It doesn't have to be during a high-profile event; walk outs happen even while you're with your friends habang nagkakaasaran or with your jowa while you're having a nasty LQ. And it can happen to any of us. We bet many of you have done so at least once in the past. Aminin!
Are we saying walking out's cool? Nope, not by a long shot. In fact, we dread the time when it's our turn to awkwardly head to the exit. But hey, as they say, sh*t happens. And when your brain's suddenly thinking it's the best thing to do, always remember this: it can get worse, especially if you don't follow these tips:
1. DON'T DESTROY ANYTHING OR PUNCH ANYONE
Walking out is bad enough, but when you also smash something up in the process, then the whole thing will look way worse than it is. This is not the WWE, bro, where destroying something or punching someone is part of every conversation. Plus, you'll look like someone who has some anger management issues.
2. POLITELY LET THE AUDIENCE OR THE HOST KNOW YOU'RE WALKING OUT
We know, we know, this move reeks of more awkwardness. But we deem it as much better than just bolting out the door suddenly and unannounced. Something like, "I'm sorry, I'm sorry." is good enough, and tells others you're still a polite dude with some class. This is one of the reasons why we think Michael Bay actually handled his meltdown quite nicely.
