19 People Confess Their Most Embarrassing Walk of Shame Stories


I was sleeping with a guy for a couple of weeks, let’s call him Matt. We weren’t dating, just hooking up. I hooked up with a great guy & was massively hungover, doing the walk of shame across the quad back to my room. It was a sunny, clear May morning. I had cigarettes, and was patting down my pockets looking for a lighter, when I stumbled across Matt, also doing the walk of shame and massively hungover, having a nic fit because he lost his cigarettes the night before when he hooked up with some girl at a party. He had a lighter, I had cigarettes, we sat down and had a smoke, then completed the walk of shame back to our dorm, telling each other to have a good summer when he got off the elevator on his floor.


Hooked up with this guy. Realllyyy wanted to leave, but didn’t have my car with me and it was 5am, so I laid there. He woke up and went to the bathroom, and for some reason I thought this was my chance to leave. So, I decided to climb down from his balcony and walk 2 hours home with my dress on, and bra and underwear in my hands… And I was barefoot… Because I forgot my fucking shoes. Many crackheads were alllll about me during that long walk.


Well there was that one time I dressed as Catwoman for halloween, which was a friday, slept at a friend’s, then had to walk of shame back to my dorm on a football saturday. I went to a Big 10 school, so there were a LOT of people out and about.


In middle school I had khaki pants on. Thought I had to fart, but it was actually the beginnings of liquid diarrhea and it happened while walking between classes. I went in the bathroom and tried to clean up in the stall, but it was already too late – the shit had seeped through my undies and all on the back of my khakis. Walked straight out of the bathroom (mid-period, so no one saw), out the door and walked home without telling a soul. I lived about 3/4 of a mile away from school and had to walk a main street to get home. Most shameful walk of my life. Can only imagine how many people drove by and saw me walking with my shit-stained pants along the main street.
