899: When someone waves at you, but doesn’t

Go to fullsize image

So you’re sitting in the cafeteria area of the mall and you’re waiting for your friend to meet you at the mall.  You just ordered a slammin’ burger at the BK Lounge and you are just chompin away when you see someone wavin’ at you at the mall.  It looks like your friend and you put down your sandwich and smile and wave back. Then you see the person give you an uncertain smile only to turn back and look that the wave wasn’t for you it was for someone behind you.  Embarrassing…

Other bad waves of excitement:

* The “You, Me, Are you sure?!” wave: you’re walking at the mall and someone you see waves at you from a floor above you stop and look around and then you point at yourself confused and then the person stalls shakes their head yes and then you oddly wave back to get either a hello or just a odd smile back with them waving back.  There went that cute date goodbye.

* The “Waiter I’m not calling you here!” wave:  The wave where you see your friend come by as you’ve saved them a seat and you motion them over and the waiter comes over asking if you need something…no no I don’t…

* The “I’m NOT wavin’ at you!!” wave: You’re exiting the theater and through the cattle call rush out of the theater after the credits are rolling your friend stops and you wave them back to you and as they step to the side someone looks back and confusingly waves to you.  Then you just wave them to the side and they continue to look confuse as you finally walk to your friend then glare at the person who tried waving at you.

* The “Hi neighbor.” wave: The elderly person that gives you the smug smile and waves at you from the side of the road as you drive by lost looking for your friend’s house

* The “Argh forget it” wave: You’re just tired of trying to explain your point, just forget it and wave it on by to totally dismiss your point!

* The “Oops I didn’t mean to cut you off” wave: Yeah thanks for driving closely with your cheesy smile and minutes from a near fatal accident.

* The “I meant goodbye not come here and talk to me for 10 minutes…I’m in a rush” wave: Yeah, I meant to discreetly say hi, not motion you over for lunchtime chatter.

Just awful altogether.

905: That friend that always has to get in your photos

Say cheese!

Never mind why we even say that word, but whenever you look back at your photos in your photo album, everyone has that one friend that always has to find some way to get in your photo – no matter if it’s a half body shot, a cropped head, or just makes a pose that messes up the coolness of your photo.

Must they really be in all of your photos, thanks for cropped features but must they always steal the sunshine?  I guess that’s what friends are for…now how awfully intrusive is that?!

918: When the social network IM stalls your other windows

Go to fullsize image

For avid users of social sites you should be fully aware that there is a small task bar in the lower right hand screen to share with you that your friends are online.  For those who are lazy and can’t pick up the phone and call this tends to be the quicker option than talking face to face.

As we click over to continue to read the news or write an elaborate email, maybe even write this post a “pop” noise alerts us a new message from “so & so” has arrived.  Sometimes stalling your writing or even switching windows altogether so you have to see the red [2] box and click on it to read.

What makes the messaging even better is when you write simultaneously as the other person and their incoming message stalls your message and you have to click of the IM box, minimize it, then reopen it to type all over again what you just wrote to send a simple item such as, “I’m good, how are you?”

Now how awfully stall…

ing is that?!

927. Getting a wrong call

Go to fullsize imageIt’s the middle of the day on a Saturday afternoon and you’re just whittling away the day watching old DVD’s and relaxing.  Shortly the phone goes off and rings, you look at the number on the screen and vaguely recognize it.  You answer…

“Hello is James there? He owes me $20!”

“No this isn’t James?”

“Are you sure?”

(pauses) “Yes I’m quite sure there is no James here”

“Okay I’m sorry wrong number.”

As you look at the phone for few minutes weirded out.  At least I don’t owe   any money! Now how awful is that?

928. When you get confused for a store employee

So as you make your way through the aisles minding your own business you make your selections and start loading your hand basket/cart. As you reach for the cans of corn which are inconveniently placed on the lower shelf apparently three other cans drop off.  So as you bend down to put up the cans and place them on the shelf you see a pair of feet on your peripheral and you hear the words “Excuse me!

Go to fullsize imageAs you turn and look up and place the cans back on the shelf to then stand back up, the lady continues with, “I’m looking for dish detergent, can you tell me where that is?”  As you stand there aloof for a brief 2 seconds you map out the store in your head.  So then you reply, “Sorry I don’t work here but try aisle 12.”  Then you see the look of confusion and regret on the lady’s face as she apologizes and walks away thanking you.

Now how awful is that?!

936. Having a 100% sarcastic conversation with someone who thinks youre serious

Most people have came across meeting or even have one of their friends that go to the extent of sarcasm for a great laugh and then they either are pulling a fast one on you and you’re just amazed by all the things that they have said.  You just are in total awe by the things that they have done with their day…

“You went to the Bahamas yesterday?!”

“Reallly?!  How was it?!”

“Oh it was great I shot a jackelope and then we went and snorkled in the ocean and I bought you a necklace that I saw at one of the vendor’s cart.  He was very nice he even gave me a bottle of his finest liquor but the airport security didn’t let me take the bottle.  Oh here’s the necklace!” (hands you the jewelry)

“Oh wow, how nice!  Thank you it’s beautiful!”Go to fullsize image

“Sure no problem at all!  You should have come it was a pretty quick flight!  Put it on I want to see how it looks on you!”

(Tries it on) “What do you think!?”

“Yeah, it looks great totally matches your eyes!”

Some off-the-wall commentary and out of sorts scenario would just be quite an eyebrow raiser to some but in this moment the surprise of the gift (more than likely bought at a local Dollar General) just makes it only too good to be true.  In the meantime your other friend standing there is looking off at your friend like what a total loser.

You really believe that?!  Now how amazing awful is that?!

953. When you walk around with a hanging boogey and no one says anything

Go to fullsize image

So you’re meeting with a client and throughout the meeting you can’t help but notice that the person you are talking to is just staring at your face not in interest but in confusion and uncertainty.  You just begin to question yourself what is the matter wondering if there is something wrong or if you are just making the situation worse than necessary by constantly focusing on the person’s facial expressions.

Looking beyond the person’s response you continue your meeting and close up and wrap back things up towards the office.  As you check in with your

receptionist they slightly swipe a finger at their nose – “You have a little something on your nose there.”  As you go to wash up in the restroom you realize you have a rather large friend hanging on to dear life.  How great!  There goes that second business lunch!

Now how awful is that?!
