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.

1. If you don’t know how to shower by now…

This might not work out.

Hope they have showers there.

Just a regular day at the saloon …..

6. That’s very specifically open-minded.

You might want to have more of a chat first.

At least buy a guy dinner first.

7. It’s just a pen.

Holy buckets.

Isn’t this a little excessive for losing a pen?

8. A bit of a tangent.

Still a helpful review though I guess.

9. But not while running.

Is this a cry for help?

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

It’s a fine line.
