That Awkward Moment When...


The guy you've been avoiding pulls up alongside you while you're checking yourself out at a stoplight.  Your window's down, his window's down.  There is no escaping him.  So what do you do?  Here a few things you can try.  I took some liberties here ;-)

  1. Turn up the music and make exaggerated hand gestures like you're explaining why the two of you haven't connected. 
  2. Squint your eyes as though you're trying to place him... then book it as soon as the light turns green.
  3. Lean down in your seat avoiding all eye contact...then book it as soon as the light turns green. 
  4. Pretend that you're having a heated discussion on your cell phone.
  5. Act like you're in a rush and did not notice the stoplight stalker. 

There's no guarantee that these methods will actually work.  However, it will make for a great story over drinks with your friends!
