Although the term “no regrets” sounds like a motivationally smart way to look at life events, there are certain situations that many of us would prefer to undo. A terrible tattoo doesn’t come with an eraser and that personal text sent to the wrong person might be detrimental.
Thanks to everyone subject to human error, some accidents are unavoidable even when you’re the one controlling the situation. So when “what was a cringy thing you did in the past that still keeps you up at night?” was asked on Reddit, one particular response won over the conversation thread. It’s the ultimate, I wish I could take it back moment that you’ll relate to because you’ve either done this before or fear doing this in the future.
Subs_only’s cringeworthy moment start like so:
During my alcohol phase I went on Facebook to search for and pore over pictures of my crush. When I woke up in the morning, I realized that I had actually created an event with her name as the title.
When someone asked how it was handled, he further explained:
I believe the event was set as public. The name I put was a short version of her first name, but everyone knew. We’ve never spoken since, and the last time I saw her on the street I hid.
Ah, how awkward. Some responded by sharing similar stories.
This made me blush! I did something similar, made a Facebook status of an exes name. I woke up the next day and my blood ran cold… I had no recollection of even attempting to drunkenly torture myself by looking at them. I deactivated my Facebook. – Greenskyatnight
Multiple times I have gone to search someones name and realized I almost created a status of their name. Would have been pretty awkward. – bro_mo_sapien
I feel your pain. Thought I was searching for a high school crush on classmates.com. Ended up accidentally making a profile with his name instead. And I was sober! – milf__wannabe
Others reacted in hilariously honest ways:
You poor poor fucking soul. I can’t imagine this happening to me. I can’t imagine school after that… god, so unlucky…. – rot1nom
I’ve been crying all morning and this actually made me laugh. Thank you. Sorry for laughing at you. Lol. – LuckyToaster
My stomach convulsed when I read this. – rieoskddgka
Thank you, Subs_only, for sharing your embarrassing social media fail. It’s definitely giving the rest of us laughs.
