Your most recent awkward moment - Page 2

post #16 of 242
Meeting the president of Ginza Tailor recently and mentioning that I read the interview she did in the magazine that GT had been so courteous as to send me a copy of, and then suddenly forgetting the name of the magazine when she asks which one.

We talked for maybe 30 minutes to a hour and caught up, but even that was pretty weird. Easily the most awkward experience I've ever had.
so did you buy a dance off her? I"D TOTALLY DO IT! That actually probably would be the best way to turn the awkwardness into fun!

My awkward moments usually happened when I meet my classmates at their work place. First, a few years ago I met a highschool classmate at a local strip club. She was skinny, a cheerleader, and a known slut. Still, seeing her on stage was really awkward as I went away for college, and she became a stripper. The thought of hitting it never crossed my mind. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that she slept with most of the basketball players, and a few wrestlers, football players thrown in for good measure. We had a few words, she showed be her infested cooch, then I went home. Recently I saw a law school classmate at a local restaurant/bar place. She works there to make extra money. I know her, but we never really talk in school as she's the quiet type and I don't really hang around with the law kids much. So, I was with my gf, who's a law student, and her roommate, who's also a law student. We sat down, she saw us and came over. She said hi, I said hi back, then a good 3 seconds of silence passed. The then mumbled something and left. We didn't see her for the rest of the night. The whole thing was weird probably because both of us realized at that moment that, although we want to be nice to each other, we really know nothing about each other and furthermore have no desire to get to know each other. So, that was that.

That's some awkward shit, I know how that is because I got fired from a job I worked at during college by the same kind of glazed, unpredictable, emotionless manager.

Fortunately, I've never run into any old high school aquaintances and probably never will. If I ever did, I'd probably force an awkward moment by saying, "How unfortunate that you're still alive!" Or better yet, refusing to acknowledge them in any way and denying having any memory of such a person if they recognized me and tried to make conversation.

The only person I've ever met who went to the same private school, I met in Calcutta. He expressed a similar hatred for the place, explaining that after graduating, he'd become a pothead in reaction to the oppressive authoritarianism of the place, though he never would have dreamed of smoking dope before. We had a good time recalling what unmitigated assholes certain people were.

Erm. She volunteered and gave me one, but it was really weird. The song stopped early for one reason or another and she said she would keep going if I wanted but I just put the sorry dance out if its misery.

Not that it was a bad dance, it was just strange. She said she had to pretend I was just some random guy and didn't look at me directly when she was doing her thing. I did likewise and tried to pretend she was just some stripper.. didn't really work though. I enjoyed it at first (plus the novelty factor of it being a girl I used to have a crush on) but it quickly became weird. She gave me her number though and we'll probably grab lunch some time.

My encounter was a lot different than DarknWorn's, namely because this girl is the last person you'd ever expect to go into that sort of thing. Had her first boyfriend at 19.. to paint a picture (and I'm a little embarrassed to admit this) we first met at our high school's anime club.

Two of my classmates in law school danced at Mons Venus. It was well-known and they weren't shy about it. I had kind of an awkward conversation just this morning. Some new guy, Lance, at my job came around to introduce himself.
L - "Hey, I'm Lance"
R - "Hey, I'm Rodney.....are you from Cleveland?"
L - "From just outside there, yeah, how'd you know?"
R - "Your accent"
L - "People from Ohio don't have accents"
R - "Really? Then how'd I know you were from Ohio, Cleveland no less?"
L - "....Maybe because I don't have an accent?"
R - (in a subtle Cleveland accent) "Well, anyway, it was good to meet you, see ya around, Lance"

Seriously thought this kinda stuff only happened in movies.

I did a similar thing a couple of years ago. I was crossing the street and looking at a hot girl and i stepped in a big puddle and got my pretty shoe wet.

I ran into an ex girlfriend once, with her husband and kids, and my wife and son. I hadn't thought about her for years, but I guess her husband had heard about me or something - he looked really unhappy to see me. we really didn't have anything to say to each other, but we sort of felt we should have, so it dragged on uncomfortably, with her husband glaring at me. it was pretty funny.

this happens to me sometimes when i am on a plane by myself.

somebody sits next to me that for some reason has a need to try to make conversation with me.
i usually dont talk to anyone and am more comfortable not talking, unless there is something actually interesting to talk about or important.

but this person just needs to make small talk with me about such boring stuff. i dont know. sometimes he asks me where i am from, how's the weather there, what is the reason why i am flying, where do i work , and etc.

like cmon, i just want to rest. turn my head to the side and look out the window and fall asleep, but for some reason, i feel guilty doing that to him. i have a tendency to try to respond and put on a fake smile and force out a chuckle when he tries to say something funny. this is so tiring. i just wish i can get up and change seats.
or tell him, look i dont want to talk can you leave me alone for the next 4 hours??

but i cannot.
i sit there and go through hell for 4 hours.

Not recently, but I've run into an acquaintance of mine from HS from time to time at the local Best Buy, he works there now. As per what I was told by a friend of mine from HS who happens to also be friends with him: he basically married the first chick he fucked, they now have a daughter (he is 24 or 25 now), he has gotten fat and is even more of a nerd than I recall. He is still obsessed with making fun of a teacher we had back in HS...7 years ago! Every time I run into him he brings the teacher up, it's embarrassing and frankly I feel sorry for him.

Although if it's a good looking chick...it might be worth your while. On my way to Rome from Tel-Aviv I sat next to a cute chick and we started talking and I met up with her a few days later...which made my stay in Rome much more enjoyable.

That's a best-case scenario.

Usually, it's a fat, vulgar middle-aged woman who wears too much perfume.

Or the Chinese peasant who sat next to me on my last 14 hr. flight and kicked and elbowed me the entire time because he just didn't know any better (why such a diminutive person needed so much room is beyond me). I got my revenge by needing to get up to go to the restroom repeatedly while he was trying to sleep.
