“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”
Another selection of those awkward moments we all experience as we journey through life. Some make you laugh, some make you angry, but all of them make you feel a little bit stupider that you really thought you were.
That awkward moment when you realize you left the rest room with your dress tucked into your undies.
(Definitely haven’t managed that one yet, but I know someone who has.)
That awkward moment when you accidentally fart doing sit-ups at the Gym.
(Hey, another gold medal possibility if they make it an Olympic sport. For ‘accidentally’ read ‘inevitably’.)
That awkward moment when you see someone coming your way after you’ve just farted.
(Why do you think people take dogs with them for walks?)
That awkward moment when your girlfriend asks you if you love her more than your car.
(There’s only one answer to this one.)
That awkward moment when you bend down and your pants rip and you’re wearing floral underwear.
That awkward moment when you get caught in the rain in a cheesecloth dress, and really big underwear.
(I told you I don’t wear dresses, but seen it happen, very funny. Really big underwear, also known to us men folk as, ‘kidney warmers’. Sorry ladies.)
That awkward moment when someone walks in while you’re changing.
(Can be just as awkward when you walk in on someone else – or not – depending.)
That awkward moment when you confidently say the wrong answer aloud in class.
(And then try to turn the whole thing into a bad joke.)
That awkward moment when someone is doing the dishes and you slowly put another dish in the sink.
(Just do it with a smile and you’ll be okay. But only do it once.)
That awkward moment when you are trying to impress someone on the dance-floor but you dance into a pole.
(Prefer to watch other people dance where there are poles.)
That awkward moment when you think the trash can is a stool.
(So why hasn’t anyone invented a trash can that doubles as a stool – or is that a crap idea?)
The awkward moment when your friends make plans right in front of you, and the plans don’t include you.
(I can take a hint.)
That awkward moment when you’re so tired from taking a nap that you feel like to have to take another nap to get over your nap.
(Oh yes, the nap recovery nap nap!)
That awkward moment when you lose your bikini top in the surf.
(Not a problem for me, but I see the point…er..points??)
That awkward moment when you are on the beach and someone has told you that your tampon string is hanging out of your bikini.
(What does one do, and where does one do it?)
That awkward moment when you don’t know where to stand to pull your wedgie out without being noticed.
(Impossible to do without being seen. Impossible to do and still look elegant.)
That awkward moment when your neighbor starts talking to you while you’re hanging out your underwear.
(Hi there, washing the smalls today?)
That awkward moment when one heel flies off your high heels on the dance floor.
(It still baffles me why women wear high heels and how they can walk in them – or not, see videos.)
High heels fall 1
High heels fall 2

The fart machine guy in the gym is hilarious. As a teacher, I recall bending over and ripping my pants. Fortunately, as a science teacher, going to a lab coat was immediate help.
It always amazes me how normally sensible people can crack up at the sound of a well timed fart, but they do, big time. I bought a cousin of mine one of those machines a few years ago and they are definitely good fun.
Been there, done that with the pants thing too, no lab coat but thankfully no floral undies either.
Thanks for your comments.
One of my favorite videos. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4gK3RRtCHw
LOL very good. Certainly a bad time to do it!!!
I knew a guy who worked in a mortuary and he told me that corpses really do fart – most unnerving for the uninitiated I would imagine.
My favorite video is this one with Peter Sellers, a noted giggler at the best of times…..
Very good as I haven’t seen that one.
The High Heals Fails are hilarious.. primarily because this is basically the extent of these people’s work; to walk in completely ridiculous shoes. And what was up with that watering can looking thing?
Maybe they were trying to chew some gum at the same time. Re the watering can, I have no clue why someone thought that would be a good idea.
LOL! But certainly fashionable!
Can’t say I’ve had the dress in the undies problem. Then again, I prefer skirts. Easier to co-ordinate with.
“Kidney warmers”? Never heard that – always knew them as “granny panties”.
Who do you love more? Well, have YOU ever slept with your car? (Note the preposition – not IN, but WITH. If the answer is yes, how the heck did you get a girl? I’m STILL trying to figure that one out myself!)
Dancing into a pole makes me think of my favourite pastime in Chicago – watching guys watching girls. I’ve seen guys walk into lamp posts (ouch!), fire hydrants (DOUBLE ouch), and even into wire trash cans. Literally into, as in they hit the rim and flipped headfirst into the bin. Saw it more than once – great slapstick! 😀
Watching your fellowman make a complete ass of himself is always amusing. If you had a video camera today you could probably make a good living selling the results to those blooper shows on tv that are so popular.
sooo funny again…tampon string never happened thankfully!
Not to me anyway. LOL
i would worry if it did happen to you!
And so you should! Thank you. 🙂
yes so don’t make me worry…lol
