4. You know how to subtlety let someone know they need to change the story they're in the middle of telling because the person they're talking about is right behind them.

5. You're really good at giving the "I didn't hear you but I'm going to pretend I did" thumbs-up.

6. You can make small talk with fathers-in-law and mothers-in-law.


7. You've mastered the art of ALWAYS knowing what to do with your hands.

8. You're all about telling someone if they have something in their teeth without making it a big deal.

10. You're always on call for your mate when they're on an awkward date and they need an excuse to get out of it.

11. And if your friend ends up with sauce on them in a suspect place, you too will recreate the suspect sauce placement.

Being a socially awkward situation saver is a thankless task. So from all of us at Sprite – thank you, legends.
