That Awkward Moment...
That awkward moment...
  • When you've already said "what?" three times and still have no idea what the person said, so you just agree.
  • When you're dancing and you turn around & realize someone has been watching you the whole time.
  • You walk into a spider web and suddenly turn in to a karate master.
  • When somebody ugly says "I need my beauty sleep"...
  • When you say goodbye to somebody and you both walk the same way.
  • When you run over your own banana peel in Mario Kart.
Awkward moments to which we can all relate, right? You know you have some!

 You mean like the time I was in Vegas (on a school day----I was sick.) enjoying myself and bumped into a parent who volunteers at my school....................or the time ........well geez......any time I bump into a parent when I'm not in my teach attire, it's awkward.

I dont know if I told this before or not so i'm gonna go for it again.

When I moved to this apartment complex a few years ago, I met my new neighbor. I said "Hi, i'm johnny"  and she said her name and that was that. So, over the course of the next couple of days I noticed she would call me steven instead of johnny. I dont know why, but I let her think my name was steven for about the next  3 months. Eventually we started to become more friends than neighbors, so one day, she said "hello steven", so I said  "my name is actually johnny, not steven"  She kinda gave me a blank stare and then said "why the hell would you let me call you steven this whole time?"  I told her that I waited too long to correct her and  I thought there was no turning back.  She didnt talk to me much after that, just some "heys" and "hows its goins"?   Like I give a sh** anyway. Her loss.



Thanks for letting me share.

When I have to umpire my own kid's game and he's knows the rules and the strike zone for as long as he's been playing baseball (he started at 4, he's now 11), yet goes nuts when I call him out on strikes on the same pitch EVERY SINGLE TIME on the outside corner of the plate, or at the knees.

It takes all of my fatherly strength not to smack him on the back of the batting helmet and say, "SWING AT THOSE - YOU KNOW THEY'RE STRIKES!!!!!" LOL

My awkward moments happen with patients that I see in the stores...out of the element....I might know that they are patients, but can't immediately recall their name, so I'll say "Hey, how are you doing?"....

#5 | 921 days ago

(Edited by VIOLET)

Generally I don't pay attention to people or things in general, so when I am in some social situation and people come to say hi, there are occasions when my friends try to introduce me to someone and he or she says, I know you, we met at.... how are you?  and I have no idea who they are, so I just smile and talk about anything.   I don't even recognized a neighbor that lived a few years in front of my house when we attended at an exhibition.

P.S. And I need my beauty sleep btw

This really happened tp me way back .  I was going to attend a 6:00 pm. church service in Quiapo, Manila  when I was near the entrance door someone called me and approached me and said "Hi Ana how  are you?  It's been so long we haven't had a nice get together and then someone approached me and held my hand and the first one held me like a friend putting his shoulders at my shoulder blade.  Little did I know that they were hold uppers.  They took my hand bag as well as my jewelries one at a time.  I can't shout for help since there was a pointed object on my left side of my stomach.  They took my bag and  jewelries but am still blessed  since they didn't get my money in my blazer's pocket so I was able to get home. I did feel awkward and frightened at the same time LOL.

Beats mine! My ex & I signed up our son with the archrival of the organization I ran (like Roger Clemens going from the Sox to the Yankees). The coach & his wife were talking to us and we talked about this woman that was a real cancer on my team when my son was 7 and she assisted with the coach-pitch team that her son was also on. She was also our son's scout leader and was a real b!+ch because she would advance her son for NOT doing the skills and "losing" our son's awards & beltloops he actually earned! Well, they piped in, trying to one-up us, talking about this mother that was a real piece of work and they literally kicked the kid off the team because of HER. We had a good laugh over all of it, until we realized we were talking about the same woman! Awkward gave way to downright roll-on-the-ground gut-splitting laughter and all of the other parents thought we were either drunk or nuts.

Last year, she & her husband were finally busted by the scout council for their transgressions and kicked out, so I guess things turn out after a time.

I did that with Bob, the maintenance guy at my job.  He called me Karen for the longest time.  At first I just thought I heard him wrong since he kinda mumbles, but eventually it became apparent that he had no idea what my name was, and I didn't correct him.  

He eventually found out when someone else was talking about me and he put two and two together.  He got mad that I didn't tell him, but I said I thought it was just a fun little thing we had going, and I was going to start calling him Harold.

Especially with these a**holes on the bluetooth, and you can't even see it, so really, how are you to know?  Oh god, that's a classic.  

Or someone looks like they're waving to you, so you wave back, when really they're waving to someone next to you or behind you.  Then you try to make it like you were just stretching, or waving to someone else next to/behind that person who initially waved.  Yep, I know all about awkward moments.  This is seriously my poll.

Guilty of all of the above. Although, have had people come up to me, tell me their life's story like I've known them all their lives and after they leave, my now-ex-wife asks, "Who was that?", I throw up my hands and say I have no f'ing clue - never met them before in my life! I figure I inherited my mother's spirit, because people did that to her, too, and to her dying breath never knew those people that came up to her like she was their priest at confessional. LMAO

for a while i was saying "hold yer wad," to people at church work thinking it was a gambling/money wad. the senior pastor sat me in his office one day to explain to me what i was saying and why it's not appropriate to say to elderly parishoners.

i say something costs so-and-so "ducks" a lot. it's my mouth trying to be cool and say "bucks" and my brain saying "you're not that cool, say 'dollars.'" i also say "floot roops" instead of "froot loops."

i was in the band in middle school, high school and college.

Ok....picture this.  You're walking down the street, a busy street, and someone is walking towards you right in your path.  As you get closer, you must decide whether to juke right or cut left (yes, I picture myself as Walter Payton when this scenario takes place).  It's ALWAYS awkward when the other person goes the same direction.  Sometimes I'll try the Ickey Shuffle (quickly going the other way) and they usually end up going the same way again. 

Also, I was back living with the rents the summer after my freshman year of college.  Anyways, my folks were supposed to be up in Wisconsin for a weekend that summer, so I invited an ex over.  Well as my incredible luck would have it, my folks came back a night early because of some unknown reason.  Words can't describe how awkward it is when your old man walks in on you nailing the ex, especially when it's on the living room sofa.  

Last but not least, when someone copilots you in the bathroom at work.  I have no problem dropping the kids off in public places, but damn, man!  There's eight other stalls that aren't right next to me.

Up until that post, I've never seen her say that, and HE hasn't said anything one way or the other since she explained why she does it. He probably hasn't even seen it yet.

Getting caught picking your nose in traffic is pretty bad as well.  Look around the next time you're at a stoplight.  Chances are you'll see someone digging for gold.

To avoid the awkward hi or wave, I decided several years ago to wave back and say hello back proudly, if anyone out in public does that in my general direction with the pure intent of putting the awkwardness back on them.  It confuses the s**t out of people you're with if they've never seen you do it which is another bonus

 WHEN YOU HAVE TO BE 5 INCHES AWAY TO READ WHAT PPLE WROTE YOU SURE DONT WANT TO BE THAT CLOSE TO THE SCREEN WHILE YOU TRY TO TYPE ON THE KEYBOARD( WITH EYES THAT HAVE CATARACTS) AND LETTERS YOU CANT SEE TO TYPE ... IT LOOKS PRETTY FUNNY SCRUNCHED UP ALL THE TIME   JUST TO TYPE TO PPL NOT TO MENTION PAINFUL  AND WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT HOW PPL  BTW  SINCE WHEN IS TYPING IN IN CAPS AGAINST THE LAW   TYPE AND I DID NOT KNOW THERE WAS A TYPING POLICE IN HERE IF THAT THE CASE GIVE ME A MUDT TICKET OR JUST DEAL WITH IT  
FYI
MUDT MEANS (IN LARGE CAPS)
M=MESSED  
U=UP 
D=DRIVING 
T=TYPING

Ok....picture this.  You're walking down the street, a busy street, and someone is walking towards you right in your path.  As you get closer, you must decide whether to juke right or cut left (yes, I picture myself as Walter Payton when this scenario takes place).  It's ALWAYS awkward when the other person goes the same direction.  Sometimes I'll try the Ickey Shuffle (quickly going the other way) and they usually end up going the same way again. 

Also, I was back living with the rents the summer after my freshman year of college.  Anyways, my folks were supposed to be up in Wisconsin for a weekend that summer, so I invited an ex over.  Well as my incredible luck would have it, my folks came back a night early because of some unknown reason.  Words can't describe how awkward it is when your old man walks in on you nailing the ex, especially when it's on the living room sofa.  

Last but not least, when someone copilots you in the bathroom at work.  I have no problem dropping the kids off in public places, but damn, man!  There's eight other stalls that aren't right next to me.        
when this happens with a woman I reply " thank you for the dance"

Bringing up the spiderweb motion you have listed above, I always hated it when walking down a hallway behind my taller friend, and somehow he misses the darn thing, and I get caught in it.

Not so much an awkward moment for me, but back when I worked 2 jobs, my part time was maintenance for a mall. At the time, my wife worked for customer service in the same mall.  A fellow employee, an older filipino lady, started bad-mouthing my wife, saying she was a mean person, making me work 2 jobs, etc.  She was going on and on about how I deserved someone better than my wife.  Somebody like her.     

She didn't know my wife at all.  How dare she make such claims about my wife.    Alas, the person she was talking to about my wife was my wife.

 That awkward moment when you're out shopping with your husband and you're reading a nutritional facts on a label or something and start talking to him - only to realize the man beside you is some other guy and your husband has wandered into a different aisle.

That awkward moment when you're out shopping with your husband and you disappear behind a rack of shoes or into a different aisle, and you go back (while looking at your new treasure you just picked up), walk up to him and start caressing his back only to realize your husband has also wandered off and you're touching some stranger.

(thanks for reminding me about those, Odd)

These are the reasons why I don't really get embarrassed a whole lot anymore.

Also, one other time in high school I had an awkward moment.  My junior year, I was walking to my next class and I saw my friend walking to his class. As we passed eachother, he bumped me and i fell right into a trash can, and I mean like I was folded into it. Eventually I wrangled my way out as I realized that I was just feet from my next class. I had to walk through everyone standing around laughing, right into class where more people were staring and giggling.  I guess it was more embarrassing than awkward. But i'm sure it was awkward for my classmates.

Living in Atlanta, and sitting by the North Ave. MARTA station waiting for my bus, a deaf guy sat down next to me and wanted to talk/write on his notebook. Used to the homeless guys or people asking for money, he didn't want any, just conversation.

Learned about how he became deaf and had a kid and some other stuff, wasn't really getting a weird vibe, then a Leo DiCaprio headshot fell out of his notebook. He changed the subject to him and how much he loved Leo, and asked if I had ever met him, then talk about his love for him again and what a nice body he has...I had to still wait for the bus with no where to really go.

For the first one ... I always just say that the child is "breathtaking", and it's being completely honest.    

(They don't need to know it's because I'm gasping at the sight of a child that ugly.)

Now I just keep responding to you.  Whatever, everyone will get over it...

I say "you dance divinely" and get the same odd looks.  I'm used to them and all, but still, I think it's mildly funny.

 I asked a lady when the baby was due, and it wasn't.
I was supposed to meet some friends at a commuter lot. I went to the wrong one and no one was there so I called and found out it was the next lot. I threw the cell on the seat and peeled out , yelling at myself all the way to the right one . When I got there my friends were all laughing there asses off because my phone was still on and they heard everything.
