On "I pose a simple question" it came up for the creation of this forum, so I wanted to create a forum for how to escape or exit a social situation in an emergency (being overwhelmed by noise and stupidity) or just to run away.

I'd be delighted if someone can come up with how one can escape from dinner parties – that is actually a skill I'd like to learn.

Tell them you have a tummy ache and then when they inquire about it say its your knee. That way there will be so much confusion that they won't want you there. (I learned that from eminem, btw.)

I take it escaping means actually escaping, not pre-event avoidance.

Set your smart phone alarm clock with a phone-like alarm sound. Program a time during the dinner party, let it go off, pretend your answering your phone, and then just announce something has come up and you have to go. If people are nibby, look like you're going to cry, to avoid answering their questions about what came up.

The truth is, though, I used to be so good at blending into the background that I could leave whenever and no one would notice I was gone, just as they didn't notice I was actually there. :-)

Sometimes we overthink. Do you really need to do any more than get up and leave, perhaps saying "I have to go now, sorry I can't stay, wonderful meal?"

I often get my large dog exited, and let him run right in front of me, using him as a ram to clear out people. I don't always have this option though.

I watched Spy earlier today. Hilarious movie.

I also learned that if you want to clear out a crowd quickly just tell them you shit yourself.

"Unfortunately I had an uncle die 3 days ago and have to go take care of things at his house. He had a lot of mice in his house so its going to be a messy job. He was very sickly in his elder years and couldn't take care of himself very well. I'll see you later." Guarantee no one in their right mind will ask a single question to you about this.

*looks at my phone screen with wide, horrified eyes* "Uh, I, uh, I need, uh, I gotta go, uh, I'm sorry, uh really sorry, super sorry, but I really need to go, uh, bye, remember that I'm extremely apologetic." Man, I always use this trick. I stutter until I annoy the hell out of them. I blink furiously as though I am lying and nervous. This will unsettle them yet pique their curiosity. They'll end up letting me leave anyway. They'll think some urgent situation cropped up. The next time I see them, I'll avoid mentioning anything and brush them off if they ask. They'll think it's a "sensitive issue". Lmao, but that's just me. I'm sure there are tons of other methods. It's pretty easy to think on the spot if need be. Don't even think too much about it. :):)

The last time I went to a party I ended up hiding in the corner of the room under my poncho hoping I'd blend in to the background. (Who wears ponchos to a party anyways though...?)

Headphones. Even if you don't want to listen to music, just have them in your ears and look grumpy; people will avoid you.

'Yeah sorry I'm really tired , I haven't been able to sleep the past week'
