2. When you approach a store clerk for help…

…you think you look like this…

..but you actually look like this

3. And when the cashier tries to make small talk…

4. When you drop something…

…calling attention to yourself…

5. Crammed in an elevator…

…you wish you could do this.

6. And when they try to bring you into the conversation…

7. When you finally speak up,

everyone is LOOKING at you!

8. And their expressions seem to say:

9. No matter how friendly people are…

…your first instinct is to hide.

10. Party Invitations…

11. You prep for the shindig…

…but when you get there…

12. When someone waves hello and starts moving towards you to chat…

13. When you have to introduce yourself…

15. Approaching a stranger at a bar…

16. But you can handle hanging out with a few friends

17. Then some more of their friends show up…

…suddenly there are Too. Many. People.

18. You try to stay calm…

And you feel like this

…but you have to excuse yourself.
