    Oh, yes, I'll fit right in.

    Where else have you been to and why aren't you living in France? (If I may ask)

    I was brought to England as a kid when my parents emmigrated for a job my dad was offered and since then have never been able to afford to move back. But I do go there regularly to stay with relatives and just 'be there', sorta thing.

    I've been to St Petersburg (Russia) and loved it there. Also Kitwe in Zambia and liked it there, too. Didn't like Germany quite so much... love Italy and Spain and some parts of Ireland.

    Why do you ask?

    Sounds like a cafe full of me's. But I wouldn't like that kind of atmosphere day in and day out--admittedly, it would get depressing.

    I admire travellers! I want to see the whole world.

    As for not being able to afford going home- that's horrendous!

    I!!!!

    edit - actually it's not quite that simple. my daughters have now grown up in England and especially the eldest is very attached to her friends and life here. Also, though my youngest takes to languages easily and speaks French almost as well as I do, the eldest just somehow hasn't clicked with it at all and breaks out in hives whenever we go there and I try to get her to order her own drink in a cafe... it'd be quite cruel to take her there to live at this crucial point in her life... so I'm stuck here!

The worst is when someone plonks themself down right across from you so that it is impossible to look up without looking into their face, OH, THE TORTURE OF IT ALL! I want to take my plate and run for the hills, but I don't. Instead I keep my head down and chew for dear life. By now I'm so nervous and aware of everyone at the table that I don't even taste the food and am entertaining the most hostile thoughts towards the poor human beings who are innocently eating their food.
    I seem calm but it looks very much like this inside::steam:
    I hate this too. My university is huge so there are always thousands of people around and I don't know any of them -- and the cafeteria is always crowded! So now on my lunch break I park in a somewhat secluded place (the best I can find in a crowded suburb anyway) and eat in my car. It's nice -- have some quiet time alone to eat, catch up on some work -- until another person drives by and looks at me like I'm a freak for hanging out in my car.

    *sigh* I can't win.

    It also sucks when I'm with my friends (who are all in relationships) and they all spend 99.9% of their time focusing on their significant other while I sit there staring at the floor, trying to think of a good excuse to go home early. I can't help but think If you're going to ignore me, why did you want to hang out? I'm surrendering some of my rare and precious alone time because you wanted to see me, but instead I'm stuck here watching everyone make googly eyes at each other. I hate that.

    So far, in response to the OP, going to a store, especially a bookstore, where I want to be alone and chill with the books, and accidentally be dressed like an employee...

    Terrible.

    Oh man. The worst ever? You asked for it. I dated an extrovert ...

    I was dating this girl who lived in one of those tall apartment buildings in New York. She had a thing for making out or having sex in somewhat public places. In her building, we used to go make out in the very top of the building's stairwell. That was actually a pretty hidden "public place" as public places go. One time, someone heard us and stuck his head around the corner to take a peek. He sorta grinned and left. Not really very awkward, from my point of view.

    Then, she got it in her head to try having sex in the elevator late at night. I thought this was a very bad idea. But, I wasn't really thinking with my brain.

    So, there we are in the elevator. She leaned against the wall, and I kneeled on the floor and went down on her. Then, she leaned me against the wall, and returned the favor. She pushed me down on the dirty floor of the elevator, and was straddling me when the elevator started moving.

    She jumped off me, and we both got dressed with amazing speed. However, the elevator must have reeked of sex. Also, I was only wearing pajamas and I was sporting a massive hard-on.

    The doors opened. A middle-aged woman who was dressed like she was going to work got in. My girlfriend and I stood at one end of the elevator, the middle-aged woman at the other. Time passed very, very, very slowly. I was utterly horrified by the experience. It went on for almost a minute.

    Ding.

    She walked out without saying a word. The second the doors closed, my girlfriend passionately tore off my pants, threw me to the floor and rode me hard and fast like getting caught was the hottest thing ever. I helped go through the motions, still feeling pretty traumatized.

    Hmm ... thinking if this was the MOST awkward situation I've ever been in, I'm not totally sure but this sort of situation would be my least favorite.
