9 Awkward Moments

No one likes to feel awkward. Whether its a clumsy move, a poor choice of words, or simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time, we have all experienced those moments when we really wish there was a place to hide. Let’s take a peek into the awkward moments of somebody else’s lives, interesting how it becomes funny then!

Family Portraits


How in the world do you explain this one to your friends 10 years later? I don’t know whether this is funny or extremely creepy…I’m going with creepy!




In case you don’t know…”sharting” is when you hope to just pass gas, but end up with mud in your pants. Very uncool to do in private, much worse in public.


Denied at Checkout


Maybe you entered your PIN wrong, maybe you forgot about that last transaction, but now you are holding up the line, wondering what to do.

Not Now!


Sometimes it seems that they have a mind of their own and decide to say “Hi!” when we least want them to. I guess that’s one way to keep her on her toes, and the ballerina really doesn’t seem to mind!

Cracked Up


I’m sure a lot of women have experienced that awkward moment after surfacing from a dive and realizing your bikini top is still in the pool. Katy Perry doesn’t have that problem as she gets caught letting it all hang out at this waterpark.Ouch!



Here is what looks like another awkward moment at the water, Is she stuck? Pretty impressive you must say!

7) “That’s My Boy!”


Sometimes our kids will do things to put the parents in potentially awkward situations. This wasn’t the boy’s mother in this pic, hopefully she doesn’t turn around quick and see dad standing there.

“That’s My Bat!”


Sometimes, during the heat of an intense sporting event, an awkward moment may surface. The thing is, the atmosphere in this picture doesn’t look like its very intense… you gotta wonder about those guys from Boston ha.

“Have You Seen My Watch?”


Here is another awkward pair of athletes, it looks like Carlos Teves should have used more KY!

Ok, enough foolishness. Did any of these images make you feel awkward?


We are all human and we are all guaranteed to say or do something stupid in our lifetimes. Probably more than once. The trick is to not let it bother you, laugh it off and move on.

As horrified as you might feel when it happens, you will most likely look back on it someday with amusement.
