There's nothing quite like witnessing a public meltdown.
A recent Reddit thread asked people to recall the times they saw someone react to a situation in a totally over-the-top way. The responses won't make you miss public interaction.
Today I was stuck in an elevator for 20 mins. The woman I was in the elevator with started screaming loudly and holding onto the walls. [...] Everyone else in the elevator made their ways towards the call/alarm button. She held onto the walls, falling to the floor and screaming, "Lord, this is NOT happening. We're gonna die. Someone call 911!" Later, I saw her in the store buying towels. - HootingAngie
I was on a roller coaster, The Georgia Scorcher, and it stopped at the top on the hill for about 10 minutes. A woman behind me started freaking out, saying we were all going to starve to death and die from heat stroke. - tlf988
