That Awkward Moment [No Longer Available]

I’m really not a big fan of the “That Awkward Moment” meme or any “#thatawkwardmoment” Twitter trends. If people would start saying, “Have you ever experienced that awkward moment when…” or “I just had an awkward moment in which…” I would be satisfied, but no. I’m not satisfied, and I never will be. I might as well get over it.

However, That Awkward Moment features many of these meme-type statements, and some of them are actually pretty funny. I am willing to bet that most if not all of them are based on true stories, so they are all worth looking at.

Oh, Reddit. With a site that has a population so big and variety of topics so wide, there are bound to be a few awkward comments strewn about the playing field. Sure, you could browse the site for hours and find them yourself, but you could also check out subreddits like r/BestOf and r/WorstOf to find a few out-of-the-ordinary statements.

With Reddit, there is the reminder of you aren’t who you really are on the Internet. You can say whatever you want, and no one will judge you. They will only judge the person that is your username.


When Parents Text

I found another awkward text site, but this time around, it’s all about the parents. Riding under the tagline, “Small keypad, old hands” (which I find to be rather relative), the site features the most awkward statements that parents say via text.

Granted, like anything else in this article, I can’t guarantee the validity of every bit of information. However, I can guarantee some laughter 3 Video Games That Actually Made Me Laugh Out Loud [MUO Gaming] Video games have come a long way in terms of telling a story.
