Re: Awkward moments define my life

Haha most of them have happened to me. I always seem to call people names that aren't theirs, what's really bad is when you call your teacher 'mum' by accident, that's REALLY awkward, haha. Another one is sending personal msn or text messages to the people they weren't inteded for, especially when they're people who'll get offended by it or else think you're a completely mad freak.

Re: Awkward moments define my life

I am a major klutz!!!! I break anything and everything. I have broken everything in my house including my left leg... my left arm and my nose.. I also trip at the most unfortunate moments. Recently when I was having lunch with my friends and we were staring and making fun of this couple who were overtly affectionate to the point to being annoying. So anyway while leaving the guy looked at me and I kinda lost it! I started laughing right there and then I tripped and fell right under their table. My friends who are vicious, went and advertised this everyone I know! This was a classic moment that defines my inappropriate and klutzy 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.
Kinda the same...I walked out of the chapel in church with a hymnbook one time. Had to bring it back in while everyone laughed.

Ever told your teacher you loved her on accident? I have! She was hugging us all goodbye at the end of the year...I forgot who she was, said "bye mom, love you!" and nearly kissed her cheek! I was SOOO embarassed. My friend's saw it and I got a few raised eyebrows.

Yesterday's awkward moment:

I am not sporty. It's just not going to happen. I can catch, throw, and hike...that's it. So when my church's "halloween carnival" turned out to be mud pudding with earthworms and a game of volleyball I should've left right then. I'm stupid, though, so I didn't. It wasn't pretty. The volleyball scares the **** outta me (I'm scared it will hit me and break my face), I dodge. Not the best way to impress the guys on your team!

Right with you on that one. You should've seen me in gym class. Horrible. Baseball was the worst. I just couldn't hit the thing. Kickball, too. Guess I'm not so coordinated in that area. Also this weird sort of tennis we played. I was terrible at that, too. Volleyball, yeah, I'm pretty much the same. I'd call it, then see it actually coming at me, freak, and let it drop, then my team would get all angry at me. I can run, bike, rock climb, and that's about it.

Same sort of thing happened to me today. We were playing Wiffle ball (Is that how you spell it?) anyway the person hitting got out on a fly and I had taken a few steps off the base (I'm way bad at getting to a base if I don't start when the ball does.) so the person that caught the fly fields it to first where I was supposed to tag up. Gratefully the guy playing first misses it. HOwever he was standing on the base so I pretty much shoved him off and I shoved in an awkward way. Yeah it doesn't really help that the guy has such an ego that he makes anything awkward...

Re: Awkward moments define my life

I'm really clumsy too... I'm tall so if I have to get up to go to the blackboard I have to unfold my leg over my backpack (often hitting my leg on my desk) put it down, stagger up (tripping/hitting my chair), take my other leg out from under the desk and over the chair (twisting my leg or banging something/someone/the desk behind) then I'm out and I've gotta walk up the aisle to the blackboard with out falling down

Does that make sense

The other thing about me is, seeing as speak French in France, is I often make mistakes in front of the whole class. And if I speak loudly everyone hears, so I speak really quietly and nobody hears/understands why me??

Re: Awkward moments define my life

Awkward and/or clumsy moments are my LIFE!

I used to work in a grocery store, and I had to go put the returns back on the shelves. I managed to locate where everything went except for this one stupid jar of chopped garlic. I found bottles of diced garlic, but that is considered a completely different thing. I tend to talk to myself or objects around me when I think no one can hear me, so I was wandering around the store talking to this jar and telling it how I couldn't find its 'home'. Eventually, I got so annoyed I went back to the diced garlic jars, put the jar I had with them and said "There. This is your home. You're adopted. Deal with it," then I turned around....and realized the customers could hear me talking the entire time and a few where staring at me.

I'm also terrible over the phone. I always write out exactly what I plan on saying before I even think of dialing hte number, because I know if I don't, most of the conversation will be awkward silence. My friend always says "This is awkward....I'm just going to hang up now..." and I'll laugh nervously in response.

And there's plenty more where that came from...

Hahahaha, to the talking to the garlic. That's great.

I do the phone thing too!!! I thought I was the only one, . I have this guy who's kind of a friend, kinda not...but whenever he calls it is always so awkward. He always asks when he can come over and I tell him when is good and then there's this really long awkward silence before we're both like, "uh...ok...bye."

Re: Awkward moments define my life

Oh man. The other day I was chatting to my friend on MSN and I wasn't really paying attention and I thought he asked me out, so I went into this lengthy explanation about how I wasn't really dating at all right now, and he replies back with "I wasn't asking you out." I was like "oops." then he starts asking all this stuff like "how come you said no?" and stuff..
Aw it was so incredibly embarrassing.

Re: Awkward moments define my life

A few years ago, I was walking home with a friend, and a grasshopper jumped in my shirt! I screamed twice: when it jumped in and when it jumped out. My friend, on the other hand, wouldn't stop laughing at me!

But my all time most embarassing moment happened more than once. I had something horrible happen to me and it happened three days in a row! I won't say it on here, but whenever I tell my friends, they tell me their embarassing moment isn't nearly as bad.

Oh I'm constatnly talking to random inanimate objects, especially my school supplies. Like if I have some notebooks piled on a desk and they fall off or something, I'll just turn to them and say, "You know what? Fine! Be that way, see if I care!" Then I pick them up. I do that a lot in band when my music falls, and one day I was talking to my friend who sits next to me, and we were having a discussion aobut something or other, and I was disagreeing with him, so he says something, just as my music falls off the stand so I yell at the music, only my friend thought I was talking to him!! I had to explain that no, I wasn't angry, and yes, I really was yelling at my music. It ended pretty much with Him: Me:

Re: Awkward moments define my life

I don't usually make it a habit of yelling at inanimate objects. But I did once...

My family vacation to southern Utah this year. Me, my sisters, my brother in law, and my friend hiked up Angel's Landing in Zion's National Park. It's only a 5 mile trail, but it's nearly straigh up...I think you gain somewhere around 1500 ft in the last 3 miles. So it's a pretty strenuous trail. (That is necessary to know ) So we finally got to the top, our Camel backs are nearly empty (and we still have to go back down!), and we all sit right on the edge of the cliff and look out at the view, exhausted. Then all of a sudden, the rock my foot is sitting on moves and falls down to the canyon floor...which caused my foot to jerk down. And I just randomly look over the edge and yell, "HEY!!" at the rock. I blame it on being tired from the hike. My friend still makes fun of me for it.

EDIT: As of yesterday (November 10th), I have a new Awkward. My mom and me went to wal-mart to buy some vegetables for tonight's dinner and we decided to pick up some egg nog too. So I'm holding the egg nog and it's getting kinda heavy, so I switch it from my right hand to my left. And somewhere in between switching hands, it drops and egg nog splatters all over the floor. And my mom starts laughing and goes, "Clean up in the meat aisle!!" really loudly. And then we turn around and this guy that works there is standing right there glaring at us. He told me to go get another and he'd clean it up. It was SO embarassing!

Re: Awkward moments define my life

This thread really helps me vent... Anyway so this kid I met at a youth program over the summer that I've been IMing came down to visit me today. I was looking forward to seeing him. So, we'd been talking on IM and I'll admit that I'd pull the random "brb" when the conversation was going nowhere, but I thought once I was talking to him in person it'd be easier. I don't think I can tell you how wrong I was... It was horrendously awkward. It didn't help that my little sister kept running in and out of the room either. I swear younger siblings are there just to make things more awkward.

LOL this has happened to me! ALso in high school one time I was late for class and I was running up the stairs not paying attention and I was holding onto the railing (I have fallen down/up way too many stairs not to) and I was about to grab the next rail when some guy pushed by me and I accidentally grabbed his crotch. Worse yet it was my sister's ex boyfriend who hated her and me by extension, so he glared really hard and I squeaked my bad and literally ran for it.

This is awkward for other people but not to me. Since my oldest son was born I have talked to him like an adult. I carry converstaions with him and have done so since he was just born. I do it with my second child as well, and I will say things at the store, for example, like "Hmm what should we have for dinner Will? Chicken? Nah steak would be better huh? Oh you think we should get some mashed potatoes, yeah that is a good idea, thanks for the suggestion" People always stare at me like I am nuts but I don't really care.

Once I went to the doctor with my son and we had been waiting forever and I was totally into my mommy role and so when the doctor came in he had something on his face and instead of just telling him I licked my finger and cleaned it off his face without a second thought until I noticed the look on his face. I wanted to die.

I laugh at my own jokes all the time even when no one else does. Then while they are staring at me all weird I usually bust out with come on you KNOW that was funny you just think you are too cool to laugh.

When I don't know all the words to songs I just mumble the ones I don't know and act like I do, it might not trick people but it makes me feel better lol.

Re: Awkward moments define my life

I was at the store once with my mom and newborn baby sister...I think I was thirteen...my mom left to get something, and I was left with the baby. Some woman walked by (my luck with a daughter about my age) and she gave me a look and whispered to her daughter right in front of me...I realized why she staring at me and (in my defense) "She's my baby sister!"...they didn't listen to me.

AWKWARD....

Once I didn't have my glasses on and I started yelling at my cat, Merlin who was on my dresser...my mom broke the news to me after my yelling that it wasn't Merlin, but my little hawk statue. Well, with 20/300 vision, I guess stuff like this will continue to happen to me.

Don't you hate it when people assume stuff like that?? I do!

I guess I don't look nineteen at all. The other day the woman doing my nails thought I was like 16 or 17, but people also tell me I look older. It gets confusing.

But the worst is when I was buying Christmas presents for my cousins (age 4, 6, 9, and 10)...the woman bagging the stuff asked if I wanted it in a dark colored bag so my kids wouldn't see through it. She thought I was old enough to have a 10 year old!!! *Shocked Speechless*

And another time, with three of the same cousins (age 4, 6, and 10) I was sitting for them overnight and had to take them to school. They live right across the street and down the hill from the school and it was a nice day, so we walked over. The crossing guard and the other mothers at the school thought they were mine.

Another time, I had them in the store with me, and the oldest asked the cashier if she had any of those free suckers they give out to kids...she handed them each one and held one out to me and said, "Does mom want one too?". The kids thought it was hilarious.

I guess it probably doesn't help my case that they call me mommy sometimes. But they don't usually do that in public, just when they want to play house or something.
And I have been told that I act very mature for my age...but honestly!

At nineteen, nearly twenty, I really don't want people thinking that the 10 year old boy is mine!! Although, he doesn't look 10...he could easily pass for 7 or younger with how tiny he is, but still, it's annoying when people just assume stuff like that!!

Another awkward thing that always happens to me is in church...I'm shy so I don't usually talk to other people if I haven't met them yet. So whenever I meet someone new, they always ask, "Are you new to the area?". And each time they are shocked when I say I've lived here my entire life and have been in their church for almost 2 years. That one is my fault tho...I'm trying to be more outgoing and meeting new people.

Something sort of like that happened to me once. My brother used to be in Boy Scouts, and every summer for 3 or 4 years he and my dad would go on these scouting trips for like a week, so while they were gone my mom and I would go stay in Chicago for a few days. My uncle used to live in Chicago, and so one year we invited him to have dinner with us. American Girl Place, which I'm sure was not at all his first pick, but I think he still had fun. Anyway, as we were leaving there was a man out on the street trying to sell things, I forget what, but he started talking to us and telling us what a lovely family we made, and how much I looked like my parents. He thought my mom and uncle were married!! They were pretty embarassed.
