Small Talk Six - Awkward.

smalltalksix3001

I'm posting this early... because it's done. And tomorrow, I'm going to try and be wireless and actually spend the day with my family... so, we'll see...

Today's Small Talk Six topic, over at MomDot.com is...

"6 things other people do that make you personally uncomfortable"

That's a good question... I had to think kinda hard about times I've been uncomfortable... so how about these...

It makes me uncomfortable when others...

1. Trip and Fall. Thats always a little weird. Do you look, do you not look? Is she okay? I don't want to embarrass her even more, but I am concerned...

2. Insult or start a fight. That's just rude, and unless you wanna beef with the bully - you... just... sit.... there?!

3. Let a secret slip. Anyone's secret - if I know it was not supposed to be talked about, and it slips - that's just bad. Someone is gonna pay for that.

4. Gossip. Particularly when friends gossip about friends... I hate that. That has got to be one of the most difficult situations to be in. Either way you lose. It's just not. cool.

5. Get intoxicated. Especially when it's the wrong time and wrong place... and they start getting loud... oh boy!

6. Show up at a party specifically uninvited. Sheesh. That's the magic recipe for D.R.A.M.A.

How about you? What makes you uncomfortable?

I agree with #5, totally uncomfortable moments there. We have a relative that does that sometimes and it is beyond embarrassing to me.

I'm with you on #3. My hubby is the worst at keeping secrets, and it drives me insane!

Wow, that's a tough one. It makes me uncomfortable when I'm with my mom somewhere and she disapproves of someone or something someone is doing. She tells me about it REALLY loud so that the person is sure to hear!

It's so embarrassing!

Gossip, I totally agree . I was think that if they are willing to gossip you are almost forsure that they gossip about you ! So then you are wondering what they say about you !

Gossip stinks. You shouldn't say anything about anyone that you wouldn't say to their face.

Well thought out list. You're number 1 just made me laugh.

I agree - when people trip and fall, I try not to laugh, but a lot of times, it's REALLY hard for me not to!

I am so with you on number #3. I never know how to act when people trip either.

I don't like it when people gossip either. You wonder if they say such things around you about other people, what do they say about you when you're not around.
