A survey from PR Newswire by CouponCabin.com asked people what they thought was the most awkward money-related moment.      

Surprisingly, only 17% of people said that splitting the dinner check among a large group of people was awkward.  Here are the five things that finished ahead of it:   

1.)  Having your credit card declined:  40% said it was awkward.  (--People could pick more than one thing, so the percentages add up to more than 100%.)  

2.)  Being asked to donate to charity by friends, relatives, or coworkers:  34%.

3.)  Saying no to a panhandler who asks for money:  30%.

4.)  Comparing salaries with coworkers:  30%.

5.)  Chipping in for a group gift with coworkers:  25%.
