    978 – Forgetting Someone’s Name…After They Just Told It To You 

    Let’s be honest. Half the time when we ask someone, “What’s your name?” we’re just being social. It’s one of the few questions that we know we can safely ask any stranger we have nothing to say to, giving us those few precious seconds to desperately try and think of a more interesting topic to bring up…well…that’s what I do anyway.

    Sometimes, you just don’t think you’ll ever need to know that person’s name. They’re a stranger to you. You only ask because it’s polite. You ask only because you have nothing else to say to them and sometimes, you don’t even realise that you actually asked them what their name is. It’s kinda like saying “How you doin’!”, you ask only because that’s just what people say to people they don’t know.

    Well, there’s all that, but honestly speaking (for men anyway), there’s a very good chance that we were far too busy looking at your boobs to listen to pretty much anything you ever said, let alone your name…sorry, we’re men…we’re awful…I know, I know.

    It’s safe to say, we don’t always remember people’s names. It ‘s bad enough to forget the name of a person you met a long time ago, that can happen to anyone. It’s downright shameful to meet someone new. To introduce yourselves to each other and just 3 minutes later be faced with the need to introduce that person to other people.

    You find yourself in that position where you start uttering the words “…this is…” you point at your new friend and “…”, you draw a complete blank.  You start recalling the entire conversation you had with this person. You remember them say “I’m ¿*”⌐sh“. You now have a clue to what the name is, but you don’t know for sure. Something inside you says “Tash!”, but you’re just not sure if Tash was the last person you met or the other person before that. Tash could be a completely different person.

    You’re now faced with a decision; say “…Tash” and risk getting the name completely wrong. Or openly admit to this person that you’re (at that very moment) introducing to other people, that you can’t remember their name. The simple name they literally just told you…shame on you.
    Worst of all is when this complete stranger actually had the decency to remember your name and they openly address you by it when they talk to you. They cared enough about who you were to actually remember your name. You didn’t. Then, you’re just the jerk that doesn’t bother remembering people’s names. And how self-absorbed is that?

    Forgetting someone’s name (when they literally just told it to you) is…AWKWARD!!

    980 – Caught Lying Red-Handed 

    Everybody lies.

    Some people tell bigger lies than others, some tell lots of small pointless lies and some rare individuals actually make a living out of it.
    Lying can actually be healthy. I can build relationships (For example: “I love you” or “You’re the best sex I’ve ever had” – the two most common lies in the world :P) and a little white lie can get you out of trouble. Things become extremely awkward for you when people start probing your poorly constructed bullsh*t and your house of cards comes crashing down.

    Some people never admit that they’re lying despite the insurmountable damning evidence. They’d rather keep up a lie and in fact lie even more than admit that they are being deceitful. The motto is “Deny! Deny! Deny. It doesn’t matter how obvious it is that I’m telling a lie, I’ll still deny“. (More …)

      Who lies the most?? I will go with women simply because they talk more. But whose lies are the worst? Men, of course. When they lie, they LIE.

      But yes, getting caught in THAT moment is awkward. No lie there.

        I think that’s exactly the other way round. Men tell more lies (No honey, that dress doesn’t make you look fat”, “Of course I care about our anniversary”.

        But when women lie, it’s often a massive, well orchestrated one. Did you know that as high as 1 in 4 men in the modern world today is UNKNOWINGLY raising a child that’s not his? How much bigger can a lie get than that?

    984 – Running Into A Facebook Friend & Having Nothing Interesting To Talk About 

    Online, everyone’s got the wit of a gossip columnist. Never underestimate the effect that the extra minute that online chats grant you, can have on a person’s personality

    Unfortunately, reality has a way of turning the smart, witty, super funny persona you had going into the dull one you really are. Accidentally running into what you thought was a funny & interesting Facebook friend usually disappoints everybody involved. And it always leaves a bad taste of “awkward” stuck in your mouth

    It usually starts off simply enough. A mutual friend posts up a picture status update. You comment. Someone named “Alex” comments. You poke a little fun at this “Alex” person’s comment. “Alex” pokes fun at your profile pic. You take exception and start bantering with “Alex”. Before you know it, you & “Alex” are Facebook friends. (More …)

      What can also be awkward is when you actually know the person in real life, talk to them all the time on FaceBook, but then can’t manage more than 2 lines of dialogue when you see each other in real life >.>

    985 – Being Alone In A Crowded Bar 

    Do you know that scene in the movies where the attractive leading man sits alone in a bar drinking scotch and he meets an equally attractive woman that also happens to be alone?

    Yeah that doesn’t happen in real life.

    Not to Average Joes like you and I. The best we get is the slightly overweight, middle-aged single mom that’s enjoying her first “night out” with her girlfriends since she had her baby (she will very likely tell you all this herself by the way…in excruciating detail). In reality, nobody ever speaks to the guy in the bar by himself. Do you? That’s why being alone in a crowded bar sucks. (More …)

    987 – The Unwanted Boner, At Exactly The Wrong Moment 

    A lot’s got to be said about the benefits of being a man. We don’t have to bare children (thank God), we pee wherever we want and we don’t really get judged for the number of people we sleep with. It’s hard to deny that our awkward anatomy does give us certain advantages.

    Now if only it would learn to stay down when you tell it to.

    It happens to the best of us. Sometimes you can feel it coming and you know you have plenty of time before you need to stand up. It’s those rare moments when you find yourself fighting a bulge in your pants, at exactly the moment you need to stand up and leave, that things get stiff.

    Maybe you’re on the train, minding your own own business reading a newspaper. You’re skimming through the pages, looking at a few stories as you go along, when you come across that one picture. You don’t know why or how, but this one picture stirs up instinctual desire in you and you suddenly find yourself flashing back into one of your old sexual memories. (More …)

    988 – The Walk Of Shame 

    There is no phrase more appropriate for the walk of shame, than “The Walk Of Shame“. It’s exactly what it says on the tin. You’re walking home, and you feel a little ashamed…perfect.

    Every Sunday morning, make it a point to sit on your balcony (between the hours of 6am & 10am) and count how many shamed walkers go past, you’ll be surprised how many of them there are (people are getting laid out there, don’t be left behind, go have some fun of your own ;-)). They’re very easy to spot too,  just look for anyone that’s dressed up far too nicely for a Sunday morning, or inappropriately for the weather.

    The women are usually the easiest to spot, they “clip clop” down the street, their heads hanging so low their messed up hair covers their faces. Shame oozes out of them. The men on the other hand, strut. It’s like they want the world to know they just got some. You can tell that they’re just hoping for someone to ask “Where are you coming from?“, to which the answer will probably be something along the lines of THIS. (More …)

    991 – Watching A Sex Scene On Your First Date 

    There’s a strange dynamic that occurs on date first date. Especially early when you’ve just met ad you’re not sure where, or how far things a going to go. While the guy is gently trying to nudge things closer to sex, the girl usually feels the social pressure to wait until the second or third date before she sleeps with the man (of course, some women don’t bother waiting).

    So watching a sex scene on your first date, before you’ve even made up your minds about how attracted to each other you are can get…awkward.

    From a man’s perspective, if you’ve managed to get a woman comfortable enough with you to maintain physical contact, the last thing you want to do when a steamy sex scene plays out, is to let her feel you twitch or shift at that precise moment.
    It might not be the worst thing in the world, but being reactive in that situation could easily be misinterpreted as a poorly timed, overly eager first move. It’s just not a good look.

    AWKWARD!

    992 – Walking Into The Wrong Toilets 

    Creativity is great, We all love creative ideas, but sometimes certain situations call for simplicity and messing with things is bound to create awkward situations for everybody.
    Case in point; toilet signs that are just too damn clever for their own good.

    There should be a law against confusing public toilet signs, especially in places that serve alcohol. Sometimes when nature calls, she screams at the top of her lungs and you’re just too in a rush to stop and evaluate the damn signs. (More …)
