Are you an awkward university student? See if you match up to some of the examples to find out if you fit the profile.
1YOU HAVE AWKWARD HANDS
You go to fist bump when they extend an open hand which can lead to a momentary bit of awkwardness or end up looking something like this calamity…
2YOU’RE ALWAYS DOOMED TO FAIL SIMPLE GREETINGS
You ask “how are you” at the exact same time as the other person, creating a very awkward few moments in which you both say something or you speak over each other again.
3YOU HAVE TOO MANY “DRUNK FRIENDS”
You have many awkward encounters when walking to and from uni with people you have only met very briefly a few times (mainly when drunk at house parties or in club smoking areas), where you’re not sure whether you should say hello or not. This usually ends up in awkward eye contact and a quick nod of the head to each other while feigning a smile.
4YOU’RE A TERRIBLE PERSON
You never remember anyone’s name. You usually hide this by calling them mate until you hear somebody else say their name.
5YOU JUST CAN’T HELP BUT BE AWKWARD WHEREVER YOU ARE
You answer a lecturer’s question at the same time as another student, creating a series of events which unfolds like this; “You answ-” “No, it’s o-” “Uh, I’ll…” “Ok, wait, me? Or…” *Awkward laugh*
