Hold the applause: Public humiliation
53. My friends and I were at McDonalds, and there weren’t
enough chairs at the table. There was a highchair, so I decided to sit in it.
Bad idea. When it was time to go, I couldn’t get out. After 10 minutes of
really hard work, I finally struggled out. As if that wasn’t bad enough, when I
got out, everyone in the restaurant started clapping and cheering.
54. My BF and have I been dating for seven months. We went to
the movies and during it he kissed me. We both have braces and my rubber bands
were in. Somehow my rubber bands got caught in his braces! We couldn't see
anything in the theater and had to end up telling one of the movie theater
people! It was horrible, but we laugh at it now.
55. I was in our apartment building’s elevator, which is
always empty. So I did a handstand against a wall, just to see what it would
feel like. Next thing I knew, the doors opened, and a couple stared in. What
could I say? They just backed away from the elevator slowly.
56. I was in one of those tiny airplane bathrooms and
couldn’t figure out how to lock the door. So I just left it unlocked. As I was
trying to zip my jeans, I accidentally hit the door too hard with my elbow, and
it swung open. I fell out of the bathroom—zipper still unzipped—and to the
floor with an enormous thud. Everyone turned around, and I sat on the ground
laughing like a goofball.
57. There’s a huge fountain at the mall, and I wanted to
throw in a penny for luck. I stood up on the tile around the fountain. As I was
about to toss my coin, SPLASH! I slipped and took a belly flop right into the
water in front of about 25 people. So much for good luck!
58. I was in a hurry getting my book for class, and I
accidentally shut my shoelace in my locker door. I didn’t notice right away,
and when I tried to stand up to walk to class, I fell backward and sent my
59. One afternoon, I had some cute guys over. My baby
sister’s intercom was in the TV room, and she started to cry. I went to comfort
her and sang “My Heart Will Go On” because she loves that song. When I went
back to my friends, they were all laughing and imitating me. I totally forgot
about the intercom.
60. It was my birthday, and my friend and I were going to
watch movies at my house. I hopped in the shower, and since no one was home, I
thought it would be OK to run downstairs and grab a shirt out of the dyer. What
I didn’t know what that my friend was throwing a surprise party for me. Most of
the ninth grade was downstairs. When they flipped the lights on, I was startled
and slipped on the stairs. It gets even worse—my towel fell off!
61. It was my first day at camp and I was trying to make a
good impression. Well, I was taking out the garbage, which was down a set of
stairs, and it had just finished raining so the stairs were wet. I slipped down
the stairs and rolled right off the balcony, five feet to the ground. I was
still clutching the garbage can! Everyone was laughing.
62. OUR FAVE! I was cheerleading at a summer league game,
and I spelled my team’s name wrong. Instead of “J-O-S-E-P-H-S,” I said,
“J-O-E-P-H-S.” The cheer goes, “What’s that spell?” A guy in the crowd yelled,
“I don’t know!”
