You know that feeling when you’ve just created or encountered a moment so awkward that you wish you could spontaneously mutate into some sort of tropical tortoise so you could hide away in your shell and live in seclusion on an island forever, the last of your kind? Well, turns out Twitter is full of moments like that.
Cringe and laugh along. It’s quite a ride.
11. Cute stories
I mean I’ll bet she would probably still let you though if you asked nice enough.
I saw a girl carrying a hamster so I asked if I could pet it but it was actually a muffin so I'm on my way to jump of a cliff now

10. Right to the chase
This is why calling your parents is overrated.
*calling my folks*
Me: “Hey, mom, just wondering how you guys are doing—“

9. Hang tight
And that, kids, is how I met your mother.
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

8. The truth comes out
Sounds like you both had a very bad time.
I surprised my Girlfriend at work this morning.
Came up behind her and kissed her on the neck
She Laughed and said “Mike stop you know we’re at work”

7. Come on, Becky
Yeah, you oop. You oop harder than anybody’s oop’ed before.

Bruh you need to change your identity and move to Scotland or something after that.
I once walked into Subway, asked for a "mootball feetlong", said "shit" directly afterwards, then walked out. I can never go back.

3. Swipe back
Oh god I hope they had to sit next to each other on the flight.
My flight was delayed 3 hours so I was doing what any human does when they’re bored. Minding my own business swiping through tinder & the guy behind me goes “ouch hard no for that one?” And I turn around ONLY TO SEE THE MAN I JUST SWIPED NO ON BEHIND ME HAHAHA

2. Checking out
Ah. Well, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go deposit myself in the vault forever.
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

1. A dry spell
Little girls are just the most twisted creatures, I swear.
i have a very vivid memory of a girl in primary school asking how to spell my name just so she could add me to her “not invited to my party” list 😬

This list made me cringe so hard I had to read parts of it with my fingers blocking my face like a horror movie. Still. Pretty entertaining.
