    it's always hilariously uncomfortable whenever you meet an old acquaintance and you two forget each other's names but you both feel that a conversation too short would be more rude than admitting that you forgot his/her name. extra bonus awkward points if you deliberately extend the conversation another 5 minutes and are able to somehow avoid having to bring up his/her name the whole time.

    Since I teach and I'm bad with names, I *always* run into former students and find I'm unable to remember their name. I've actually gotten good at feigning a surprised look of recognition and chatting for several minutes without attempting to bring up a name. It works especially well if I can at least remember which class they took from me.

    Of course, it was especially embarassing when a former student came into my office several weeks ago and I stood and introduced myself....what a dork. [​IMG]

    i hate when walking down the hall or something and you see someone who you really dont want to talk to. i usually do the good ol take the phone out of the pocket and pretend im looking at the time or a text. or i just stair at the wall in a...oh shit when did this wall get here!...... sort of way. but if they call your bluff and talk to you, its even more awkward because you all of a sudden have to act like you had no idea they were there.
    you put the ying in my yang

    im in a grocery store, with all asian employees. my total was something like $12.47, i gave her a twenty...

    me: you can keep the three cents
    her, confused: three cents?
    me: yea you can keep the three pennies.
    her, smiling: oooh pennies. yes.

    needless to say she gives me my 53 cents back.

    walking in on my roommate having sex with some chick on the living room coach and then saying "nevermind me" on my way back to my room after grabbing some orange juice. then minutes later i come back out to join them on the sofa to watch "ghostwriter." only reason why i watch that show is because of jennifer love hewlitt-packard's boobs.

    He said it was minutes later, so surely they were done. [​IMG]

    If they are that bohemian, why didn't you give her a pat on the rump or better yet, join them?

    Over 20 years ago: so I'm in a cute girl's dormroom looking over her shoulder as she's reading me something aloud, when she muffs a simple word badly. Jackass pedant-boy that I am, I bust out with a laugh and, "what, are you dyslexic or something?"

    I think you know the rest ... [​IMG]

    A couple of weeks ago, a woman who works for me (call her A) came into my office and started slagging a subordinate (also a woman; call her B). She went on about it for a bit, clearly agitated, with her back to the door.

    Lo and behold, who should appear in my doorway but B. So here I was, stuck at my desk staring past the complainer straight at the object of her derision. It got worse -- A demanded of me, "what are you going to do about B?" I replied with some halting, non-committal process-type verbiage, all the while thinking, "how the fuck am I going to weasel my way out of this one?"

    Lucky for me, B moved to the table inside my office behind A, and thus out of my line of sight, so I made a couple of wide-eyed facial gestures and pointed vigorously behind A. She turned around to find B sitting at the table, arms crossed and eyeing her smugly. Ooh boy, catfight time ... [​IMG]

    After a sharp exchange, A gathered up the tatters of her dignity and left my office. I had to spend the next 1/2 hour mollifying B. Needless to say that little scene has made for some cool relationships around the building. Seems to be one of those alpha-girl things you sometimes get in professional settings. Kind of funny in a drawing-room drama sort of way in retrospect, but explosively embarrassing at the time.

    I think the only way to have properly diffused this situation would've been to drop trou and suggest a threesome.

    I actually have conversations on my cell phone (without calling anyone) to avoid people. I act like the conversation is really in depth and something important and/or terrible has happened.
