WNPR Voicemail Project: This Is So Awwkweerrrd

Jan 3, 2018

Most of us have stories of painfully awkward moments that linger with us long after the initial discomfort is gone. 

But, how do we know when we've witnessed or done something awkward? Is it when we simply don't know what to say or do in a situation that falls outside our unspoken code of what's socially acceptable?

Is it awkward to break up with someone? Is it awkward to see someone that you ghosted? Is it awkward to make small talk with strangers? Is it awkward to say no once you've said yes?

On Wednesday, January 10, the Colin McEnroe Show, will talk about awkwardness, including what it is and why we feel it. Call us at our voicemail number and share one of your awkward moments with us: 860-580-9677.

No one will pick up, so you don't need to worry about talking with anyone else. It's just you and the phone. If you make a mistake, just start over or hang up and call again.

Please try and limit your message to three minutes.
