I Must Confess…my awkward moments

I Must Confess...Awkward MomentsThis week is all about the awks. Those totally uncomfortable moments where you wish the ground would swallow you up whole so you could escape the excruciating embarrassment of a particular situation.

I don’t know about you, but unfortunately there have been many moments in my life where I could have happily disapparated away to anywhere else, just to get away from an awkward moment.

Like the time I asked after an acqaintance’s children only to find out she didn’t have any (a fact I should have been aware of as we are friends on facebook) – that was pretty squirm worthy.

Or the time I had my first period while I was away with my Dad – he was really good about it but it was still awkward having “that” conversation with your father.

Let’s not forget about the time I told a friend I had feelings for them only to find they were not returned – always a very uncomfortable scenario.

Not to mention the time I ran out of a trial HSC music presentation when I could not answer the first question put to me. Yes, I up and ran out in utter panic. I had no words or answers or, really, any clue – not my finest moment.

And then there have been those occasions where words I have uttered in jest or in confidence to others have been misunderstood or relayed to others putting me into some very uncomfortable and awkward situations.

Thinking about any of these moments (and all those others too numerous to mention here) makes my insides squirm. I dread confrontation or feeling foolish or being in the wrong, so many of these occasions are the stuff of nightmares for me.

I must confess this was quite an uncomfortable post to write and brought back many memories that I wish were still long forgotten!

Do you have any uncomfortable or awkward moments to share? Make me feel slightly less “out there” and link them up. I promise I won’t judge you, as long as you don’t judge me too – okay?

  1. Hi Kirsty,
    Just a few awkward moments. I have just written about first periods (which was almost awkward to write). My moment was when I went to the football with my brother and 3 male friends. We were drinking beer all day. As we left the MCG, I needed to go to the toilet and all I could find was a tree to hide behind so my bother and 3 friends couldn’t see me. But I forgot everyone else on the other side of tree could see my bare butt. hmmm

    The moment I was meeting my ‘crush’ at the airport, ran to meet him and fell over, sprawling and sliding 3 meters over the floor! No judgement 🙂

  3. I remember one of my most embarrassing moments was when I was in primary school, I think about grade 3, and I went up to a guy at the end of school and asked him where my brother was. I thought he was our next door neighbour who was picking us up, but I realised he was some other kids dad and had no idea what the hell I was talking about.

    There was also a time in highschool where I grabbed my bag after class and walked off then realised some guy was yelling at me. I’d actually grabbed his bag and walked off with it (in my defence they looked very similar).

      Oh, taking the wrong bag would have been very embarrassing – especially having someone run after you, yelling that you had taken their bag!

  4. I’ve had many embarrassing moments over the years, but the one at Problogger where I thought another attendee was pregnant – and she wasn’t – is one I won’t forget in a hurry!

  5. Oh Kirst I squirm just trying to remember all the times I have said stuff I shouldn’t have, or offended people or done silly stuff. You are NOT alone. I hope you’re dad is on the mend. x

      The squirming is a terrible feeling, isn’t it? Thanks for asking after Dad – he is doing well at home. He heads back to the hospital at the end of the week for a checkup and I hope they will agree he is going well. Just waiting to hear when he will start radiation therapy to get rid of the cancer for good x

    LOL there are too many to pick from. I told a lady her spray painted pink hair looked wicked for “Shave for a Cure” for Cancer Foundation fundraising day and she said that she didn’t know what I was talking about and her hair was always that colour. Ooops.

    No judgement here whatsoever!!
    Due to a blog template mishap and some malfunctioning on my part I didn’t get around to writing a post this week and I also must confess I feel like I have lost a little blogging mojo at the moment. Bound to get it back I am sure!!
    Good on you for being brave and sharing.
