Here are 10 of the very best, that might make you feel better about the cringe-worthy things that you’ve done.
1. We’ve all been there.
Said 'thank you' to a cash machine with a queue of people behind me https://t.co/ZiGig18djd— pullovergirl (@pullovergirl) June 30, 2018
2. This unfortunate mistake.
Asked two women I was serving in a shop if they were mother and daughter only to be told they were married. https://t.co/ERy02C0IL2— Melanie de Smith (@melaniedesmith) June 29, 2018
3. At least this embarrassing moment turned out well in the end.
First proper job interview. Got asked ‘how’s your grammar?’ With a confused face, I answered ‘she’s fine’... Still got the job.— Eliza Doodle 🥪👍 (@IwasGobby) June 30, 2018
4. Oh no!
It's a long list. The answer is probably that I can't grow up and stop adding to it!— Steve, just Steve (@Northern_Steve) June 29, 2018
Sitting outside a bar in Edinburgh and falling asleep at an empty table. When I woke up it had six other people using it. That still haunts me a bit.
5. This forgetful person.
At some work event once I said to someone “You look really familiar somehow. Have we ever met before?” and they said “Yes. Over there, about an hour ago.” 😖🔫 https://t.co/N2JH2lSdir— Red Sky At Night (@redskyatnight) June 30, 2018
6. This person is haunted by their mistake.
7. Uber drivers are like family to this person.
Took an uber to the airport and when the guy got out to get my luggage I forgot he wasn't my family and went in for a hug https://t.co/MY8M91eFV6— Mary (@lipetz_mary) July 3, 2018
8. This unfortunate compliment.
A friend of mine came to my wedding in a dress that she'd spent a fortune on. I meant to say to her "where did you get that dress?" but for some reason I said "what've you come as?".— Matt Taylor (@johnny_columbia) June 29, 2018
9. No, no, no.
Distracted while on the phone to a guy from IT, I decided to google his name to see what he looked like. Completely forgetting I’d shared my screen with him... https://t.co/yOEzsmoeQ1— Katie Stanton (@stantonkr) July 2, 2018
10. Lastly, this mistaken greeting.
Shouted "I love you" rather than "goodbye" to the lady at the till in Tesco. https://t.co/hcBnnxJaA1— GogynyDe (@gogynyde) July 2, 2018
