If you've ever slept at someone's house after a night of drinking, it's very likely that you've experienced a walk of shame. Whether or not you got laid doesn't matter, as long as you had to get home hungover, in an outfit that wasn't meant to be seen in the daylight.

I've definitely had my fair share of walk of shames. From wobbling down the street in heels to a full face of smudged makeup, I've been there, and it's not something I enjoy.

However, despite my dislike for my own walk of shames, other people's are pure hilarious. There is nothing funnier than seeing someone wobble down the street in an outfit that was clearly worn the night before. Heck, maybe they're even limping or covered in bodily fluids. Yes, I've seen that.

Do you have a walk of shame story that you're embarrassed of? You're not alone! These people had stories that make them cringe to think about, and yet they are hilarious for us innocent bystanders. Got a hilarious walk of shame story? Let us know!

These people confess their most embarrassing (yet hilarious) walk of shame stories:


In college, woke up the next day after a party across campus. Walked back to my house. Voting was a thing that day, lots of students out encouraging to vote. I walked into a campus building, interacted with lots of people, voted and left. Got home to realize a big dick drawn in sharpie on my forehead. Was wondering why people were looking at me funny.


Met a girl on Halloween and her group of friends, she invited me back, we had like five more drinks and she was too drunk to function. Took her home, took care of her while she puked, and we woke up together and cuddled. She thanked me and invited me to stay the day with her. I did, and stayed the night again, and then on November 2nd I had to walk home as a Ninja Turtle through the financial district of our city.


When I decided to stay all night at FWB's house, I wasn't thinking about the fact that the Chicago Marathon route went right in front of my apartment building. I found myself on the opposite side of the street from my building unable to cross due to the constant runners. I asked an officer how I could get across. He said, “You're going to have to wait for a small break and run with them until you can get to the other side.” So, I waited until there was a slight clearing in the number of runners and ran out into the street. There I was, running with them in my high-heeled boots and skirt that I had on the night before. I only had to run with them for a few feet to make it across, but it was embarrassing as hell.


Today, I walked through my college campus wearing nothing but overalls cut off mid shin and a mario hat in the rain. I went out to a Halloween party as Mario, ended up at a friends house throwing up in his sink. Woke up with no idea where the rest of my clothes went but knew I had to get to my dorm, a mile away, to get dressed for class. Unfortunately, I made this walk in between classes so plenty of students saw a defeated mario.
