That's why we sympathize with this young man, who posted a photo on Reddit Monday of his childhood self acting as an honorary "flower boy" at his uncle's wedding. User indignant_meerkat explained that his uncle felt bad that he wouldn't get to be in the wedding while his sister would, so he asked him to participate in the ceremony anyway.
"He decided to give me a role walking down the aisle (not sure what I was supposed to do exactly)," he wrote. "Apparently I was given a basket as well, and since I was behind those girls littering flower petals everywhere, I guess I thought it was my job to clean up...," he wrote on Reddit.
Check out the adorable photo below.
Another cute kid had the same idea in 2011 -- she picked up all the petals the other flower girl had dropped on the aisle.
