Chapter 13. Conversations > Conversational faux pas

Conversational faux pas

At some point, you’ll inevitably make a conversational faux pas. One common mistake is to say something awkward when making small talk. For example, you share your negative opinion about company XYZ’s advertising campaign, and then learn that one of the people in the group works in advertising at company XYZ.

No matter how badly you might want to make your exit, you must stay and deal with the situation. If you simply end the conversation, you’ll leave a bad impression, and you’ll probably still be embarrassed the next time you meet the individual.
