In life, you don’t always get what you want but something that you run away from is hurled at you in abundance. Don’t want problems? You’ll have plenty. Don’t want anxiety? It just won’t leave you alone. And just one these things we run away from is embarrassing moments.
* If I had a dollar for every time I felt embarrassed in front of my friends or make them feel embarrassed , I’d be so rich. * Do you feel this?
Here are 10 embarrassing moments we’ve had with our chuddy-buddies.
1.EXPOSING THEM TO FULL FLEDGED FAMILY DRAMA
No family is perfect and we all have our fights and arguments but we try our best to look like a perfect family in front of others. However, friends don’t really count in this category, do they? It is beyond my comprehension that why hell breaks loose the very day you invite your friend to hangout at your place, or to finish an assignment. And, why does my mother decide to showcase my not-so-cute infant photo album to my friends and then crib about how I don’t eat green veggies. I am so sure, WE ALL have had these embarrassing moments several times in our lives!
2.WHEN YOUR PARENTS ARE TOO STRICT
Has it so happened that you had to cancel a plan with your friends because your parents were too strict to permit you to do a certain thing? Cancelled Goa plans, college trips, and night outs just because your parents didn’t feel it was right? It’s one of the most embarrassing moments to turn down a plan saying that “guys, my father said no.” and all your other friends don’t have to ask for permission rather they just tell their parents about their plan. * RIP all plans you cancelled because it was ‘too cool’ for your parents. *
3.CRUSHING ON THEIR SIBLINGS
Crushes are never easy to deal with and the task becomes ten times tougher when it’s your friend’s sibling that you have a crush on. Here the confessing to your crush is easy but confiding your feelings in your friend is the difficult part. Apart from the embarrassment of telling that you find their sibling is quite appealing , there is always a fear of being rejected by your friend. What if your friend isn’t ready to transform your ‘dosti’ into ‘rishtedari’.

4.BORROWING ALL THEIR STUFF FOR A DATE
Statistically speaking, the three components of a perfect date are you, your tinder match, and your best friend’s wardrobe. Don’t you always borrow the first- date perfect outfit from your best friend and also her purse , footwear, make up, curling iron etc. The list could go on. And if you’re a guy, you’ll run around asking for a clean, ironed shirt and questions regarding you should go for a clean shave look or that beard you’ve been grooming. Moreover, this leads to more embarrassing moments when you forget to return their stuff or even worse – lose it.
5.TOO MUCH PDA
Too much hugging? Couple like poses? Trust me, you aren’t good enough friends if you don’t send out the couple vibe to other people, and people surrounding you don’t wonder whether you are a couple or not. You might laugh away people’s doubt but deep inside, it is a little embarrassing to be considered a couple when you are not. And it is even more embarrassing if your friend is of gender as you and you both are straight. Are you even friends if you haven’t had these kind of embarrassing moments?
6.ACTING CRAZY WHEN THEIR CRUSH IS AROUND
Your friend’s crush is a god sent present that allows you pull your friend’s leg. It’s completely legitimate on your part to play the unsolicited cupid and never shut up about your friend in front of his/her crush. You have the right to narrate all the funny anecdotes, show ugly snaps, tell the weirdest thing they do and embarrass the hell out of your friend. Don’t be too astounded when your friend does the same. *wink*
7.TRIPPING IN THE 6 INCH HEELS
Only you know how much you wanted those 6 inch heels to be the fashionista that you aren’t. No matter how much your friend was against buying something you couldn’t carry, you bought them anyway. Now the whole universe will conspire that you stumble right in front of your friend without even walking a meter. And that I-told-you-already smug look on your friend’s face is a sight worth beholding.
8.BEING KICKED OUT OF A RESTAURANT
Catching up with a friend after a long time? Of course, you’ll have so much to talk about and reminisce. More than often, you and your friend end up being too noisy without noticing the inconvenience you are causing other people in the restaurant or café. You both just keep laughing hysterically. If you are lucky enough, the waiter or manager will politely ask you to calm down. If not, you will be kicked out of the restaurant with a fat bill and no food. And, years later, you will laugh again when you remember this incident. It is an infinite loop of embarrassing moments.
9.YOU’RE DRUNK AND SERIES OF EMBARRASSING MOMENTS FOLLOW!
Do you know what happens when a teetotaler drinks for the first time? DISASTER. Your friend secretly curses the moment he agreed to accompany you for your first drink. He was totally unaware of what you could do in a drunken state and how hard would it be to handle you. Its furthermore embarrassing to watch your drunk dance video on your friend’s instagram feed when you are sober. Were you really drunk or did you and your friend decide to roleplay Naina , Rahul and Aman from the movie Kal Ho Na Ho? The worst part is, this act of yours results in a chain of embarrassing moments and you become a laughing stock for life!
10.LIKING THE SAME PERSON
Friends are likely to have the same taste in life. But it is an embarrassing enough to fall for the same person, at the same time. And the sweet part? You both are ready to give up that person for each other. No drama, no fight, pure sacrifice. Friends are angels. Aren’t they?
11. When your friends click an ugly candid of yours!
Admit it: the gallery of our friends is always filled with all kinds of ugly pictures of ours! This is not only of the most embarrassing moments, but also an opportunity for your friends to blackmail for life! Sometimes it feels that your friends possess a cellphone only and only so that they can click weird picture of yours. And then comes your birthday: a day where people post all kind of ugly photos of yours in social media. Nothing ruins birthdays more than these pics. While I’m writing this, I actually wonder: shouldn’t this be at the top of all embarrassing moments?
Such events might be some of the most embarrassing moments and too cringe worthy, but this is what makes your friendship stronger than the bond of fevicol, doesn’t it? Cherish these embarrassing moments when you can rather than worrying about what one might think of you! After all what is life without a few ( I mean, a lot of) embarrassing moments. Because no matter how old we get, these embarrassing moments just don’t stop following us!
