Mensagem:  I know "awkward" has several meanings, but can I say that someone who breaks or drops things easily (for example, a waiter/bus boy who buses a table and then drops some dishes, or someone who lets a vase fall and while picking it up, hits a cup of coffee etc) is awkward? Or is there another adjective to suit this?

Thanks.

P.S. In short, can "awkward" mean "desastrado" ?
