Repeat after us kids: it is never advisable to get someone’s number without their contest. It is always creepy. No matter what your reasoning is, it is simply wrong.
Yes, even if you think the two of you are 100% soulmates. Most likely, you aren’t and you’re just going to scare them away and be known as the weird kid.
The Wrong Leg
This has happened to every child, at least once. When you are four or five years old, you can't really far up enough to recognize people's faces.
So you go for leg identification, remembering what people's pants and shoes wore. This method isn't bulletproof, and the kiddo found himself just grabbing a stranger's leg, which must have been uncomfortable for all parties involved.
Apologize to Yourself
Mirrors are a tool we use in order to know what we look like, but in this story, the picture the mirror painted wasn't pretty.
Firstly, because walking into a mirror in a clothing store is just never a good look, no matter what you're actually wearing. Secondly, while apologizing to yourself in the mirror is kind, we don't think it was necessary.
Barney the Dinosaur
This is a free country and people should be able to wear whatever they want, in whichever color they choose. Yes, even if each and every kid in the supermarket will think they were cosplaying Barney the Dinosaur. Sadly, the moms and dads of these children will have to be the ones facing the shoppers.
They will have to put on an awkward smile while wanting to burry themselves and never take their kid out in public again.
The Prom Proposal
High school proms are a playground for those of us who enjoy the embracements of others. The glitter, the drama, and the... marriage proposals? Some find public proposals romantic, while others cringe at the sight, even if it all goes according to plan.
Could you imagine the mortification of both the Reddit poster and the person they proposed to, as everyone was watching them, waiting for the answer?
