It's one of those record scratch "how did I get here" moments that no one wants to find themselves in. This poor dude found himself hanging from a ski lift, to be caught in the waiting net of ski patrol, with plenty of inconvenienced strangers waiting for him to fall. At least it wasn't that high up.

People's Most Embarrassing Office Christmas Parties

Office Christmas parties have a tendency to spiral out of control quickly. It could be all the aggressive enthusiasm and nerves that are already engrained into the holiday season, or people just letting themselves go a bit too much in honor the season. But alas, sometimes people manage to keep it together and actually have a genuinely, reasonably mannered good time. It's rare, but it can happen.

"And Everyone Clapped" Stories

Sometimes strange things happen that just plain old defy people's expectations, and the result is a steady round of applause. These stories might just put a grin on your face, and make you feel better about any moments you've had where you did something silly, and everyone around you proceeded to clap about it. I mean, hey, just take the applause and roll with it.

Stupid Ways People Injured Themselves

Probably the only good thing about getting injured is that it gives you a cool story to tell about how you tried to do a back flip or you punched through a cinder block. But too often injuries come from jarringly mundane, stupid and dull tasks then you're only embarrassed to admit. People have some real dumb and embarrassing freak injuries.

There's not much more to say, it is what it is. We don't envy whoever had to use that intercom after he did, but damn that was resonant.

The Time a Student Got Their Professor's Name Incredibly Wrong

Back in school, many of us were tempted to write a goofy fake name or have a bunch of stupid place holding statements in essays like "Dumb evidence goes here god dammit." More times than we'd like to admit, we remembered and deleted them moments before turning in said essay. This time a student actually turned it in, tried to save themselves with an apology, and the professor had a sense of humor about it. It's not too far-fetched, teachers have to deal with dumb essays all the time.

Embarrassingly Basic Stuff Adults Didn't Know

Every responsible adult has to learn some really basic, extremely necessary information to help them through life. It can range from paying your bills to how to cook and egg to knowing that metal doesn't go in the microwave. Sure, there are plenty of factors people didn't anticipate about adulthood, but sometimes people learn basic things embarrassingly too late in life.

Soldier's Microwave Mishap Creates Chaos

Man oh man, sometimes the brain takes a lunch break, and a true fail presents itself. Take for instance, this soldier who microwaved a can of Chef Boyardee (with the lid on), on an active military base. Naturally, the resulting mess created a nice eruption of chaos, given the environment.

Mom Goes Grocery Shopping, Doesn't Understand Scale

Words fall short. Sometimes, we enter into the world and through our series of attempts, a historical fail arises. In this case, it looks like mom got a bit confused when it came to figuring out how scales work. She was convinced that grams weren't being accounted for in that scale. Thankfully, she had someone close to her who was able to provide clarity for the situation.
