Whether you are one of those fantastically accomplished adults or you are so passable that you are hanging on to your adult card by the skin of your teeth, there are some situations that are just never going to be comfortable, even if you pretend really really hard that you’re cool with it.
Pre job interview when you are sat with the other candidate.
Any medical exam of your ‘downstairs area’. Jokes do not make this less awkward.
Realising you are walking the wrong way and not having a phone or a watch to pretend to check.
Seeing someone outside the coffee shop you are sat in, so getting up to knock really hard on the window…but they don’t see you, despite the fact you are always in said coffee shop and the person you are trying to alert knows that.
Tripping and falling whilst alone and having nobody to laugh about it with.
When a dog buries it’s head in your crotch, just that little bit too long.
Farting in a meeting.
Getting the giggles at a funeral.
Your boss continually pronouncing your name wrong.
Falling into an old man’s lap on the bus.
When a child looks at you sweetly and says “Why are you ugly?”
Bumping into someone who you don’t immediately recognise, but then realise you hooked up with whilst very drunk.
When, as an adult, you are left in the living room of a friend’s house whilst they change and their housemate, who you’ve never met comes back, and finds you lurking.
Not liking your haircut when the hairdresser holds up the mirror.
Then there’s this one. Asking for money.
It takes a lot of time and effort for me to create these blog posts and draw bad pictures of cats. I absolutely love doing it, but loving it doesn’t pay my enormous credit card bill or pay for a roof over my head. So here’s a link to my Patreon account.
If you value the content I am sharing with you, and the time it takes to create it, I would be so grateful if you could become a patron. I want to be able to spend as much time as possible creating content to share with you all and working on improving what I put out, but I can only do that with your help!
