We’ve all been the girl who’s kept her cool ‘til she lands
in a way-awkward situation. It’s time to pull your foot outta your mouth, shake
off that clumsy misstep and rock the awk, babe. Here’s how to recover when

Oops! Your forgot
your new bud’s name
Sitch saver: “I’m
so sorry—I’ve met so many people today, I can’t keep their names straight!
What’s yours again?”
Oops! You were
laughing with your ladies one sec, and the next you're flat on your bum on the
Sitch saver: “Did
someone leave a banana peel on the floor or something?” And then pick yourself
up, laugh and pretend it never happened.
Oops! You blurt
out something about totally hating how jocks strut around wearing their
jerseys…and your bud is standing there, wearing her field hockey uni.
Sitch saver: “OMG,
I feel like such an idiot. I mean, I
hate it when it becomes a status symbol, you know? And did I mention I’m coming
to the game to cheer you on?”
Oops! Your crush
catches you staring. Again. In the middle of class.
Sitch saver: “Sorry!

Sitch saver: “Great
minds think alike!” paired with a cool-girl grin.
Oops! You totally
spaced out in math class, right when Teach asked you a Q.
Sitch saver: Shake your head and say, “I'm really sorry, but I'm still stuck on the last question. Do you think we could go over it again before moving on?”
embarrassed you in front of everyone when she dropped you off in the morning.
Sitch saver: “She
always does that!” and roll your eyes.
