We all have a few of those embarrassing stories that keep us up at night. And so, so many of them happen at school.
A recent Reddit thread asked people to share the cringiest things they ever did as a kid at school. The results are painfully relatable.
Did a stand-up comedy routine at the elementary school talent show that was just me retelling an entire Pinky and the Brain episode. The only things I remember were me awkwardly stopping to remember parts of it, doing a lot of that "and, um, and then" that kids do when they're trying to tell a story, and the noticeably fake laughter from the faculty. - HerptyDerpty
Leaned too far forward in my desk and tipped it over. It was the kind where the chair is attached to the desk so I actually got stuck in it. Everyone in the classroom watched as my TA had to run over and tip the desk back upright with me still in it. It was pretty embarrassing and the worst part was when I tried to make a joke about it afterwards, nobody laughed. - naanbud
