10 Most Embarrassing Situations and How to Tackle Them
There are a million possibilities in terms of the embarrassing situations you might find yourself in from time to time. But here are some that are the most likely to happen and how you can get out of them without turning red.
1. Being at the receiving end of a joke
It is not a very pleasant situation being at the receiving end of a joke. But still, never make the mistake of losing your temper or try to avidly defend yourself as it will only encourage the other person to assume you to be a soft target for the future. Rather, just laugh with the crowd and retort with a funny remark.
2. Making a joke that falls flat
Make sure that others did find your joke funny before tumbling on the ground yourself and then realize that everyone is staring at you in bewilderment. But most importantly, don’t let this one situation destroy your day. Just think of something funnier next time or else just keep quiet.
3. Falling down in front of people
This can be especially embarrassing for women as the guys can just get up and dust off their pants before vanishing into thin air. The key to dealing with this situation is to pull yourself together after the ordeal. Don’t just sit there flabbergasted or start weeping out of embarrassment. Rather, get up and continue with your job as if nothing happened.
4. Having a wardrobe malfunction
If there is anything more embarrassing than tripping over, it is having a wardrobe malfunction. Your plight may not be viewed by a million perverts unlike a celeb, but it still is a pretty embarrassing situation to get into. The more bravely you get out of it, the better. You can’t change what has happened, so stop making a big deal about it.
5. Having your mistake pointed out
No one likes to admit their own mistake. But when you have your mistake pointed out while in the company of other people, admit it and move on instead of acting stubborn and fighting with the other person.
