Get ready to wince
It’s impossible to get through life without collecting a few moments you wish you could take back. Whether through a lack of knowledge, an abundance of feelings or a dearth of grace, we’ve all fallen flat on our faces publicly be it metaphorically or literally.
Nothing makes you feel better about embarrassing moments from your past quicker than knowing everyone else has been just as humiliated at some point. So the fine folks at Reddit circled the wagons around their cringing cohorts and shared their most mortifying moments.
Check out a few of the best below.
I was either in first or second grade when this happened. Anyway our p.e. teacher was testing us by making us do sit ups. We were grouped in pairs and when it was my turn my partner was holding my ankles and foot. I did it but every time I did it I would fart and it wasn’t one of those silent farts. No it made sound but stupid me didn’t want to stop and neither did the farts. (quiet400)

When I was 15 I was trying to get a weekend job in a pet store, the owner asked me if I was flexible, my reply was “yes, of course, I’ve done yoga for years” It’s been 13 years and I still think about it, my brains way of embarrassing me at random moments ‘hey, remember that time you were a total idiot?!’ (trixy_treat)
