Here Are 12 Uncomfortable Situations — What Would You Do In Them?

Sometimes you really have to make a choice of whether to speak up or not.

Below are 12 pretty awkward situations we have all found ourselves in at some point or another. Tell us if you would say something in them:

  1. 1. Scenario: You're shopping at your favorite store and you see a shirt you like and grab the last one in your size. However, you put it down on a rack for a few minutes while you look elsewhere, another shopper comes around and accidentally grabs the shirt.

    I don't say anything since it was my fault for putting it down.
  1. 2. Scenario: The cashier at the supermarket isn't paying attention and rings you up incorrectly for some pricey olive oil (saving you 10 bucks off it).

    Nope, I just saved $10! And they should've been playing closer attention.
  1. 3. Scenario: The kid sitting behind you on your flight starts kicking your chair. However, there are only 20 more minutes left before you land.

    Yes, that kid needs to stop. I am talking to their parents.

    Nah, it's only 20 more minutes, and I can deal with it.
  1. 4. Scenario: You and your friends ordered Uber Eats. When you guys open the bags, you realize you got both your order and someone else's, too. The other order is definitely stuff you guys would eat as well.

    Nope. Let Uber Eats, that customer, and the restaurant deal with it.
  1. 5. Scenario: You get a notice that you need to change your Netflix log-in. Your ex (who you're still friendly-ish with) is mooching off your account, and you really haven't spoken in months.

    LOL, I am not saying a word. I am sure someone else will eventually say something.

    Not. Saying. A. Thing.
  1. 8. Scenario: You're on a first date at the movies and keep getting distracted by the kid in front of you playing on their parent's phone. The movie is gripping drama and probably the reason why the kid would rather be playing with the phone.

    Yes. While it's not the kid's fault, the parents should also know that what they're doing is distracting.

    Nope, I'm trying to make a good impression and not trying to cause a scene or complain.
  1. 9. Scenario: You go to a fancy dinner party to the home of a couple who you recently befriended and are trying to impress. However, the main course is something that you do NOT like to eat.

    Yes, I'd be polite and just let them know I don't like that particular dish. Or I'd lie and say I am allergic to it.
  2.  
    vote votes
    No, I'd serve myself a small portion and just nibble on it. And fill myself up with the sides.
  1. 10. Scenario: Your not-at-all-friendly Uber driver is blasting their music at a SUPER-high volume (but on the plus side, you're not going too far).

    Yes. I'll politely ask them to turn it down.

    Nope. I'll just deal with it and then give them a low rating afterwards.
  1. 11. Scenario: Your ex sends you a risqué selfie and text that was clearly meant for their current S.O. They haven't realized they sent it, and it's been several hours.

    Yes. I am going to joke it off and make sure they realize I know it was a mistake and to be careful next time.

    Nope, and hopefully they won't text me again and realize they sent that.
  1. 12. And last scenario: You go snooping through your friend's medicine cabinet after using their bathroom. You notice that they have a very expensive beauty product that went missing from your home (around the last time they visited) now sitting in theirs.

    Um, yes. I am going to find a way to bring it up.

    No, I think I'll wait to see if anything of mine ever goes missing again before I go accusing them of it. Also, I shouldn't have been snooping either.
