Is there really anything better than an awkward story that makes you cringe?
I mean, one that didn’t happen to YOU?
I don’t think there is, but hey, that’s just my opinion.
And even if you don’t think they’re the greatest things on the planet, I think you’ll agree that awkward stories are pretty amazing.
Here are some good ones to whet your appetite. Enjoy!
1. Ouch. This one hurts…
She could have just kept her mouth shut!
The cashier at Trader Joe’s asked me if I worked at Equinox because I was wearing an Equinox T-shirt and I said, “No, but thank you for thinking I’m fit enough to be a personal trainer!” and she said, “They have cleaning staff too.”

2. This is absolutely disgusting.
And I’m wondering if he broke up with you on the spot.
So…uh. While being naked from the waist down, I made eye contact with my boyfriend and lifted my leg to fart. Instead, I pushed a little too hard and just pissed on the floor like a fucking dog while making eye contact with this poor man.

3. Oh…sorry for your loss.
Talk about putting your foot in your mouth…
? RT @MakVest: I work at a bank and this lady came in with a $150,000 check and to make conversation I was like "oh wow I wish I had one of these" then she deadass was like "it's a life insurance check. I would rather have the person." pic.twitter.com/ZnXU6tx7e1

4. You can find me in the club.
Sam’s Club, that is…being embarrassed by my mom.
Yikes RT @jadmev: my mom pulled down my tube top to cover my stomach and my titties fell out so now everybody at sams club knows what my titties look like

5. Another major hiccup.
Also, we are terribly sorry for your loss.

6. You totally got punked by your students.
You should have known this was coming…just sayin’…
?? RT @autumnsays_: I put cucumbers, lemons, lime, and mint leaves in my water today thinking I was fancy…my one student gonna yell out and say “Ms. Luck got a salad in her water”
*students erupt in laughter*

7. Can you come out and play?
Wow, this one is pretty brutal.
I’m really tired of being 5’2. How can we move to our new house and the kids in the neighbourhood, knocked on my door to ask my dad if im playing out. I’m fuming. I’m turning 22 in 2 months

8. That’s not what he meant.
But who knows, maybe he enjoyed it.
MY DENTIST ASKED HIS ASSISTANT TO SUCTION (THE WATER OUT OF MY MOUTH)BUT I THOUGHT HE WAS TALKING TO ME SO I SUCKED HIS FINGER. IM MORTIFIED

9. You really blew it this time.
And you can never go back into that building again.

10. Ma’am, your weave is hanging out of your trunk.
They thought it was a body!

12. This is really not good.
Buuuut, I’m sure they deal with this kind of stuff all the time…hopefully.
So they changed my gate in my layover and I ask the employee what the gate changed too. I showed her my screenshotted ticket and she looked at me strange and just ask me where I was going. I told her and then looked at my phone to realize I was actually showing her this pic.twitter.com/ZvfqV4p4yn
