So I'm reading "The Four Levels of Social Entrapment" on Allie Brosh's fantastic blog, Hyperbole and a Half.

And I'm wondering: why do we try so valiantly to get out of awkward social situations? You bump into someone you don't want to talk to, so you pretend to be REALLY INTERESTED in something--your hand, the sky, an invisible spot on the wall, etc. Next time you're in such a jam, just run away. Seriously, just turn the other way and run like hell. Awkwardness evaded, and probably forever. You think that person is going to maintain a friendship? No way.
