The Top Ten

1 When you start talking to a stranger, thinking they're your friend

I have done that several times at school and they just stare at me I smile and go to the person I was talking to - sweetmadi11

2 Walking into a classroom and realizing you're in the wrong class

The longer you stay in that classroom, the worse it gets. - Lina1028

It happened to me once. It was embarrassing. - TheFourthWorld

3 When your device auto-corrects what you're typing into something totally different

Ha! You clearly haven't forgotten when that happened with me! - PositronWildhawk

I hate this so much! And one day, I was bored and laughed at some funny ones. Apparently, auto correct is pretty perverted... - Turkeyasylum

Especially when it auto corrects stuff that's spelled right. - lovefrombadlands

Autocorrections can turn normal sentences to perverted ones,like Turkey said - Nateawesomeness

The Contenders

...then you feel so stupid! - Fan_of_Good_Music

12 Walking into the wrong room
13 Forgetting someone's name
14 Forgetting your purse/wallet at the checkout
15 When you say 'bye' to someone and then realize you're both going in the same direction

This made me laugh. So awkward. What do you do in this situation? Do you pretend that you haven't noticed them still walking at your side for the next two hundred yards? What is the correct etiquette for this type of awkward social situation? The only possible good thing about this is the knowledge that they're probably just as embarrassed as you are. - Britgirl

This once happened to be. I was visiting my family, and we did this 6 times and realised we were going the same way every time. - gemcloben

To be honest, this happens to me almost every day. - IronSabbathPriest

After this situation I always walk faster cause this situation is really made for the word 'awkward'! - Fan_of_Good_Music

16 Being late

I was late in first grade once, people stared at me like I murdered five kids.

17 When you say a joke but you're the only one laughing

Why are friends like bananas?

Because if you peel off their skin and eat them, they die!

... Anyone? - keycha1n

You're practically laughing at your own joke but no one else is. - Lina1028

What instrument do users of TheTopTens play?
A TopTenor saxophone!
No one likes that joke. - lovefrombadlands

18 When you're in a quiet room but you're so hungry your stomach starts making weird noises

For example, when you're in class and suddenly your stomach makes noises that sound like a dying whale. - Lina1028

I could relate to that. - Pegasister12

19 When your friend(s) bring their friend(s) but you don't know them
20 When you think your earphones are plugged in so the volume is up but they're not plugged in

One time this happened to me and it was in the middle of our silent art class and you hear Tiny Tim go, "HELLO MY DEAR FRIENDS.." - LizardKing99

One time, in class, this happened. At least the class got to hear the beautiful sound that is Heaven In Hiding. - lovefrombadlands

This is my worst fear in school. This is why I have my volume kept on low, always. - Pegasister12

This just happened to me today! - JaysTop10List

21 When you send a message to the wrong person

One time I was on roblox and I was suppose to send "my throat hurts" to my REAL friend (they asked me why I wasn't in school that day) and I accidently messaged it to this boy in my class it was awkward

Oh god... Bad memories are returning. - IronSabbathPriest

22 Farting during a test when it's quiet

Someone did this before in my biology class - iimidnightstarz

I farted in the library.

23 When your friend leaves the room but you're stuck with their family

I don't know what's worse: Being stuck with their parents, or their siblings. - Lina1028

Both it is awkward - sweetmadi11
