Jenny Lawson,a New York Times Best Selling author started an epic Twitter conversation this weekend that resulted in one of the most hilarious, cringeworthy Twitter conversations ever.
From awkward conversations with strangers to embarrassing family moments, this series of tweets has it all.
Warning: Might not want to read this in a public place unless you’re prepared for complete strangers to see you laugh hysterically, or do that and then add your story to the list.
Here is the tweet that got it all started:
Airport cashier: "Have a safe flight." Me: "You too!" I CAN NEVER COME HERE AGAIN.

Then the entire Twitterverse erupted with their own awkward moments and it’s pure comedy gold.
