Wow, that’s a mouthful for a title. Whether we’re trying to end a conversation, or not start one at all, or if we’re in an uncomfortable situation, we try to get ourselves out of it. Sure, sneaking away is simple, telling the other person (or people) to look the other way and then skedaddle sounds simple enough, but what if you don’t want to be rude!? Just a few words and an automatic, “well this person doesn’t want to talk to me anymore” seems to come across many people’s radar. Small talk was never in my arsenal of skills, but hey I’m improving (at least I’m telling myself I am). Anyways, here are 10 things I say when I don’t know what to say:
- Oh, Okay
- I Know (sometimes followed by a cringe worthy chuckle)
- Of Course
What are some things you say when you’re in a pickle and have nothing left to say but say itself?
