So, when a Reddit user asked, 'What's your most embarrassing 'I thought I was alone' moment?' people were ready to share the time they were caught dancing like nobody was watching. Everyone improvises full-length musicals and belts them out loud while they're folding the laundry, right?
I was rapping some Beastie Boys and feeling like a bada*s, until I hear from the bathroom 'Hey Mike D. Grab me some toilet paper.' Apparently my dad came home without me knowing. Took a while to live that one down. - BrobiWan444
J*rking it to 'that' scene in Titanic when I was about 14. Older brother walks in, 'Oh... um...good scene, isn't it?'- eddie2911
Realized that my building had security cams in the elevators after two years living there. And that concierge team actually watches them. And the poor bastards have been subjected to my riding solo dance parties for months. Christ. - [deleted]
Singing 'A Whole New World' in the shower... Both the guy and girl part. I haven't lived it down yet. - fireye66
I had just taken a shower and had gotten out when my dog came in and started running around wanting to play. I ended up chasing him out of the bathroom while nude and he lead my right to my sister, who had stayed home sick.Needless to say she was curious why I was chasing our dog around while naked. - [deleted]
I was at an IHOP with some friends and had received a serious wedgie upon sliding into my booth. The longer I sat there the worst it got so by the time we finished eating I was ready to fix the problem so I stepped out the front door and stepped around the side wall of the little entry way to pick it, and since no one was driving through the parking lot I figured I was safe but didn't want anyone sneaking up so I kept my back to the wall.
I was digging, hand down the back of my pants, yanking out the offending cloth when one of my friends walked around the corner and immediately started laughing at me and pointing. It took me a second to figure out she wasn't laughing at me but the poor family having breakfast behind the plate glass window that was looking at me in horror. In fact, the whole front of the restaurant is like a giant window... - [deleted]
I was cleaning off the deck outside and found my kids' toy pistols. I picked them up and, feeling silly, pretended I was Lara Croft by posing with them all willy nilly. A minute later I turned around and there was my husband staring at me through the door with a WTF look on his face. The sad thing is I've been caught doing this more than once. - waywardkitty
My parents hired someone to fix the master bathroom(my bathroom). Not knowing this, I put my headphones in and started practicing my dance routines for school. Some of the moves were really crazy. I finish my first routine and the guy was standing at my door just laughing. I was pretty embarrassed. - [deleted]
I tried kissing Leonardo DiCaprio on the tv screen when I was younger. Didn't realize my brother had walked down the stairs - [deleted]
I was doing this self-help whackadoo hypnosis thing to lose weight and part of it involved reciting affirmations to yourself ('I am strong. I can be thin.' etc). I was in the men's room at my office, which had separate areas for the sinks and stalls/urinals, in front of the mirror doin' my thing, for several minutes, when suddenly there was a flush and my coworker walked out looking kind of sheepish. He walked out without acknowledging me and we never spoke of it. - BobDucca
My wife and I were having sex and my best friend called. It was right when I first got a smart phone, so I wasn't 100% on how to reject calls. Well I didn't hit the right button, we continued having sex for at least a few minutes before I heard my buddy's voice say 'are you guys having sex?' We stared at each other and burst out laughing because it was right in the middle of dirty talk. - Bigsaskatuna
I talk to myself when I'm alone. All the time, anywhere I happen to be alone. This includes when I'm working. So one time I'm stocking candy at work, and I just bust out singing, 'YOOOOUUUUUUUU LIIIGHT UP MYYY LIIIIIIIFE...' and I turn around and there's this poor customer looking at me trying not to laugh. I felt myself turn bright red, but I laughed awkwardly and said, 'Sorry...' He says, 'Naw man, it's alright. I do it too.' - McCyanide
Pretending to be a raptor in the hallway at work. Hard to play that one off. - [deleted]
I had just finished watching avatar the last airbender, the whole series one summer and was cleaning the house when the head of my broom fell off. Naturally, it resembling a staff I went to my backyard and began to spin it around and play with a 'staff' for a bit. Around 5 minutes went by and I look up and notice my neighbor watching from his window. I was 20 at the time. - klavierjerke
A couple of days ago. My roommate has a cat, it greets me every time I come in. So like a lunatic I have a conversation with it.
Me: Hey kitty
Me: How was your day kitty
Me: Meow Meow Meow
Didn't realize her boyfriend was in her room, staring at me through the crack of the door. I'm also a 6'4, quiet brown man. - christiandb
When I use to deliver the paper in the mornings there was a dog who would always growl at me and it scared me every single morning. I then came to the conclusion that I needed to establish authority so one morning I saw the dog and as soon as it started growling I snapped my fingers and said something along the lines of, 'you better shut the f*ck up before I smack you with this newspaper.'
I hadn't seen the owner sitting on the porch sipping her coffee. She looked at me shocked, I had always been a sweet 13 year old boy when I went over to do my collections every week. And there we locked eyes and I tried whisperimg a sorry, but I just walked away really embarrassed. - [deleted]
I was staying at a nice hotel (the Empire in Llandudno, North Wales)while travelling for work. They had a great pool. I went in there one morning and I was the only one there. I started messing about, recreating the opening scene of Jaws where the girl realizes that her leg has been bitten off, then lots of splashing like the shark had come back for the second go.
Then I tried a bit of synchro, kicking my legs up in various shapes. Then I did a bit of goalkeeper practice by throwing my goggles and diving to catch them. Then I saw a window overlooking the pool and a family of 6 people eating breakfast and watching me. I'm a 51 year old man. - nigelwyn
