There's awkward, and then there's modern awkward. What's the difference? Well, not even ten years ago, you didn't feel uneasy without your phone in public place, you didn't feel schadenfreude of someone's text messages split by each word, and you definitely didn't feel uncomfortable going out without any makeup on.

Mariya, also known as Pinks&Roses in the online comics society, perfectly illustrates these everyday awkward situations in her little black, white and pink girly sketches. She likes to keep her comic strips authentic and draws them mainly by hand, only adding the pink tones in Photoshop.

Mariya often illustrates her own problems in these funny comic strips, but sometimes she uses other people's misfortunes too. The purpose of her drawings, as she says, is "to spread a more lighthearted perspective on one's own daily life." And in our opinion, these funny comics indeed succeed at that.

Now, scroll along for a dose of awkwardly funny cartoons below!

As a 40 year old woman, it concerns me that callers still ask if my Mom or Dad can come to the phone. I'm like, "yeah, sure, Credit Union, I'll just facetime them in Florida for ya."

OMG, so true! Or even worse - I usually don't wear makeup (my skin is super sensitive) and I went for a job interview. The feedback I got was "your qualifications more than justify hiring you for this position, however, our office expects our employees to maintain a certain level of professionalism and preparedness in their appearance." I was in a business suit and my hair was flawless - the only difference between me and the other women in the office was that I wasn't wearing makeup. Sigh.

I used to get something like Hot Pockets while grocery shopping, and would throw them into the microwave as soon as I got home, that way they wouldn't be the temperature of the sun once I was done unloading the car and putting everything away
