Everyone Secretly Wishes These 27 Awkward Things Were Socially Acceptable


One of the more confusing things about life as a socially awkward person is... everything. What do I say? What don't I say? What do I do? What don't I do?

It is way too hard to learn how to behave like everybody else, so if I had it my way, we would just expand what we consider socially acceptable. Want to burp in public? Go for it. Want to tell someone you think their kid is ugly? No one one will judge you. Want to dress like Batman? Hell, I admire that. 

Doesn't that sound like a better world to live in? Actually, don't answer that. Conversations scare me. And I'm not alone, either. Just look at how many things Redditors wish they could get away with doing in public, awkwardness be damned.
