Awkward situations happen to all of us. If you don’t have social anxiety, you can probably just laugh off embarrassment and move on with your life. If you do have social anxiety, those moments will haunt you for roughly the rest of your life.

We combed Reddit for some of the most subtly-brutal social situations out there. They’re definitely not for the faint of heart and, yes, one involves public bathrooms. Of course, these are just for fun as we can’t independently authenticate them.

“At pretty much any large group gathering I’m forced to attend (the worst are for work)… everyone standing in groups of two-five, chatting away. I look around quickly for someone who’s either super chatty and will fill up the conversation or someone I can actually think of something to say to. Walk up to the group. Realize at the last minute I have no angle to properly insert myself into the group. End up standing slightly behind someone who can’t see me, who continues chatting away.

“Other person/people try to focus on the conversation but clearly see me loitering creepily. Five-30 seconds pass. Anxiety rises, and I bail to the next group. /repeat until I finally get too flustered and make a break to the bathroom to regroup. EVERY F—— TIME.” – Redditor NomiTheMad

“Pray they weren’t asking a question.”

“Not being able to hear what someone is saying, so you say ‘what?’ Then they say it again but you STILL can’t hear them so you just laugh and say ‘yeah’ and pray they weren’t asking a question.” — Redditor raisethecurtain

“You both are waiting for the other one to leave.”

“Having to poop with people in the stalls next to you … And knowing you both are waiting for the other one to leave so you can poop in peace. — Redditor numberfourbackinshow
