9 of the most mortifying moments you'll ever know

When you want to die inside.

1. When someone comes up to you and they know your name

But you can’t remember theirs.


2. When you push a door that you’re supposed to pull


3. When you can’t hear someone

And you’ve already said ‘What?’ too many times, and you can’t say it again. So you just agree.

4. When you go to dinner on a first date

And try to look sophisticated while eating.

5. When you wave at your friend

But it’s not your friend.

6. When your chair makes a farting noise

And you’re worried people think you’ve farted. So to prove them wrong you try making the noise again, and it won’t do it.

7. When your friend leaves the room

And you’re left alone with someone you don’t know at all for an uncomfortable period.

So, how about that… weather?

8. When you’re sitting on the toilet answering a major call of nature

And somebody walks into the public bathroom.

9. When you walk through a spider’s web in public

And only realise afterwards that you looked like this.

What have we missed? What are the moments that make you die a little bit inside? Let us know in the comments…
