10 Socially Awkward Situations We’ve All Been Through

The embarrassment is real.

1. When you’re having a conversation with someone and you don’t hear what they say so you ask them to repeat and they do. But you still don’t hear it and ask them to repeat again and they do. But you still don’t hear it…


2. When you’ve had multiple interactions with someone but you can’t remember their name, and now it’s too late to admit that you have no idea who you’re talking to.

3. When the hunger hits and your stomach rumbles in the middle of a quiet class/meeting.

4. When you’re walking in public and almost trip for no reason.

5. When you receive a terrible gift and have to pretend you liked it. Make sure your smile is not too fake.

6. When you crack a funny joke but all you get is silence.

7. When you say goodbye to someone, then you both end up walking in the same direction.

Now you’re forced to have yet another conversation.

8. When you stalk someone on social media and accidentally like a comment from months/years ago.

9. When you wave at someone you know and get 100% ignored.

10. When you bump into an inanimate object and apologize to it.
