Listen, being a news anchor is hard. Especially if you don't know how to shuffle your paper so you can, you know, read.
Exhibit A, a clip of an ITV presenter has gone viral after he got in to a muddle while doing the traditional end-of-bulletin paper shuffle.
ITV News Royal Editor Chris Ship was finishing up Tuesday's lunchtime program when he encountered trouble during the maneuver — eventually resorting to throwing them on the floor when he go frustrated.
And, I'd do the same.
Impeccable bulletin as ever @chrisshipitv, but worst paper shuffle ever! https://t.co/iGHpdlCoAz— Matt Teale (@Matt Teale)1575986184.0
“Impeccable bulletin as ever @chrisshipitv, but worst paper shuffle ever!" fellow ITV presenter Matt Teale shared on a clip.
Newsround presenter Ricky Boleto then shared a clip of himself doing almost exactly the same thing.
I see your terrible paper #shuffle @chrisshipitv AND I RAISE YOU! 🤣 https://t.co/OWhU6HqMFC— Ricky Boleto (@Ricky Boleto)1576064877.0
“I see your terrible paper #shuffle @chrisshipitv AND I RAISE YOU!" he tweeted.
After the clip captured the attention of Twitter users, Ship followed up with a clip from the next day's bulletin, in which he neatly filed his papers into a folder.
“Can we now move on from that schoolboy #shuffle error…? One is learning from one's mistakes," he tweeted.

But, the internet didn't let it go.
They tweeted some relatable content.
