I was thinking about this today. There are a few things that either make me feel awkward in public or that confuse me.

Here are two off the top of my head.

1. PDA - I get grossed out and feel awkward when someone next to me is hugging all up on their significant other. A lot of the time it seems as if they're dry humping in public.

2. This one was the main one I was thinking of today. I was going to my work and someone was ahead of me. They opened the first door for me, and I said thank you as I always do. Then we go to another door. What do I do? Do I say thanks again, despite already saying it 20 seconds earlier, or do I ignore it at the cost of making someone feel bad. It's a very awkward situation for me.

List some stuff that you find to make you feel awkward/uncomfortable in public.

the good old fashion walking in the hallway straight at someone and you both move to the same direction. then you wind up looking like two mimes doing a street performance. to avoid this i just walk through people. if you're in my way, i'll move you out

i was foreman on a large building site and i needed some shit work fixed up so a called a few carpenters from 1 side of the job site to the other side, so they could fix up some shit work some other guys had done.

i said to them look at what these f**ken idiots have done could u guys fix this up for me. on hourly rate

they said: yeah we did that

i just stood there for a second not knowing what to do

then one of them started laughing and just said no worries we'll fix it up

i just walked away smiling

-that was a little awkward

Lol in high school we would do the madden spin move to avoid this awkward situation...a buddy of mine created a new one when he spun directly into the hot new teacher, said he grabbed a boob but I don't believe him.

didn't happen to me but one of my friends said some kind of momma joke to another kid in our class, and he replied with "my mum's dead"

AWKWARD !!

When someone smacks me in the head with a Giant Black Dildo, I feel a bit uncomfy.

Or when Im back in my hometown and someone from the high school days sees you and they say the normal " Hey whats up man?" "How you been, what are you up to?". Then after those first few questions it becomes uncomfortable and awkward.

I hate when you're in line somewhere and people stand half an inch away from you, like you're in an elevator or something, even though theres plenty of room all around.

I also hate it when people say "Bless you" when you sneeze. Mostly because I tend to sneeze three or four times in a row and everyone in the room says "Bless you" every single time, it gets really old. Modern science has shown that the hand of God does not intervene every time I sneeze to save my life, so kindly let me sneeze in peace.

As for the door things, I don't say thank you for that, and don't expect a thank you in return, as its common sense to hold the door open. If someone DIDNT do that when they knew full well you were a couple feet behind them, I'd call them a dick.

If you have a handful of boxes or whatever and are say 5ft away and I hold open the door for you and I dont get a Thanks or Thank You, rest a sure I'd call you a dick. I'd say its almost on par with getting the thank you wave when you let someone pull out infront of you with their car.

Obviously there are exceptions, like that, or if someone holds the door from the outside for you, but the standard holding the door back while you go through set-up doesn't require a thank you in my book.

I don't use the driving thank you almost ever because I hate when people stop to let other people through and break the flow of traffic. Thats how people cause accidents. If someone is already at a stop and lets me out in front of them, I'd give them a thank you, but if someone actually stops everyone else to do it, I usually yell at them.

True Story: I was giving a speech at a conference. I felt pretty good about the whole thing and had even taken questions from the audience after my prepared bit was done. I was feeling good about it as I walked out the back door into the street to have a cig (I smoked at the time). All of a sudden I felt a rush of cold air on my wang. I look down to see that not only is my zipper down, but my flap on my boxers was wide open as well.

I asked a couple of people who were there later if they had seen anything... they said they hadn't noticed but I don't believe them.

the most awkward thing for me is when it looks like someone is waving to me so i wave back, but then realize they are waving at the person behind me that one always makes me feel like a tool

One time in college i had to do a presentation, and at one point i noticed pretty much the whole class laughing, I had no idea what was going on. Then i noticed this one kid starring right at my crotch so i knew straight away my fly was low. I decided to just have a laugh with it though, stopped the presentation and asked everybody what they thought of my boxers without them even knowing i knew it was down. Then i made some jokes about the kid starring being gay, and just got on with the rest of the presentation without fastening up. Ended up being pretty fun.

Its weird, i think back to that, and i could do a presentation by myself, fly down, in front of 50 people, and stroll through it. Now in university I get up to do a presentation with a who group infront of 30 or so people and i choke every time. I get dry mouth, and even i can hardly understand what im saying my voice is so trembly. Its annoying.

it's always awkward when you're the only person in a public bathroom taking a leak and some guy walks in and decides to use the urinal right next to you when there are about 6 other ones he could use.

It's not really a public situation, but back in like middle school i would fall asleep with the TV on usually watching South Park, and every once in a while I would forget to set the sleep timer, so when my mom would come in to wake me the Girls Gone Wild infomercial would be on. idk it just felt kinda akward

On that note, I was watching Forgetting Sarah Marshall with my mom. I hadn't heard about the movie since it came out in theaters, and for some reason I thought it was rated PG-13...and for those of you who haven't seen that movie...Jason Segel shows his shlong in the first 5 minutes of the movie.

Pissing at the Urinal Trough...Nothing worse than having to piss at a concert or sporting event and having to pee bumping elbows with the dude next to you..I dunno but at the county fairgrounds here they actually have a circle trough..that has to be the worst invention ever.

It also sucks when you bang a chick and then not talk to her afterwards and then you see her out in public like at the bar or something.Thats alittle awkward.

One day at work an older lady was walking by and she had a trail or Toliet Paper hanging out the back of her pants..I guess she must've had a serious case of the mud butt and it got stuck in her anus and this dude i work with ran over to her and was like..hey you got some shit paper creeping out the back of your pants.Luckily a lot of ppl didnt see her...so now everytime i get done droppin a deuce at work i always make sure i aint got tp or those paper seat covers caught in my pants.

Sweat pants + boner...though it's a great way to claim your personal space, it can be quite embarassing.

Hot chicks + farting...it's happened to me quite a bit. I'll let one fly and a hot chick will come around the corner and walk through my cloud of toxins.

"Hey...I'm moving tomorrow. Do you think I could get you to help me?" - the question that NO ONE wants to hear. How many times have you tried as fast as possible to think of an excuse for not being able to do it? I know I've done so both successfully AND unsuccessfully in the past.

Crowded rooms. It sucks when you can't stare in any one direction without it seeming like you're staring at someone. No I'm not looking at you jerk-off, I'm just tired of swiveling my head.

When your phone goes off in front of your mom and the ringtone is "Oh me so horney" by 2 Live Crew...which wouldn't be so bad if you hadn't locked the keypad...and weren't having a brainfart on how to open it. Just smile...smile! Yeah I changed that ringtone.

Elevator rides. They have those damned mirrors everywhere so if I look straight ahead I'm looking at you, turn around I'm looking at you. If we start a conversation canI leave once it's my floor or do I have to say "see ya later" and finish the conversation?
