Underwear, feminine hygiene products, awkward prescriptions… pray the cashier doesn’t acknowledge it.

Typos? Sending it to the wrong person? Accidentally hitting “Reply All?” Pasting the wrong URL? SO MANY BLUNDERS TO AVOID.

9. Your roommates walking in when you least expect it.

10. Your parents.
