15 People Share Their Embarrassing Stories — That Happened to Someone Else

I once saw a dude break through a glass wall with a ladder.

I don’t think he saw it coming.

Or maybe he did, and from his angle he thought he had more room.

I don’t know. From my angle it was pretty obvious that something was about to go down.

So I watched, and I waited, and it happened.

I should have said something.

But then it would just be a story about that time I told a guy to watch out for the glass.

You deserve more than that.

In that spirit, here are 15 other times when something super embarrassing happened to somebody else:

#1. Poké-balls

I work near a college campus. The day Pokémon Go came out all hell broke loose. Saw a guy who was playing the app walk directly into a pole that was just a bit taller than his junk because he wasn’t looking up from his phone. Nuts were smashed. I camped out near that pole every day at lunch to watch people playing Pokémon wander into it. Day three, here comes the guy from day one, right into the same pole. Nuts smashed again!

#2. “My chair is so squeaky!”

My best friend from high school farted during quiet reading time in English class. It must have been loud because the popular girls surrounding her looked up in disgust. In a panic, my friend grabbed her seat and with forced bewilderment said, “Oh my! My chair is so squeaky!” She then proceeds to rock and shift positions frantically but the chair doesn’t make a sound. Clearly defeated, my friend spent the rest of class burning in self loathing.

#3. For Example:

My brother was in an HR course and they were doing presentations on different issues in the workplace. One group ended their presentation by showing a clip they found online on sexual harassment in the workplace. For some reason they never bothered to watch the full video because halfway through it, it turned into a porno and the entire class was cringing/trying not to burst out laughing.

#4. “I’m so sorry, Vinnie.”

All the kids in my 5th grade class were passing out Valentine’s during our party. When I finished I went back to my desk and found a huge Hallmark-style envelope on my desk, too big to fit in the box I had decorated. Confused, I opened it and found a real Valentine’s card, with a declaration of love from a classmate named Vinnie. My teacher saw me reading it, grabbed it and cheekily read it out loud to the class. I was mortified. I didn’t think for a moment she would be cruel enough, but then she said who it was from and my heart sank. Vinnie hid his head in his arms at his desk, began to cry and shake, then ran off to the bathroom. I have never seen a more embarrassing moment and I hated my teacher for the rest of the year. I still do, in fact. I’m so sorry Vinnie.

#5. Towel

Female co-worker was working from home (we’re all remote employees), joined a conference call, and didn’t realize she was also broadcasting her webcam. We all saw her in only a towel. The call got very quiet until someone privately IMed her and she shut it off.

#6. “Look at it!”

With my old aunt on the bus once. She’s a bit deaf, so she tends to speak louder than necessary. She leans over to me, and in a hushed, but VERY audible voice that everyone heard, says to me “OMG, look at that woman’s gross baby… no look, it’s so gross, oh my god… -nudges at me hard-… look at it!” … yeah, the woman with the baby was sitting right next to us across the aisle within ear shot. Cringe.

#7. Sorry, Andrew

A kid in my school was put in a group project for a productions class. He was very weird, odd, awkward. Anyhow, long story short, he took a camera home to ‘review’ footage. The next day it was time to review the project in front of the class. Evidently, he had filmed himself masturbating, but hadn’t quite erased all the film by taping over it. Apparently, the class caught just a couple frames of him jerking off right at the end of the film. The class was in hour 7, so he immediately ran out of class and onto the bus. Before the bus could leave, he was approached by a group of administrative staff. He ended up having a panic attack on the bus, kicking, screaming, flailing.

Anyhow he works at a gas station now. Good luck to you Andrew.
