High school is a rough time. Nobody makes it out unscathed, just ask Dylan Walsh or Zack Morris. Our high school careers leave us with fond memories and life long wounds that often may never heal. It's a mixed bag for many when you bring up the teen years. Memory lane can be tricky road. So let's take a spin together.

Redditor u/BadAllByMyself- wanted everyone to open up about the scars of high school by asking.... What is your most embarrassing moment from high school?

See friends we've all been there.


Drive on or Run....

I accidentally sat in someone else's car after school, thinking it was my mom's car. I even buckled my seatbelt before looking to my right and seeing a baby, and looking to the front and seeing a horrified woman. I apologized quickly and ran out only to see that my mom's car was the one behind it. rughug

Pick One. 

I had to have a lunch date in front of the entire school with a random girl. Two names picked out of a hat. I don't know who's stupid idea it was. Really busted my self confidence, they didn't think of the consequences. Still recovering 10 years later. It was a whack student council idea, they thought it'd be a fun idea. ElusiveFunk

"walk on down."

My teacher called someone to come do a problem on the board. I wasn't listening to who it was and decided to be "funny" and do the gameshow voice saying "walk on down."

The person they called on was one of the few people in the school in a wheelchair -_- inu_yasha

Teacher Love....

I think it was when my friend told my teacher that I spent all year wanting to make love with him. And I only found out a while later, so I was interacting with the teacher normally. AnaMarighella

You're Out!

Ripped my shirt off after our varsity squad won an important basketball game, & threw said shirt into the opposing crowd. This was in a very conservative community close to the Amish. I had to be escorted out of the building. bubbie_bubba

Pickled Pits....

The first day I ever wore underarm deodorant was in grade 9 and I was really self conscious about it.

That afternoon as I sat at my desk I started to smell this strange pungent smell. It started off faint but then it became strong and horrid pretty quickly.

I looked around and nobody else seemed to notice it, so I started to quietly freak out - I thought for sure the deodorant was chemically reacting with my sweat.

Finally the teacher turns around from the chalkboard and says "what is that smell?" Turns out the Home Economics class down the hall were boiling vinegar and making homemade pickles. big_macaroons

Niked....

Not high school but in middle school I told everyone I got signed by Nike. cutchisclutch22

I have an ex-friend that insists that she was being a model for Nike when really, it was just her in knockoff attire having pictures taken by some random guy at the glamorous location of Reedley Beach in California, which isn't even an actual beach. It's a lake in the middle of the desert part of California.

It was very sad. DizzyedUpGirl

Zipped. 

I had a pair or two of pants that would stick out at the zipper making it look like an erection. I didn't notice till my friends friend who hates me said I had a boner for her. It was both funny and embarrassing. After that I was very conscious of pants zippers. Existingispain

All on Eyes on Me...

Classmate pulled my shorts and boxers down in front of the entire year group - boys, girls and teachers - completely exposing penis. Everyone saw. Seeing the teachers laugh was a pretty low point. A few people pointed. Had to just ride with what has happened TractorMan2

Bruh, I bet that wasn't even the worst part. I can imagine the silence and everybody just staring, shocked. BadAllByMyself-

and I have never recovered.....

It was highschool orientation day and these two teachers were talking in front of about 80 kids and made up a little game to make it more exciting, when ever they said the word "hulk" everyone has to jump up and yell "SMASH" it was all good except I felt I wasn't putting my all into it and wasn't yelling loud enough. So I was so focused on getting ready for the next "SMASH" that I mistook the word "whole" as "hulk" and proceeded with all my might to be the only one to jump up and scream "SMASH" at the top of my lungs. The teachers looked at me like I had just killed someone, utter shock. It tainted my whole future and I have never recovered. blondesatanist

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
