I have a lot of problems. A lot of them is caused because I lack any sort of skills in being social. Awkward silences, doing the right face expression, close talkers, end unwanted conversations or even keep a wanted conversation going. It’s an everyday combat.
Making a scene
This is my first priority to avoid in public.
Like when you are eating something spicy or too hot. Your instinct tells you to scream after help and water while you cough so much people think you are actually dying.
You suppress that instinct.
Instead you sit there, eyes tearing up, breathing starting to get challenging, nose starting to drip.
But you keep that poker face spot on.
Being overly polite
When someone accidentally walks into you or opens a door in your face and that awkward and overly polite conversation starts about you being fine about it.
Not hearing what the person is saying
When you can’t hear what someone is saying. After asking the person to repeat oneself a maximum of two times and still being clueless of what the guy is telling you.
Just smile and laugh.
You can always answer yes or no. There is a 50/50 chance. You will either be accepted or looked weird at for all eternity.
