The best thing about secondhand embarrassment is that it's secondhand.
People shared the most humiliating moments they ever had the misfortune (or privilege) of witnessing, and you'll be grateful you don't have the balls to ever propose in public.
Most of them stores are funny, like the kind of stories you'd read in the back pages of a 2000s-era teen magazine. The ones about periods, however, are straight up traumatizing.
Warning for genitals, bodily fluids, and rejected proposals.
My Junior year in college, i was taking a Demographics class. About 100 students in a lecture hall. The teach used a wireless clip-on mic. One day, she gives us an assignment and leaves the room. She left her mic on by accident. The next 5 minutes, 100 students listened to the sounds of our 60 year old, female teacher taking the most massive, loud dump in the history of mankind. It was piping through the speakers at full volume. Every single student was in one of those full 'i'm crying i'm laughing so hard' uncontrollable fits. The sounds that came out of that woman were ungodly. -fah_cue
