Some people just have that ability to turn an embarassing situation into something amusing. Everyone laughs, and then they move on and forget about it. Some people even play it off so well that it seems that they're never embarassed by anything.

Others, like myself, don't know what to do in such situations, and sometimes end up being haunted by memories of those moments for a long time.

What about you, Pit?

You need to say something witty and funny,or make something else the centre of attention.

Yeah, but they'll be all like, "Stop trying to draw the attention away from the fact that you sucked off a horse" or something.

Not that I've sucked off any horses recently.

Then you ignore what they say and continue bringing up other stuff.

Very badly. Although I think of some fucking zingers several weeks later, and mouth them in front of the mirror to try and stave off the endless cringing.

If it's something like:
"yea, one time I jacked off my dog and ate his cum"
"*awkward silence*",
Then I just say something like: "yea, I'm protein deficient", or "haven't you ever done that?", or "it's a delicacy in Asia".
Just crack a joke, even a bad one, and people will remember the bad joke, not the embarassing moment. Just pretend to be confident, and people will think you are. If you don't act like it's embarassing, it's not.

It's because you make a big deal out of it instead of realizing that everyone screws up and looks dumb sometimes. The reason people are able to laugh about it and move on, and the reason that the others around them are able to do the same, is because they realize it's part of life and let it go.

the other day (im taking a class to learn chinese) and the teacher was explaining how in chinese the idea and the word "when" does not exsist. he went on to write an example on the board : Yesterday, i went to the store
I raised my hand so matter-of-factly and said "But isnt WENT and form of WHEN?"
he looked at me like i was a complete idiot and said "no its a form of GO"
everyone laughed

But anyway I usually just start laughing. Works every time

This lol.

I rehearse a good response for future similar situations only to fail miserably like I always do.

I don't have much shame, so it's pretty easy for me to play things off.

The one thing I have not been able to come up with a solution for is accidentally farting in front of my girlfriend. It's not like anyone else is there to crack a joke or take the spotlight (shitlight.) off of me. It's probably my least favorite situation ever.
#27
Its called not giving a shit. It always makes you look cool. Well you have to know when to use it.

I can deal with it fine in the situation, and play it off like I'm not all that bothered. I relive those moments like hell later on though. It takes only a few seconds to have my brain throw dozens of past 'awkward' moments at me, which often results in a loss of sleep. Which funnily probably leads me to be slightly tired during social interactions, causing further embarassment.

I have no issue playing off embarassing isssues, because I'm rarely embarassed by the things I do. For example, everyone and his brother knows that I had an erection in a bed which also contained two other guys. Do I care? not particularly. I laughed when Steve yelled "BONER!!!" and dove out of the bed, and that whole floor of the hotel heard.

Pretty well most of the time.

I'm a ****ing expert at playing off embarrassing situations, so much so that I don't even realize that a situation could've been embarrassing until after I've already resolved it.

Most of the time, anyways...

Well, a few few years ago, I can remember I was with my parents and few of my friends and their parents having dinner at some shitty restaurant. My mother was commenting out loud how I was the only one of my brothers that was not a pretentious mother ****er, resuming all that into he "doesn't bark" and treating me like a 5 year old. Everyone was silent. I was embarassed that the only thing I could so was bark. And I "barked" as if I were a dog. Everyone laughed and soon the event was forgotten.

That was 8 years ago, and I have never got away from a situation like that ever since. It's just a reminder on how much I fail at life. Oh, me!
