Top Ten Embarrassing Situations You Can Seem to Avoid

TehBoss
Ever had one of those utterly embarrassing moments when it seems that the odds are stacked up against you and Fate is conspiring to ruin your reputation? Well, if you haven't had that moment it will, without fail, occur at some point in your life. Examples of this predicament can stretch from a social encounter gone wrong to a full-blown moment of awkwardness that makes you want to roll on the floor, curl into a fetal position, and never get up.

Life is the cruelest mistress of them all. Here's ten reasons why.

The Top Ten

1 Entering the wrong class and not realizing it until someone tells you

You've got it all wrong. You simply look around and say, "What the hell are all you idiots doing in the wrong class? " Then exit, stage left, to rave reviews.

Okay, this situation is avoidable, and I'm not saying everybody will experience it. But for those who will...God help you. You'll need it. - TehBoss

2 Accidentally broadcasting your opinion to a large group of people

A large group of people means more opinions to be expressed. Back when the law was more carefree, large groups of people meant lynch mobs. You've probably noticed how the two are connected. - TehBoss

"Back when the law was more carefree..." (snorkel! ) You got style.

3 Calling the wrong number
4 Getting noticed hanging out with your parents

Unless your parents are cool or own a caddie or something other. - TehBoss

5 Accidentally talking about your ex around your significant other
6 Having a conversation with a friend and realizing you've been talking smack about the stuff they enjoy

Again, "Simply testing your level of dedication to your fascinating obsession." Walk away leaving them totally confused.

Unless they enjoy eating puppies; then, by all means, feel free. - TehBoss

7 Correcting someone's mistake only to be told that it wasn't a mistake

This situation is extremely painful when you're the victim, but I assume that it probably feels awesome when you can counter-correct the correction and be smug about it afterwards. - TehBoss

Again, all wrong. Simply come back with, "I was merely testing your confidence in your knowledge. Well done."

8 Telling an awesome joke with no laughter in response

Let's be fair here, it's happened to every last one of us. - PositronWildhawk

Try, "Ya know, they're doing great things with hearing loss these days."
Or, "So, how's that concussion coming along? "
