Awkward moments are the worst. They are painful too. This is not the kind of pain that someone can inflict on your body. This pain in question here hurts the soul. These are the kind of moments that keep you up at night, even years after they happen. The level of cringe that exists in these moments makes your ancestors facepalm. These awkward moments are guaranteed to make you cringe.
This situation’s awkwardness is relatable and is in direct proportion to the number of people in the elevator. The more people, the more the elevator ride will make you cringe. Someone created elevator music likely for this purpose. However, the eclectic tunes of George Michael’s Careless Whisper could not do enough to battle the awkwardness. The funny part is that every individual in the elevator looks at the floor count hoping that it will go faster.
Mannequins are naturally great listeners. People often go to them with their problems and leave the conversations feeling much better. Mannequins make great therapists since you can vent to them without any fear of judgment. A conversation with a mannequin is always a safe space. However, the fact that mannequins are inanimate objects might occasionally make one feel awkward when they realize they weren’t speaking to a person. It might also make the person cringe for speaking so seriously to a glorified piece of plastic.
This is one of those awkward moments that everyone can relate to. When someone says something you can’t hear, and you just nod along, there’s always one thing you’re thinking. I hope whatever that person said wasn’t a question. That’s the worst. Especially when you’re being talked to around a large crowd who is also paying attention to your answer. Imagine being asked how your day was only for you to reply with “yes”. That lapse in hearing is sure to keep you up for a few nights.
