I like to consider myself the queen of all things awkward. I'm the kind of person who stumbles over my words as well as my feet, and I can't even walk. These people are certainly making me feel a lot better about myself. Go ahead and cringe along with me.

Placement is very important. Even if they'd placed the straw on top of his head, nobody would be overly alarmed. It's better to drink from a brain than a very personal area. I don't think I'm thirsty anymore.

2. I hope her water doesn't break

If you're going to be that awkward, you could at least include an "after" picture answering whether the others got soaked. I'm all for including the family in special moments, but whose idea was this?

I get it — sometimes you just want to get uncomfortable things done and over with, but maybe you should make sure you don't look like a douche in the process. Don't you know that you should never go backwards?

I'm not going to lie — I would probably make the same mistake. I connect everything with food, and sometimes it leaves me very hungry. I would like to hope that I would keep this mistake to myself.

They say that size doesn't matter, but I think that personal space does. This makes me really glad to be a woman with access to spacious washrooms.

6. They just spell it wrong anyways

I used to pause and consider properly spelling my name for them. I have since stopped, because there is just no point.

If that's not a good indication that you should freshen up your appearance, I don't know what is. I wonder if anyone tried to report him?

I was a surprise as well, but some things should be left out of the story. If this was my baby picture, I imagine my therapy bill would be very high.

This is one of the many reasons why I'm glad that wheelchair seating is very spacious. I don't understand how people can be so clueless.

I have yet to find an ice cream that actually makes me scream out loud. If I were to try this, I'd save the screaming for at home.

There is always that one friend who is more excited about the party than anyone else. I can say with certainty that person is not me.

12. What?!

I would love to be a fly on the wall just to understand the context of this awkward moment. This takes the phrase "personal bubble invasion" to a whole new level.

Just think of it this way: At least they didn't have to go on Jerry Springer or Dr. Phil to find that out.

I'm not going to lie — I'm obsessed with my pets. But this takes pet obsession to a whole new level. I wonder how the people making the shirts felt?

He doesn't know it yet, but he will regret this later. I've spent much of my adult life trying to forget my teenage awkwardness. For him, there's no escape.

16. Did you just eat that?

I don't know what's more awkward: photographic evidence of this person eating dog food, or having to explain to the dog that you ate it on him.
