Awkward situations are the bane of my existence. They're horrible, uncomfortable and just plain unnecessary. Needless to say, we Beirutis have a few awkward situations unique to our territory, and you've probably witnessed one of these firsthand.

1. Getting stuck in the elevator with random people because the electricity cut.

“So, what floor do you live on? Yeah, the weather is pretty nice.”

2. Confusing 100,000 LL with 1,000 LL.

Especially late at night. Not fun. So not fun.

3. Someone plays ‘3antar’ by Myriam Klink while you’re in the vicinity of your parents.

"What you pudding! May your short skirt/shorts/dress kill me!

(LOK NSHALLAAAA YO2OBRAK ---- I HOPE IT DOES.)

9. Being ripped off by the guy that fixes cracked phone screens.

What do you mean $70? You fixed it last time for 50 bucks. What do you think I am, some sort of idiot!

10. Walking by salons near your house that you don’t go to anymore.

Start plotting an escape plan. Maybe call Superman for help. Ask him to bring Batman, too.

13. The staff of Roadsters singing you "Happy Birthday" because your friends think it’s funny.

No I’m not at Skybar. No way, me?! Nooo.”

Should I go for one, two or three kisses? Or none at all? A handshake maybe? Or just an awkward wave. I'M SO CONFUSED.
