"So then I told Cheryl, 'That definitely wasn't a squirrel,' and she was like-- Oh. Sorry, sir. I thought you were someone else."

6. Thinking your boo is right next to you but accidentally holding hands with a stranger.

True story: When I was 8 or so, I held a strange man's hand because I thought he was my dad, and he didn't let go and I still haven't fully recovered.

9. Staring at a stranger while trying to figure out if it's someone you know.

Is that Cheryl? She looks like Cheryl. Did Cheryl always have blue eyes? And a beard? Oh, wait, that's a dude. It's totally an old man. That's not Cheryl.

...But it MIGHT be?

12. Seeing a friend of a friend tagged in a Facebook photo, and spending way too much time going through that person's albums.

There's no reason you need to see this person's family trip to Disneyland, and yet here you are.

13. Hovering outside a circle of people talking, not sure how to enter the conversation.

Maybe you'll just stand here forever. Maybe this is where you'll stand the rest of your life.

19. Peeking into people's windows when you see them lit up at night.

Like, from the street. Peeking from the bushes would be something beyond creepy (illegal).

23. Accidentally revealing that you already know a lot about someone because you've googled them.

"So, yeah, and then I left Texas and went to Rutgers."

"I know. *sudden panic* I mean..."

24. Clicking on a link to a story you know you're going to regret.

I don't know why you did that, either, but the person who just walked behind you now thinks (knows?) you're really weird.
