10 Foolproof Ways To Get Out Of An Awkward Situation
So check out some various ways to get out of that dreaded, unexpected and awkward situation.
Moonwalk your way out of there
That’s right. When things go south, just let your feet take over and moonwalk the hell out of there. Moonwalk so good the king of pop himself would give you a round of applause. Add in a “hee hee!” from a distance for effect.
Do the “Hey, what’s that?” and then run off routine
An oldie, but a classic that still works. Just point at anything and say, “Hey, what’s that?” When the person or people turn their head in that direction, run out of the room as fast you can. They won’t know what hit them.
No one wants to bother a person that’s asleep. So nod off and shut your eyes, regardless if you’re sitting or standing. After some time open your eyes again, and if done correctly the room should be empty.
Pretend to take a call from your doctor
Loudly saying, “Sorry guys, I have to take this,” even if your phone didn’t ring or buzz at all, is the first step in this ploy. Put the phone to your ear and mouth, “It’s my doctor,” before scurrying out of the room. Perfect getaway.
Clear your throat and get some water
Clear your throat like you never have before — enough for others to notice you are in dire need of some H2O. Continue to clear your throat as you exit the room. Simple, effective and foolproof.
Inform them you’re currently taking part in a marathon and you can’t stay and talk
When the awkwardness kicks in, begin jogging in place while looking at your watch-less wrist. Yell, “Sorry, I’m in the middle of a marathon,” and run off. This also counts as your exercise for the week.
“Excuse me, do you have a moment to talk about our lord and savior?”
It’s proven that people quickly disperse upon hearing these words. So saying this once you feel you’re in an awkward situation will be enough to instantly ease it. People don’t want to be anyone near someone who says this, so you know it will always work.
Yell “Taxi!” to nothing in particular
You’re someone who is always on the move, so yelling out “Taxi!” out of nowhere will inform people of that. Just yell that out and be on your way even if you’re indoors.
You have a flight to catch
Sure, you probably hadn’t mentioned flying out anytime soon, but that doesn’t matter. No one wants to get in the way of someone who is trying to catch a flight, so use that to your advantage. And yeah, you don’t have any bags packed, but that’s irrelevant. All you need is yourself and your quick exit.
Just roll away
Yep, it’s that simple. Just roll your body out of that situation and don’t look back.
