Have you ever done something really embarrassing or shameful? Perhaps you waved down a friend down the street only to realize that the person is a complete stranger. Or maybe you accidentally greeted your boss with “Hi Mom” because you just got off the phone with your real mom and your boss also sports floral dresses and a soccer mom perm. Maybe it was more egregious than that and you became so incredibly self-absorbed that you dropped off the face of the earth and put off everything that would not immediately jeopardize your 1) immediate well-being or 2) paycheck, although not necessarily in that order.
Regardless, sometimes the only thing your psyche can manage to do is to pretend it never happened. You keep walking, you don’t turn around, you make no acknowledgments in future conversations, you create such a strong air of ignorance that it causes self-doubt on the other party’s side.
Yeah, it’s kind of like that. Sorry.
