10 interactions socially awkward people are sick of having

first_imgTALKING TO PEOPLE is hard. We all know that. There are so many minefields and pitfalls and traps to fall into that it’s surprising we ever leave the house, to be honest.It’d be great if all of the following things could never happen to any of us, ever again. Can someone please sort that out for us?1. When you’re telling a story, but no one else is listening Source: ReplygifAnd you just fade away, getting quieter and quieter and quieter.It’s possible that the one person who notices this happening gets more embarrassed than than you.2. Realising halfway through a story that you have no point/punchline Source: Flickr/William WardAt this moment your brain goes into overdrive thinking up ways to save yourself. Admit you forgot your point, or make one up? Extremely risky territory.3. When the ‘hilarious’ video you show everyone is met with dead silence“I swear it’s funny…wait until you see this bit!

When you’re the only one who thinks your story/joke is funny Source: TumblrYou’re cracking up. Everyone else is gazing at you with sorrow in their eyes. You know you need to stop, but god it’s just. So. Funny.10. Asking who/what people are talking about Source: ShutterstockYou missed the first part of the conversation and you’re not quite sure what’s going on.
