20 everyday embarrassing moments that literally make you want to die

Swallow me up, world.

1. When you’re chatting away to someone you’re certain is named Sinéad and you’re like, “Yes, great point, Sinead” and a few moments later, you hear them introduce themselves as Saoirse and you legitimately want to crawl into a hole and die.

2. When you’re out and about, and someone points out to you that the tag is still on your top/dress/jacket.

3. When you’re strutting confidently around the club…. and realise there’s tissue paper stuck to the sole of your shoe. Terrific!

4. When you take a tumble after having so much as a *sip* of alcohol and you have to be like, “No, I’m not drunk, I swear,” but you can feel everyone thinking, “She’s a state, God love her.”

5. When you accidentally send a text to the person the text is about and you have to decide whether you’re going to (a) be an adult and accept the consequences or (b) PRETEND IT WAS A HILARIOUS PRANK!

6. When you make a terrible Dad joke to a taxi driver/delivery man/person doing work in your house and they don’t hear you and you’re forced to repeat yourself even though it’s just a terrible joke and it really doesn’t matter.

7. When you’re midway through a story and you know you’re boring the tits off everyone, but you’re so far into it that there’s no going back.

8. When you VERY CONFIDENTLY push a door and it turns out to be a pull.

9. When you think you’re queuing on the right side in the shop… and then you see a longer queue begin to form at the other side.

10. When you’re accidentally staring at someone AND THEY MAKE EYE CONTACT WITH YOU.

11. When you ‘favourite’ a tweet that’s in the middle of a conversation just to make it abundantly clear that you’ve been creeping.

12. When you accidentally drop an innuendo in a wholly inappropriate context and have to compose yourself.

13. When so-called “friends” start commenting on a photo of you in the horrors from 2009 on Facebook and you start to fret that it’s appearing on everyone’s timelines :O 

14. When you’re watching telly with your parents and something borderline pornographic starts happening. “Tea, anyone?”

15. When someone on telly uses some slang for sex/drugs that your parents don’t understand and they ask you to explain it. “I’ve never heard of it.”

16. When you have a wedding present but you don’t want to disrupt the bride and groom and can’t see where people are leaving them. You either (a) leave it on a table and hope someone notices it or (b) end up carrying it around for the day and posting it a few weeks later.

17. When you make a hames of folding something back up in the shop and just sort of leave it there in a ball and leave. (All while terrified that a security guard will reprimand you when you leave.)

18. When you’re with your Mam in a slightly notions place and she starts barking about how expensive everything is. “€8 FOR A SANDWICH, WELL NOW.”

19. When you leave an ‘x’ on a text to someone you are most certainly not in a ‘leaving-x-on-a-text’ relationship with AKA your boss/landlord/fella you’re buying a car from on DoneDeal.

20. When someone goes in to kiss your cheek and you either (a) just sort of press your cheek against theirs or (b) go for a second kiss when the other person isn’t. Swallow us up.
