I was faced with this situation a while ago, and then again last night while talking to a co-worker. She said that she was having problems with these guys while at a local club. Her and her friends were dancing, minding their own business when these guys started to dance upon them. She tried to be nonchalant, as she typically doesn’t like to be confrontational, and started dancing away; but the guys continued to bother her and her friends. It had gotten so bad, that they ended up just having to leave the club and end their fantastical night out on a bad note.
This instantly made me think of ‘The Face” that Jenna Marbles, a blogger/entertainer who is hilariously awesome, had ‘invented’ to get these guys to stop ‘dance raping’ you. The video is below for those of you who haven’t seen it and need some wisdom.
Now, I haven’t used the techniques in her other video, but I can say from experience that “The Face” works. I’ve used it once to make these creepy Mo-Fo’s to leave me alone. It works. But I have also found something else that works, and it’s a variation of what Jenna had said. Acting in extreme emotion. But I took it a step further, and just went bat shit crazy. No man wants to deal with a loose cannon, like Jenna explained, and no man wants to deal with someone who might potentially stab them. Anyway, my technique is just get angry. Really angry, and revert to your inner ghetto child. Be loud. Be obnoxious. Flail your arms, and make them feel really uncomfortable. Uses of the phrases like “Oh Heeeeellll no” and such are encouraged. Because when you make a scene, you draw attention to the fact they’re being a douche canoe and won’t leave you the alone. They realize this, and will never talk to you again.
Now I’ve only used this once, but it seems to work. I don’t recommend that you use it often, because then you’ll really just seem like a crazy bitch. Well, unless you are a crazy bitch, and if that’s the case carry on. But I mean, these are meant to be used in emergencies. They’re effective and useful, but over use might make people think that you are in fact a psycho. So be thoughtful if you really never want to never talk to this person again in your life, and then act accordingly.
So, have you ever heard of “The Face”? Have you ever been in this kind of situation, and, if so, do you have any helpful hints that you’d like to share? Because sharing, my friends, is caring.
