31 of the Most Awkward Situations People Have Been in With a Stranger
Any encounter you have with a stranger has the potential to be awkward, no matter how brief the interaction is. However, it’s probably best to be in a hauntingly cringeworthy situation with a guest star in your life rather than a recurring cast member — after all, you’ll likely never have to see that guest star again, while a main cast member you’re pretty much stuck with forever.
Redditors got open and honest about the awkward encounters they’ve had with people they pray they’ll never see again, and they’ve mostly embraced the humiliation by laughing at themselves. We’re incredibly grateful for that, because one person’s gaffe when asking a Toys ‘R’ Us clerk for a “large Woody” is a story that absolutely needs to be shared.
