Every human being can agree that getting a hiccup is the worst and most annoying feeling; its timing is never convenient either. But sometimes, it occurs in a situation where it is too annoying and/or even too inappropriate to bear. Here are a few…
Because. You. Can’t . Fricking. Drink. Water.
2- Meetings/exams/speeches etc.
The awkwardness of the situation..
3- Silent moments in general
Aaaand, hiccups do break the silence..
May your dignity rest in peace 🙂
5- While praying
It’s not much of a problem if you’re praying alone. But when you’re in the mosque or church, you’re just as annoying as the little kid that won’t stop crying.
6- Holding/carrying something heavy and/or easily breakable
I have two words for you: You’re screwed.
It’s one thing if you’re the interviewee. It’s a completely other thing if you’re the interviewer. Chances are they won’t take you seriously anymore.
8- While meeting your significant other’s parents and family
Don’t worry. Now that they dislike you, you don’t have to go to their boring family gatherings (jokes aside, those are the worst).
9- While calling any restaurant for delivery
You will probably get a big mac beef and not chicken. Sorry mate…
Apparently, some people say that there is no such thing as public embarrassment. I’ll let you decide.
