I've had this happen to a friend. Where someone onstage was talking to a kid in the audience. My friend did not realize and started to shout the answers as well. Then when called on stage he started walking and as he got close and saw the kid he realized and was so embarrassed.
How old are you?
What’s your favorite subject in school?
“I don’t go to school I’m 27!”
Is that your mom sitting next to you?
“No it’s my wife!”
I was getting a haircut a few days ago and the wife of the hairdresser was behind me and was saying "What school do you go to?", she said it like 4 times in a row getting louder and louder. Then getting up and tapping me before repeating it again.
"What school do you go to?"
Her mouth close to my beard as she mistook me for a 15 year old. She may have also asked if I'm deaf but I couldn't hear her too well.
She was audibly offended when I brought to light the fact
"I didn't know you were asking the 2X year old"
and she directed my attention to my parent who I was shopping with and came with me, as if in her 60 year old mind everyone who had their parents still alive was in school. Even if your parents are mid 50 years old.
She asked what my job was, I told her and she replied:
"Well then god help us"
I just kept silent after that to stop fueling the garbage fire coming out of her mouth.
Thankfully her husband is nice enough for both of them and kept reiterating she "was joking", and did a good job himself. I wanted to leave a bad review but I'm not going to hurt a dude's business just because his wife's life insurance hasn't paid out yet.
What IS your job?
Reminds me of a memory from my childhood. I was maybe 7 or 8 years old, and my grandparents took me to see Weinerville LIVE. Yes, Weinerville, the show on Nickelodeon with the human heads on puppets and slime etc. Anyway, I absolutely loved that show and I was super pumped when they turned it into a live touring stage show, hosted by Marc Weiner himself! I was ecstatic when my grandparents got me the tickets when it came to a local theater for my Birthday.
Anyway, towards the end of the show, Marc announced he would be picking several members of the audience to get "Weinerized" (this was the part on the show where they would put kids into a "machine" that would turn them into puppets themselves.), and compete for the chance to win the Golden Hotdog. That was like, my ultimate dream. I shot my hand up...stood on my seat...jumped up and down...I HAD to get up there. I couldn't believe it when, out of all the thousands of screaming kids, he actually pointed right at me. I pointed at myself as if to say "me?", to which I was pretty sure he waved his arm in a "come here" motion. I was so excited, but crazy nervous as I'd have to get up on stage in front of a few thousand people. But, my family nudged me to go up. So I built up my courage, and strutted to the front. I climbed up the stairs onto the stage with a huge smile on my face. My excitement overshadowed the piercing feeling of having all those eyes on me.
I walked across the stage, under the blinding lights, not knowing exactly where to go...but I had the Weinerizer Machine in my sight...calling me forward. Then, Marc Weiner, the man I admired, turned to me in all his glory, looked me up and down, and said, in front of thousands of people.... "No. Not you, I didn't pick you."
Then he kind of laughed. Before I could process what happened, one of the attendants quickly shuffled me off the stage.
I head to walk of shame back to my seat in front of everyone. Dreams crushed. Watching the chosen ones get Weinerized. That memory has haunted me ever since :(
I'll just continue being completely unremarkable, thanks very much. I don't even like people at restaurants knowing it's my birthday, your experience sounds like what my hell will be.
Easy mistake to make. I've thought people were pointing at/talking to me tons of times. And you were just a kid ffs. Forgive yourself.
Damn dude, what happened then? Did he get berated or something for supposedly being a dick?
At least he didn't pull it out of her hands
The high five kills me.
Like one adult is bad enough but the fact that multiple adults didn't see anything wrong with that situation is not okay.
I dunno it looks to me like the guy was holding his hand up as if to say, "Now hold on a second" and she misinterpreted it as a high five. Look at the way he pulls his hand back as if she had snot on it.
She said in an interview that she didn't realize there was a girl there. Apparently she thought it was just stuck in the air.
I had someone do this to me when the bride threw the bouquet at a wedding.
I was a plus one who didn't really know anyone, so I didn't jump or anything. The bouquet still hit me right in the face. Next thing I knew, this chick knocked me to the floor so hard my dress flipped up, yanked the flowers out of my hands, and then just sat on my neck screaming, "I caught it! I caught it!"
The photographer ran over and pulled my dress down some, and then everyone just sort of stood around until this chick sort of came back to herself and realized there was another person there. It was really awkward as she realized she didn't catch the flowers and slowly stood up.
I think sometimes people fixate on a target and just don't see anything else.
Flower tosses are fucking terrifying. I'm usually the photographer and I'm scared for my life. Anytime I've been in one I'm like "wow this is fun OK bouquet en route I'm out." Elbows flying, "I was on a diet but I just decided to get my dress re-fit," champagne fueled women screaming and moshing over some fucking flowers. And then the chief psycho holds them up from the mayhem and all the women start screaming and pointing at her poor mate like THE FLOWERS HAVE ORDAINED IT YOU ARE TO BE MARRIED.
I had this happen to me at a hockey game once when I was 12. Caught a t-shirt above my head and an old lady behind me clawed my hand and snatched it.
Yeah people can be shit. When I was 19 I was at a concert and had been front row. If I get a chance I like to get a hold of a set list to have signed since they usually have them taped to the floor. I asked one of the band members as he was tearing down if I could have one and he happily obliged, but when he handed it to me at the people around me started fighting over it and ripped it to shreds in the process.
Luckily he had my back, he looked at them all and said “what the hell is wrong with you people?” And told me to meet him up at the side so he could give me the other one. Sweet victory.
Edit: the band was Gojira for those wondering. Incredibly nice dudes.
I was at Gerard Way (I know, emo to the extremeo) and I immediately asked a roadie after the shirts for a set list and he said yeah okay. Once he pulled the set list up and was walking back to me other people realized what was happening and ran over to try to rip it from his hands. Luckily, he yelled at everyone to put their hands down, me included, and he put it into my hands. I was so grateful for him caring enough that I had asked earlier. I saw the other set lists were completely destroyed by this behavior on the other side of the stage. Such a bummer how people behave.
My friend and another girl caught a drumstick at a concert and I loved that they just played rock paper scissors to decide who would get to keep it. My friend won and she just gave it to me as a gift, that was awesome.
I got hit in the face with a drumstick and put it in my bag, which was one of those like drawstring kinds, and someone stole it out of my bag.
Oh man I would be so fucking pissed. People are garbage.
I went to a wednesday 13 show in my area (It was my 13th birthday) and Wednesday threw his guitar pick and my brother caught it. This guy ripped it out of his hands and my brother got into a fist fight with the guy and got it back, then my brother gave the pick to me. I was so happy, then the guy after the show met outside and waited for me and my brother and had him and his buddy beat up my brother and me... Yes full grown adults beat up an 18 year old and a 13 year old. Well wednesday was outside and saw it, he got security. They broke it up and the main guy ran off with the pick and the security just let him go. Wednesday got a new one, signed it, got a shirt, got the entire band to sign it, and he even signed my forehead and let me get a picture with him, and then he waited till the security guard was gone and gave me a sip of his beer. Shit was nasty but was the worst and best experience of my life. He was such a cool dude. I still have the shirt in my closet and havent worn it once.
Edit: Heres the picture. http://i.imgur.com/ReJYXrS.jpg
I had a bruise for a week but not even something cool to show for it.
Best friend had a pick land on his forehead at the end of a Ghost show. He put his hand out and as it landed there he just stared. Surprised no one tried to rip it from his hands in those seconds. I vaguely recall someone giving him a high five and saying that was awesome.
Regardless, he has luck catching that shit at concerts... I do not.
Metal bands are the best. The singer of Cattle Decapitation shoved his finger down his throat and tried to throw up on my gf at the time because I told him she loved him.
Aww that's so sweet! Sounds like a wholesome band :)
Gojira is fucking awesome
This happened to me in the early 2000s, Sammy Sosa caught out 3 and started running in, pointed at me and tossed it up. It was all slow motion, the ball in the air, and right into a glove of a middle aged person. (It was a hot blonde, he wasn’t actually pointing at me) but I remember
Haha when I was little I'd go down to the seats above exit corridor at the vet during Eagles preseason games to try to get the gloves and wristbands and stuff the players would throw up in the air on their way off the field. I had many things snatched out of my hands by weird old men but I was persistent and squeezed in there on many occasions with more than a few successes. Just the way it is.
Some grown ass woman did something similar with a bouquet. I had it and she snatched it out of my hands. Like damn it's not that serious it's literally flowers bitch
Lmao 😂 my friend's sister did that to me at her wedding when I caught the bouquet. She looked like she was going to murder me, shooting daggers from her eyes. The flowers fell directly into my hands, perfectly. I just released my grip when she grabbed them and looked at me with boiling fury. Her boyfriend saw this go down and was pissed and sat at a table by himself for the next 20 minutes. And they just broke up ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I guess the bouquet snatch didn't get her the wedding she wanted
Thanks for sharing this, I'm satisfied now.
Lol that happy high five though. Nothing better than ruining a kids day.
well now I'm angry
Staff at the game found the girl and gave her stuff, and the commentators talked about how shitty the woman was
the commentators talked about how shitty the woman was
Awww that's so sweet
Considering they did news segments on this, I bet all of her friends and colleagues saw her intentionally steal from a kid. That's gotta be some humiliating justice.
every time i see that clip i seethe with a deep, hateful rage. her haircut makes it much worse for some reason.
She has to steal from your kid at 4 and talk to your manager at 5
We’ll both be angry together
Where are her parents I'm not even her mom and I would go downtown there and check her ass.
There’s a happy ending to that story though. Thankfully.
I’m not familiar, please can you let me know what happened?
would have been funny if the Football player went up and said 'no no, I was trying to throw it to the man'. So the boy has to give it back.
I love impractical jokers but it always leaves me feeling uneasy. This reminds me of the episode where they made the guy keep catching the baseballs and not letting the kids get them while he talked about how much money he would be making selling them.
The original name for the show was "Mission: Uncomfortable."
Never heard that. I like it much better
Not related to baseball or anything, but your mention of Impractical Jokers reminds me that one punishment Sal had to do where he kept calling out bingo. Too funny.
I gotta find the clip now to rewatch that.
I felt so bad for him in that episode.
The one where he can’t turn the volume on his laptop down and they’re playing porn is 100% the hardest I’ve ever cringed in my life. I think he was tearing up he was so embarrassed
Edit: so people can see it
Lol I remember that one and feeling so sorry for him because he literally looked like he was about to cry. Most awkward one for me was when Sal was at some book-reading thing and his phone kept going off because the other guys kept ringing him, obviously pissing off the other people as a result. At one point, some Good Samaritan came to him and “helped” him switch off his phone and he had to switch it back on and continue. Fucking painful to watch.
Edit: just saw the same punishment being referenced further down the thread, so you’ve probably seen it.
My personal favorite of Sal's. "Who's phone is ringing? MINE. MINE !"
My favorite clip from the show is when Sal pulled out a giant straw and tried to drink out of another guy's glass from a completely different table. I can't remember another time where I laughed as hard as I did when I saw that for the first time.
One of my favourites was when murr was at a baseball game and wasn't allowed to give change back to people. He was the peanuts and beer guy. Oof it hurt my soul watching him take people money, then just walk away. XD
Omg I just saw the one where he has to lifeguard and kick everyone out. I was dying
EVERYONE OUTTA THE POOL! BULLYING!
The one where he has his phone on at the poetry night and it keeps ringing... Yikes
🎵Whose phone is ringing?
Man the people where getting so mad it was hilarious
How can people watch it? The second hand embarrassment just fucking kills me I can barely get through those punishment segments
Because they're only embarrassing themselves. They never (very rarely?) make the unsuspecting public the butt of the joke. They are the true victims of the pranks and they've signed up for it completely willingly. That, coupled with their true friendship and joy amongst themselves makes it far more fun than the cringe of watching someone with no choice get embarrassed.
Yeah. I get it, and at the end when they reveal they were pulling a prank is big relief but it's still just so cringey to watch someone go through that. Especially when they're doing something is seriously pissing off people around them, it looks like pure torture
Grandma’s take their bingo very seriously
Guys please don't make me do th-
And that makes Sal tonight's biggest loser
I still say "imagination dragons" because I'm laughing at the Sal punishment
They literally have to sign a model release for them to be on the show, so they might feel uncomfortable and cringy at first but they're notified it's just a show.
I think the ones that don't sign the release have their faces blurred.
Correct, but they've still been approached and asked whether they deny it or not.
I don't know about impractical jokers, but I know often shows will get a release signed after everything has happened, so it's not like the know its just a show when it happens.
Yeah, but if you think about how they tell everyone afterwards, it doesn't seem nearly as cringey. It also makes them seem lame when they refuse to do certain things because you realize the stakes are actually very low.
joe is such a wild card in that show. he will refuse to do the dumbest things and then 2 games later he does something 50x worse without a second thought
I feel like 85 percent of the Joe losses are just him giving pity points because he's so beyond the others. The rest definitely have their funny moments but joe is incredibly quick and clever. Like the average class clown vs peak Robin Williams. Yeah everything that comes out might not be hilarious, but when he's machine gunning 20 jokes a minute, there's bound to be some gold
Not really when you consider some of the things they do risk getting the shit beat out of them before they can explain "it's just a prank bro"
They said they’ve all been punched at least once each.
Shit Q snuck up on a little league game in a ghillie suit and broke his ribs getting tackled by a coach.
Edit: This was not aired in the regular show, it was either a clip in I believe Inside Jokes or After Party. It’s paired with a clip of Q also breaking his ribs in an ATV accident shortly before.
Edit 2: It was during the challenge where they had to record strangers with a microphone, but it was aired during one of the special episodes, not in the normal season.
Shit Q snuck up on a little league game in a ghillie suit and broke his ribs getting tackled by a coach.
Can you find a clip for this? Never heard of them doing this.
I looked it up on Google and the only link I was able to find led me back to this thread.
It definitely didn't happen in seasons 1-6, so it must have been:
Season 7 (I didn't watch season 7)
Didn't show the footage and the jokers talked about it
OC is misremembering
I want to see the footage too so someone let me know if it's found lol.
q doing the red x on the paintings would have had his ass kicked if the kids were excused from the room somehow. i think that's the only time i remember seeing someone apologize for the prank because it was so inhumane
There's also the mural Q "painted" in Dover, DE, that said "Diver sucks" and he thanked the mayor for paying him $25,000 to paint it. I thought he was going to crack or get his ass kicked.
Lots of people on that show apparently aren’t settled by the fact it’s for a tv show.
One time a guy that started following Murr and shoved him waited outside for him to kick his ass despite it being for a tv show. It’s one of the only times they aired security having to separate them.
Do you know what episode this was on?
You know, because we see it all the time and it’s all pranks and fun, it’s easy to think ‘ugh what an asshole, not playing along’ but you know, when you’ve had a fuckin shit day and some clown is trying to play up on you, you walk away and he’s following you, won’t leave you alone and clearly trying to make you the butt of his jokes…
I like to think I’d play along, the truth is I’d probably be one of those people who makes a face and walks away but I’m not surprised you get the odd guy acting this way.
That's much easier said from the comfort of your home. It's 10x more uncomfortable when they're actually out there
Looked like an accident for sure
He seemed too fascinated and excited for that special symbol of clothing from a decent player, so he forgot the environment around him. Makes total sense.
You can see him wave at the guy, like "i want the shirt!!" And then, assuming he was oblivious to the short child, it looks like he's throwing it to him! I feel bad for the guy, but literally only because i am that oblivious, too.
Yeah, on the first veiwing I thought he was a twat. But I rewatched it and he was actually pretty good about it - just honestly thought it was intended for him.
I dont think he even saw the kid. If you look at his eyes before he takes it. And he actually looks surprised after he finds out it was for the kid.
Yeah, it doesn't look like he noticed the kid at all, and it's not like he's the only person with his hand out to get the shirt.
This is a Bayern Munich game, the kid has a sign about Joshua Kimmich, who’s the player that throws the shirt. I’m not a German speaker but I think it’s about it being the kids birthday. Obviously the man can’t see the sign and has probably walked down the steps from somewhere just to grab a shirt. As soon as he realises what the situation is, he seems to be pretty apologetic.
I don’t really agree with the general practice of adults trying to grab shirts/balls/boots etc when there are kids reaching for them but in this case I think he wasn’t being malicious.
Edit: sign is about the player’s birthday, as people below have explained.
Its the birthday of Joshua Kimmich and the kid wanted to congratulate him
It was Kimmich's (the player's birthday) and the kid wrote brithday wishes for him on the sign.
It roughly says "Joshua Kimmich, we wanted to wish you a happy birthday. Please come here."
Agreed. He looks pretty focused on the guy throwing the shirt and doesn’t seem to notice anyone in front of him. Looks like he legitimately thought it was thrown to him.
I think it could have also been the guy realizing that he wasn’t getting away with the shirt. I just wanna say, I do hope everything wasn’t malicious.
Simple mistake. He gave it to the kid respectfully so don't fire him.
That right there is the scariest part. Those brief, awkward, and ultimately harmless 10 seconds could absolutely ruin that man’s life if the internet hate machine decided it so.
Awhile ago there was this post of a dude and his gf in a game.
He was trying to cover his face during the pic so people called him out as a cheating douchebag who was at the game with his mistress or something like that.
Edit: he took his arm away from his wife when they appeared on the big screen.
He then came on Reddit to prove em wrong lol.
Anyone remember that post?
Here is the link to the gif. If you google the title you will find a couple posts on reddit. It was a fucking shitshow.
I believe this is the original post.
I feel like he genuinely thought it was for him.
Edit: Lots of opinions below me. At the end of the day we should look not to just crucify people on the internet as if our personal morality is so pure. Kid got the shirt. All is fine.
If you look at it from the guy's point of view it did look like it was going to him. He had his hands out, the guy was facing towards him, and the kid had his hands full with the sign(of which he could only see the back of). The kid didn't even look like he knew he was about to get the shirt. If the kid was all jazzed with his hands out and shit it would have been a lot more obvious. He did go hard trying to grab it though
People forget that when you're in a crowd, eye contact and pointing to the person literally inches away from you can be misconstrued as meant for yourself. Ever had someone you don't know smile at you, and you think they're flirting, but they're actually smiling at the person next to you that they know? Same thing. Now imagine that you're already looking at them wanting them to smile at you.
But reddit needs someone to hate.
I think so too, or he's a very good actor. The way he snatched the shirt looks really asshole-ish at a first glance, but I think he just could've been excited.
Also if he thought it was for him, then any other arm reaching for it would be some other ass trying to snatch it from him so it makes sense that he'd have to be aggressive about it. I watched it twice thinking he was an asshole and still didn't notice that he had his hand up the whole time so yeah, probably thought it was for him.
The uplifting part of this video is not the adults forcing the man to give back the shirt, it’s that the man was level headed and reasonable enough to realize his mistake and gave it back without conflict. A lot of people would have just ran away with it.
Am I the only one who thinks this was just a genuine mistake? The guy had his hand up and the player was walking right over to him. He also looks genuine when he gives the shirt to the kid.
Edit: He even looks at the player for confirmation when the fans tell him it was for the kid. He thought the player was giving it to him. Just a misunderstanding.
Im with you. I don't even think the kid is on the dudes radar as hes focused on the player about to toss the shirt. Looks to me he thinks it's a free for all. Then he realized what was up and gave it up no probs. I think it's innocent mistake.
Edit. Also for those who still think this was malicious look at the guy who gets the shirt from the start of the video. His hand is up the whole time, the kids isn't.. so he genuinely thinks it's being thrown to him.
Doesn't even have to be a free for all in his mind. The guy probably thinks the player is staring right at him given the angle.
Yep and while everyone is crusifying the guy who it was thrown towards and made a mistake the guy on the right who blatantly tries to grab it from the kid is barely acknowledged.
That looks like it could easily have been his older brother to his left...all of those 4-5 kids look like they could be related.
The only villain here is the older kid reaching across multiple people to intercept the shirt.
And the shirt is tossed straight towards him. The kid is left handed and has to reach across his body. From the dudes perspective the kid didn't react to catch the shirt at all.
Hmmm. Not sure......We should probably murder him and everyone in his family just to be sure though.
Also, sometimes it sucks when kids are around. I went to a Rays/Yankee game (CT transplant in Tampa), sat behind the Yankee dugout, and Curtis Granderson (clearly years ago) kept looking at me to toss me a ball but I was surrounded by kids and gave 3 balls away that he threw to me because their parents gave me looks. SORRY I ALSO LIKE BASEBALL AND CURTIS GRANDERSON. I know I may sound immature AF but adults want to get cool shit too!
Imagine the feeling of everything going wrong in your life, then one day you catch the ball, youre happy AF and then you have to give it away. Trice.
can be are sad too. I'd likely get drunk on day like this lol
Oh I’m on camera!? Why didn’t you say! I was juss keeding!
Nah he saw the player staring at him.
Oh mi scusi. Mi scusi.
train enters tunnel
Lookin for some HOT STUFF
Baby this evening
I don't know if you've ever been to a sporting event like this but there is zero chance that moment was him realizing he was on camera. He looked out to the player, who was on the field, not at the camera. The camera is on the other side of the arena, zooming in on the scene, he probably didn't even notice it.
to be 'fair', everyone gets so enthused they don't even register what is happening around them. Given the time delay between him grabbing it and returning it, I'm inclined to grant benefit of 'enthused'.
if we judge everyone like this, we are all doomed.
still a funny / weird moment though, and no, I wouldn't be trying to catch a giveaway like that, I'm really not that much of a sports fan.
Also everyone seems to think he was playing it off as a joke, I think he was saying he didn't realize the situation. I also don't know of course
Unpopular opinion, but I don't think this guy is the villain everyone is making him out to be. Maybe a bit clueless, but I don't think he realized the shirt was meant for the kid.
Watch his face the entire clip. He's making direct eye contact with the athlete with the shirt. He's excited. he's holding he hand out. He thinks the athlete is throwing the shirt directly at him. When people stop him at first he's visibly confused. Then he hands the shirt to the kid and even looks embarrassed by the whole situation.
Give the guy a break. He's at a sports even with a lot of noise, a lot of excitement, he looks like he's real into it. And it looks like he was real nice about giving the shirt back. Can we please forgive him, or are we out for this guy's head?
Exactly. This thread is a mess with people insulting the guy.
I didn't even recognize that as a kid at first, don't blame em
I feel like y’all have never been to a sporting event. When an athlete throws something into the crowd it’s usually a free for all. The guy had no idea it was for the kid.
Reppin the Chicago Bears hat in Munich 😎
I kinda want to give him the benefit of the doubt. He was looking straight at the player and not the kid. So maybe he didn’t see him?
At least he gave it to the kid afterwards.
