The 7 Most Awkward Moments in Classic Literature, Ranked

ITV

#3: Lockwood is unable to take ONE SINGLE HINT

You know that awkward moment when you see a man with a woman and assume she’s his wife, but actually she’s his daughter-in-law? And also his real wife is dead? Man, you really put your foot in your mouth this time. Lockwood knows that feel. 

You know when you’re hanging out with your landlord, and you can tell he wants you to leave, but instead you invite yourself over to stay the night because it’s snowing? Lockwood’s got your back there, too.

Basically, Lockwood is social awkwardness personified. He never knows when he’s not wanted, which makes the first few chapters of Wuthering Heights absolutely agonizing.
