Being embarrassed in front of other people is the worst. Whether one faces a goofy fall, burps very loud, or says something inappropriate unintentionally; it is always uncomfortable to become the center of attention.
Things get ten times awkward when such stuff gets posted online and thousands of people get to see it. Luckily for us, we can get a good laugh out of their momentary misfortune.
If Disappointment Had a Face
Every family has some interesting characters. When every member of the family gets under one roof during any occasion or holiday, things are bound to get exciting. Take this family, for example, it has a fully grown-up guy who has an unparalleled love for Pokémon.
Everything was going okay as long as the guy kept his love to himself, but things took a weird turn when he decided to announce it publicly. He is so proud to have an impeccable collection of Pokémon, but other members of his family don’t share the same pride, especially the elderly people. The look of disappointment on their face speaks volumes.
Social Media Can Be Harsh
Everybody who uses or has ever used social media knows that this place can be very harsh. This is why people must always be mindful of their activities on such platforms. Unfortunately, some people don’t take this warning seriously and end up getting hurt like this poor girl.
Looks like this young lady just wanted to feel praised for her beauty. So she decided to head to the platform where people say anything but the truth. She created a poll and within a small period of time, she realized why this was such a big mistake. Now she knows what not to do on social media.
Schools Can Be Harsh Too
A school is a place in which people have very polarizing emotions toward each other. Some loved their time at school and wish to relive it, while the others are just glad that they made it out of there and it’s finally over. This is the story of a person who never liked going to school.
We cannot blame the person because if this is what happened to them, they have all the right to hate schools. It’s very natural to dislike a person, but the way this girl reacted after being assigned a partner was ridiculous. Imagine the embarrassment the poor person had to go through when she started balling her eyes out.
Don’t Mess With Celebs
Celebrities are public personalities, which means they are always subjected to people’s opinions and comments. While it’s nice to hear people talking about one, it can also get tiring when people come out of nowhere just to poke their noses at everything a celeb does.
While we usually see stars donning a calm demeanor, this one time a celeb decided to put people in their place, and the celeb was no other than Lady Gaga. One fan thought he could get Gaga’s attention as he had a verified account, and he did get the attention, only in the wrong way. Gaga’s reply was funny and it must have made many people chuckle a little.
A Fine Line Between Honesty and Insult
The dating culture has become scary. People are very vocal these days so one never knows when it’s time that they get rejected blatantly. While it must be hard for some people to let the other person know that they did not enjoy it, others have no hard time expressing their displeasure.
This woman went on a date with what it seems like and was a nice guy. He politely left a text afterward, showing how he enjoyed the lady’s company. Unfortunately, things were not the same on the other hand. The lady made sure she conveyed her message with utmost honesty, and in the process, crossed the fine line between honesty and insult.
So Close Yet So Far Away
This picture aptly paints a fairy tale gone wrong kind of situation. Sometimes the thing you want the most comes just within your reach, only to race past you forever. This is exactly what happened to this girl who came across a charming guy standing behind her at a football game.
The girl took to social media to find the guy and while she hit the jackpot with tracking him down, what went forward turned out to be a complete disappointment. The guy did make contact with the girl, however, only to tell her that she was not his type. How sad!
Worst Fear Coming True
It goes without saying that ladies share each and everything with their best friends. Be it emotional stuff or the prospect of a new boyfriend; they ask for opinions all the time. Yet, sometimes, asking for opinions could really lead to embarrassing situations just like this one here.
From the looks of it, when the guy named Connor asked the girl to hang out together sometime, she was too eager to hit her best friend up to discuss the whole thing. Yet, in a hurry, she ended up realizing her worst fear by sending the screenshot of her conversation with Connor back to him instead of her friend.
Breaking His Heart, Twice!
If you ask us, this may just be the most hurtful and funny thing at the same time. Not only did the girl manage to break this poor guy’s heart, but she also did so twice! Apparently, the guy asked for her number during their run-in at a bar. Afterward, when he texted her, she played the oldest trick in the book on him to get him off her back.
Surely, that must’ve hurt the guy that the bar lady gave her the wrong number. Yet, imagine the heartache when you find out a year later that it was, in fact, the girl’s own number, and she just lied about it being the wrong one. Well played, Camryn!
Why Not to Give Pets Unique Names
It surely hurts when you are going through the loss of a dear one, and the people around you do not quite know the gravity of the situation and hit you up like there is nothing wrong in the world. This is exactly what happened to this guy who made a post on social media regarding his dog, who had just passed away.
Oblivious of the sad incident and the fact that ‘UNO’ was, in fact, the name of his recently passed away dog and not the game, one of his friends approached him full of zeal that they should definitely play it together. Things got really embarrassing when he told the friend about his dog.
Maybe They Just Want the Retirement
This is as hilarious as social media could get. First of all, it is unbelievable how this guy is deciding what to do next in his career through a social media poll. Secondly, the fact which makes this all the funnier is that while he is asking where to go next and clearly doesn’t want to retire, he has a retirement option included in the polls.
Lastly, it’s sad to see that while he believed that people were trolling by hitting the retirement option in his poll, the majority vote still wants him to retire. Maybe his fans actually want him to finally leave the sport and go home. How heartbreaking!
He Gave His Best
It’s okay if we apply the word “different things appeal to different people” in this situation, but we are carried away with feeling pity for this man that seems to have done wrong. He had everything planned out and felt he was on track to sweep his girlfriend off her feet, but it didn’t end well. Reading through the sad text from the girlfriend’s mom, we could see that the girl didn’t have a nice time.
The lady had to reach out for tips on passing the dinner successfully, while the man thought he had given it his best shot. Perhaps the only thing lacking in the meal was lack of proper communication, which the man never noticed.
Just A Bit Insecure
It’s normal to get insecure, but this one hits differently! Have you ever encountered a guy who says, “my girlfriend can’t play with guys on XBOX, even if they live in different countries?” Yes, the word insecure is the perfect description for the message this guy is trying to pass across to his beloved. There comes a time in our lives when we feel humiliated, but there should be a limit to it.
Examining this situation, a man was uncomfortable with the idea of his girlfriend remotely playing video games with other guys who were miles away. Well, it might look like he is trying to protect her, but in the real sense, it is a big red flag!
Tragic Can’t Even Explain What Happened
People should understand that sometimes, there is virtue in keeping certain facts to yourself to avoid hurting how others feel. As humans, what we should look out for the most is how not to hurt others, but the reverse is the case with this guy who practically does not respect other people’s feelings.
He’ll spill out the actual word, and you’d have to deal with it in your way. The guy should have just said it was a mistake and kindly let it slide, but he had to shame the other person negatively, which only made things worse. Indeed, it was a tragic occurrence for the other fellow.
We Feel For Gary
Facebook is like a magical platform that keeps old memories and pops them up occasionally, but this is unbelievable! Even if no one is there to scream or whisper happy birthday to us physically, this app is sure to give pleasant wishes coming from distant friends and families. But it’s quite disappointing for Gary that no one took time to wish him on his big day.
We know this does not sit well with you because it seems no one cared enough to notice your birthday notification. It’s even more painful if Gary had invested much time in wishing others during their birthday.
Oh No…This Is Less Expected
A speed dating event is meant to give people fun and unforgettable memory. But, looking at this picture, it’s disheartening to see an empty room that ought to be buzzing with different activities of people experiencing something new. As it seems, not even a single soul came to the venue, but this is not all about the photo you see!
On the other hand, when you sit back to think about the person who uploaded the picture of this empty room, you’d agree that the word “no one” is not so true. At first, this might sound awkward, but someone did come to the venue, only that the room seemed empty to them. The man behind the camera and the organizers were at the venue.
You Don’t Need To Text Your Thoughts
This conversation is among the kind-of disturbing date story that is probably worse than the crappy date chat you've ever seen. We certainly don't have a particular word to describe how we felt while taking a gander at this guy's dating plea to a woman who is practically mourning her dad, but we'll give it our best shot.
The woman in question shared a memoriable photo she took with her late father, but the only thought in this man's heart was how he'd make this woman start going out with him. It's a free world, you can reason in that direction, but man, you don't have to reveal such motive under her tribute.
Not The Right Thing To Do
Sometimes Smartphones are life saver-like when it helps avoid some awkward situation. But other times, it’s a gadget people use to pass time weirdly. Instead of harnessing the smartphone’s potential like many of us, this individual texted his deceased neighbor’s phone. We can only guess he did this out of boredom, but it never ended as he probably expected.
This boredom-inspired disheartening text could’ve been evaded if only he had made judicious use of his time. As it is, maybe we should learn to channel our time and energy into something more prolific than sending a distress message to widows via their late husbands’ telephones.
They're Not Showing Up, Friend
This person feels they have done their best to host a party, but luckily for this individual, others might not like it here.
Wanting to have a party and invite some friends over to this unattractive place is a big no; had the people who were invited honored this invitation, they'd be disappointed.
No matter how it comes, no one deserves to experience the hurtful feeling of rejection. We don't know what this person did to be deserted by those who should show up, but it's kind of disrespectful. Buddy, we know this pain, and our thoughts are with you. At least you now have the entire party treats to yourself.
They'll Have To Figure Out How It Ended
This is certainly not a good one. The text on this screenshot shows that two people were having a virtual movie date, which sounds pretty good in a 21st-century world. Or perhaps, the duo wanted to take things slowly and from a distance until they were comfortable to meet physically.
The virtual movie hangout was going well until it was interrupted by one of their exes who chose to call at the wrong time; thus, the other person had to wait. But the question is how long the call was? With the look of things, the phone call might be an excuse to stop the movie date from proceeding. Either way, that's not a smart thing to do.
The Joke Was Not Appreciated
Aren’t knock-knock jokes pretty outdated now? Well, we have no problem if two people still get a chuckle or two out of it. This is what it looked like was happening here until the last text. Someone’s boyfriend got offended over a simple joke between the girl and her friend.
Assuming the girl enjoyed such types of puns, we don’t understand why the boyfriend got so angry over something so harmless. It was also low of him to call the other person pathetic. His reaction can be justified in case the girl wanted the messages to stop, but she could have told the friend off herself instead of letting her boyfriend turn things unpleasant.
A Simple “No” Would Have Been The Smartest
Now that we have the internet at our disposal, it’s easy to update others about the happenings and next activities we’d be doing. But sometimes, it might get us into trouble as we don’t know who is reading our post or where it would get to. After coming across this girl’s private snap about her pending date with a fellow student, we feel it is appropriate he saw it himself. Even if it’s disheartening, the earlier he finds out, the better.
Having ulterior motives for going on a date with others is a very bad thing to do. Why not save yourself the whole trouble by simply turning down the offer or coming up with a more understandable reason? Maybe some people love getting into trouble.
Being Rude to Customer Service
We don’t want to sound preachy, but everyone needs to learn to be kind and respectful to service providers. It’s basic decency. One should understand if they can’t cater to their needs due to unavoidable circumstances. This man, however, was clearly lacking these simple social skills.
While automated bots are quite commonly used by companies for handling customers, you never know if it is a robot or a human on the other side. Instead of expressing disappointment in decent language, the man started swearing at the customer service. Hopefully, the embarrassment was enough for him to learn how to be polite and not react impulsively.
Things Went Out of Hand Too Fast
It’s painful when you can’t wait to dig into your ordered meal, but it’s hard to eat anything because you just unintentionally ruined a delivery agent’s day. A simple slip-up of writing "good looks" in place of "looks good" turned this whole thing awkward.
The Grubhub worker, Valerie, took it quite personally and went on a self-deprecation tangent that this person was not prepared for. He did try to correct himself and let her know that he wasn’t commenting on her looks, but Valerie was too far gone in her downward spiral. That cold reaction from Valerie in the last text would have had us reeling in guilt.
Misfortunes Don't Come Singly
Witchtrot fans were not prepared for what they were about to see when they woke up this particular morning. The band’s frontman, Peter, announced the group’s hiatus in a dramatic post with infidelity accusations and then casually slipped that the group’s drummer had passed away. Naturally, the post went viral, attracting thousands of reactions.
Thankfully, the part about the drummer was a joke. The rest of the announcement was sadly not a joke, but the band reunited after the break, and obviously, the backstabbing guitarist was not in the line-up.
Sorting Out the Party List
Primary schools are not sunshine and rainbows always. Kids are cute, but some can be very mean and blunt. For example, this netizen was embarrassed so harshly by their classmate in primary school that they can still recall it vividly. What didn’t help was this person indirectly contributed to their own humiliation.
We understand kids don’t often realize the impact of their words, but it can’t erase the upsetting memory for our storyteller. Nevertheless, we hope the classmate has mended her ways and is a better person now.
Wrong Place to Do ASMR
As long as you have a solid idea, you can use it to do anything online. You can gain fame for absolutely nothing and make significant sums of money. A lot of people have turned to ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response) to make money on Youtube. This Youtuber tried to join the ASMR community as well, but it didn’t go as planned.
Instead of finding a private place to record his ASMR videos, he opted to record them at work and eventually got himself fired. Well, now he can turn to making ASMR videos as a full-time job; maybe it’ll be worth it in the end.
I Need a Police Officer
Having an online presence can be a curse in disguise. Not only is your life public to strangers, but it also attracts different types of people, like creeps for example. We assume that the recipient of this unsettling SMS is a mother who shares their child’s life on social media. Yet, she never expected to receive an offer to sell her child. Yes, you read that right.
Someone, clearly with mental issues, offered to buy her baby girl claiming that they had already given her a nickname and bought her things. We hope that the mother sent this text to the authorities!
Mothers Are Always Worried
Most mothers worry about their kids even when they have grown. It’s their nature to worry and to make sure that their children are safe no matter how old they are. Take this mother, for example, who, after she saw the news about a tragic accident, immediately contacted her son to make sure he wasn’t the one involved.
She failed to notice that while the victim was 23 years old, her son was only 21. Nevertheless, her confusion only shows how concerned she was and how much she wanted to ensure that her offspring was fine to the point that she didn’t double-check the age of the actual victim.
Some Friendships Shouldn't Last Forever
When you spend hours making a gift for a loved one from scratch, you expect them to keep it forever even if they don’t like it. If you throw away a gift someone made you, you never wish them to find it ever again.
Nevertheless, this person was met with nothing but disappointment when they found the gift they handmade for their friend at the Salvation Army. It would have been funny if this person bought the gift and gifted it again to the same person. The look on their face would be priceless. Either way, we are hoping that that friendship ended after this incident.
It’s Not a Filter, That’s Just My Face
With numerous filters out there, it became a bit hard to know what’s real and what’s fake, making people say things they don’t mean. Take this post, for example; when this person shared a normal picture of herself and her father, someone assumed that they had a filter on and said what sounded like the worst compliment ever.
We are sure that both daughter and father started questioning their facial features and how others saw them after this incident. So maybe we should stick to just liking a post instead of commenting. You never know when you might offend someone.
Be Prepared for Whatever Happens Next
A few things are as painful as a prank going wrong, but nothing prepares you for the pain of having a carefully planned stunt go the wrong way. No jokes; how would you feel when you had to explain your pranks? We bet this is the reason you no longer engage in the strange tradition of 'April Fool's Day. You don't want to ruin your casual day at work.
Just so you don't end up in a heartbreaking situation like this fellow here, whenever you get tempted to prank your colleagues at work, keep this post in mind. We also advise you to be ready for whatever happens next.
That Looks Super Scary
What is Halloween without the people with all the weird and perfect decorations? And trust us when we tell you those decorations only get more bizarre and scarier with time. You will not remember it was Halloween days ago when you walk through a hallway and get greeted with realistic dolls and eerie-scary noises on a speaker. So please remember to take out all the decorations.
We are sure this guy forgot to take out his decorations. We are only wondering what his explanation would be to the cops with their ambulance at the door. No jokes; that looks super scary!
Your Skinny Arms Just Became More Evident
We bet you are not alone in wanting what you cannot have; sometimes, it gets so real, and all you want is to scream it out a little in hopes that you would at least get sympathy. Nonetheless, there is always that awkwardness that comes with trying to explain some things, which is one such situation. So who even misreads this kind of desperate tweet?
The intention was not to offend the young man; however, with the progression of this thread, we are sure he would be offended. If not for the response, for the mere fact that more people would now notice his skinny arms(which we don't have any issues with).
Planning May Require More Realistic Consideration
When the teacher in high school told you, "planning helps get all of your goals in check and be more prepared for things in the future," you didn't expect anyone to plan the next five years of their life. How do you even plan your wedding five years prior? Well, we are sure this lady can tell us better.
For someone that plans so much, it is a wonder that her plan even took her by surprise. Nonetheless, planning may require more realistic consideration. So next time you plan, be more realistic.
We Can Only Imagine His Loss
There are a few things as hilarious as walking down memory lane to all those weird things that almost the entire world believed. One of such odd things that still stand out is those fidget spinners. Man!! Parents got crazy just at the sight of those devices back in the day.
As expected, time passes, and we are all bound to move on, and so we did. Nonetheless, moving on from this trend was a lousy business for this guy who had already purchased about 6000 units. We can only imagine how much loss he made.
