After I walked out of a job...I dedicatedly avoided the subway at certain times when I knew my old pals might be oot & aboot...:)
I think most of us do. It's called the survival instinct.
Yes I have. Also here on Amirite, I try to avoid certain people.
A couple of times..
Good judgment call..
It took me twice as long in the store the other day because I had to change direction five times. There were five people I wanted to avoid talking to - it's a small town so it can get tricky avoiding all those people.
I've had a few "Damn it, now I have to deal with them" moments, but I can't recall ever turning around and leaving because of it. Too much effort...
