14 Times Hindsight Stuck Our Foot In Our Mouth
Hindsight is 20/20, but sometimes what comes out of our mouths doesn’t look nearly as good. Even though we at Cracked would never dare say something that we would take back (just don’t dig too deep into our site or flip through a magazine) we enjoy laughing at other people’s cringeworthy moments as much as the next person. We asked Cracked readers on Facebook, “In hindsight, what’s the most foolish thing you’ve ever said?” The most common response was “I do.” Which is definitely one of the most expensive ones.
Aside from giving marriage advice (of “Don’t do it”), the responses were assorted but almost all of them were painful to read. From things that were immediately regrettable to some things that took years to realize how distressing it was to say, people sure stuck their feet in their mouths. Words may not break any bones, but they can cause us to lose sleep at night.
