We all know a story--multiple stories--about a walk of shame. Whether it is you, your roommate or your weird cousin who only calls every few months, you have definitely heard a story that resulted in a certain level of second-hand embarrassment. On the off chance that you think you are exempt from this feeling of shame, don’t forget to account for these seven Boston College “Walks of Shame”:
- The Late Night Run
There is nothing like changing into sweatpants after a late night out in the Mods for no other reason than to swing by Late Night for a basket of chicken fingers and french fries. Some may call it shameful, most just call it Friday.
- The Newton Hike
Some memories stick with you for the rest of your life, and this walk of shame is one of them. Walking home to Newton after missing the last bus home from an off-campus party may or may not be the most shameful thing you ever do. As if living on Newton didn’t already scream “freshman.” Luckily, brats like us have Uber.
- The Gasson Bathroom Exit
Is there anything worse than leaving a single stall bathroom in Gasson after taking just a little bit too long? No. There isn’t.
- The 1 p.m. Breakfast Excursion
This walk of shame is similar to the Late Night run but without the shadow of darkness. It is always a shameful experience to venture into the too-bright afternoon sun just to acquire a few eggs and some home fries. It really is too bad that dining bucks can’t buy dignity.
- The Elevator Departure
You may be wearing a cohesive outfit, but that doesn’t excuse the fact that you rode the Maloney elevators to the second floor while the rest of us pointedly sighed and checked our watches. Ugh.
- The Booze Bus Adventure
Granted this might be more of a walk of pride for newly 21 year-olds, but it is sort of embarrassing to ride the bus to Reservoir Liquors only to drag yourself and your two cases for individual consumption right back onto that bus 10 minutes later.
- THE Walk of Shame
You know the drill. Either it is 4 a.m. and your shirt is on backwards, or it is the Saturday morning before a football game and you’re still in your Halloween costume from the night before. It’s okay. It happens to everyone. Just keep your head up high and act like you dressed that way on purpose.
