I'll go first: I went to shake hands with a male friend who is younger than me. He twisted his hand sideways to perform some sort of street greeting. I ended up shaking his thumb and we were both like "Ugh."

My wife asked where something was on the menu (she does this pretty much every time). I reached across the table and turned her page for her. This time, the corner of the menu grazed her, raking across the inside of her open mouth. She reacted as though a vagabond had just thrown half a warm beer into her face. I seriously thought she was going to have to leave.

A diminutive female friend went to give me a hug and kiss on the cheek hello, and I accidentally planted a kiss right on her ear canal.

Yeah, this might get redundant with Quirks, I'm thinking. Not all quirks are awkward, though. Skittle eating is a private matter. This thread is for things you do or have done that made people think "What is the MATTER with this person?"

I just shed a bunch of shreds of paper out of my sleeve onto the floor of a coworkers office. We have no idea where the paper came from or how I became the Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz.

Running and riding everywhere ...
At a steakhouse last week with the son and a friend. I ordered a margarita...it went like this:

Waitress: would you like it frozen or on the rocks?
Jen: frozen
Waitress: would you like lime or flavored?
Jen: Yes!
Waitress: lime or flavored?
Jen: Uh huh
>>insert waitress, son and friend looking at me like "WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH YOU?<<
Waitress: I'm sorry, you're confusing me. Which do you want?
Jen: I'm sorry? What?
Friend: do you want a lime margarita or a flavored margarita?
Jen: (insanely embarrassed and blushing) Oh my goodness I am so sorry I thought you were saying "lime flavored"...lime please.
>>insert waitress walking away shaking her head<<

EXACTLY! Why didn't she say "would you like lime, peach, or mango?"

I was shopping with my son and walked into the huge plate glass window at the exit, which I thought was the exit, but it was apparently not. crazy laugh

Last weekend, A friend of my wife's, who we haven't seen in a long time, and who is much shorter than me, wanted to greet me with a hug. As she came in, I stepped on her foot, and my shoulder bone caught her on the bridge of her nose. There was sort of an awkward silence. Good times!

the real question is why didn't you just say "bring them all!"

This wasn't recent, but when my wife and I got together with some college friends a few years out of school. They had just had their second child and so we were visiting them.

We were all sitting around talking having a good time and some how the one said to my wife and I, "You are just a couple happy DINKs".

Having not heard the term I asked, what does that stand for, and the wife said, "Double Income No Kids".

So, me in my ability to think quick said, "Well you are Double Income Children Keepers, that makes you a couple DI_ _ s". There was a moment of silence, then realizing what I had said, we all bust out laughing.

To this day, it comes up everytime we get together.

I promise it was not me, but here is the conversation from a co-worker the other day:
Loan Officer: I hate to be a thorn in your side on this issue.
Co-worker: Compared to all the thorns I deal with you're just a little pri_k.

She had no idea what she said until everyone stared at her. then the loan officer started laughing and everyone cracked up.

Last Friday, I met some friends for happy hour after work. I was wearing my chrome casette tape belt buckle, which is rather shiny. I also failed to pull up my zipper. So I brought attention to the fact my fly was down. Party fail. Or win. Depending on who noticed.

The dryer softener sheet fell out of my cloths onto the floor in the office. At least it looked like the type we use at our house. I did not see it fall off my cloths but I am guessing it did.

No, I don't do fake. I do have a flask buckle, a gun lighter buckle, one that conceals a pocket knife, one that spins and has Magic 8 Ball sayings on it, a couple of bottle opener buckles...
