Well, sometimes people end up saying mortifying things that should have either been left unsaid or said in their minds.

Below you will find people who reveal the most mortifying things that they, unfortunately, said out loud.

1. We’ve all been caught in the rain without an umbrella. Whether it was forgotten, or the weather decided to turn a good day into a bad day. This one person was listening to a classmate complain about how soaking wet she was. Their response was “Oh don’t act like this is the first time you’ve ever been wet around me.” (Hardtopickaname)

2. When it comes to complimenting women, sometimes what we think is the right thing to say, can actually be the wrong thing. Take this one husband; he said to his wife “You look really pretty today.” (M_Brambo) But apparently, his wife took it as “you look ugly every day except today.”
