We are all human. Whether you’re rich, poor, tall, short, skinny, or fat, there are some things that every single person on the planet looks ridiculous doing.

On Reddit, someone asks, “What’s something that everyone looks stupid doing?” Here are the top funny and all too true results.

1. The Accidental Spit Choke

We’ve probably all done this one. One user explains, “When you go to speak and choke on your own spit and sit there for 30 minutes coughing to try and collect yourself.”

The community agreed, one user says: “and by the time you collect yourself your witty reply has been lost in the dust and the conversation has gone on to another topic.”

3. Picking Up a Credit Card

It’s annoying to drop anything on the floor, but there’s one indigence that makes the person look silly. “Trying to pick a credit card up from a perfectly smooth floor.” Says one Redditor. Has this ever happened to you?

Most would agree that chasing after any ball rolling away can feel quite embarrassing, especially if you don’t successfully get it or trip in the process.

9. The Fake Wave

This is another one that happens to everyone. A writer describes “The moment when you think someone is waving at you or saying “hi” in a public place, but it’s not aimed at you. So you try and play it cool, but it’s never cool.”

10. The Fake Wave

People share another awkward wave when you’re the recipient of it. “Someone waving at you, but you don’t immediately recognize them and are afraid to be the guy who waves back, so you pretend you never saw them and just laser vision towards where you’re going to avoid the aftermath.”

11. Spider Web Freak Out

No matter who you are, walking through a spider web tends to elicit a freakout, whether it’s flailing, screaming, jumping, shuddering, or all four at once.

Bees (and any other bug with wings) always seem to fly right in your face or ear when it’s least expected, causing a minor panic and flailing of the arms.
