Forgetting a belt. Or missing a loop.
Not zipping up the zipper post-bathroom activities.
Not having money for a cab (and convincing the cabbie you love Muslims and would never try this).
Forgot a button on the shirt (or blouse - not that we mind about the blouse).
Coffee spill from tipping the cup too early. Swing and a miss.
Can't Help Yourself
Picking your nose.
Singing a song alone...then someone shows up mid-verse.
Caught staring at a beautiful person.
Cleavage. See above.
Sneeze on a person (or in a person's food).
Take a phone call into a crowded elevator. We hate you.
It's Not Your Fault, Will Hunting
Unfinished food in your teeth.
Going to the bathroom while on a date (or the impending flatulent).
Why do your armpits decide to sweat to the 10th power while on a date?
A glaring pimple or whitehead.
Trying to communicate with a loud voice at a bar. Then the music stops while you're blurting out, "she couldn't get my pants off!"
Cubs hat worn at a Sox game (and vice versa).
Last seat on the El is next to the homeless guy. And he smells...
Screaming your head off (vulgarities included) at a Bears game, only to realize there is a 6 year old kid in front of you. Judging you.
Using the CTA bus as a mirror to check your hair. The passengers staring at you in disgust.
Critical Mass passes on the upcoming street...can't I just blow through them all? This is a personal thought - I can't stand your little "ride" for your right to assemble. How about my right to drive on a street not congested with annoying people? Stop it!
I urge all readers to add to the list of the awkward little things...too many come up in our crazy lives!
