Getting chased by geese or farm animals.

Mistaken Identity

[rebelmouse-image 18356822 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

When kids mistakenly embrace a stranger thinking it's their parent. As a child this is terrifying, as an adult, it's adorable and hilarious.

Failing at parallel parking with a crowd of onloookers.


[rebelmouse-image 18356826 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I Know!

[rebelmouse-image 18356827 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Smugly and confidently shouting the wrong answer in class.


[rebelmouse-image 18356828 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My knee dislocated in a public toilet yesterday and I was sitting on the floor with my arse out on the cold tile floor and about 15 people around me while waiting for an ambulance.

Aerial Attack

Present Company Excepted

[rebelmouse-image 18346341 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Unintentionally insulting someone. The other day I was complaining about someone I don't like.

Friend : "Oh! It turns out I'm related to her. Her dad is an a-hole too."

Me : "Ahhh so it runs in the family!" cringe "Oh.. I wasn't referring to you!"

[rebelmouse-image 18356834 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I got a call from my First Sergeant once while doing medical coverage at a crew served weapons range... Definitely said I love you as I was about to hang up. What I didn't know was that he was using me as an example of a soldier ready to be promoted to Sergeant in a NCOPD. (noncommisioned officer professional development breifing) I was on speaker to every NCO in my unit. And the Sergeant Major who had stopped in to offer some guidance.

I went from being Doc, to being Cupid.

Meant to do That

[rebelmouse-image 18356835 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Watching someone almost trip then do the half jog to walk it off casually.

Regrets? I Have a Few

[rebelmouse-image 18356837 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Telling embarrassing things while being drunk. Bonus points if you don't remember anything you said the next day.

And then they slowly come back to you in agonising drips throughout the day until you're curled up in a permanent cringe at the sheer awfulness.

And then a week later when you open a beer to relax, you start to think about the embarrassing stuff again. And then you're sitting there (with) a bottle of shame in your hands.

That's a Different Kind of Court

[rebelmouse-image 18356838 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Calling the judge "Your majesty."

People do this?

You generally refer to them as your honor but some people get confused.

[rebelmouse-image 18356842 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I once answered in the wrong language and my massive brainfart didn't allow me to understand that what I was listening to was French so I kept answering all their questions and replying to their comments in German. Solid five minutes of "What is going on?"

This happened to me abroad. A professor in Japan asked me a question in Japanese and I answered in Spanish. This son-of-a-b*tch replied back in Spanish.

You should've kept changing languages until one of you broke.

Last Laugh

[rebelmouse-image 18356852 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My girlfriend got soaked when a car drove through a puddle on the way to work this morning. It was hilarious, I laughed and laughed..... then she made a joke about how at least someone made her wet.....

Then I cried on the inside a little


[rebelmouse-image 18356854 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Someone getting scared. I scared the sh*t out of my SO when I got home from work a few months ago. Saw the TV on when I was heading up the stairs so I figured he was still up. I heard him turning the TV off right when I was at the top of the stairs so it was dark in our bedroom.

I jumped through the doorway and yelled, "Boo!" in my high pitched little girl voice. He shrieked at the top of his lungs , like I could hear genuine fear in his voice. I really didn't expect him to get that scared, he said he was falling asleep as I got home and that's why he didn't hear me when I opened the garage door and bounded up the stairs.

I can't help but laugh every time I think about it. Like a full on deep belly laugh. But I swear if he ever did that to me I'd be pissed for weeks.

Ice, Ice Baby

[rebelmouse-image 18356856 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Falling/slipping on ice.

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.

The worst part of having breasts is Florida.

I didn't even say large breasts. Just breasts, any breasts. Florida and breasts are mortal enemies sworn to battle one another into oblivion until the end of days.
