25 People Admit The Most Embarrassing Thing That Has Ever Happened To Them


Back in 199..something, baggy pants were the shit. I was wearing one that was ridiculously big for me. That alone would be embarrassing enough but I had to run to get the bus and it came down. It doesn’t end there! I tripped on it and fell, broke my arm. I was lying on the floor literally in the middle of the street, cars had to stop, with my pants down and a broken arm.


Passed out as I couldn’t hold my diarrhea anymore. My father had to carry me on his shoulder to the closest medical place. I was 15. I love you dad. And people, don’t hold your diarrhea.


I was at a fair with my ex boyfriend and his family, the sun was shining very brightly in my face and I saw my ex walk ahead of me, so I walked faster and grabbed his hand. Next thing I know I hear “what the hell” and I look up and it’s his cousin. Still cringe.


I was about 5 years old and my grandparents and I had just picked my cousin (who is my age) up from the airport. We were driving home and I was eager to talk to my cousin because I hadn’t seen him in a while. Apparently my idea of appropriate conversation was “You know when your wiener gets all hard? That’s called a wiener-upper.” My grandpa just told me to change the subject. Years later I remember this and cringed my face into oblivion.


You know when you’re real little and you don’t have social graces. Well, when I was a youngin’ me and this neighborhood girl would play doctor so to speak. Harmless kid stuff, showing each other your genitals, typical. I later thought it would be fun to play doctor in front of her and my family during dinner. She didn’t really play though, I just whipped my dick out and said “check me out.”
