|This is a great example!|
I avoid people all the time! Whether it was at school or work, it has happened.
At school I avoided those people that talk too much and like to chit chat while on my way to class. I don't like chit chat , so I avoid them. If I can't avoid them, it's hi and bye if I can't ignore them.
At work, I avoid everyone, especially if its on my way to the bathroom. It gets annoying when you need to take a piss and on your way, there are like 5 customers and you have to avoid eye contact just like in the Pokemon games, if not, you're fucked!
This is exactly what I mean.
