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…

I’m not offering a legitimate table to you, sir from facepalm

3. He probably just lost his job because of you.

Are you happy now?

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.

6. Well, that’s not gonna work out.

Also, you have a Hamsters Instagram account?

7. Oh, take it easy.

People need to relax…

8. Now, this sounds like quite a story!

It also needs to be made into a TV movie.

i love wrong number texts from texts

9. Congratulations to the two of you!

That sounds pretty horrible.

10. Just go for the mass scam.

How’d that work out for you?

Scammer tried to scam 20 random people at once from facepalm

11. Ouch…looks like you might have failed.

Can I get a makeup exam?

Yesterday… from Wellthatsucks

12. The best tweet of all time?

It’s definitely up there!
