Embarrassing Situations: We have all been there!

Have you ever excitedly waved back at another person, just to find out he was greeting someone else? Or, made a complete fool out of yourselves by accidentally saying aloud a swear word during a class or a corporate meeting?

We have all been in such embarrassing situations, at least once in our lifetime. While some like to keep these incidents private, others share them with friends or with an even greater set of audience on social media.

We have gathered such amusing accounts from various platforms – that we will be sharing to lighten up your mood.

When you accidentally crash at someone’s wedding

As children, we all used to fantasize attending a random wedding, enjoy the feast and sneak out unnoticed. Even though most of us never got to live that adventurous dream, some people accidentally did end up there.

The following screenshot of an online post is evidence that we didn’t just make up a story!

Well, this is where unfamiliarity with the native language of your travel destination could lead you. Therefore, make sure you choose a vacation spot wisely, or use a translator app.

When you weren’t supposed to reveal the stalking

Today, hardly anyone can claim they are not addicted to social media. We are all guilty of stalking people; be they our crushes, the new colleagues at the workplace, or those who we don’t really get along with.

Let`s confess that the following is an embarrassing situation we have all been in.

While being engrossed in exploring our target’s Facebook or Instagram activity, we sometimes accidentally like an old post or picture. This is particularly embarrassing because it alerts the other person that you have been secretly following them.

Making a complete fool out of yourselves

There are some incidents which are so embarrassing that even though you felt like a complete fool at the time of occurrence, you can’t control your laughter when you recall them years later.

Below is a savage example that someone shared 30 years after the incident. It will surely leave you in fits:

Who are you?

Just like the misunderstood wave discussed at the beginning of this article, a classic embarrassing situation would be if you move towards someone with open arms thinking they are calling for a hug, just to find out that they actually were initiating one BUT it wasn’t for you!

A friend shared that she thought someone stood up to hug them, but received the response that the gesture was actually meant for the person behind her.

Do I know you?

Now imagine the above situation in reverse.

It is equally embarrassing that you greet a stranger with a smile or a wave, thinking you know them from those dance classes, but feel humiliated when they respond with a blank stare, or even worse ask:

 “Excuse me! Do I know you?”

No comments!

What could be a more embarrassing situation than this?

We salute the spirit of the woman who shared the incident, even if it was meant to stay between her and her siblings.

Camera leaked the secret!

How many times have you visited a high-end fashion store and secretly tried clicking pictures of the designs to get them tailor-made from a more affordable garment-maker? Or, tried to secretly capture a shot of an unknown person at an event to show your friend how much he/she resembles them?

We have all indulged in such not-so ethically appropriate activities once, but can you imagine how humiliating the scenario would be if you forget to turn off the camera flash, and your secret is revealed!

It would not only result in judgmental comments and disapproving stares, but also make you want to vanish from the venue as soon as possible.

A complete misunderstanding

There are instances when we either completely misread the situation, or misunderstand what the other person is trying to communicate to us. Such misinterpretations may be an outcome of the context in which the conversation is being carried out, or our own diverted state of mind. Whatever be the case, the unrelated response can leave us in an extremely embarrassing situation.

Below is an example of one such occurrence that someone shared online:

The renowned push vs. pull scenario

Let’s not deny, we have all been there!

Pulling a door that clearly read “push”- who hasn’t made that blunder when being gazed at by at least 10 people?

This is not funny!

Sometimes we end up in embarrassing situations that are not funny at all. Rather, we would feel guilty for behaving in a particular way at serious occasions and our behavior may have even hurt someone’s feelings.

The below screenshot depicts one such scenario the OP ended up in.
