Most Embarrassing Things That Can Happen to You In Class at School


The Top Ten

1 Farting by accident

I remember doing it once in front of my class on the first day at a new school, it was kinda embarrassing, and since no one knew me yet it was probably more

Once, I was at school in complete silence and that was when...oh no...I had to fart so bad! I had to think of a plan, I couldn't let my popularity and reputation crumble before me, then...PING! I had a plan. I would scrape my chair while doing it because the chair makes a whole lot more noise then a fart, its true! So I tried that and you can hear a slight bit of the fart. everyone looked at me, so I tried to do the sound again to cover up the suspicion...but this time it didn't make the people think I'm an idiot..NOO! And now I'm a loser without a reputation and being humiliated at scold all the time. - Coreforce

I've never done that before, but once someone did a silent but deadly fart in sewing class, and a boy sitting in a table next to be asked me if I did it, and I said no, and he was just like "You look pretty guilty! ", and everyone believed him. I was the scapegoat of the week, so looking back, I wasn't surprised that they blamed ME. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

There is this guy who came at my friend's birthday party and he spread a false rumour that I farted. And now 90% people of my grade hate me. - TriggerTrashKid

3 Soiling your pants

I once did a pee in the middle of my year six assembly sadly it was Pretty obvious every one stared and laughed at me! also in year five on our week long school trip on off my friends( who I was sharing a dorm with) thought it would be fun to pretend were in nursery and play mama and daddy I was the baby and they put me in a nappy even worse when the dorm next door looked through the window and saw they told every one!

This girl in my class did this. She peed her pants in class. I told my friends about what happened. She was being nosy and she heard me. She snitched on me, not confronting me herself. I got in trouble. - CartoonCriticizer

Haha, that is funny. - TriggerTrashKid

Yea, but it's not poop but blood from the top of my backside. Pretty sure it's a scab that hardly heals right due to the clothes rubbing it around.

I don't wear pants in school (we have uniforms). But this does often happen to me when I wear pants or shorts outside the school. - Misfire

One reason to be glad my school has uniforms... I won't walk around with an open zipper - sum_fudge

I was in 3rd grade and I didn't like wearing underwears. One day, I left my zipper open, thankfully, my friend told me before I could have been embarrassed. - TriggerTrashKid

I kept my pants zipped up no matter what, but for some stupid reason, it unzips itself... - Gehenna

8 Puking in front of the hole class

One time in 2nd grade I was sick and throwing up at school. So I felt nauseous when we were busy in small groups. So I told the teacher I have to throw up, and she said run to the bathroom. So I ran as fast as I could down the hallway to the girls bathroom. I was right in front of the door when I threw up on my sweater. I went in to the stall and went on my knees and began to retch. The vomit was green and oily. I came back a few minutes later and the teacher asked if I was okay, I said I was okay. So then we had spanish class and I had a terrible headache and I felt queasy. Then I burped and felt vomit swish up my throat, but it went back down. At lunch, I ate nothing and put my head down. We came back from lunch and had fruit and vegetables. I ate two green beans and then felt very nauseous. I told the teacher I have to vomit again. She said stand over the trash can. So I grab the trash bin and start gagging and throwing up like crazy in front of the whole class and I had fell down ...more

This happened to me too many times. But one time I remember very vividly was when I was around eight or nine. So I went to school in Ireland and in Irish primary schools it was a requirement to learn the recorder (basically a more annoying version of the tin whistle). Now at the time, for medical reasons, I had very poor motor skills and my finger coordination wasn't the best so my teacher used to like hate me for that and one day, I was in school and my family had the stomach bug. I got my notes on the recorder wrong and while the teacher was shouting at, I full on projectile vomited in her face. Safe to say she didn't even speak to me or tell me off ever again afterwards! - tinytootsierolls

That happened to me in elementary school once (I'm in high school now). The day after I came home from a weekend trip to my aunt's beach house, I went to school, but I was feeling sort of nauseous. After I put my backpack away in my cubby, I felt it coming and puked right on the floor in my classroom! And everyone was staring at me! My teacher had to get me to the nurse's office, called home, my mom picked me up, and that was it. That was so embarrassing! - Stazemar000

This happened to me once, when I came to school sick, I was puking in the garbage in the back of my class while they were singing oh canada and starting the day - trains45

9 Being caught kissing/flirting someone

I would never do that, no one likes me, even though I am attractive. - TriggerTrashKid

I would never do that in the first place, but that would be extremely embarrassing!

I was caught with my friend Osman while practicing homosexuality in Sudan but soon I realized that many of my mates do the same. Alhamdolillah

10 Someone pulls your underwear

That's called a wedgie

yes same

If someone does that I'll make sure they regret their existence. - XxembermasterxX

I was about 17 and I went to a boarding school. My friend,who happened to be a girl, got annoyed at me. This happened late at night. She and her other friends got hold of me and tied me to a tree in the courtyard so that I couldn't move. It was generally embarrassing to be on the tree and tied up but then she yanked my trousers down. Her friend then suggested that they took my clothes and put them back in my dorm. They did that and I was left there all night stuck to the tree. I got detention in the morning.

14 Entering the wrong class

There were two home economics teachers and my class for home economics was divided in two so there would be like home economics class 1 and 2 if that makes sense.

One of my teachers called a kid to do a hard division problem and the kid was bad at math. The kid said the answer that he thought was right and he got it completely wrong. - Videogamesgal

But the thing is most of the teachers know you don't know how to do it so they call you up there to look like a fool - BreakFastBeast2005

So me in Geography. - Luckys

17 Being caught picking your nose

This was a problem for me until my final year of school. For my birthday, I got my nose pierced and it was ok to wear it to school as long as it was a stud and not a ring or hoop. I had to pick my nose one time and nobody even flinched because they thought I was just adjusting my piercing! - tinytootsierolls

Don't look at anyone. I'm a guy and I can get an erection just from sitting in a position. When I'm called up and my ding dong springs up, just gotta think of emptiness

It happened to this Kid in my class before and he really likes me and all the boys noticed and the first thing they said was " Daniel has a boner over Cora" I felt so bad for him

I'm a girl and I am thankful I don't need to deal with that kind of nonsense. - XxembermasterxX

27 Falling asleep, and waking up when another class starts.

A classmate of mine once slept during class. When the teacher was done discussing, she and the class (including me) went out of the classroom quietly, turned off the lights, and a classmate told the sleeping student that school's over. It wasn't actually over. All of it was a prank. Lol - Misfire

That would be bad.

34 Your crush sees your underwear because you're in a skirt

Well not happened to me I was staring at my crush I was gonna get my pencil and then I saw my crushes underwear

I accidentally seen my crushes underwear, not on purpose. Long story short, I was going to grab something from my bag and she was in a tree above me. She called down to me, and I instinctively looked up. Yeah, awkward. She was alright about it though, and actually found it funny

My friends told me my crush saw "it" once, but then they said they were lying, if this happens to you tell you're crush "Well I saw you're underwear too" that's the best thing to do

More like a kilt for me, wait no they would see something different.

35 Lying about bringing your homework

I used to forge notes making excuses. Nothing serious just stuff like "she was sick" or "we were away and weren't at home" and stuff like that. In my old school, you'd still get detentions for forgetting stuff - tinytootsierolls

Whenever I don't do my homework (so like every day), I just say I left it at home. - sadical

So horrible - ihatetrump

My teacher got sooo pissed because my friend started telling a story about how her brother rewrite the whole task. She was dumb enough to do that homework and actually bring it in. Like, COME ON! Who brings in Math homework into drama 😂

Who the heck would do this!?

Someone in my school wears an Elmo shirt. In 6th grade. - TeamRocket747

Yeah, I wear mature Disney shirts once a week and then I wear normal clothes because I am mature

When I was in 3rd or 4th grade I wore this Asian toddler-looking vest to school. It was red and it had a picture of 2 bears in a boat on it. I even wore a sweater that I had since I was a 2 year old to KINDERGARTEN.

39 The teacher makes you hug each other

This would always happen when we went on class retreats - tinytootsierolls

This isn't hugging, but it relates to it; my music teacher makes us hold hands sometimes during our classes for certain activities that require it. I don't mean to be rude to people, but I always pull down my sleeves past my hands. One time she made us dance with boys in this sort of dance where girls stand in the inside of a circle of boys who rotate between each girl and do a hand-clapping, hand-holding dance. I got paired with this boy who I at the time disliked greatly and afterwards my crush said that I looked "over-the-moon to be paired with him".

I thought they liked us to not get romantic in a lesson!

Well it was my future girlfriend

40 Get in trouble for no reason

I once got in trouble for cutting my knee. I kid you not. I was out on the playground and I fell and the only thing the teacher could worry about was the fact that I had ripped my tights open and it was "dirty looking". I wouldn't only she didn't even send me home or give me a spare pair from the lost and found - tinytootsierolls

Troublemaker - Userguy44

Once I got in trouble for holding the door open after school, I was holding the door open one winter day, it wasn't cold out, but it was snowing, I was holding the door open to be nice, and when I was waiting to close it but was waiting for a big crowd to end, the teacher says close the door, I wasn't ready until the crowd ends, she got mad and said, don't hold the door open! Your letting the heat out, it be different if it was freezing cold, it was probably like -1°C and lots of people were opening it as well, it be different if I held it open in -30°C weather, the teacher made me so mad that day - trains45

I got kicked out of class for talking and fiddling with my hands. Except...everyone else was doing the same thing and I am a good student so...why me? It was so embarrassing be because she yelled so loud and I sit in the very back corner so I had to walk through the starring eyes and the dead silence. I hope that Spanish teacher gets fired.

43 Getting caught playing the charlie charlie challenge and then your teacher gets mad at you

People always did that in 4th grade.

In elementary we played this and a girl pissed herself because she was so scared. Good times.
