Re: Awkward Moments Define My Life

Today during English class we were in a circle for discussion, and a guy near me fell asleep, so the girl next to him poked him, and he thought it was some sort of weird game they were playing because class was so boring.

Oh, something totally awkward happened to me this morning. I was sitting with a bunch of people before school, like I always do. They're thos people who are your friends, but you don't know them well enough that you do much outside of school. So anyway, they started talking about this party thing they're doing instead of going to Homecoming. So they're all going on about how they're going to dress in weird costumes and such, and the one girl says "Some one should dress as Alton Brown!" (Chef on food network for anyone wondering) so I'm like "He's totally awesome." Then other girl says "He IS totally awesome. You could dress as Alton Brown! Except I don't think you're invited." Yeah completely, totally, utterly awkward.

Re: Awkward Moments Define My Life

When your mom tells you to wake up and you say 'The midgets aren't friends with tall people any more.' and she laughs at you, asking what that bunch of nonsense, was, but instead of agreeing that it was nonsense, you prove that you had a logical explanation by trying to explain why you said it and making the matters worse by saying that midgets are actaully Dwarves and Humans are elves, and then your mom sends you back to bed.

Re: Awkward Moments Define My Life

I narrowly escaped an awkward moment yesterday...My church leader always goes in for a pound or a high-five instead of a handshake, and I mess it up all the time. Yesterday he saw me, slapped me on the arm and walked away, but when he came back he went in for a pound. And I surprisingly didn't mess it up! Yay!!

I walked into the church meeting like 20 minutes late though, and everyone turned around and stared at me.

Re: Awkward Moments Define My Life

Haha!! I think awkward moments make up at least 5% of my life.

Most of those things in the original list have happened to me, unfortunately... I have some to add, though:

- A guy whom I really don't like in any way asked me for my number... with my mother standing right there... I was incredibly tired, and not feeling good, and I could not think how to respond, and I nearly started crying cause I was so tired and bewildered. Then he said "because my mom wants to talk to your mom about something". Then I felt REALLY stupid, but I was so relieved he wasn't asking me out I didn't care.

- Another time, someone who was giving me a ride home was going to call my parents to tell them we were going to be late... I accidentally gave him my friend's phone number instead of mine... Wow, that was embarrassing.

- Then, of course there's all the times when I mishear something someone said, and I respond with something totally unrelated...

- I tend to find things funny that no one else does, so a lot of times, I'll start laughing really hard at something, and no one else will be... and I'll be laughing too hard to explain what's so funny.

LOL! I do that all the time.. maybe because I'm sort of a slow typer.

That happened to me just the other day... sigh. I hate it.

Have you ever just randomly, and for no apparent reason completely forgotten your own phone number??? I wasn't tired or anything like that, I just forgot it... It also doesn't help that my home phone and my mom's cell are extremely similar.

I also just remembered a time when I was about 6 or 7, and for some reason I decided to apell the word grey on the phone in my parents room, so I dialed... it would be 4-7-2-9 I guess, and some person answered, and I freaked out and screamed into the phone, then dropped it on the floor. I was a weird child...

Oh YES! I've done that before... lol, it's so embarrassing... I've also forgotten other random bits of very important information, sometimes for only a few seconds, sometimes longer.... I forgot my own birthday once. And just a couple months ago, someone asked me how old I was, and I could not for the life of me remember. I had to take a couple seconds to count up... for some odd reason, I wanted to say I was thirteen (I'm sixteen)

Re: Awkward Moments Define My Life

Well there was the one really awkward moment when my friend's mom asked me if I was involved in some activity at my high school and I said yes, even though I'm not involved in that in ny way at all!!! I felt like such an idiot!! So then I rambled on about well I sort of am, I was going to be, but then I had too many conflicts, so I might be later, and such. Oh, God, so embarassing.

Re: Awkward Moments Define My Life

Haha I love this thread. I'm such an awkward person, too!

I was standing by my bestfriend's locker, and I saw a dollar fall to the floor, and I assumed it was hers, so I picked it up, and as a joke I dropped it down her shirt... and, of course, she turned bright red, looked at me and said "Ali, that wasn't my dollar." She had to reach down her shirt and give it to the girl beside her while I laughed extremely awkwardly. The girl just looked at me like I was insane.

Ahahaha...I hate that. I was talking to one of my friends about how much I hate when that happens to me, and then two minutes later, he does it to me. I looked like such an idiot, ranting to myself.

that and tripping on nothing are my two most embaressing occurances.

#19 happened a lot. I used to work at a theater and when I'd say "enjoy the movie" they'd say "you too." though I think it was a mutual embaressment. I knew they were embaressed so I felt embaressed for them lol.

Also one of the most embaressing things that has happened to me happened a couple years ago at school. I had lost touch with one of my friends throughout the years and we had just began talking again. One day I was walking one way down the hall and she was walking with some friends from the opposite way(we were walking towards each other), and right before we were going to pass each other and say hi(we had already made eye contact), a door swung open infront of me from a classroom and I ran into it face first. and might I add the hall was full of people when that happened haha.

Re: Awkward Moments Define My Life

Yeah...

When I was getting my driver's license, I accidentally put on the form, Height : 6'9''. (I'm 5'9'') So I walk over to the guy who's supposed to give me my eye test, and he looks over my form, pauses for an awkward silence, then goes, "You really don't look 6'9'' to me."

*blush blush*

I practically whipped the form out of his hands so I could correct it. As if the DMV isn't bad enough already... *groan*

Re: Awkward Moments Define My Life

I don't think this has been mentioned yet, but walking down the hall, and it's crowded, and your hand accidentaly touches someone's *ahem* behind. That happened to me today, but thankfully I don't think they noticed.

Re: Awkward Moments Define My Life

Hahaha, when I was younger, like 10, I was terrified of going outside after dark. I thought someone would kidnap me (Someone did try to kidnap me when I was 3, so I've always been scared of it happening!)...but this one time my mom made me take out the trash at like 11 at night and while I was putting the bags in the garbage cans, this car pulled right up next to the curb and stopped. So naturally, I thought they were kidnappers and I ran inside the house and began locking all the doors. And then there was a knock at the door and my mom answered it...it was her friend from work. They both started laughing at me.

I had those three happen to me -- it was very embarrassing ...

I have another one to add to the list -- * sit down on a bench and get some soda or other liquid on the seat of your pants -- I had that happen to me once when I was waiting to go home from school, it was rather embarrassing.

It's always so funny when you mishear and end up interpreting wildly different things than originally intended. The resulting conversations can be pretty hilarious as well. I've had that happen so many times...

Re: Awkward moments define my life

When I get nervous, I tend to do stupid things. For example, I went to a job interview once, and the lady gave me her mail to bear down on while I was writing and I walked out with it! I had to take it back and apologize.
