Caught in a sticky situation? Practice these skills and get ready to cope.
Step 1: Shift the subject
Shift the subject by listening for words in a conversation that can lead you to a memorable or funny situation off the current topic.
Step 2: Distract the speaker
Distract the speaker by asking if they or anyone listening to the conversation needs a drink or a snack.
Be polite by saying, "Excuse me," first.
Step 3: Ask a question
Ask a question that is designed to change the focus of the conversation.
Step 4: Give a compliment
Give a compliment to the speaker about their appearance, weight, outfit, or overall look.
Step 5: Mention changing the subject
