You know when you do something and it was just the most incredibly stupid thing and you wonder how you, a fully grown adult has survived in this hard and complicated world for so long? Sometimes, your brain just stops working and you do not make a smart choice.
It often happens for one of two reasons, the first reason, and the most excusable, is that you just never learnt something, so you never worked it out. These mistakes are often cute, and they come from a small lapse in knowledge, and they are the kind of thing people love to correct you about.
On other occasions, you have no excuse for the silly mistake, and your brain just malfunctions and, well, you are probably all too familiar with the sinking feeling that accompanies the error. The only thing you can do is face palm, and try not to run away.
Which is why the second hand embarrassment you will feel from reading these posts will be almost overwhelming. It is the kind of embarrassment that stems from the fact that you understand exactly what it is like to humiliate yourself in this small, but hilarious for other people kind of way.
At the end of the day, there is nothing more embarrassing than doing something silly, and then having other people know that you’ve done something silly. So I guess it sucks more for all these people having their awkward moments shared on the internet.
At least though, there is no harm done, and all of these people have the chance to learn from their unfortunate little mistakes. On the bright side though, we all get a good little giggle out of their misfortune.
