No matter how glamorous Marilyn Monroe may have looked,
Catching yourself on fire. You may not realize it you’ve stumbled too close to an open flame until it’s too late, but the cloud smoke rising from your person has caught the attention of the entire room. If you’ve ever caught your hair on fire, you are stuck with a reminder of the incident until your hair grows back and the smell dissipates.
Having a visible booger you’re not aware of. There’s nothing worse than having someone tell you that you’ve got “a bat in the cave.” The nose is just a weird place on our face anyways, and having something waving in the wind and then someone pointing it out is awful.
Walking in on someone in the bathroom. What’s worse than being caught in an embarrassing situation is causing an embarrassing situation. Even though you may have knocked on the door before, walking in on someone doing their “business” is just unseeable and probably one of the best reason why time travel should be invented.
Mistaking a someone for being pregnant. It’s a rule that should be taught to everyone. Don’t ask any woman if she’s pregnant, no matter how obvious it seems. We know that different people carry their weight in different places, and sometimes it just looks like there is a “bun in the oven” when there really is no “bun.” Just be safe and don’t say anything until the expectant mother shares the happy news.
An overflowing toilet on your watch. No one likes to talk about toilets, and the worst thing that can happen is a malfunction while you’re using it. It doesn’t matter if you caused it or not, some of us would rather die than have to tell a friend that the toilet needs service.
Everyone has their embarrassing moments that will live forever in shame. Check out more of the most embarrassing things ever at College Humor.
