There's nothing quite like replaying the embarrassment of an awkward moment in your head while trying to fall asleep. We all have them: a text sent to the wrong person, the accidental holding of the wrong hand, or the horrible realization that you severely misunderstood something in a conversation and said the wrong thing.
However, these people's awkward moments raise the bar of awkwardness to a whole new level.
"Excuse Me, Do You Mind Moving Your Crates Of Carrots So I Can Back Out?"
No good act goes unpunished.
Do you try to get the market to move so you can drive your car out, or do you awkwardly buy kettle corn and loiter until the vendors pack up?

I wonder if the guy still ordered though.
This Kid Is Probably Grounded For Eternity
The best part about this is not even the family tension this situation could cause or how hilarious this must have been to explain in the emergency room.
It's the fact that the son brought his bow with him to the hospital.
But Nurse, I'm Baby.
I don't know what's more awkward: having to spend time with a nurse who thinks you can't fill out a basic form correctly, or having to admit you have the same symptoms as an infant.
To be fair, almost every parent can relate to this.

This Referee Let The Calls Get Out Of Hand
In the referee's defense, what team makes the player with one arm take the throw in?

She Took A Hike For An Instagram Photo... In The Backyard
Twitter user @carlysos3 exposed her Instagram influencer sister with this tweet that read, "my sister said she was going hiking.....this is our backyard."
Okay, it's still technically hashtag nature. Leave her alone.

Hopefully, she only received silent judgment from the hygienist.
These Enormous Jeans Require No Justification
This isn't an awkward situation. In fact, it's a situation where the poster walked away with an absolute win.

Truly A Teenage Dirtbag
Consider this his rite of passage. More importantly, this is his version of a Barmitzvah.

This Breakup That People Thought Was A Milestone Moment

Time To Evict Your Roommate
Imagine waking up one day to find out your roommate opens their bread like this. If this isn't a sign to pack up and move out, I don't know what is.

The Only Option After This Interaction Is To Leave The Party And Never Go To A Social Gathering Ever Again
It's great that this woman is trying to look out for her fellow woman, but remember that looks can be deceiving. I'm sure this old man is perfectly harmless.
Honestly, I hope the random woman and the "dirty, old man" live happily ever after.
My High School Health Class Was Traumatizing, But Not Like This
I'm glad these are only photos and not videos, because I have no idea what the teacher could possibly be saying during this class and also have no desire to find out.

Dinner Probably Involved A Lot Of SIlent Chewing
There's nothing quite like accidentally starting beef with your grandmother.

She Was Physically Present, But Mentally Absent During Roll Call
In her defense, the name and religion do sound the exact same.
I guess we have to give her props for sticking by her faith despite the embarrassment that definitely followed this mishap.

This Guy Who Was His Own Hypeman But Didn't Realize People Could See

This Person Crowdfunding A Divorce For A Friend

Just Remove The Stickers For Everyone's Sake
Anyone who is over 25-years old and still has childish stickers on their vehicles, get rid of them. You're doing them a favor by making them look more mature and finally give up on their 12-year old self.
It's hard to grow up, but even harder to explain to the cops why you have 13 My Little Pony stickers all over your car.

Well, That's A Sight To Walk In On
Picture this: you've left the dog outside to run around and do his business for only a few minutes while you were also watering the grass.
