What’s more soul crushing than misspelling a word at a Spelling Bee competition? Not being able to even hear the word that you’re going to potentially misspell. Watch this epic Spelling Bee fail as YouTube user Itsamecf9303 repeatedly asks the moderator to say the word.

The awkward exchange goes on forever, but luckily it ends in a happy ending. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I find it ironic that I can’t hear his explanation portion at the beginning of the clip.
