While life sure is more convenient with modern technology and the plethora of devices it has given us, sometimes you may find yourself yearning for the days before when your every move wasn't subject to being blasted out to the online cosmos for all to see -- well, that's assuming you're old enough to have lived through those days.
It's bad enough being embarrassed in person sometimes that you don't need to relive it in digital perpetuity, right? Then again, those smartphones and digital cameras do make it easier for us to capture others in their moments of absurdity. Maybe it all balances out in the end. And maybe someday people will forget about that thing that happened to you once. Maybe.
(But probably not, let's be realistic here.)
Here are people feeling the lowest of the low, as embarrassed as embarrassed can be, with stories retold in all their glory.
1. This Woman Waited In Line For Too Long
It's hard to believe that this woman actually waited in line for an hour, but it's even harder to believe that she didn't realize that the people in front of her weren't actually people at all. That's right, folks. This woman waited in line behind two mannequins.
2. Ambulance Selfie!
What are the chances of this happening? These two besties were posing for a photo after celebrating a birthday, and they just happened to get a woman riding in an ambulance in their selfie. We can't decide if this is more embarrassing for the girls or the woman headed to the hospital.
3. Excuse Me, Miss?
It's not too uncommon to see people walking with toilet paper stuck to their shoe. However, this woman had toilet paper coming out the back of her pants. One can't help but wonder just how this happens. And, of course, the biggest question: Do we say something to her or not?
4. Texas Fan, Eh?
"My husband asked my gynecologist if he was a Texas Longhorn," wrote a social media user. Evidently, this uterus model didn't register with this woman's husband. It's possible that the doctor was a Longhorn fan, but we're positive that he wasn't displaying such in his office.
5. Sweet Beard, Bro
This guy lost the internet when his friends found out that he used an app to put a fake beard on his face. It was a good attempt, but people were really quick to call him out. Guys who have trouble growing beards beware: Don't use an app and pass it off as facial hair. The internet knows better.
6. That's A Lovely Patterned Shirt... Hey, Wait A Minute!
It's not every day that someone falls in love with a pattern on a subway seat. However, this woman apparently really liked the pattern -- so much so, that she decided to have a shirt made out of it. Or maybe, just maybe, it was a coincidence. Internet, what say you?
7. Spelling Lessons Come After The Wedding
Just about everyone is super excited after tying the knot. Apparently, these newlyweds were so excited, that they added an extra letter to the word "married." Someone is never going to live this embarrassing mistake down. We'd like to think that this is some kind of private joke, but something tells us that the groom is just a really bad speller.
8. That Pole Just Came Out Of Nowhere!
This woman had an entire parking lot -- she simply had to choose a spot and park her car. Well, she chose a spot alright. She decided to park in the spot where there was a pole -- and she hit it. Thankfully, someone was there to capture this moment and post it on the internet for all to see.
9. Not Even One Letter
There's nothing like a new tattoo, amirite? Sometimes, people plan their new ink for months, really thinking about what they want, where they want it, and what it means to them. Well, "no regrets" is definitely a motto that several people live by -- hopefully this guy doesn't regret not spelling the word correctly.
10. When You Really Love The Shoes
Sometimes, you really love a pair of shoes so much, that it doesn't matter whether they fit or not. So, if one of your toes has to hang out the side of the shoe? So be it. If someone happens to find this hilarious and snaps a picture to share with the internet? So be it.
What are the chances that you'd show up at a bus stop and be wearing a near-identical outfit to the one other person at that bus stop? Well, that's exactly what happened to these two people. They kept their distance from one another, but someone still picked up on the embarrassing coincidence.
12. Who Will You Kiss Tonight?
We'd like to think that this guy knew what he was doing, but something tells us he didn't. We'd also like to know just how long he stayed in this mysterious lip lock -- and what happened when the girl on the other side of the mask found out what was going on behind her back...
13. "Mirror, Mirror, On The Wall"
Going out on a limb here and saying that this chick really craves attention. Not only did she post a photo of herself "passed out," but she actually took the photo herself, clearly faking it. Next time, maybe make sure there's no mirror in your shot -- or just don't do this.
14. "Abort Mission!"
Only best friends know what this is about. One chick is at the doctor's office and spots a hot guy. Naturally, she wants to share the eye candy with her bestie. She takes a picture to send -- and her flash goes off. Now, she's forced to run out of the waiting room. Hilarity.
15. I Can Already Feel The Ouch
How nice. Decorating your steering wheel with cute rocks. So that if and when your airbag ever deploys, you get hit in the face with them. We have to wonder if this thought even crossed the mind of this crafty driver.
