Survey: 10 Most Embarrassing Social Situations

We Suspect Jason Hammer Has Committed All 10 with Tremendous Pride

Ever had one of those embarrassing moments in a social situation that was so humiliating that suicide felt like the most logical next step to take?

Maybe you released a noxious squeaker on a first date? 

Perhaps you floated an air biscuit during the most solemn moment of Grandma's funeral?

Perchance you performed an ear-ringing trouser cough while Pastor Pete was mid-prayer?

Publicly passing gas was just one of many charmingly shameful moments of mortification that were presented on a survey intended to discover respondents' top 10 Most Embarrassing Social Situations:

  1. Coughing in a quiet place.  52% of people in the poll said it’s embarrassing.
  2. Saying something stupid in front of your boss, 43%.
  3. Forgetting someone’s name, 40%
  4. Passing gas in public, 37%.  (Only 37% think that’s embarrassing?)
  5. Falling asleep in public, also 37%.
  6. Having the hiccups in a work meeting, 36%.
  7. Tripping in public, 36%.
  8.  Your significant other having a temper tantrum in public, 34%.
  9. Your child having a temper tantrum in public, also 34%.
  10.  Public speaking, 32%.

How can coughing in a quiet space be considered more humiliating than passing gas in public? I question the accuracy of this survey.
