People's Small Recurring Cringey Memories That Keep Them Up at Night

There's probably something in your life that you regret doing. Not even something big. You might regret some small detail or behavior that you don't even do anymore. That's exactly the kind of thing a lot of us tend to remember when we're laying in bed in the dark, trying to sleep. It might have been an awkward date, or something that happened in 8th grade. Out of the darkness you just remember "Oh crap remember that time I farted in gym and that girl started to throw up?"

    Text - alexgvincent 7.5k points 7 hours ago edited 4 hours ago When I was 11, it was my first day at a new school and all the other students were also new. The Maths teacher started our first class by asking each of us about our education background (what school we came from, what they taught in our last year's Maths class etc.), just trying to get a general idea of what kind of students he was dealing with. Thing is, I was so nervous that I spaced out for a bit and got lost in my overthinking m

    Text - 20XD6_1936 6.5k points 7 hours agoS I accidentally mixed up an inside joke with the wrong friend group with disastrous results. Friend group #1: The "joke" was when someone calls and asks who's all there we would add Darrell to the list of names. Darrell wasn't a real person. The joke wasn't really funny, and made no sense out of context, but I guess that's why it was an inside joke. Friend group #2: I was hanging out playing some drinking games with a bunch of people that I hadn't hung o

    Text - RealisticYogurt6 6.2k points 7 hours ago .edited 4 hours ago S Bruh I can't even begin to pinpoint one event. I guess one thing is when I was 11, I asked my teacher if I could go to the bathroom three times during class and told me no. And well, sure enough, I couldn't hold it any longer and there's bullying for the next six months. Literally shakes me in bed about how I have never felt that low before. SOMEHOW I managed to live through it though lol. We all got flaws. Mine is a bladder t

    Text - AHHaSpider 1.6k points 7 hours ago .edited 29 minutes ago In 7th grade (06 for me) I had just started watching more anime on toonami and was really into it. One day we had to do a paper describing ourselves coming back from summer break and the class had to put a person to a description I named my favorite jacket that I wore every day "Takeshi" for fuck knows why, and the cutest new girl in the class read my description out loud and in it I described the love for my jacket and how I had n

    Text - unloadedboar 1.6k points 7 hours ago I was in fifth grade or so and I was sitting in class with a couple classmates. We were talking about Weird Al songs we liked. This one girl asked, "Have you heard (some Weird Al song)?" and I followed with, "Have you ever heard I'm So Sick of You?" Which I guess they hadn't heard because she looked immediately down at the desk, sort of somber, and the dude did a little," hohooo" as if I did a nice burn. I guess they thought I was telling this girl I w

    Text - precious3tears 8.9k points 8 hours ago When I was in fifth grade, our teacher said a joke in front of the class and everyone laughed including myself. After the laughter died down, a girl looked up at me and said. "You have a really damn disgusting laugh, ew." I became so self conscious about laughter since that specific, day, and after years I have trouble actually laughing. My brain kinda made it a habit to just smile or slightly chuckle at something, even if it is really funny.

    Text - LoveCatPics 1.4k points 7 hours ago When I was 6, my teacher asked us what's our parents' occupation, I said my mum does the dishes, and after 5 minutes of explaining what she does at home, my teacher just took it as my mum is a housewife. My mum is a chemistry teacher, and I told her that I said that when i was 12. You really can't blame me, I didn't really think about where my mum went during her work hours, I just knew she went somewhere, and just kept playing with my toy cars which I

    Text - 1.2k points 7 hours ago fireballginger In 8th grade I farted once, and a few minutes later, someone smelled it and asked who did it. They asked if it was me and I just started crying. I used to be very sensitive and so I thought they were accusing me and felt really bad, so I cried It's partially because of that that I am much less emotional, and tend to keep them bottled up

    Text - anonusername27 301 points 6 hours ago I was in the fourth grade and it was Valentine's Day, I was the new kid in school and this one boy had been picking on me all year. My 10 year old self was very non confrontational so I wrote a paragraph on the back of his nerds valentine explaining that I don't like it when he's mean to me, and I don't understand why he has to be. He couldn't read my handwriting and brought it to the teacher who made me read it aloud to both of them. II think about t

    Text - spaztasticnerd 3.7k points 7 hours ago Freshman year of high school. It was one of those days before school starts and you meet your teacher and your parents are there. My teacher was handing me a piece of paper and I didn't see the paper so I shook his hand. He said "oh" and my mom said "Ummm?" and I panicked and said "I just wanted to be polite!" So I still want to die when I think of that...
