Most Awkward Moments

Sometimes we're in everyday life, and it turns out to be very awkward.

The Top Ten

1 When no one gets your joke

I really hate this. Usually, people get most of my jokes, or laugh at most of the things I do, but when this happens, then you have to explain, and when the STILL don't get it---oh, that kills me.

Not to mention when you mess up with the joke itself and they look at you like you are insane... - RaineSage

Awkward moments are great! (as long as you’re just watching it happen).

People normally get my jokes and laugh at them but sometimes no one gets them and it's just like "Wait, what? "

2 Awkward silences

I was at a bus and then I saw my brother I called him but he didn't hear me because he has earpods on and then everyone at the bus just looked at me like I'm a murderer and there was a cringy silent. God why

When me and my friends finish a conversation none of us can think of what to say next (normally it's me who talks after this) and the boy always says "awkward silence)" - AnonymousChick

It's got the word "Awkward" inside. What do you expect?
Plus awkward silences is when people can't actually talk but when someone don't shake it the the same way, it doesn't allow people to talk... "

It is the most awkward of the awkward moments. 'enough said.

3 When you think your crush is waving at you but they're really waving at someone else

Yeah especially if they see that you thought they were waving at you and look and stare at you...

I look at him, smile, wave, and then his new girlfriend runs up and gives him a kiss. :(

4 Walk into someone in the hall and you get in each other's path

I feel like grabbing the guy and throwing him behind me.

Happens everyday in my crowded school, we're all used to it

5 Shaking hands with someone who doesn't shake it the same way

One time, when I got George Kollias (Drummer) to sign his signature on my poster, he told me give him a hand shake and then I shook his hand the wrong way! - eddieho

I really hate this situation because I can negatively interpreted in many different ways and it affects my behaviour in a way I don't want (i react in a way I don't like). As a result, I don't want to see this person no more

Never want this to happen. - XxKrayziexX

6 When you fart in class and you pretend it isn't you, but everyone is looking at you

That has not happened to me but to someone else!

I’ve thankfully never had this happen to me, but I’ve seen it happen to other people and I could only imagine how awkward that is. - 3DG20

7 Pulling a door that says “push”.

Every single time we go to Dollar Tree I start pulling the door and everyone stares at me and someone pushes the door beside

I do this a lot. - RiverClanRocks

If this happened to me I'd crash in the door and then laugh a lot

Other way around for me.

8 A friend gets you a gift that you don't want

This is really awkward. It's even more awkward when it's a gift from Santa and your parents take it back!

This one is really awkward. A couple years ago I got clothes for my birthday that I though were ugly. I just pretended to like them and I said Thanks I love them. Cause it is the thought that counts [I'm also very good at acting so I was able to pull if off]

That has happened to me!

9 Looking at someone in the car next to you in traffic and they keep looking

Happened to me many Times and it is so creepy!

10 When you still don't understand someone after they repeat it multiple times

Lord, this one is so awkward. I think my dad's friend has some talking problem. Every time he says anything I either say "what? " Or pretend that I heard by laughing a little and then say "yeah". Very awkward.

Especially after you hear all of a 5 minute explanation on whether its break yet or not and you still don't get it and you realize you're wasting your time

This happens to me sometimes. - PeeledBanana

This happens a lot lol

11 When you blush in front of a person you like

This can be very awkward yet still can be a good thing. Just don't look the person in the eye, avoid eye contact.

I don't have any crushes, but I see this happen to my friends EVERYDAY! It is so awkward that it isn't even LOL! - HYDRAflash

This is my life. I blush in front of my crush and he asked me if I was hot or something.

If only my crush talked to me... - ComaWhite21

12 Drool randomly coming out of your mouth

This is definitely the most awkward situation. It's also awkward when snot randomly comes out of your nose.

This annoys me because I don't know its happening!

Definitely awkward and gross P.U.

As I was reading this drool was actually coming out of my mouth... No joke

13 Replying to someone you think is talking to you, but actually they’re on their Bluetooth.
14 When you laugh at your own joke but no one else does

Yep I tell science puns so I get this a lot.

15 Grabbing a pole on public transportation but then holding someone else’s hand.

Just happend to me in the buss. A guy were holding a pole and I just grabbed his hand like if it's normal. I realized it maybe 3 seconds later. What's even more awkward is that he was one of my old kindergarten friend.

16 Asking out a crush and having your crush ask "who are you?"

Awkward - Martinglez

17 When you barely understand a joke five minutes later
18 When someone asks you a question but you don't know the answer
19 When you think your earphones are plugged in but they're not so everyone can hear your music

That happened to me on the train once and it was really quiet. I hurried up and put headphones in lol

I like when this happens because then people can hear the songs I listen to!

Happened at school.

Or your porn - AngusCash

20 Laugh at something you read in public and everyone looks at you.
21 When you don't get your friend's joke and they have to explain it
22 Holding the door open for someone far away and forcing them to run over
23 Forced to sit next to someone who farts, curses, and has dandruff.
24 When the room suddenly gets quiet while you're in the middle of a conversation with a friend
25 When you see someone waving, think it's directed to you and begin to wave back just to learn it was meant for the person behind you.

This happened at Walmart when I was exiting the bathroom. - RiverClanRocks

26 Falling in public

Especially when it’s down the stairs.

Gawd always

27 Going in for a hug but all the person wanted was a handshake
28 Get a math problem wrong while everyone else got it right

This happens to me a lot.

29 When you're trying to get the noodle hanging out of your mouth

This happens to me but with pizza cheese instead

30 When you send a message to the wrong person

This isn’t too awkward to me because I only really text family members, but even that can be super awkward in some cases. - 3DG20

31 When you sit next to a friend's parent that you don't know very well

It's really awkward, they say hello and are being nice to you but you really don't know what to say. - PeeledBanana

32 If your skinny friends fit through a obstacle and you stay behind because you are fat

I don't do obstacles I am lazy

What obstacles?

33 Getting sick while on stage at a concert

This thankfully didn't happen to me, but I did fall in a school play. - Martinglez

Well, I lost my voice when I had to sing for 8 minutes.

34 Saying "you too" when someone says something like "Happy Birthday"

I do this a lot and I don't know why. - RiverClanRocks

35 When you're talking to someone and everyone else in the room gets quiet and they hear the entire conversation

This literally happens all the time. - Absolite

36 When someone catches you talking to yourself

That's so awkward when it happens. - Anonymousxcxc

Cringe just thinking of it.

One word... Awkward. - Stazemar000

I hate that extremely akward situation

37 Telling someone a hilarious story and realizing that they were the one who told it to you

38 Realizing your hair cut looks like a Dr. Seuss hat

My hair looks like an octopus strangely

39 When someone decides to move to another bus seat when it becomes free
40 Yelling "marco!" nobody yells "polo!"

That’s because they cheated.

41 When people laugh at you for messing up
42 poop in the woods and notice that there are a bunch of people looking at you

When someone says "AWKWARD" but nothing was awkward, thereby making the situation super awkward.

43 When you laugh and it all goes quiet
44 When you're pooing in a crowded public toilet and you accidentally fart

I really tried to bypass this one but it was too much for me. THAT IS SO FUNNY! I've heard this in the next cubicle to me. She let one go, apologised to whoever heard then we laughed. I felt so embarrassed for her. - Britgirl

45 When someone is talking with so many long words that you don't know

Me everyday in English

46 Thinking there’s one more step to walk down and tripping over the unexpectedly flat ground

Oh that's real stuff right there,but I'd been looking @ somebody nearly switch to the ground.

I feel you. - Absolite

47 Overhearing people screwing in another room
48 The teacher asks you a question and you were zoning out

I do that sometimes it is quite funny because I just end up in front of the teachers face saying "What? "

49 In a tight corner with someone you like in one corner, someone you used to like in another, someone you hate in the third corner, and a relative who knew nothing about it in front, watching with intrigue

In all, simply being in a tight corner with someone is already awkward. But in this case.. Wow, I don't know what I'd do haha.

Oh God! What do you do?!?!

Now that’s what I call unrelealistic.
