A Fun Poll on awkward moments

sktb0007 sktb0007 03/05/2013

I was thinking earlier about a really awkward moment that I had and it got me searching online for other funny awkward moments. I found quite a few, and most of them I have experienced.

I figured I'd make a fun poll to see how many EF'ers have experiences these same awkward moments. I made this into a comparative discussion only because I'm able to add a lot of different polls in one thread, rather than create a whole bunch and flood the main page of the forum.

I've made the voting private for those who are shy.

Invited: All users.

This has happened to me. This was actually the type of awkward moment that got me thinking about awkward moments in general. Someone says, "how are you?" and you respond, "not much" lol. It's not so bad if you immediately catch yourself but if a minute or two go by and you JUST realize what happened, you pray that they didn't notice (and they obviously did).

Definitely!! A very awkward moment--they KNOW you were not listening to a word they said!!!

A similar thing happened to me once.

I think most people realize you just said the wrong thing out of habit. I know I just laugh if someone does it to me, I don't think it means they're not listening. I hope others think like I do when I do it to them!

How about the awkward moment when out of habit and without thinking you say "Love you, goodbye" on the phone to someone you did not intend to say that to (business associate, someone you do not know very well, etc.).

Oh, yeah. Sometimes I get nervous when I meet someone for the first time. I've done this, and I've also had the following exchange:

Them: "Hi!"
Me: "Hi! How are you?"
Them: "Fine. How are YOU?"
Me: "Good. How are YOU?"

Oops!

This has be the best discussion ever, btw.
03/06/2013
WhoopieDoo WhoopieDoo
It's bad, yeah, but it's worse when you just can't hear someone and you assume what they said.

Like me, when I assumed the person taking my order asked what I wanted my side to be:

Cashier: Would you like your soup as your side?
Me: POTATO CHIPS *derrrrrrrrrp*

LOLOL Oh my gosh. It's funny because I totally have done the same thing. Then your face goes red and your like, "oh wait, I already asked that"... and the person just looks at you like, "wtf?"

The most extreme of this that ever happened to me is I have friends I see only every few years. We went out to lunch and we said our goodbyes. I was crying as I drove down the road, and had to stop at the pharmacy for a moment. I turned the corner and guess who was there? lol

LOL!

It's also awkward when someone tells you and there are no mirrors around. You try to get it but then the other person says something like, "no- over" and you're like, "did I get it?" and they're like, "no-over a bit more" and this continues for a good minute or two.

Usually I just lean in and mumble about something caught in his/her teeth or suggest she accompany me to the washroom...something discreet. I have had food in my teeth and had people nervously laughing but not telling me and it was terribly embarrassing.

My zippers are notorious for falling. People will point it out to me and it doesn't bother me, but I find that if I don't turn around to zip up and just zip up in front of everyone, it pushes the awkwardness back on to the person who pointed it out. (Unintentionally I assure you!)

I talk with my hands and look all over unless it's a serious conversation so normally I just lean in and whisper to the person that his/her zipper is down. 'Course if it's a close friend I might say something crass like, "The barn door's open..." or some such.

Nope! No myth! It's usually something that happens when you're really young and just starting school, so like, kindergarten and the younger years of elementary school.

No, but in 8th grade my class took a trip to italy and I was walking with on of my teachers (a male teacher I knew well) and I was holding his arm and then I kissed it! A little peck like I do with my father. I was so embarrassed but I don't think he noticed or maybe he just ignored it. I did not have a crush on him or anything, I guess it was just ingrained from holding onto my fathers arm and acting similarly.

-___- Oh man, this is bad. Like when you're both sorta kinda moving to hug, so it's like doing a very subtle, weird dance...but neither of you are sure if the movements the other person is doing are hug movements...and you really want to hug them so you push it...and then you actually hug and realize the other person wasn't moving in to hug you ........realllllllllll llllllllly bad.

This used to be a big deal, but now I just ask everyone for a hug if I want to hug them. It saves a lot of trouble!

I usually ask cause I'm terrible at hug cues.

NOOOO!


(Normally, I love to hug, but I think most girls have experienced this one with that one persistent guy who just doesn't get it.)

Yes! I have this problem sometimes when we go over to My Guy's friends house. They do a pound and slap or weird handshake thing and I'm a girl... I don't do that stuff! So either way I'm in an awkward position, so I usually hug.

I don't like social hugs! It's not that I don't like hugs, I just dislike them as a greeting/goodbye, that seems silly. If I want or feel I should give a hug, there should be emotion to back it up?

Very frequent for me even with playmates. I am socially awkward and very shy so I never know whether to give a hug or kiss...even if I really want to. Usually I leave it up to other people to make the first move.

I had this happen to me once or twice. It was definitely awkward.

Yes, this has happened to me a few times. I'm a very huggy person and I genuinely love almost everyone I know/meet. My natural instinct is to hug pretty much everyone, both hello and goodbye.

I have an aunt who, I learned, hates even being touched, much less hugged. She stiffened up like I wouldn't have thought possible when I hugged her. I've learned to be more careful since then. I just move towards the person, opening my arms. If they open theirs (which happens about 95% of the time), I'll hug them; otherwise, I switch to a handshake.

I find it more awkward when someone you're not really close with hugs you. I have one really specific memory from high school. I was acquainted with this guy, who I knew him from one class a few years before and who was currently dating a friend of mine. There was a day where I ran into him as I was headed out to the parking lot after I was leaving some after school activity. I ended up talking to him as we walked to our cars and when we reached mine, he sort of surprise attacked, hugged me. And I, of course, forgot to stop my mouth before I said, "Oh... I didn't know we did that."

I feel like this happens to me ALL the time in Europe. My husband finally pointed out that in many situations the doors are opposite of what would be normal in the US. Also with all the old building many of the doors are just random push or pull. In the US more often than not doors slide open or pull out when going in, pull open to leave.

Hahahaha, this has sort of happened to me, except I was pregnant and having a bad day so I said I wasn't pregnant and left them stammering apologies.

Alison, I think that is really funny!

A woman who owned the movie theater asked me while I waited in line with my male friend for a movie to open. Worse, she wouldn't back down after I said I wasn't pregnant! She followed with, "Did you just have a baby?" Everyone in line was listening to this. I just said, "Nope, just fat...thanks" with an ironic smile. She couldn't get it through her head & just kept staring at me, surprised acting and said, "But you look pregnant!" She never apologized, I guess she thought I was lying?

this actually happened to me in high school - i had been out of school sick and started a new antidepressant which made me gain weight only in my stomach, when i came back a teacher asked me (while i was turning in an assignment none the less) "is that the reason you've been out" with a smile, pointing at my stomach. I was absolutely mortified, as i was already self-conscious about gaining so much weight, i just quietly said "no," holding my stomach and went back to my seat where a boy in my class who over heard harassed me saying "you pregnant?" the whole way back. It was my freshman year of highschool and i was 15, single and sexless. Needless to say when my mother found out (i cried to her about it when i got home) she was furious, and spoke to my principle one-on-one about the issue, so during our finals the teacher ended up taking me out of class and giving me an apology, which was almost as embarrassing for me at that age.

TheirPet TheirPet
Not really: I have a stomach disorder and was heading to the ER with an EXTREME case of the bloats (normally I'm underweight so I don't get asked if I'm pregnant) but the ER nurse asked if I was pregnant and how far along.

For my story, I was on steroids & that's what made me gain only in my gut & breasts. Medicine can f*you up!

I'm appalled that a teacher said this to a 15 yr old, (even if she thought it) & with other students nearby? Unbelievable, I actually hurt hearing about that! And singling you out, again in front of everybody, was a horrible idea! Wasn't she ever a teenager before? How clueless can you be, geez.

Someone in a grade behind me showed up at our high school winter formal in a bad knock off version of my dress. She glared at me all evening as if offended & angry. When we were face to face, I smiled & told her she had great taste. She blew me off by just glaring at me. I got so much hate from her & her friends all evening, like I did something to intentionally offend them, WTF? At least I can be smug in the knowledge that I looked fabulous. I had a later boyfriend steal the picture of me & my date, (I found that out about 7 years after the fact, when he admitted to taking several other pictures from my house).

This is awkward enough but I remember one time back in high school, I thought I seen my friend (from the back) and I ran up to him and smacked his ass. The guy turned around and it was totally NOT the person I thought it was. I had no idea who it was and it was awkward seeing him in the hallways for the rest of the time I was at that school.

I went to talk to someone who I admired and was really flustered until I realized it wasn't them.

Yes, it's happened to me. It's also happened to me where I was the person being yelled at. And the girl was pissed/wanted to fight me (my doppleganger). So then I got pissed and started to cuss her out and she realized she had me mistaken with someone else. That was awkward as EVER.

Yes and one time I actually had a whole conversation with a woman I thought was our Exc. Dir.'s assistant only to find out the next day it was her twin! Soooo embarassing!

In high school & college I had guys ask me out when I wasn't interested in them, but because they were some of the very few who got up the nerve to ask, I said yes to be nice, (usually, I had to do the asking!). The date was often as boring as they were, so they didn't ask me out again. I think they were expecting me to be someone I wasn't & I turned out to just be normal & nice, so they were disillusioned. A few turned out to be really interesting & we had a good time. I will never regret being nice instead of crushing their feelings as so many careless girls do. That said, I never would go on a date with someone I really objected to, but I was only exposed to a small group from the schools where everyone knew everyone else's background.

Yes right after college, later I brought my sister to the same function and she Picked him out of the crowd and said" not that one right" it was.

I dogged a bullet when my bf asked me out before a mutual friend. I would have said no but it might have made it more awkward for my current bf to ask me out

Yes, quite a few times. I had no real desire to date until half way through high school, so there were quite a few people I had to turn down.

I've never really been asked out on a date. Maybe I'm too intimidating but I do all the asking.
