The Most Embarrassing Moments You Could Ever Experience
The Most Embarrassing Moments
Each one of us has those moments where we're so embarrassed that we wished really hard for the ground to swallow us up so that we wouldn't need to live a life full of shame. Here are some of the most embarrassing situations that probably happened to most of us, especially to those who are “oblivious” to their surroundings. Read on!
Embarrassing Moment #1: Catching Yourself on Fire
This may sound weird and quite absurd, but a lot of people have the tendency of stumbling to an open flame without realizing until it's too late. If you've ever caught yourself on fire, don't panic and just keep on rolling on the ground. If you're lucky enough, someone might help you out by splashing you with a bucket of water. Who knows, a fireman might even help you-- if there's on in the neighborhood.
Embarrassing Moment #2: Clogging a Friend's Toilet
Whether or not the problem was caused by overusing the toilet paper or not enough water pressure, if you need to ask a friend where the plunger is, you might as well spend the rest of the day holding a sign that your body excretes so much waste.
Embarrassing Moment #3: Realizing You Don't Have Enough Money
It doesn't matter how many times you're going to say, “Oh my gosh this is so embarrassing.” Don't expect the cashier to give you a pack of gum for 0.59 cents instead of 0.80, and no one else is going to save you. Just get out of the line or use your debit card-- that's if you have one.
Embarrassing Moment #4: Waving to Someone Who's Not Actually Waving at You!
How many times did this happen to you? You thought that someone is waving at you, but it turns out that he's waving the person behind you? Whenever this happens, just pretend you're shooing a fly away, or fixing your hair. Anything that will help you cover-up the fact that you thought he's waving at you.
Embarrassing Moment #5: Getting Locked Out-of-the-box
Not surprisingly, a lot of people have locked themselves out. In fact, more than 48% of millennials (ages 19-35) have locked themselves out of their room or apartments at some point in their lives. The most common reason for this? Apparently, these teenagers and young adults are more worried about responding to a text as they walk out the door, forgetting to check if they already have their keys with them.
If you're one of those who often experience locking himself out, here's what you ought to do. If you live with a roommate, you can try calling them to see if they're nearby and they can let you in. However, if you live alone, there's no other choice but to call your landlord. You shouldn't be embarrassed about this because it happens to all, and it's part of their job.
Although, the best way to avoid this situation from happening again is by going to the locksmith and making a copy of your key. Give it to someone who lives nearby or to a person you fully trust. Next time you accidentally lock yourself again, you'll have a backup.
