All these of course are based on true story. Most of them are my embarrassing moments and some of them are my classmate’s, but of course, I won’t specify which ones are mine.
Bad: When someone you do not know says hi to you and you reluctantly say hi back. You plaster on a smile and fight not to furrow your eyebrows as you try to recall who on earth this person is and where on earth you met him.
Worse: The stranger wasn’t actually saying hi to you, but to the person behind you.
Bad: When your friend confides to you about her crush and her crush happens to be the same person you’re starting to like.
Worse: You hinted to this guy that your friend likes him and you discover he likes her, too. (Ouch)
Bad: When you called your classmate’s phone and panicked when her fluent English-speaking mother answered it and you made a fool by stammering in broken English and by hanging up without a proper goodbye.
Worse: Her mother recognized your voice and happened to know you’re the class valedictorian.
Bad: When you joked and nobody laughed.
Worse: When you set to magnify a friend’s embarrassing moment (above) but it backfired because nobody was paying attention to you. In the end, you were more embarrassed than your friend.
Bad: When you’re stuck in one of the comfort room’s cubicle
Worse: When you tried helping your friend get out of the cubicle she’s stuck in but you ended up kicking the wrong cubicle
Worst: (Thank God this didn’t really happen.) When there was someone else (a stranger with unfinished business) inside the cubicle you kicked.
Bad: When you’re sister posted a ridiculously funny stolen shot of you washing your face with your eyeliner all smudged up.
Worse: She tagged your common friends
Worst: One of your friends saved your mortifying picture and used it to blackmail you
Bad: When you stumbled down the sidewalk and scathed your precious knee
Worse: Two strangers witnessed your fall.
Worst: You happened to be a tall college Medical Technology Student and not a clumsy seven-year-old kid
