Talk about awkward..

Have you ever experienced moments when you wish the earth would open up and swallow you whole? I wish that everyday because something embarrassing always happens to me. They call me Awkward Aaliyah. I am learning how to laugh at myself now. It’s a slow and hard process and I am hoping I am able to learn quickly before the Earth literally opens up and swallows me (that is,when I die and go to my grave). Sit back,relax and no, don’t drink your tea coz you might end up snorting it through your nose. List is long.You have been warned.

The awkward moment when :

  • you smile at a fellow hijabi and she doesn’t return the smile. In fact she looks at you with a deathly stare. Like why you do this to me? We are on the same team man.
  • you see a friend from afar and shout her name and wave excitedly while running up to her only to realise she is not your friend and then walk awkwardly back to your spot (that walk of shame).
  • you are at a party and an aunty enters so you get up and extend your hand and she walks past you leaving you hanging and then you have to bring back your hand to the side with everyone witnessing that fail moment.
  • you do a hi five with a friend and they leave you hanging.
  • you are at a party and while meeting someone you never know whether to stop after two head shakes or three.

  • Or when you both turn your head at the same moment and in the same direction and end up face to face real close.
  • you are avoiding someone so you whip out your phone and pretend to text while walking past that person and bump into a pole, attracting the attention of the avoidee.
  • you are drinking fruit juice during a lecture and at the exact same moment that the lecturer goes quiet you make a slurpy noise. Loud. Everyone stares at you.
  • you ask the lady at the store whether a certain piece of clothing comes in your dress size aaaand you realize she does not work there and is a customer just like you.
  • a random person says hi and you respond warmly only to realise they are talking to someone on their bluetooth or earphones (Painfully awkward).
  • someone waves at you and you wave back and then realise that the person was waving to someone behind you (Mega awkward).
  • you are on the train and laugh out loud at something you are reading and everyone looks at you.
  • Or when you recall something funny and start laughing out of nowhere and everyone looks at you weirdly.
  • Or when you you talk to yourself forgetting it is a weird concept to some people.
  • you offer your seat on the tram/train to an old lady and she rebukes you for insinuating the fact she is old. And this is a white lady. Not even desi aunty. Gurrl, if you wanna look young, at least dye your hair.
  • someone says no offense and then proceeds to say the most offensive thing ever. And you have to pretend you didn’t get offended because after all they did warn you beforehand with the “no offense” (If you do that, kindly stop. You have got two ears and one tongue (a.k.a listen more, speak less. Also think before you speak. Also I shall punch you if you like being so brutally excruciatingly honest of your opinions. Not really but I do mentally fancy punching you.)
  • you are wearing heels and your feet goes woiiinngg in front of people.

  • a white friend asks if you got a boyfriend yet or sells tickets to her club where she is the DJ. In your mum’s presence.
  • an aunty asks your mum whether she is looking for a guy for you in front of you and you don’t know where to look.
  • an aunty asks your mum for your photograph.
  • an aunty clicks a photo of you not so subtly.
  • an aunty wonders how she got so fat because she used to be so skinny when she was young while stuffing her mouth with food.
  • you attend a wedding in India and call this random dude in white suit as waiter bhaiyya,zara plate lete aana (Waiter!! Bring a plate) and it turns out he is the bride’s brother.
  • a little kid at a party insists on calling you aunty loudly all the time because you are hanging out with aunties.
  • Also when you call an aunty, “aunty” and she grimaces because she is a young 50 year old aunty who could totally pass off as your younger sister, and how could one be so blind to dare call her aunty? Appi/didi/baaji is the appropriate term of endearment.
  • When an uncle or aunty makes a mistake and the Gammar nazi/English tutor in you is itching to correct but it’s rude so you end up looking constipated.
  • someone gives an oxymoronic compliment such as “oh but you are pretty for an Indian” and you don’t know whether to be flattered at the insult or insulted by the compliment.
  • someone asks you stereotypical questions such as “How are you Indian and a Muslim? How are you Indian and fair? OMG you totally don’t have that Indian accent” and on and on “You don’t look like an Indian at alll. I thought you were from so and so country. So are you like full Indian or half? (I often wonder if there is a typical Indian look that they have in mind. I mean India is such a diverse country).
  • you attend a Pakistani party and all of them are bashing Indians verbally.
  • you attend a Pakistani party and they ask which part of Pakistan you are from and when you say Indian, they all go ” Ohhh I love Shah Rukh Khan and have you watched Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham?, I looove that movie” and start complimenting Mother India like they are Indians themselves. It is so delightfully awkward.No offense to my Pakistani friends and readers. I love y’all. Y’all are mad cute.
  • a random stranger suddenly starts speaking in Arabic and after you have checked whether they are indeed talking to you and are not on their headphones, you wait for them to complete their paragraph before apologizing on not understanding. Its awkward for you at first and then become awkward for the poor chap.
  • When you and your friends are discussing someone and you turn around and that person is seated on the table beside you. And you weren’t being too hushed in your discussion either. So now you awkwardly smile wondering if they heard you.
  • When you meet someone and they have something stuck on their tooth. Or booger on their nose.And you can’t look away even if you wanted to because they have some extremely exciting news to share.
  • you are stalking someone on social media and accidentally like their photo or status from 3 years ago (A friendly tip : Create a fake account for stalking so if you do like something, no harm done).
  • an aunty’s baby is crying so loud you want to scratch your hair out (hijab in my case) and the aunty suddenly turns and looks at you as if she has heard your thoughts and catches you making that not so subtle annoyed look.
  • you pull a push door or vice versa repeatedly and get frustrated when it doesn’t open and someone behind has to remind you “Umm, you are supposed to push/pull?”
  • you are at the elevator and right before the doors close, someone runs through it and you scream louuud and close your eyes because that person is going to get squashed.Not really.In my defence I had a nightmare of the sort.
  • you are so busy talking to your friend that you enter the mens bathroom but thankfully someone shouts from behind and then proceeds to laugh his head off.
  • you are blushing after an awkward moment and someone goes “Oohhh look you are turning red” (not helping mate) and then you turn even more red.

The first step to laughing at yourself is to make a post of the cringe-worthy moments you have encountered. And so, I invite you to let me know that I am not the only one. Tell me in the comments your funniest moments ever. Or make a post out of it if you have heaps like I do.

  1. Wow, I actually sat with my tea and then you said to put it away. You got me there. :p
    Lol, I’m so sorry about Pakistanis bashing Indians. I’m a Pakistani too, but then I guess we both will agree that Modi at least needs to be bashed. Not India though.
    And wow, these are so relatable,especially the one where you hug someone and dont know how many head shakes to do?
    And the time you’re talking about someone rather loudly and then you realize that they’re quite close to you in full hearing range… lmao :’)

  4. Best post for my monday readings 😀 You made me have many awkward moments in my seat and my boss actually stared at me for laughing! 😀 Well I have experienced all of them except the pakistani aunties, never got a chance to attend any of their event! the first one ,Smiling at Hijabi is my favorite, I was ranting about it on friday to my husband,who always have to lend his helping ear to hear all my rantings :D, I mean first they will stare at you,okay you can check me out what I am wearing n all, but if you meet my eyes atleast If I am smiling, smile back ,not to look away ,it is so offending. Sometimes I am too confused to smile or not, until some nice soul smile at me and gives me hope again to smile at my fellow Hijabi sisters!

  5. Firstly, start studying! Secondly, that’s a lot of awkward moments! And what’s more awkward is that you remember so many! I have awkward moments too but I can barely recall any right now considering I’m still laughing at yours 😉
    Wait. I remember some. So my body size is genetically what you’d call small. But you know how Indians are. They will comment on body size irrespective of how fat, thin, healthy, slim, curvy, bulky or fit you are! So one such moment happened when a lady almost my own size comes up and comments “Oh, you’re so thin!” Out of respect and a massive urge to not lash out at her, I simply smiled with zipped lips and left. But that was so awkward!
    And I love listening to music and sometimes I start tapping to tunes I’m listening to over the headphones. It’s awkward when you notice strangers staring at you in public transport while you’re blissfully lost in some other world :p

    1. I love how my fellow brothers and sisters like Ershad, you, Jade, Paper Girl all are telling me to study. It is so kind and thoughtful and feels like second family.Thanks guys for the love.
      I remember each and every moment as I lay down on bed to sleep. Its like I am laying down and brain is like hold up, remember when you were 15 and fell flat on your nose in public or remember when you laughed so hard you literally fell down and on and on so making this post was real easy. It was like finally giving the exam paper for which I had revised each night.
      Haha I bet. Ooooh and the earphones one. Maaan how did I forget to put in there. I shall put in here. So I used to listen to this song on repeat (not gonna tell coz I don’t want you to judge my musical taste) and then recently I heard it at a cafeteria. Now at home when I am alone I sing out loud. I forgot I was in public so I started singing out loud and everyone looked at me like wooah look at this hijabi jamming full on. And as I opened my eyes after chorus oh dear, digs a grave to bury is all I wanted to do. An old lady commented I sang beautifully which left me even more shame faced.

        And I think the old lady may have been right. Maybe you do sing well! Because old people don’t lie, do they? Except my granny, maybe! She says I sing fine. I beg to differ. I croak. And it is so awkward when you have to explain a song to someone and they just don’t get it with solely the lyrics so you have to sing it to them. I want to disapparate at those moments!!

      2. True that. My fault. Now I can’t even post without someone reminding me to study haha.
        I sure do hope so. I love to sing. Hahaha naah grannies are the most truthful wise species. Then again you might be her favourite grand daughter and she is blinded by partiality and favouritism 😛 I bet you sing great though Adi. You might hear voice differently than someone listening to you. It’s because your voice reaches your ears without it passing through vocal chords. But to the person the voice comes out of your vocal chords. Wait, I am not good at explaining things. It is the reason your voice sounds different when you listen to the record than how you actually speak.
        Hahahah OMG and sometimes I don’t know the lyrics so I make em up and sometimes I sing it with my version and my brothers crack up laughing.

        Also, I appreciate your effort to explain why my voice may be good (though I barely understood anything! My fault not yours.) but well, I have to admit my voice isn't made for singing! But obviously that doesn't deter me from torturing my sister or my close friends by singing! I sing around people I'm comfortable enough to be ridiculed by 😉

  6. Splendid post!
    Literally! I had to open this post in two tabs to be actually be able to read and comment to the help of the summaries. 😉
    So much humor from a girl of your kind doesn’t surprise me a bit!
    I too have lots of awkward moments that I could well compose a whole of a post. But, since you already did one, then let me just comment here.

    “someone says no offense and then proceeds to say the most offensive thing ever. ”
    This is just heart-wrenching. Almost kills.
    And that happens from the person you care about the most. Sad.

    “Soneone reads your post and comments on how much they loved it but doesn’t like it. Hit that star button man/ma’am.Gimme my chocolate”
    Happened to me a lot of times on my facebook posts. 😛

    I would like to mention an awkward moment that just so happened.
    That moment when you are taking to someone and tell them that someone said, “You are beautiful”; and they tend to forget the apostrophes and consider themselves to be called ‘beautiful’. I just loved this moment.

    And here’s on more:
    That moment when you are talking to someone sleeping next to you with lights off. And when you find its over half-an-hour that they had already slept (which only they know when are woken up), and you are like, all this which I had been talking to myself. Really! Being somewhere amidst angry and sad.
    PS- I use to sleep while talking. And they would be so covenant on never speaking to me again, but they still do. And it would have been so good if they did not. 😀

    Said so much. Hope you don’t turn against me. 😉

      And wow, you put the effort to open in two tabs to read and pick your favourite parts. Appreciate that.
      Please do write a post on your embarrassing moments. I hope its as long as mine.

      Yeah it is sad 😦 haha but I take it in a good way. I try not get offended because that’s what they told me : to not take offense.

      Hahahaha the apostrophe. Oh maan. I love that. So embarrassing.
      My cousins were sleeping next to me and one of them was recounting a story and I was listening and going mm hmm coz I was sleepy. I slept midway and next day she was complaining with a pouty face like “Aaliyah appi, you slept when I was telling my story and it was so loong and now I have to tell again. Arrghhh” Sooo cute haha.
      Awww you sleep while talking. Again, my cousins do it too. And its surprising, you talk to them and they reply in their sleep as well.

  10. So imagine a girl who is looking at her screen, her mouth shut with the help of a hand, and still laughing terribly. Gosh. Girls can be this funny, I never knew!
    The rishta picture and ristha search thing, been there.
    And that confusion between left and right, ugh. Lefties are sort of miserable peeps. That’s why I let other people hug me first. :p
    ‘Booger on their nose”.. Hahaha Yikes! I’ve encountered some similar situation once. There was this classmate who wasn’t just shutting her mouth up so I had to listen to not sound rude, when, all of a sudden, I saw a flea on one of her loose hair which was trying to climb her way up. And.. I just could not say there was something on her. And it was.. AWK.
    Moreover. I have this habit of walking backwards. So most of the time I’m just a moment close to bump into someone (males) and my friend yells, “Mahaah! Stop!” and I turn around to find their awkward faces with weird expressions :p
    But really, I’m not an awkward person. Some of my friends are. And the struggle of making them believe that what they did was okay, what they said was not awkward, is REAL.

        My friends are all clean, it was just that one weird classmate. You know, when you’re little, there’s this list of characteristics that you want to see in your friends, (idk if its a normal thing, but my mother taught me this), and when you make friends and get a first impression of them, you go like check-check-no-check-no-check-check. And you’re like, “kayz that’d make a good friend.”.. the entries in that list change from time to time, but it stays there. Always. Point being, in my approval-list, ‘cleanliness’ comes first. Be it thoughts or physical cleanliness. But it always remains on top. 🙂
        I don’t even know why I’m telling you such weird stuff, including my way of kind-of-criticizing-someone. But.. That is how it goes.

  11. I can totally relate. I’ll add two personal ones:

    1. Being a lefty, you always crash into the person you’re hugging because you never know which side to begin the hug with.

    2. This is another version of going to the mens washroom in error. You’re practically blind without your glasses. So you gotta make wudhu, you hand your glasses to your friend to hold outside. Go into the washroom, hijab off and make wudu, and don’t find the friend you came into the washroom with, after exiting the washroom you see your friend coming out the opposite washroom door, and realize that you’d been in the mens washroom the whole time and were super blessed to not have had a single guy in there at the same time. :O

    And a total “OMG that’s so me!!” at the whole getting up to offer your seat/hug an aunty and she totally walks right past you. That happens so much, I have developed anxiety over meeting/greeting aunties.

    a. you don’t get up to meet them and you hear about how rude you are through your mom when you get home.

    b. you get up to greet them as soon as they walk in because you’re so socially awkward and nervous, and since they won’t walk towards you, you walk towards them and hug them just so you can relax at it being over.

    So many more, but this is a accessible to the opposite gender, so I’ll leave it at this 😀

    Take care and enjoy the awkwardness 😉 Xx

    1. OMG I have to add this one.

      You’re assisting students (work as Lab Assisstant at College) and one of the students comes to you and tells you that another student has been crying in the washroom with the door locked because she embarrassed herself during a presentation (international student, not great at English), and you go into the washroom and talk to the student outside the closed stall, urging her to come out and assuring her things will be ok. You do this for about 15 minutes, and walk out with no luck. The friend of the upset student calls her other friend to come help console her and is told that the upset student isn’t in the washroom but chilling with the friend who she just called on the phone. :O

      So all this time you’d been talking to some random dudette in the wahroom, urging her to come out, she must’ve been so annoyed, like “leave me alone and let me get my bowel movements dealt with in peace”.

      That was a hilarious day! :’)

        When you ask a parent or teacher the meaning of an inappropriate word without realising. Duh-duh-duhhhhh.
        Oh, the typical Auntie, ‘Do you remember me [from when you were in nappies]?’ ‘Yeah, yeah, I remember’ ‘What’s my name?’ ‘Erm, Auntie Ji’ Dun, dunnnnnn. Because they actually expect you to remember, ceasing to realise they’re just one of many.

      2. Oh, how about the awkward moment when you’re waiting for a reply and then realised you’re the one that needs to reply. Sound familiar? 🙂 Also, I am the ultimate victim of going red and also the pull/push door one. STORY OF MY BLOODY LIFE!! Also, the awkward moment when even an automatic door doesn’t open for you. Like have I really failed THAT bad at life?!! P.s. Go study!

      3. Hahahahhahahhaha OMG automatic door doesn’t open for you. I have been through that one. Also when you are drying your hands at the hand dryer thingy at public washrooms but it doesn’t blow air and someone steps ahead and it blows air for her. Racism I tell ya!!
        P.S I know I know I just don’t wanna 😦

  12. Oye ladki. Tu padhai chhordke list bana rahi hai? Watch out for the flying slipper. XD

    You know, when I woke up this morning, I thought to myself. I will be thoughtful today. Serious and stuff. And then I read this. Damn you Aaliyah.
    As I was reading this, I could imagine a tiny little cartoon version of a girl with a hijab on a wrong proportioned head walking around and getting into all these awkward scenarios. 😀 (We are on the same team thing had me clutching my sides hahaha)
    You should have named this post something like “Rapidex course on Awkwardness”

      1. Well I have no choice. Otherwise I will have to be friends with girls and be a silent awkward zombie all my life. Because you know if I open my mouth, I’ll say something like, “Hey fatty what’s up?” I’ve been told girls don’t like to be called “fatty.”

      2. Haha sulphurman ho toh banta hi hai. Aakhir sulphur kis kaam ka? 😛

        Haan true that.
        Hahahahaha OMG fatty. Yes, that’s the worst line, if you are throwing one. Even if you aren’t it still is.Skinny girls get offended at your apparent blindness and healthy girls get offended at your blatant honesty. You can’t really win.

    2. I was going to start my comment by telling her the exact same thing! She needs to study 😉 Now I’ll skip reading comments (in case you’ve said everything else I want to say!) and post mine!

  13. With the exception of the Indian/Pakistani experiences…these have all happened to me. Adding to the list, once I was in a store and a cute boy was directing me to customer service. He told me to turn left, I turned right… He had to correct me. I was mortified.
