The popular subReddit "Today I F*cked Up" is filled with embarrassing stories of people who immediately regretted their decisions.
Reddit user fishtaco69 just added their own voting-day related mishap to the pile.
What started as a steamy encounter quickly became something less pleasant.
Their story was titled "TIFU by putting 'I Voted' stickers on my boobies."
"TIFU by putting "I Voted" stickers on my boobiesSnsfwThis happened just a few hours ago. Using my actual account because my husband will know it's me and there's no way around this embarrassment. Hi sweetie."
"On with the f*ck up. It's my first time voting and I'm dropping off my ballot. I'm thinking about how nice it is that I did my part as a citizen, and oooohhh stickers! I took more than one and I noticed the large circle was about the same size as my areolas. The wheels in my head start to turn. I get home and strip all my clothes off. I'm feeling quite patriotic as I censor my teets with these sticky knockoff nipple covers."
"While my husband is on the phone, I lift up my bra to show off my work. He makes a face. I know this face. I'm reeling him in. I push a little further. I squeeze them together, wiggle them a little, and do whatever necessary to get the D. He hangs up the phone and gives in to my tempting ways. I start to go down on him for a while. Then I move to give him a taste of what's underneath the sticker. I start to peel it off. F****CK."
"That sh*t is STUCK on there. Trying to keep a brave face, I lift it again, but the sticker has latched on to my nipples like a baby. Should I rip it off like a bandaid? Sweet lady liberty NO! Ladies, do not rip anything off your nipples. Actually, take my advice and don't be stupid enough to put stickers on your nips in the first place."
"I end up hopping in a hot shower praying they come off. One of them rips in the middle down my nipple. When I pull on both, my nipple is stretch sideways almost bringing me to tears. After taking the time to slowly lift it, it finally comes off. I will now treat them extra special and put oil on them or something. Never again. Not even to get d*cked down. The foredaddies of this country, would be ashamed."
"TLDR; I put I Voted stickers on my nipples for the sake of getting in my husband's pants. It was painful to remove. Don't do this no matter how sexy. I regret all of my decisions from the past 2 hours."
utopian238 wondered whether this story of incredibly sticky "I Voted" stickers could be true...
"Where on earth do you get your voting stickers over there? Ours lose their stickiness about 8 seconds after you get them... pretty sure they're leftover from the original batch printed during some sort of New Deal era manufacturing stimulus"
sassyrogue straight up didn't believe the original poster.
"That's because this didn't actually happen."
ReddFro ran a test to see whether this was possible.
"Voted in California, was still wearing my sticker reading this (on my shirt like a normal person) so I figured I'd give it a test. It did indeed grip pretty damn well. I had to reposition my fingers just to pull the stupid thing off and it pulled an impressive amount of fiber along with it."
"That said its pretty oval shaped. Never seen nips that were 2.5x wider than they were tall before (or vice versa), so she either has strange nips or different stickers."
Just_da_fax wondered what happened with the husband.
"Meanwhile the husbands like 'So we still doin' this, or...'"
egnards has been in a similar situation.
"The tape they use to wrap your arm after you donate blood? The f*cking worst. Every f*cking time I say "sh*t next time I'm shaving that part of my arm" and every f*cking time I forget and deal with it over again."
f4te had some advice for the future.
"for future reference, oil (such as olive oil) will often emulsify glues. not all glues, but most. so get em oily I guess"
MaggieSmithsSass knows how hard stickiness can be.
"I get tattooed quite often and one of the WORST parts is taking off the hypoallergenic tape from the bandage the next day. It had 18/24hs sticking glue against your skin. It hurts like hell and it will leave all the glue there once you remove it."
"Yesterday I started my backpiece (from my neck to my mid thigh), so I had hypoallergenic tape all over my shoulders, on my ribs and my thighs. When I peeled it off my clothes got stuck against my skin, it was gross."
"I had to use an organic lavender oil I use in massages to get rid of it. Works like magic."
Aria_kitten_me had their doubts.
"I just tried this, to see if you're lying since the adhesive to the stickers are actually crap. It peels off by itself with little to no stick factor. So unless they gave you some super glue special edition vote stickers, I'm calling BS."
Thrifticted has never had a situation like this before.
"Funny cus those stickers always seem to fall off my shirt after no time at all. Nipples and the sticker adhesive must form some sort of areola-epoxy"
Whether or not the story is true, we should all probably leave "I Voted" stickers off our nipples just to be safe.
