The Most Awkward Moments Ever
« on: June 22, 2011, 08:26:10 am »
Because we don't (yet) have a like button, here's the next best thing for one thread...


If people like this idea, I'll keep posting new choices at the end of each poll. All selections will be taken from the That Awkward Moment When... thread on the Off-Topic main board. I reserve the unlimited right to change the results, change the rules, remove options, etc if I see people trying to monkey around with the poll or spamming the boards. (But I really really hope it never comes to that, 'cause it's not srs bsns.)

You can always post awkward moments here if you want, but they won't be used as selections for the poll unless they're posted in the original thread. Please feel free to comment as much as you like, as long as it's not some variation on the theme of PLZ VOTE4 ME GAIZ PLZ PLZ PLZ. ;)

(Edit) Original awkward moments may be edited, particularly for brevity - the forum software doesn't seem to like anything over 245 characters, and will truncate poll options down to that number.

And the sixth semi-official Most Awkward Moment Ever was...

[when] my coworker who has decided I should have a baby talks to me about pregnancy stuff, and asks me questions like what I'm looking for in a "baby daddy."

The winner nailed both 1st and 2nd with only two entries, making it official - that's one seriously messed-up workplace. Let us know if you ever need witnesses, okay? ;)

For anyone who's curious, the contestants were:
* [when my coworkers corner me and ask] why I'm losing weight if I'm pregnant, and if I'm anorexic. (Both false.)  (2nd)
* [when] my coworker who has decided I should have a baby talks to me about pregnancy stuff, and asks me questions like what I'm looking for in a "baby daddy."
* when you feel uncomfortable personally asking your teacher to come over to your house to chill, and you spend lots of time just standing there next to them not really knowing what to say when you really just want to invite them over and can't get it out.
* when someone tells you they like you and you're like, "Oh. Um....that's.....cute?"
* when you have to ask for chopsticks at an Asian food restaurant...
* when someone who you've tried to leave in the past asks you for your new phone number so they can call you...
* when someone asks to see what you've been drawing/writing... before you've finished...
* when you come downstairs to see your mom playing your xbox and failing at it so all you can do is walk away to keep from exploding.
* when you accidentally call the teacher "Mom". (Woohoo! We've got Tsuyoshi-kun from Kodocha in the house! ^_^)
* when you show up 4 hours late to a 5-hour-long party

^ If you do, I'm pretty sure I'll be announcing a lot more workspace-related awkward moments. I thought my coworkers were interesting, but yours make them look as sane as Kasumi compared to the rest of the Ranma 1/2 cast.  ;)

~

Without further ado, the seventh semi-official Most Awkward Moment Ever was...

*drumroll*

when you're at a graduation party with the boy you went to prom with's family and they're convinced the two of you guys are going to get married and have babies. I didn't have the heart to tell them that I'm gay.

(Ouch.)

For anyone who's curious, the contestants were:
* when you show up 3 hours late for a 2-hour-long meeting
when you show up for a class that happened yesterday
when you're at a graduation party with the boy you went to prom with's family and they're convinced the two of you guys are going to get married and have babies. I didn't have the heart to tell them that I'm gay.
when you realize you're going to be homeless in less than a month.
when someone says something completely worrying and serious, and you want to post but don't really know what to say.
when your brother is texting you and through the powers of deduction, you realize he is inside your house.
[when] after having a bad day this happens: http://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=10150214427627978&id=697312977&notif_t=feed_comment
[^] when a Facebook link doesn't work? (2nd)
when you put a heap of hot steamy rice into your mouth, and your face blows up like a balloon until you cough and rice falls out your nose...
when you head butt and someone on accedent reaching for a box of mac and chess in the store and relized it was some kid you bullied in junior high ...

Another tie for the ninth semi-official Most Awkward Moment Ever between...

*drumroll*

[when] you're at work, and you have to tell a customer that their zipper is down.
and
when you write up a HILARIOUS reply, but then you read it again and think "that's really not funny," so you type a new one, but it isn't funny either, and eventually you just close the window instead of showing everyone how un-funny you are.

~

(Or the even more awkward moment when you have to tell a customer that their zipper is down and think up a HILARIOUS way to do it, but think about it and realize "that's not funny", so they walk out of the store before you get a chance to tell them that "the barn door's open and the cows are out".)

(Fair warning, I may start combining these more often if we keep getting ties. ;) Sunday, the winner might be "[when] your at your first con and you walk up to a lady that you thought you recognized that worked at the reg table the day before... and they try to bite you and you call them an obscene name.")

For anyone who's curious, the contestants were:
* when you are really mad at someone and want to yell at them and ask them why but theres to many people there to day it
* when someone you hated or don't don't even remember from elementary school say hi to you at the bus, and they most likely remember you because of your hair
* when someone is ripping off someone else's original character
* when I see my friend I've known for ever 10 years in burlesque for the first time....
* when you're in the middle of asking your mom if she checked the mail when you realize its sunday.
* when you're trying to explain something to a friend and they just aren't getting it.
* [when] you're at work, and you have to tell a customer that their zipper is down.
* when your talking to your dad and he jokingly says your abducted
* when your mouth is bleeding and your mom makes fun of you for making out with people :/
* when you write up a HILARIOUS reply, but then you read it again and think "that's really not funny," so you type a new one, but it isn't funny either, and eventually you just close the window instead of showing everyone how un-funny you are.

The Most Awkward :-[ Moments Ever, Official Postscript
.
.
.
Okiedoke. Time to close the doors, turn out the lights, and go home. Thank you to everyone who participated, and to everyone who's still sharing their awkward moments in the original thread. (^_^)

As a last hurrah, we'll have a showdown between the twelve winners... the champion will take home a basket full of Internet cookies, a whole lotta sympathy hugs, and most importantly, the knowledge that they're bad-#$% enough to face down awkward moments that could make Oprah cringe.  ;)

oh but I just thought of one, taking your grandma to see the first "scary movie" movie in theater?

*note that at the time the only way said grandma got to go to the movies was like once a year, the ads made it look like a parody and grandma likes funny stuff, and it was before the reviews stated crude sexual humor*

superjaz, that is jaz with one z count um ONE z!

Sorry that I gave the wrong impression... the other thread is (and I imagine will stay) alive and well. The poll is the only thing that'll be fading away.

^
(But wow, that one would definitely be one heck of a contender. Just imagining it makes me cringe for both of ya. ;))

Yes, I was desperate to think of something to acknowledge the awkwardness and put it behind us at the same time
I did come up with something

"Its good we saw that first because mom was going to take Karl (my younger brother) to go see that, and now I need to tell her she shouldn't"

My grandma agreed.
