I know it's stupid but I feel this way. A friend of mine invited me to go to this hotel where his family was to hang out a bit. It was a nice place, very classy and full of "jet set" type people. I immediately felt so awkard and out of place I just had to leave and just walked around outside.

How many of you feel this way?
#3
No.

But, then again, my uncle is the CFO of Northwest Airlines, lives in a mansion and such, and we visit him once a year, so I'm used to it.

And please, don't say "bitch be lyin", because I'm not.

Awkward as in I want to punch myself in the face as soon as I enter? Then yes, yes I do. Something about me sticks out like a sore thumb at these places and I do my best to avoid them completely.

no cos i know the people in classy places are posers my village is pretty upmarket, the people i get in the pub i work at are loaded and they dress regular, don't brag and they wouldn't bother staying in a really pmarket hotel, less to spen having fun, places that are "classy" just make me smile (we're not loaded by the way, we just live there)

Not at all.

Somebody jumping in front of me and flapping their schlong around would make me feel awkward.

I can tolerate it but really dislike dressing up and being fancy. I would rather sit around in my bedroom eating pizza and watching T.V. than going out to a fancy restaurant wearing a suit and all that. It seems extremely wasteful and unnecessary to devote so much time towards appearance, fashion, overly polite customs, etc.

I do only if I'm not familiar with the people there. If it's with at least 2-4 friends then I don't care at all.

Yeah, if I had a few more people I knew there I would probably enjoy myself.

Yeah, I usualy feel quite akward in places like that, the best way to combat it is to stare back at anyone staring at you, its disconcerting as hell for them, amusing and suprisingly satisfying for you.

Yeah, I know what you mean. My girlfriend's parents are pretty "fancy" so I feel that alot, especially when they invite me to parties or something. Every shirt I own is a band shirt and I'm usually blasting Iron Maiden, so I guess it's kinda my fault.

My dad is CFO of a pretty big company and I have to go to business dinners with him sometimes. I hate it. It's so awkward for me because I don't really fit in with the snobby rich kids there. The pointless small talk is the worst part. I'd rather be at my house eating a pizza as well.

It's the opposite for me. I feel really awkward when I'm surrounded by people with band t-shirts and heavy headbangers.

I love music and I often listen to trash metal, but come on, I feel it's a little bit exaggerated to act like a rude metalhead EVERY single day. Especially when you are one of those music elitist who think that everyone wearing a lacoste t shirt sucks and that you are on top of the world for wearing an old mastodon t shirt. It's an oxymoron; you are critizising other people's clothing for critizising yours.

So, yeah, I find that kind of thoughts to be pretty stupid. It's my own problem if I wear those Abercrombie shirts you hate, after all, I'm the one who buys them with my very own money.

Dude, all the time. Even when I go to a fancy restaurant. Cause I'm wearing a band shirt, jeans, and have chuck taylors on. So its like, "Oh, that's what you meant by wear a nice shirt."

I'm used to being broke and living in standard/substandard conditions. I hate it when people buy me food and I feel incredibly akward at rich people's places. That said, I rarely go such places, if ever.

Nope, but I'm fairly socially unaware at most times. If anything, I'd feel contempt.
