We all have had embarrassing moments in our lives. Most of the time, these situations occur around strangers and can be easily forgotten. However, when luck is not on your side, you might end up red-faced in front of your friends. Some of them may have happened at home or out on the streets but the worst ones are always reserved for the classroom. These moments form an integral part of our college stories, whether we like them or not.
Here is a list of some of the common classroom embarrassments that you or people you know may have faced.
1. Getting caught while sleeping
This is on top of our embarrassing stories simply because all of us faced it at least once. Let’s be honest, classes are hard enough without adding the boring lectures. So it’s no big deal to doze off in a couple of them. But what’s awkward is getting caught by the teacher while you are happily dreaming and drooling.
2. Confidently answering the question wrong
Sometimes the teacher asks a question and you answer it like a boss, thinking that you know exactly what you’re talking about. But as it turns out, you showed that confidence for nothing, because surprise-surprise – you couldn’t be more wrong! And the teacher then proceeds to make an example out of you in order to illustrate what is wrong with the world. Talk about classroom embarrassments!
3. Getting caught while passing chits
Passing chits was the most common method of conversation in classrooms in the pre-mobile era. Thinking that you’re too smart to get caught, you pass chits, when suddenly a hand grabs that chit and the teacher then read it out for the benefit of the entire class. Leaving you mortified in front of the entire class!
4. Farting loudly
After a long stint in the bathroom, you think everything is fine in the world. But your body decides to play a joke on you and you rip a loud one right in the middle of the class. What’s worse is when it stinks and everyone knows you did it.
5. Wardrobe malfunction
You are highly mistaken if you thought that wardrobe malfunctions were just limited to red carpets or fashion runways. Most classrooms have seen more than their fair share of pants ripping, buttons popping, pants wedgies and bra straps snapping randomly. For some reason, these situations have an uncanny way of happening only when you are giving presentations in front of the whole class. And if you thought that nothing can make it more embarrassing, think again. Imagine any of these happening in front of your crush!
Looking back at some of these situations may have made you want to crawl under a rock and just stay there for eternity. But now these incidents are long gone and you can afford to laugh at them. Even we want to laugh with you, so please do share with us some of your embarrassing s in the comments.
