Have you ever had that specific experience, the one where you think you know where a conversation was going and then all of the sudden BAM – it turns a direction you literally never saw coming?

Those can be uncomfortable, but they can also be hilarious – and these 10 posts are all about sharing the times things escalated way too quickly.

I love the way people’s minds work, I swear. As long as they’re being weird funny and not just weird.
