    Person 1: Good thanks, how are you?
    Me: I'm great, how are you?

    Genuinely cannot recall my last awkward social interaction. Maybe if you stop being weird and odd you'd have less socially awkward moments OP, I cannot stress how important practice is for this sort of thing. Get out there and exercise your brain to perceive and interpret social cues.

    This didn't happen long ago... basically when the "dinner lady" (sorry, this was a canteen at uni, don't know the right term for this) asked "Would you like rice with this?" I just nodded. I didn't know that the dish she was holding was meant for the person behind me in the queue! Well she handled the situation brilliantly (without shouting at me, just saying to the dinner lady "oh sorry, I didn't want the rice, thanks") and then my ]dish came.

    (I think I've already posted this in another thread)

    Too many to list. Pretty much every single social interaction I make is the most embarrassing one.

    When I started school and everyone went to the same previous school except me. Made it much harder to make friends, though I eventually did.

    this guy was saying something about his brother
    i asked if it was the fat one
    he goes 'dont call my brother fat'
    and i wanted to slap him

    i usually react to people talking down to me like that, especially from that mug, but that day i didnt for some reason, which made it kinda awkward.

    When I was introduced to a girl a few years ago:

    Me: "Hi, how are you?"
    Her: "Good thanks, how are you?"
    Me: "Good."
    *Ten seconds of excruciating awkwardness as we kind of stared at each other*
    Her: (turns to her friend)
    Her: "Can you get him away from me, please?"

    I was quite the conversationalist.

    Classy.

    Mine would be the time I was kissing my partner goodbye and an old lady walked past and said 'ooh look at you two! young love!' and winked. I didn't know where to look.
