50 Introverts Reveal The Crazy Things They’ve Done To Avoid Human Interaction 

These introverts from Ask Reddit have gone to great lengths to avoid human interaction.

19. I use digital pre-bought bus tickets on my phone to avoid talking to the bus driver. The app was down one day so I walked the 2 hours to work.

20. Girl Scouts selling cookies at entrance to Walmart. Note, it’s the north entrance and very near where I parked. I’ll come back to this…

Usually I just motion to my pockets, smile and say “Sorry, maybe next time,” if I say anything at all.

This time, for reasons passing understanding, I blurt out “I’ll grab some on the way out.”

I do my shopping, use self check (because introvert) and get ready to leave. Panic washes over me as I realize they are still at the entrance, I have no cash and I’ve made what is basically an introvert blood-oath to buy cookies.

Again, my car is parked just outside the north entrance. I promptly walk across the Walmart to the south entrance and exit there. I then completely encircle the parking lot on the off chance they might see me, and sneak into my car like an uncoordinated introvert ninja.
