Top Ten Embarrassing Things That Can Happen While Swimming In a Public Swimming Pool


The Top Ten

1 You lose your underwear

I saw that happen to someone in a wave pool. I was grossed out, but at the same time embarrassed for them.

The most common is the most embarrassing - Antonio89

Once I lose mu underwear in a pool and I have to stand up in front of everyone naked.

I like making comics about myself, this will be fun...

Coreforce, the little devil in...SWIMMING SHAME

*begins in house, mom complains about getting exercise and going swimming. Coreforce however, does not agree with her complaints*


Me: for the last time, we are NOT SWIMMING! Every time I get in the water I have wrinkles in my hands and the-


Me: Gotta catch me first! Teehee.

*Mom proceeds to chase Coreforce around the house, but then as things seemed to be going well for our little devil...*

Me: *trips on power cord* AGH! OH NO!

Mom: *grabs me by the shirt* finally! I WIN! Now get to the car.

Me: grr...

*after a 20 min drive to the swimming centre, mom and Coreforce finally get changed and go inside*

Mom: it will be fun, you'll see!

Me:*in head* well, you think I'm going in ...more - Coreforce

2 You accidentally pull down someone else's underwear while doing a butterfly stroke

This I can only imagine. I would not like to see that person's face, let alone what I just revealed. - PositronWildhawk

You will need a very powerful butterfly stroke for this to happen. - Kiteretsunu

Excuses, excuses.

Okay this seems sketchy - Antonio89

3 You accidentally go #2 in the pool

Last year, some kid pooped on the pool, and everyone kept on pointing at it. Nobody knows who did it, and I frankly do not wish to know. - DogsUnleashed

That would be far more humiliating than loosing your underwear.

Just like the episode from American Dad where Stan accidentally poops in the pool and he becomes the laughing stock of Langly Falls. - egnomac

Two words, "American Dad" - Gehenna

4 You get caught peeing in the pool

I went to a pool once and this hasn't happened because there was a strict rule that states that the pool is NOT a toilet - Antonio89

A dirty act many people have done to the public swimming pools. Shame on them! - Kiteretsunu

Like in South Park, but that wasn't an accident

Reminds Me Of That South Park Episode

5 You see someone (of the opposite sex) swimming while naked

I've seen this! Well, he wasn't naked, but he was wearing see-through trunks! - Britgirl

That would be so hot!

I thought nudity was illegal in pools - Antonio89

that's hot

6 Your pet comes out of nowhere and jumps into the pool

That will be so funny.

NOT embarrassing I be like, lol this is my pet and he likes me this much.

Just in case... maybe... - Kiteretsunu


7 Your period starts

Can the blood flow into the water?

This would be sooo awkward - Sjinkiie

Especially unexpected without a crammit!


Even worse when there’s a shark in the water! Sharks can smell blood and therefore you will be an easy target!

8 You see someone seeing porn through a waterproof smartphone

What's wrong with pool porn - peppypeter

At least they aren't catching you.

Who does that

9 You see your school's principal there

Or your sport teacher, who happens to suck at swimming.

What's wrong with that? - Antonio89

I would push her in pool then, as she doesn't know how to swim😝 - Ananya

10 You meet your ex in the middle of the pool

Add naked to that

The Newcomers

? You try to use the diving board and fail miserably

The Contenders

11 You see five to six freely floating underwear (both of ladies and men) inside the water

As long as it is not your own, you won't be to blame. Unless it came up from underneath you. - PositronWildhawk

You can predict what must have been going on there at the pool. - Kiteretsunu

I'm not even going in a pool with underwear in it - Antonio89

Time to leave.

12 You're caught throwing up in public

My brother was swimming and this little girl threw up in the pool. They evacuated the pool and took two hours to clean it out. - DismissedEye

13 You get caught bringing uranium with you into the water

To do a public experiment of course - Kiteretsunu

You know, everyone has uranium just lying around. It's a common household item. - DismissedEye

No, you won't get caught cause you won't last until then! - Animefan12

14 You fart

This won't be a big deal. Nobody will notice it because the chlorine blocks the smell and nobody will hear the sound

That will happen. Don't go near the person that farted - Antonio89

As long as no one sees. The bubbles you would be fine

15 Your trunks come off

Lol, my brothers trunks came off while he was swimmingLol it was hularyice

16 Going swimming on your period and you leak in the pool

That's why you wear tampons whenever you go swimming. Problem solved. - Pegasister12

This is why I NEVER swim during my period

17 Diarrhea

This one dude... this one dude I used to know, he ate nothing but apple juice and spinach for a week. he exploded a ass blast into the pool not thinking anything bad would happen, then it hit him, or everyone around him, or everybody, that it wasnt a fart. the entire pool turned brown and took weeks to clean.

18 Abuse in public

This list took a dark turn

19 Trunks/Bikini bottoms/Costume rip by your butt
20 Seeing naked old women/men in the change rooms
21 You get caught kissing a girl

Why would you kiss someone in the pool? :/

22 Nose bleed
23 When the teacher from the class you're failing sees your parents
24 You're fully clothed and you grab a pipe you thought was stable and it's not so you fall in

That's quite specific.

25 Your foot gets caught in the filter
26 There is a naked little boy in the girls changing room.

While it is a little kid, it is really awkward when a mom has got her little children naked in the changing room.

27 When you are using the restroom, but the stalls don’t lock, so someone opens the stall while you are trying to take a #2.

What does #2 mean?!?!

Very specific but surprisingly common.

They can at least look under the stall for a pair of feet! Jeez people. If you think it is rude to look under a stall, then maybe you should think about how much more rude it is to invade someone’s privacy!

It is even worse if you are a girl and you are wearing a one piece bathing suit, because you are entirely naked!

28 You forget to change into your swimwear and swim in your clothes.
29 You inadvertently go in the deep end when nobody knows you can't swim
