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.
Whoa, that is embarrassing! At least he meant it as a compliment, right?

My Aunt and Uncle moved to my town from a different state when I was in 9th grade and one of my cousins is the same age as me. We're exactly 3 months apart.
We got on very well for a while, he was one of my best friends in fact. So it wasn't really unusual that we'd hang out in the hallways at school or sit next to each other in class and talk quietly. Junior year, a teacher was calling roll on the first day of class and called out my name first and his right after (cause we have the same last name)...
and after we both said "Here." He looked up at us strangely and he seriously asked, "Are you married?" *ShockHorror* We were both completely shocked and somewhat disturbed.

Re: Awkward moments define my life

That's crazy!!!!

Once when my cousin was visiting we were at one of those " *insert town name here* Days" parties, and there was this ride that I didn't want to go on, so my cousin and brother went alone. They are only 10 weeks apart, and we're all really close, and the ride operator asked if they were dating. I thought it was pretty hilarious.

Re: Your Worst Tonks-esque Moment

I was at the park one time with my friend Karen and her family. We were running, I had flipflops on, and the ground was muddy. I tripped over my flipflops(amazing how that happens)and fell down in the mud. My skirt, feet, arms, and legs were all covered in mud. And to make things worse Karen's family was watching. Yep I'm a clutz.

Re: Your Worst Tonks-esque Moment

okay, i was around ten, and my brothers, sister, and the neighbor kid were jumping over this bush. i tried it, and at first i made it. the second go-round...well, my foot kinda got caught in the bush, and the next thing i know, total faceplant--dirt and grass eating, maybe a worm up my nose, the works. it was so embarrassing (and it hurt, too! ), and no one in my family will ever let me forget it...after almost six years....

Re: Your Worst Tonks-esque Moment

sigh...last night i walked into the bathroom and somehow managed to fall into the bath, hitting my head on the way
Also i manage to fall UP the stairs at least once a day rather than down...
In college the other day i was really tired and went to sit on a chair, but it was one with wheels and as i went to sit on it with my bag still on my bag pused the chair away and i ended up on the floor.....
the other day i had to put some eyeliner on for a drama production and i accidentally grabbed some lip gloss stuff and put it on my eyes i was again really tired as you can imagine....
in high school i was swinging on my chair and this 'Mr young and handsome' teacher who was a supply came to my rescue as i swang to hard and was just about to hit the floor...he caught me and sat me back on my chair i was embarrassed.....

Re: Your Worst Tonks-esque Moment

About a yar and a half ago, I was moving out of my dormitory into my apartment, and I had just had a huge fight with my boyfriend about when and how to pack things (stupid, I know).
I had this huge box of stuff, and I was going down the stairs (I lived on the third floor, and the elevator was broken. Again.), when my foot hit this rough spot on the step, and I went flying down. My things ended landing EVERYWHERE (Did I mention that the steps were on the OUTSIDE of the building?), and I hit my nose on the way down.
While my nose didn't break (the soft cartilage between my eyes is what got bruised), I felt like I couldn't breathe for a month without whimpering in pain. And to make it worse, I had a cold, so my nose was also stuffy, and I kept sneezing! My boyfriend felt so bad about my hurt, though, that he did carry the rest of the stuff out for me!

In front of all the teachers,...who were slient as they werent seeing anyone at the time so they were all staring at me. then to make it worse, i went to get a chair, and the chair got stuck on another, so i ended up bringing down the stack of chairs- in front of all the teachers. i must say, i couldn't stop laughing, nor keep a straight face as my teacher was talking to me.

Re: Your Worst Tonks-esque Moment

Oh dear, I'm supposed to pick a worst?? I have Tonks-esque moments 24/7!!!

I guess the worst has to be one time at work, we were extremely busy. It was right after a football game, and we had both teams come to eat along with plenty of spectators. Normally, we were slip-resistant shoes, but I chose to come in and help and just had my tennis shoes. I was going to get a basket of fries and slipped on some grease and went flying. I hit my head on a trash can, etc. I had a hot fry basket in my hand too, so I just concentrated on it not hitting my face. ANd it was in front of at least 100 people. Its hilarious now though.

And another time I was talking to a co-worker and had just taken a hot basket of fries out of the fryer, and instead of replacing it, I placed on my elbow, not very smart.

Re: Your Worst Tonks-esque Moment

I'm always tripping up or stumbling around because I trip over my feet but the time it was really, really embarrassing was when I was rushing down a street in London because it was the Order of the Pheonix premiere and I there was a hole in the road and I tripped and fell flat on my face and bruised the whole right side of my body and neck! :\

Re: Awkward moments define my life

Here's my most awkward moment of the weekoh yeah,i make sure I get embarassed atleast once a week!)

Anyways, my friends and I had went to this mall..and we went in to look at some clothes in a trendy shop...My friends were looking at one of the outfits and I was standing beside them...Suddenly,a man(I think he's British from his accent , not sure)...called me..and I was like,maybe he's just gonna enquire about the shop and how it was...but he pulled out an outfit and said"The price-tag isn't here...can you tell me what the actual price is?"...I just stared at him...and then he said"Oh, you don't work here...!!!!"I was so embarassed I wished I could evaporate from there!!!!!!!!!!All of my friends satrted giggling too...and THAT DIDN'T HELP!!Anyway the man was like'I'm sorry....my fault...I always mess up things like this..."...and I was like *TOO LATE *...of course I didnt say that...but pretended like it didnt matter and said 'Oh,no problem"...but I guess he understood...and even after he walked off...he came back and said "Sorry again"...anyways i was so embarassed and my friends wouldn't let me forget it in a hurry either...lol...but atleast the guy was nice...

Re: Awkward moments define my life

1. Walked down the hall and someone you know is really far away but you dont want to make eye contact too soon yet you dont want to miss it so you look at them then look away..
2. Gone in for a hug and had your arms the wrong way or your heads both go the same direction then you bump heads
3. Kept bumping in to someone... they walk right you walk right, they walk left you walk left etc.
4. Messed up a high five; there are many ways to do this believe me... high fived it when they went for a pound. high fived someone when they ment to highfive the person BEHIND you and so on.
5. Waved to someone when they were waving to someone behind you


8. Awkward silences.
9. Calling somones name when its not them.
10. Calling someones name and they dont hear you so everyone stares at you when you look like your talking to yourself
11. Awkward conversations in general
12. Stuck talking to someone and you both slowly start walking different ways
13. Saying bye and then walking the same way as that person



17. Having a hole in your pants
18. Joining in on a random conversation followed by stares

20. Talking about someone and then realizing they are right benind/next to you!
21. And best of all you just love to make awkward smiles in pictures.
22. Told a joke that no one laughed at (or one that only YOU thought was funny)

25. Sang REALLY loud and then someone changes the station or whatnot leaving you singing REALLY loud for a second or two..
26. Being in a different country where they dont speak english and saying something about someone and they understand you


...someone's hand flies out and hits you in an awkward place.

Huh, hefty list

Re: Awkward moments define my life

Awkward moments define my moments.
Seniors at my school are allowed to go to the shopping centre at lunch, and sometimes I will go grab something to eat and then come back to the Senior Centre to study. Today I bought a Big M and a bag of bagel chips, and both of them were too big for my tiny, tiny hands, plus my extremely sensitive leather wallet, so I asked for a shopping bag at the supermarket.
I then had the most conspicuous walk back to the school, because I looked like I had gone grocery shopping, and people were staring at me.
I only noticed this because I dont actually like the people at my school, so it struck me as odd that I felt so awkward.
Blerp.

Re: Awkward moments define my life

On several occasions I"ve tried getting out of the car with my seatbelt still on.

Or I get into the shower with some item of clothing still on. Usually a bra or a hairband or something. I'm like, "this feels wrong..."

Or if I get my hair cut and people say "You got your hair done!" and I automatically answer "Yeah, thanks!" Wait, they didn't compliment me at all...

Or pretending you've heard what someone has said to you and then they have a follow up question like "so what do you think?". Then you have to admit that in fact you don't no what they've said in the first place.

Hairdresser talking to you while she's blowdrying your hair so you have a shouting conversation but you're left shouting when she turns it off.

People coming in to where I work and presuming I'm foreign and they start talking to me in (insert foreign language here) and I'm like "Whoa whoa, heh, dunno what you're saying". Embarrassing all round.

Having a tag hanging off the back of my new top all day! With nobody telling me!

Re: Your Worst Tonks-esque Moment

I had a Tonks-esque moment at the library today: I was trying to put back this one book back on the shelf, I accidently knocked half of the books to the floor, so they ended up in one big heap. Thank god they were all paperbacks!
