Being alive is a slow motion parade of humiliation, but some embarrassing moments stain out memories more than others.
Some embarrassing stories are so cringe-inducing we have to let them cool off for months, even years, before we're able to regale them without weeping or puking out of sheer humiliation.
Luckily, the most painful and cringe-inducing embarrassing stories eventually become the happy hour staples, the best anecdotes to make a room of people laugh (or currently, a Zoom room of people laugh).
In a popular Reddit thread, people jumped on to share their most embarrassing stories, and you should be warned many of these are graphic.
When I was 13 a doctor wrote me an adult dose for a certain medicine based on my weight. I was a fat kid. Our body does not work that way and the medicine ended up constipating me...for a month. I did not sh*t for a whole month. I got sick. I had racoon-like eyes, my stomach would jump or flutter by itself, I had cramps, etc. It was bad. I was miserable.
