So below are things which I’ve encountered and I’m sure you’ve at least experienced one of them and have
perhaps definitely thought: Man that was awwwwwwwwwwwkward!
At the supermarket, you bump into someone you know so you have a little catch up before going opposite directions. Then throughout the whole time, you try your UTMOST to avoid the aisle they’re in and hope to god that they’re doing the same!!!!
You’re bored so you go into the Facebook stalking mode (c’mon I know you have, don’t deny it). Moments later you get a notification that the person accepted your friend request! The first thought is: ‘SHHHHHHHHIIIIIIIIIT!’ you panic and quickly unfriend them which makes it even more awkward!
Okay you’re on the phone to someone who’s got a very strong accent and you have NO idea what they’re saying. Obviously, you say ‘Sorry, what did you say?‘ but yet again you fail to understand them!!! At what point is it rude to ask them to repeat themselves again and again and again??
First meet someone
When you first meet someone and you both don’t know what to do so as you go in for a hug and they go in for a handshake…awwwwwwkward!!!!
Well not literally, but it is the case when you accidentally walk into someone’s path and you both keep going the same way. Might as well sign up to Strictly Come Dancing!!!
Holding the door
You go the the door, open it and you look behind to see someone behind you but at an awkward distance. Do you: a) Hold the door, making them run towards you or b) not hold the door and they’ll probably think, ‘What a prick!‘…you just can’t win!!!
For now, that’s all I can think of but there’s loads more out there! What are your most awkward encounters?
