You know that super embarrassing thing that you did in elementary school that still keeps you up at night? Yeah, everyone still remembers.
While you’d love to forget that time you peed your pants, or when you puked in front of the whole class, spraying vomit onto your teacher and blackboard in the process, it’s pretty likely people will remember, even decades later.
Last week, Twitter user sewkx shared an embarrassing story about her schoolmate Danielle from the sixth grade, who accidentally said the word “orgasm” instead of “organism” while reading out loud to the class. Ouch, Danielle. Tough times.
In my 6th grade science class a girl read “orgasm” instead of “organism” and the class laughed & she was embarrassed. To calm her down our teacher told her everyone would forget in two weeks. It’s been 9 years & I still remember Danielle. I fucking remember. I hope you see this. pic.twitter.com/gCXcXbJX2i

“To calm her down our teacher told her everyone would forget in two weeks,” they explained. “It’s been 9 years & I still remember Danielle. I fucking remember. I hope you see this.”
Someone even corroborated the story, saying it “spread like wildfire” through the school.
Wes no lie I REMEMBER this story getting spread like wildfire through the entire 6th grade.

The thread prompted other embarrassing stories people recalled from childhood, proving your worst nightmare true: people don’t forget.
Oh man a guy did the same thing in my 6th grade science class and sometimes I randomly remember and die from laughter 😂😂

During sex education I was asked what masturbation was in the assembly hall in front of all the students. My answer? “Is it a game show on channel 4?”
School was the worst!

A guy was reading The Glass Menagerie in a college class full of nuns. The line that was supposed to be read: You always talk about mastication all the time! He said masturbation. The class could not STOP laughing😂

Not as bad as mixing up the word “election” with “erection”

In 3rd grade we had a spelling bee in class, a normal every other week activity. I got the word clock, and I spelt it “C O C K”. I didn’t even realize I left out the L until everyone was laughing and I had to ask the teacher why everyone was laughing. I sat down in shame.

On 2nd day of 6th grade science, a boy eagerly answered the question “What’s the smallest living being?” as orgasm. Laughter ensued. His name was Brett. That was over two decades ago 🤷♀️
