That awkward moment you realize you might be feeling a little
anti-social “socially selective” when someone starts walking towards where you’re sitting in a cafe and you keep thinking, “Please don’t talk to me. Please don’t talk to me. Please don’t talk to me.” as they approach.
It worked though.
They didn’t talk to me.
Although they did talk to the person sitting near me. And that was annoying, too.
So next time it’ll have to be, “Please don’t talk to me or that other person. Please don’t talk to me or that other person…” ;)

Paula: Ha. I’ll avoid entire aisles in grocery stores, because there’s another person on it. It’s not anti-social. It is being socially selective. :)
