In Handy Tips, we find ways to improve your life and make it easier and explain why these tips work. Today we’re going to tell you about safe ways to get rid of annoying people you don’t get along with.
Escaping from a talkative and rude person is not easy. Well, we are such people too. Therefore, we’ve rounded up several ways that are guaranteed to discourage others from distracting you with annoying conversations.
Where: at the bar, on the street, at the stadium.
Who: an absolute unknown.
Pretend that boredom doesn’t exist in your life. Don’t look them in the eye, don’t react to their jokes, nod at the wrong time a couple of times and say “OK” in the most indifferent tone possible.
An opponent who does not receive emotional feedback is likely to go in search of a new victim. If not, look in the direction of a distant table, stand up firmly, raise your hand with a smile and run to your “best friend”. In fact, you can simply ask for a light or a lie: “It seemed to me that we studied together.”
Where: by plane, by train.
Who: Still an absolute stranger that you will have to deal with in the next few hours.
Prove right away that you’re not in the mood for a conversation. Take out a book, a tablet, ask loudly for earplugs and put them in the mouth of the talkative companion. Pretend you don’t understand the interlocutor. Smile them unnecessarily and get on with your business. Take a Spanish magazine out of your bag.
Where: in the office.
Who: colleagues, managers.
If you are distracted by carefree colleagues, nervously state that you have forgotten about an important meeting with your superiors and that is why you are in a hurry. Tell the boss you promised to help a co-worker.
Where: at home.
Who: Close relatives, your partner, children.
You fall ill suddenly. An acute migraine attack or abdominal pain is right. If you need to finish a phone conversation, oddly enough, say directly that you are busy now and you will call back. But spice it up with a light romantic phrase: “You know, I dreamed of you today! I’ll tell you a little later, because my cat cut the gas pipe.”
