57. Not knowing which camera to look at

“Alright guys, gather up! We’re going to take a picture!” And that’s the call. People begin to scramble looking for the first camera to pose for, and then the whole crowd begins to get together for the camera pose. A confusing time indeed; you have the really tall people, and the short ones, the big ones and the small ones trying to…

53. Offering a handshake that goes unnoticed

First of all, I don’t understand that picture I found on the internet. Wet fish hands, like when someone’s hands are wet and stinky? Hmm.. that would make sense. Cool, I think I get it. I’d like you to think of a time that you were introduced to someone. Usually they offer a handshake, which you take unless you’re sick…

34. Getting locked out of your home

I lived in the dorms in my early college years. That’s where I gained a ton of friends and got to know many students. I spent two years and one summer living in a 250-resident building, sharing five toilets and 4 showers with 45 other students. Yeah, it sounds cool but its not as awesome as what I was able…

28. Bumping into an ex

(ex-boyfriend, ex-girlfriend, ex-husband, ex-wife, ex-best friend, ex-boss, etc.) ..when you’re with your new partner, while you’re with your parents, when you’re out buying feminine hygiene items, when you aren’t dressed your best, when she’s with someone new, when you can’t avoid each other and are forced to speak, catching up and finding out that he’s actually happy. . . the list goes…

26. Tripping and falling

You would assume that after living for a while, a person might at least be skilled in something called walking. And its true, over the years we’ve gotten better and better at walking (with few exceptions). So it is natural to feel uncomfortable when someone falls in public. This is one of those double-sided awkward moments, in which the person…

23. When someone has a booger

While in a comment conversation with Bee, an important question was brought up: will you say something about it, or pretend it is not there? When somebody has a little green thing sticking out of their nose, it is hard to look away. It’s almost like when someone has a pimple, you can’t avoid it. It’s there, creepily looking at you.…

#17 The Sidewalk Dance

I’ve seen this happen, but I never realized that it was awkward until it happened to me. I had just gotten out of a meeting and was quite stressed out because I found out that one of my programs for student residents at my university dorm halls had to be postponed due to some paperwork problem. I left my coordinator’s office…

#15 When food falls before reaching your mouth

You finally get to scoop up a large piece of delicious chicken. It has been specially cooked for you, just how you like it. You can smell it, and steam is still making its way up toward the heavens as it begins to approach your mouth. When suddenly… It drops. It is common from people from different cultures explain this…

#13 Sex scenes

When you’re on a date. When you’re with your best friend. When you just ate. When you need to pee. When you’re with your sister. When your parents are in the room. When it is an actual sex scene (the ones where you see the guy’s butt). Suppose you’re on a date, watching a movie that involves a love scene. The scene…

#11 When someone fails at parking

Of course, it is awkward if you’re watching it happen, or if someone is watching you attempt to park. Now of course, parking is extremely difficult for some of us; we might even park far away from everyone so that they don’t see us attempt to fit in a tiny spot that will likely take us 20 tries. Its a form…
