Top Ten Most Embarrassing Things That Could Happen


The Top Ten

1 Waving at a stranger, who is waving at somebody else

I wouldn't wave back to a stranger, but one of my friend’s names is really similar to mine, and there was this person who I knew who was saying hi to them, but I thought they were saying it to me, and it was really embarrassing. - sadical

Oh my God! YES! This has happened to me more than once. The look on their face... As though you've lost your carer. So awkward. - Britgirl

I really hate this. And also when they say "Excuse me" or "hey" to someone behind you and you think it's you. Aaargh! - PositronWildhawk

This happens so many times😂

2 Getting rejected by someone you don't even like

Why would you ask someone who you don't like to go on a date with you? - sadical

That's an awkward situation. Something similar to that happened to me. But, I liked the person who rejected me. Basically, this moron wrote a fake apology, stating that I wanted to call her "babe". This caused some controversy amongst my peers. - ethanmeinster

3 Talking trash about someone in a text, and then sending it to the wrong person.

All you have to do to avoid this is not send mean messages about others! - sadical

4 Throwing up in front of somebody you like

At least you didn't do what Ricky Dillon did. He literally threw up on his crush once. - happyhappyjoyjoy

5 Rip off your pants and underwear in front of 6 billion people

Number 7? Why? It should be number one immediately! - DrayTopTens

At what moment is most of the world watching me? - Ahuman

That wouldn't happen because there can't be 6 billion people in the same place at once. - sadical

6 Your parents holding your hand

How old are you? - SuperBacca

I don't think it's embarrassing and I'm 9

Well I'm seventeen and if your parents force you to at my age, see if you think it's embarrassing. - Swiftdawn

Mom:Hold my hand crossing the street.
Me: What why? No.
Mom: Do it so you don't wander off.
Me: What the hell my school is right there.
Seriously? - Swiftdawn

7 Being beaten up by someone smaller than you

Then you are a wimp. - Userguy44

I'm not scared of that many rides unless you go upside down.

18 When you are about to give your presentation in front of your class, your mom walks in and hands you a diaper and says "You forgot to wear one today" then walks over to your crush and says "So you are the girl/boy that my child loves so much!"


This never happened to me but I can understand how some people would feel because that would be really humiliating if your Mom came in with a diaper in her hand and then she basically told your crush that you love them in front of the entire class and you would get teased so bad if that ever happened to me I would have been blushing so hard I wouldn’t Want my Mom to do that in front of everyone they would laugh until they couldn’t anymore I’m sorry that happened to you guys if that ever happened to me then that would have been my most embarrassing moment

OH GOD OH GOD OH GOOD NOO BAD BAD BA D BA D BAAD MEMEMEMEMEEMMEMEEMMEEMORIIEIEIEIESS!...sorry I had to let that out of the system, anyway I was going into class and sat down next to my best friend then...MY MOM CAME IN AND HANDED IN MY BABY PICTURE! (It's a project we were doing) mom showed it to the whole class and they all laughed at me the picture featured me with messy hair, a dirty diaper, drool and pasta on my face and I was holding a barney dinosaur. IT WAS SO BAD THAT I GOT CALLED BARNEY FAN FOR ALMOST A WEEK AGGGH

Let me tell you a story. I was in Kindergarten at the time. I was very smart for my age, and I had written an essay about Women’s History Month and I was presenting it to the class. My mother who worked at the school came in with a bag. She was holding a diaper. “Cole, you forgot to wear these today.” She said. Coming over to me with a diaper in her hand. She takes my hand to lead me to the Men’s room and she stop’s at my crushes desk. Her name was Billie, odd name but we became close friends after this incident. My mother leans over her desk and says “You must be Billie, my son loves you! He talks about you all the time! It’s a pleasure to meet you.” The entire classed was very amused and they still tease me about it today. Throwing diapers at me in the halls, making kissy faces whenever she’s around. She’s probably forgotten all about it. I’m still mortified to this day.
