Some people seem to glide through life with little to no effort. Some people never slip on the proverbial (or literal) banana peel of life. Things seem to work out for them. But I am not one of those people– and I am willing to bet that you are not one of those people either.
Like you and me, the people highlighted in this gallery have also experienced some awkward moments. These aren't moments from which one recovers quickly. These are the awkward stories that leave you mortified at the time and only become funny years down the line when you start to tell them at holiday parties.
These awkward stories will make you cringe, and they'll make you gasp! They will make you laugh, and they will make you thank whatever higher being there is out there that you are not that person. That is how awkward and horrifying these stories are.
These stories will make you say:You might want to cover yourself with a blanket before you start reading this list because you will cringe. Hard.

Drumstick accidentNext time a famous musician does that super cool move where they throw their drumstick into the crowd, think of the poor, unlucky audience member who got smacked in the face with it.
