Sometimes, the synapses just don’t fire right. Glitches in our brain can range from an innocent Freudian slip to completely misinterpreting what the person we’re talking to is saying to us.
It’s ultra-awkward moments like those that make for some pretty amazing stories on the internet.
Here are 12 more awkward conversations that made life a little bit more uncomfortable for the people that had to live through them.
Hats off to these champions for toughing these moments out.
1. A fair warning
Hey, soup can be pretty dangerous.
I’ll take that order.
3. Ignorance is bliss
This one is pretty glorious.
4. It takes a lot to apologize
Glad that these two could have this moment together.
5. Taking it to the next level
I’m sure this dentist felt very appreciated.
I don’t know what’s more fascinating – the image of someone trying to scan their face or the idea of a TSA agent actually laughing.
7. This one’s poetic
In a way, I totally relate.
8. Okay, this
It legitimately took me five minutes to figure out what that teacher actually wrote.
9. Major faux pas
I wouldn’t want to make a mistake like this with someone who has scissors near my head.
10. Just walk away
Maybe she didn’t notice?
I can only imagine how awkward this dressing room was after that.
12. Oh no
Block this number immediately.
That last one was super rough. I’m positive I would chuck my phone out the window after that. There are some conversations you just can’t bounce back from, and that’s one of them.
