To Do (17 left)

  • First think to yourself why you don't want to talk to them.
  • If you start to get mad, and have that feeling of "ugh", you are on the right page.
  • This is really for people you see at school but other places might work too.
  • Only say hi back when they say it first.
  • And then they start to talk to you.. Its okay, thats why you are reading this right now.
  • Don't really say much, just nod or say "uh huh" but make sure you are not making it too obvious that you dont want to talk to them. Again, that's why you are reading this right now.
  • Oh great, they start to ask you questions like "How are you?" or "How was this, and that?" "Have you seen this and that?" Have you been here and there?"
  • Before answering, think quickly for 2 secs "Is 'I don't know' an acceptable answer?" If so, go for it.
  • IF NOT, make sure you give them good answers but short and concise. Still don't make them sound too apathetic. Like if they say "Do you like apples?" say "They are alright." You are trying to end the conversation so give them answers that are less likely
  • When they keep on talking to you, ACT BUSY.
  • Pull out random papers and start whispering to yourself something like "ah. crap." or "ohmygosh." And turn to them and say "uh huh." or "Oh sorry.. I have so much things to do..."
  • Make sure you are actually doing some work; they are not stupid. On the bright side, this will help you pull up your grade. Winning.
  • Typically, since they are your "friends" or so they call themselves, they will feel bad and leave you alone for at least, a day.
  • But you can't always be doing your "work" and "study" for tests. That's too fishy and obvious.
  • When you are studying for anything always try to have your other friends with you so they are not constantly talking to you only. Also so you can take some time off by talking to them.
  • If none of these work, worst case scenario, just stop being fun. Don't really say much and just listen to them and act like you don't know how to respond to them.
  • JUST ACT STUPID. they will get tired of this. I'M POSITIVE.
