    Chrissy Teigen Tweeted What She Thinks Is "The Most Embarrassing Thing" In The "Entire World," And Yup, I’d Agree That It’s Mortifying

    "I wanna melt into a puddle and down a drain into the ocean."

    Here’s yet another funny tweet from Chrissy Teigen — who has written a lot of them — and this one’s so relatable that it hurts.

    Chrissy recently took to Twitter to share what she believes "the most embarrassing thing" is, and it's — unfortunately — a dilemma that many people face on a regular basis.

    VH1

    "To me, the most embarrassing thing in [the] entire entire entire entire entire entire entire entire entire world, as in I wanna melt into a puddle and down a drain into the ocean then boiled into steam and blown into the atmosphere, is calling someone by the wrong name."

    OK, let's unpack this. That's a lot of "entires," but it perfectly sums up a very awkward social situation.

    First of all, it's ONE THING to forget someone's name — a person you perhaps have seen enough times that you should definitely know their name — but it's a WHOLE other level of awkward to call them a completely different — and wrong — name. As Chrissy says, it makes one "wanna melt into a puddle and down a drain into the ocean then boiled into steam and blown into the atmosphere."

    Anyways, Chrissy continued her thread to further make her point: "Meanwhile, if any of us, any of us!, were called by the wrong name, WE WOULD NOT CARE? I can’t imagine caring."

    Meanwhile if any of us, any of us!, were called by the wrong name, WE WOULD NOT CARE? I can’t imagine caring

    CHELSEA TEIGEN HAS A POINT!

    "John could do it. I wouldn't care," she concluded.

    According to Chrissy, even her husband, John Legend, could call her by the wrong name, and it wouldn't bug her the same way.

    Many fans agreed with Chrissy's most embarrassing thing: "This is why I’ve never asked my neighbour his name. I know his dog's name but not his. It’s been 3 years. I cannot ask now," one fan tweeted.

    @chrissyteigen This is why I’ve never asked my neighbour his name. I know his dogs name but not his. It’s been 3 years. I cannot ask now.

    "[I've] said 'oh hi [it's] so nice to meet you,' and the person has gone '[I've] known you for 5 years,'" another fan shared.

    @chrissyteigen I can beat that, iv said 'oh hi its so nice to meet you,' and the person has gone 'iv known you for 5 years.' Ahh... well... oops? The MOST of embarrassed death puddle

    Some eventually got caught using the wrong name:

    @KateRumTruffle @chrissyteigen Lived here 15 years, FIFTEEN! Been calling a neighbor Gina for 15 yrs, she JUST told us her name is Debrah about a month ago. I kid you not. 🤦🏻‍♀️

    And some even started sharing other stories of their "most embarrassing" moments.

    Like this accidental flash photo:

    @chrissyteigen idk chrissy once i was in the subway standing next to a cute stranger and i took a picture so i could send it to my friends and the flash went off. less than a foot away from their face.

    Or this almost-embrace with a total stranger:

    @ChrisCarfizzi @chrissyteigen This reminds of the time I was in kindergarten and started running up to a woman who I thought was my mom and like I mean with my arms wide open all ready for a hug...I was so embarrassed that I STILL REMEMBER.

    I mean, haven't we all mistaken someone else for our mom in public!!!???

    Or even this awkward moment of walking in on someone in the bathroom:

    @rileyellle @chrissyteigen I once pressed the accessible button for a public bathroom in the middle of a mall and there was a man on the toilet. He had to wait until the door fully, slowly opened and then closed again. I think he and I both win.

    And just like that, Chrissy started a long Twitter thread of fairly entertaining but incredibly embarrassing moments!!!

    NBC

    And I highly suggest that you read through it!
