8 ways you've definitely mortified yourself on the internet


THE WORLD WIDE web is often heralded as one of the greatest discoveries of our time.

Sure didn’t it do wonders for communications and research? AND change the way we all went about our daily lives?

It also brought with it the potential for even more daily mortification though.

Here are 8 ways in which you’ve managed to leave your granny scarleh’ for havin’ your ma via the internet:

1. Creating a ridiculous email address when you were 14 that’s now connected to everything and therefore impossible to delete.

2. Accidentally sending an email meant for a friend to your whole contacts list in work.

And now you just KNOW everyone in the office looks at you differently.

4. Adding your ma on Facebook. 

It was all a bit of harmless fun to begin with.

And then she started leaving you comments.

And spent a good hour going through all those old posts you forgot to hide.

She knows it all now. She’s seen EVERYTHING.

5. Heading out on the town for a bit of a session only to wake up and discover that drunk texts were the last of your worries.

It’s ok though, we know a guy who knows how to deal with this sort of thing.

6. Feeding the trolls and REALLY getting into it.

7. Making a spelling or grammar mistake in a comments section or online forum.

Generally involving the words your and you’re. Or their and there.

While attempting to make a REALLY important point in an argument with one of these lads.

8. Accidentally liking a photo, tagging a photo or liking/commenting on a status while Facebook creeping.

And hope to God they haven’t got email notifications switched on.
