16 Pics That Caught The Awkward Times

Diply 30 Apr 2018

Trust, I'm no stranger to awkward situations. Most of the time, I can't even buy a carton of milk without fumbling through my pockets for the right change while the line behind me grows more and more annoyed with my cartoonish antics. But if you're just a generally awkward person, how are you supposed to help it? I say, just laugh it off — it's not like there's a pill you can take or something...is there? That'd be handy. Sorry, where were we? This is awkward, let's just look at the pics!

1. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity! Well, for one person.

For Anna Kendrick, however, it was just another annoying fan. That being said, at least he learned his lesson...that is, until he sees Ed Sheeran buying grape shampoo at Kroger.

2. I guess he'll have to work as a greeter for a little while.

Imagine literally painting yourself into a corner like this with nowhere to go. Do you just stand there awkwardly and wave at passersby? That's what I'd do!

3. Yep — that hat is never going to your S.O.

Because no amount spent on a gift is worth having to explain this lingo to your actual father. I'm sure it'll bring him a lot of awkward stares as he wears it around town, too.

4. Person in reflection not included.

Hey, if you can think of a better way to do this short of questing for an invisibility cloak, I'd like to hear it. Although, couldn't you take the pic from the side? Maybe that's too logical.

5. If you're going to get help from "the bank of mom and dad," you'll wanna ask the right questions.

This is definitely not one of those questions you want them involved in.

6. Still less brutal than Shrek the Third.

Uhh, I mean, I guess you can take a look at Shrek as if he were a comedian. Would do better on SNL than stand-up, though.

7. Eat fresh or die tryin'.

Hey, you really think the Colonel could survive all these years by eating nothing but fried chicken? He's gotta look after himself, no matter the cost.

8. I mean, half the time Keanu does pretty much anything, it's kinda awkward, right?

Definitely in a lovable way, though. That ancient vampire is still adjusting to the modern world, aww.

9. My mom would do this, 100%.

But it's up to you if you want to "mom-shame" her — I know I do every time my mom texts me asking how to text...like, what?

10. Never disregard a mom's ability to straight-up own you, though.

There's nothing quite like a casual roast in the form of a Snapchat from your mom. Gee, thanks a bunch, ma.

11. Siblings also have a duty to make you feel as awkward as possible.

This girl definitely wins in the "embarrassing your sister" department. At least it says she's clean — could've been way worse!

12. Hey, man — whatever floats your boat.

Just make sure to let that girl on your arm down easily. But, you know, the heart wants what the heart wants — love!

13. Slightly awkward, but hugely effective.

I can barely get my legs comfortable in one of those seats normally, let alone save spots like this. If I don't have a jacket, you don't have a seat saved.

14. The pen is mightier than the sweater.

Or, I guess in this case, they're pretty much equal. Not sure how you should feel when your fashion sense is so...stationary.

15. Dude, what? No...no, don't do that.

More stores need a policy on keeping thirsty boys at bay. Let's leave some personal space for the mannequins, okay? Even if they're not persons, per se.

16. And lastly, as if middle school isn't already awkward enough.

This poor kid got more than he bargained for with this thoughtful gift. A rose, by any other name, probably wouldn't smell like this.
