After you have finally talked to your long-time crush or just had a huge lunch, you’ve been hiccupping for more than 10 times in the past hour or so. While it’s funny at first, hiccupping almost every minute is really annoying.
Add in the fact that hiccupping is involuntary and can happen any time of the day without you telling your body to hiccup or to stop makes it extremely irritating and embarrassing. Have you ever experienced hiccupping in a social gathering and everybody were like, ‘Awww… that’s so cute!”? Nope, doesn’t always happen that way. What usually happens is that people will laugh, albeit not boisterously or insultingly, but they’re laughing all the same. And it’s not a pleasant experience to be getting the attention of everyone for something as embarrassing as that.
