  1. an involuntary spasm of the diaphragm and respiratory organs, with a sudden closure of the glottis and a characteristic gulping sound.
Or in other words: Hell!
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 fewโ€ฆ

1- Ramadan

Because. You. Canโ€™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..


4- Funerals

May your dignity rest in peace ๐Ÿ™‚


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.


7- Interviews

Itโ€™s one thing if youโ€™re the interviewee. Itโ€™s a completely other thing if youโ€™re the interviewer. Chances are they wonโ€™t take you seriously anymore.


8- While meeting your significant otherโ€™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…


10- Singing/performing

Apparently, some people say that there is no such thing as public embarrassment. I’ll let you decide.


Those are just a few since the list goes on. Maybe there will be a part twoโ€ฆ
