As someone who is now in their fourth decade of life, one thing I know for sure is that I am so, so glad that social media didn’t exist when I was in high school or college…because my friends and I did all kinds of stupid sh*t that I know would be causing me embarrassment to this day.
Some things are just better left hidden in the past…
But these folks aren’t so lucky! Their awkward encounters have been blasted across social media for all of us random folks to laugh at. These poor souls…
Let’s see what went down.
1. Way to do your part!
Group projects were always the worst.

2. Let’s talk about this table…
Actually, now you need to start over…
3. He probably just lost his job because of you.
Are you happy now?
My boyfriend just said "HEYYYY" and I yelled "MUST BE THE MONAYYYY" because I did not realize that he had just started a Zoom conference call.

4. Oh…let’s start over, okay?
My name is Presbyterian…

5. Turn around and walk on home.
And never show your face there again.
I once walked into Subway, asked for a "mootball feetlong", said "shit" directly afterward, then walked out.
I can never go back.

6. Well, that’s not gonna work out.
Also, you have a Hamsters Instagram account?
Accidentally just replied to a boy I fancy off my HAMSTERS Instagram account goodnight

People need to relax…

8. Now, this sounds like quite a story!
It also needs to be made into a TV movie.
9. Congratulations to the two of you!
That sounds pretty horrible.
I broke up with my girlfriend at a restaurant and she started crying, everyone thought i had proposed so they started clapping…

10. Just go for the mass scam.
How’d that work out for you?
11. Ouch…looks like you might have failed.
Can I get a makeup exam?
12. The best tweet of all time?
It’s definitely up there!
When my sister in-law was a waitress in Canada, she was taking drink orders from a group of Americans. They each ordered a glass of red wine. She suggested they choose a LITRE instead. They spoke among themselves and one man put up his hand and said – “I’ll be the leader.”
