How To Exit From A Boring Conversation

Have you ever been at an event and found yourself in a conversation with someone you have absolutely nothing in common with?  You have most likely felt trapped.  Here is a way to exit that conversation without offending that person:

As you close the conversation, shake the hand of that person and comment on something they discussed with you during the conversation.

For example:  “It was a pleasure meeting you Joe.  Good luck in your upcoming chess tournament.”

Don’t make up a lie for an exit strategy.  That person will see you did not visit the restroom, get a drink, or make a phone call.
