Unfortunately, no matter how smooth and thoughtful we are, we're going to end up saying something that embarrasses us.
Whether it's something we should've saved for another person or something we should've just kept to ourselves, it only takes one look at the other person's reaction to realize that we seriously messed up.
But if there's any good part about this unfortunate fact of life, it's that it happens to enough of us that we can all understand how it feels. So any time we embarrass ourselves, it can help to remember that the people who saw us have likely done something just as humiliating in their own lives.
And if that still doesn't keep what you said from haunting you seven years later while you're trying to sleep, compare it to these unfortunate slip-ups.
