How To Trap Socially Awkward People

I signed up to paint little kid faces at a wildlife center tomorrow. I was like "Yeah sounds like a good idea!" in class. Then when I get home and get into weekend mode it's just like "Why did I sign up for that? Man I don't want to."

The trick is that if I want to cancel I would have to call them on the telephone and speak and stuff.
MY WEAKNESS.

I can't call people I really can't can't nope no non nope won't ahhhhh

It's really bad when you'd rather drive out and do a 3 hour shift of face painting than speak to strangers on the phone.
(Also these people bring in animals for us to study/photograph/draw every week so I can't just ditch them.)

That is a conundrum. Either disappoint a bunch of kids, or not deal with sticky, gooey, whiny kids. Hmm...

You haven't considered the best and only option:

Get someone to call for you and say you were rushed to hospital.

I did go along and do the face painting thing. I don't know if I had a change of heart because I felt better, or I felt bad because they really needed volunteers.

AND I STILL HAD TO CALL THEM ANYWAYS BECAUSE I LOST MY WALLET THERE
HAHAHAHAHA
AHAHAHAHA


They found it though.
Now to drive without my driver's license. *v*

@Shining Raichu
I don't like to lieeeeeee. Or atleast create scenarios that will catch up to me later, ala class.

@twistedpuppy
I was really surprised most of them were well mannered. Even some parents were like "I have never seen them sit this still before"
It's was only the littlest ones who moved around a lot that caused trouble, but they can't really help it and don't really care of they have a craptastic ghost because of it.

@Kura
I wish, because I could avoid the calling by talking to the rep in class and then cancel online but I don't that they're...really web based I think.
