That's a good question actually. I don't know where I'd be without my fake texting skills.

It's so awesome for when you're at a party and you don't know many people there and you need to have a drink or two before you're comfortable talking to randoms.

Or when the conversation turns to something that you have no contribution to.... whip out phone, pretend to text furiously......

Same! And instead of sitting and looking like I might be included, or leaving, instead I'll think up an opportunity to text someone something.

It's also great for bus trips, or waiting to meet a friend somewhere.....

Haha, I like their list of situations. My favourites:
Quote:
-When watching tv with the parents and there's a particularly awkward sex scene
-When someone's just had an angry outburst at someone else and nobody says anything and it's all tense and awkward for ages
-when you're sitting on the floor in the hallway outside your dorm room because you just walked in on your roommate and the nerdy guy down the hall having sex and you have to wait for them to finish up

oooooooh that's rough! I was going to say the fighting one!
That happens to me at work a lot, my seniors start bitching about collegues above me (and they really shouldn't do it in front of me) flip the phone out and pretend to be engrossed in texts!!

OOOOH and at the hair dresser, as I find having my hair cut THE most awkward time EVER.

The good news is that he said I can'y really make it much worse, and excerise is all good, so I can climb to my heart's content.
Sorry to hear that. But yeah, I agree that exercise can help. My knee would often be fine when I'm getting regular excercise and it would get sore when I wasn't

When shopping in town I used to pass a shop which was pretty empty apart from mannequins and some seats, I'm guessing that must be the place

Oh man,

Yup, waiting for friends out in public is probably the most often I do awkward texting

last time i went it was in invercargill and it was the total small town mentality, she knew someone who was a sister of someone i went to high school with. she kept going on about people i just did not care about. for fuck sakes, i left invercargill for a reason!

i did my first claim at the new branch and did it wrong! my mistake will cost the company $50. oops. not a great impression to make to my new boss really.

That's not cool!

You should try the one I go to. It's just up Symonds St from uni, and she's much easier to talk to than any of the others I've ever been to.
