Remember the time you met an old high-school friend at the supermarket? How about that evening when a co-worker sat next to you on the bus practicing his social skills?

BuzzFeed's Lara Parker has compiled a unique collection of honest graphs about these situations and the social norms in responding to them. Sometimes we just have to participate in a conversation even though all our instincts are screaming otherwise and the thought 'i hate people' is on repeat in our heads. Of course, running away (or in extreme circumstances even punching a person in his face) and joining the Anti-Social Club often seems compelling but the etiquette demands to nod, smile and engage in the small talk. And that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Perhaps if more people saw these graphs, they would start less painfully disturbing chit-chat in the first place. But if you want to, then firmly hold on to your people suck beliefs, because nobody really cares.

I can relate to this very much. I'm never busy because I have no life but I legit hate people so I just say I'm busy.

I have 3 friends: My Mom, my daughter, and my home healthcare lady. That's it and I'm okay with that. And it's really hard to even think about making friends with anyone else because I don't trust people. And I mean I REALLY, REALLY don't trust people. I live alone, just me and my dog. Nice and quiet out here in the country. And I wouldn't trade it for anything. Being an introvert isn't so bad, I enjoy my own company. Most people can't say that.

No, non of these. The fact that I'm not a people's person doesn't mean I'm an internet troll.

I'm not a fan of myself, either. I can simply tolerate me better.

Hating people as a hobbie is pretty lame
