I Can't Believe I Did That

We all have embarrassing stories, moments of regret, and colossal mess-ups our mind may still be trying to clean up years later. For Six Contest #135, we’re teaming up with our friends at Mortified (creators of a series of live events, books, and now a game you could win!) seeking stories that you can’t believe actually happened to you. Those times in your life you look back on and say, “I can’t believe I did that!”

Maybe you said something you instantly wished you could take back? Did your big romantic gesture get a less-than-enthusiastic response? Did you trip and fall in front of some corporate hotshots? Did you show up over (or under) dressed for a party? Or the classic, did you bend over and rip your pants right down the middle? Whatever way you’ve embarrassed yourself, we want you to bury your shame forever and let your regrets RIP.

If you'd like to share a backstory (we love reading them!), be sure to submit your entry as a Six and include the link to the Backstory here in the comments below. Share as many stories as you like, but do post only one entry per comment. The winner will get a copy of the new game “I Can’t Believe I Did That” from Mortified (https://getmortified.com/shop/game/).
