There are few things worse than completely and utterly embarrassing yourself in front of a crowd of people. These are the times in life you wish a black hole would appear and you could crawl in and never come out of. Unfortunately, there’s no such thing, and the only way out of a real-life cringe moment is tough. We often remember these moments for the rest of our lives, only wishing they were part of a nightmare we could wake up from, instead of our reality.
Reading about these moments is hard enough, but at least you can take solace that other people hae been throught moments just as bad and even worse. Read ahead for some true stories of cringe moments that might make your own most cringe-worthy stories feel a lot lighter.
Use Two Hands!
When something’s taking forever when we’re in a rush, the time feels like it’s moving exponentially slowly. This is especially true at restaurants and grocery stores when we’re surrounded by food. We curse ourselves for picking the wrong line, but by that time, it’s usually too late to move. When this Reddit user snapped, he shouted at the cashier who was taking his sweet time. He said, “this line is huge! Things would go a lot quicker if you used two hands.” When the cashier turned around to show him he only had one arm because doctors amputated his other one, he froze. Just reading this makes us want to disappear (via Joe11088).
