What Do People Really Think About You?
A new website, failin.gs, gives people a forum to point out your flaws.
– Carrie Seim
What if you were walking around with a “Debbie Downer” attitude or a limp handshake? Would you want someone to point those things out to you?
A new website aims to do just that. Failin.gs allows your friends to anonymously catalog your fatal flaws – those poppy-seed-stuck-in-your-personality moments of life. The site promises to let you know – once and for all – what the people in your life really think of you. (Boring, bad listener, makes poor choices in vegetables, etc.)
Like drunken tattoos and midnight KFC, file this one under Things You’ll Probably Regret in the Morning.
As The Huffington Post recently reported, failin.gs lets you create a profile and invite friends to leave “anonymous criticism about your character.”
That’s kind of like hosting a party blindfolded and asking your friends to inflict paper cuts on your cuticles, pour lemon juice in the wounds and play the Jonas Brothers on repeat all night long.
Or reliving eighth grade.
