post yr awkward moments!


That awkward moment when you're belting at the top of your lungs with your earphones in because you think you're home alone, and then your family member walks in the door. (This both ensures embarrassment AND a heart attack.)

That awkward moment when you're Skyping with someone but you've forgotten, and walk in front of your computer in various states of undress.

That awkward moment when a customer asks me to look at some great used car they own immediately after they bought it, and I have to gently tell them they bought a worn out piece.

That awkward moment after some customer, co-worker, or who ever asks me what my religion is, I say I'm atheist, they pause and say something like, "Oh, I'm sorry to hear that." and I have to respond with, "It's a point of view, not a terminal disease."

That awkward moment when someone is talking to you but you're not listening to them because you're thinking about how much you want to punch them in the face but then they ask you a question about what they were talking about and you don't know how to respond because you were pre-occupied with fantasies of face-punching.

That awkward moment when you fall asleep early and then wake up a few hours later and think it's the next day and that you slept in so you actually call work and apologize for being late, and they have to gently tell you that it's 9pm Sunday and not 9am Monday

That awkward moment when you make an off color joke around someone you thought you really knew and they are completely thrown off by it, especially awkward when said person is also your boss...

That awkward moment of really belting it out in the shower cause you figure the sound of the shower itself will drown it out along with the walls, and then your roomies mention how lovely your singing voice is when you get out...

That awkward moment when you're getting rid of a body and the police show up because you left your hazard lights on your car while you were parked on the side of the road next to your local body of water....

That sounds hilarious.

I guess this is relevant: I was at Goodwill and there was some bitch coupling of a daughter and mother and they were looking at bras/underwear. I walked over and began to look at the underwear. They became noticeably discomforted. I worked my way quickly around the circular display of lingerie until I was right next to the mother. She whispered something to her daughter, looked at me in disgust, and walked away quickly. I couldn't help but start laughing. It was a good day, because I found a great pair of boy-shorts (wearing them now) and a black lingerie onesie. I also found Spooky by Lush on cassette for 50 cents.

Skirts are kind of neat. Don't be afraid of 'em Fuzzy T. You feel exposed but you get used to it.

Also that awkward moment when you go to shake hands with someone and then realise they have a broken hand/arm and you feel all weird and then shake their left hand instead and it just kind of doesn't work and you're both left feeling awkward.

Also: failed high fives. Every time it happens I feel like I want to die.

And the person that walks by see it in 3 seconds? I hate that :(

I work at Blockbuster and I do this to people on a daily basis, the amount of times they ask me to find a DVD they can't find and I walk back with it 2 seconds later, they always just laugh though and say they must be blind for not seeing it. It's more just that I know where absolutely everything is unfortunately.

I find it really awkward when I can't remember someone's name, but you've known each other too long to ask for it again. So you try everything to get around it, simply replying to them as anything but their name. I again have this with regular customers who I can't for the life of me remember their names so after a lengthy conversation I have to awkwardly ask 'what's your name again, sorry?' when attempting to find their account.

Everyone always remembers me at stores or restaurants that I go to, even if I haven't been there in over a month, but I never remember any of them. I feel so bad that I'm apparently great at making an impression but I can't remember anyone I've only ever met once ;_;

I remember the ones who are awesome. If you're just another customer, then no, I'm not gonna waste time trying to remember who you are.

When you're a server, you remember your regulars, because when you address them personally and go out of the way for them, you get better tips.

Plus, it's just lovely. :)

That awkward moment when you complain about your arms hurting from carrying shopping then a man walks by with no arms and thinks you're an ass.
