Life is full of awkward human interactions.
They happen all the time at work, at school, out in public, everywhere.
And if one of these encounters is memorable, you just know you’re going to share it with all your friends, because these kinds of stories are usually hilarious and cringeworthy.
And, luckily for us, these people decided to share their awkward interactions with THE WHOLE WORLD because they did it on Twitter. And we thank them for that!
Because these are very funny and very awkward. And what better combination is there than that?
How about we take a look and see what exactly went down…
1. Oh…sorry about that.
Well, they should’ve told you!
i seriously need a job where i don’t have to interact with people. I just asked a table if they were celebrating anything and when they said their dad’s bday i brought them a bday table decoration and THEN they decide to tell me he’s not coming because he’s dead…….

2. This is incredible.
You can pretty much never leave the house again.
The elevator doors opened up and a guy walked in the elevator. It was just me and him in there and he said “I love you.” And I’m not rude so I said “I love you too”.
He gave me a weird look and pointed at his Bluetooth.

3. Just hold me…
It was Monday, we can let it slide.
Meant to say “hold on for a second” and “give me a minute” to a customer and it came out as “hold me for a second” what a monday

4. I will pray for you.
Actually, I’ll pray for BOTH of you.
I work at a bank and this lady came in with a $150,000 check and to make conversation I was like "oh wow I wish I had one of these" then she deadass was like "it's a life insurance check. I would rather have the person." pic.twitter.com/3FXUdPdO88

6. Do you need these in a bag?
You’re just doing your job…kind of…
at Dick’s, it is a habit of mine to ask customers if they want their items in a bag after they check out.
today, a woman came up to the register with 2 kayaks to buy.
after ringing them up, i looked her dead in the eye and said “would you like these in a bag?”

7. Drink up and be somebody!
I wonder how the rest of the date went.
My roommate went on a bumble date and was nervous so decided to pound shots in her car once she got to the place they were meeting and the guy was parked next to her and watched her chug vodka for 5 minutes.
Dating is rough.

8. Like a horror movie.
Time to find a new dentist.
MY DENTIST ASKED HIS ASSISTANT TO SUCTION (THE WATER OUT OF MY MOUTH)BUT I THOUGHT HE WAS TALKING TO ME SO I SUCKED HIS FINGER. IM MORTIFIED

9. What a coincidence!
I bet he was mortified!
Karma – the guy who pushed past me on the tube and then suggested I go F myself just arrived for his interview…with me…

10. Who are you?
That’s very uncomfortable.
I am at a food truck and this guy walks up and says ”I’ll have my usual” and the guy working says “I don’t know who the hell you are.”

11. Hello, there.
That didn’t work out well at all.
3 years ago, a cute guy I worked with wanted to give me a fist bump…I thought he was pretending to hold an invisible microphone so I leaned forward and said hello https://t.co/GjlhegAjja

12. Oh, right, I’m here for coffee.
That can be confusing.
I blanked when I got to the counter at Starbucks and said “vodka soda” and she said “huh” and I said “huh” and then we stared at each other until I remembered I was there for coffee.

13. What about you?
Well, I’m here cutting your hair, so…
Went to get a haircut today.
Barber: What do you do for a living?
Me: I'm a writer, what about you?
Barber: ……… I'm a barber
We didn't speak for the rest of the haircut. I am happy to announce that I shall never be interacting with another human being again.

14. Congratulations to both of you!
Why do people break up at dinner? Never understood that.
my roommate broke up with his girlfriend last night at a fancy restaurant and she started bawling…. everyone thought he proposed to her and started clapping.
