I just got back from the gym this morning and it was almost empty, it was great. It’s usually full of people getting on the machines and staying there while listening to music, talking on the phone or just plain staring into space. I also got up at 6 this morning to get on the phone to try and get our internet connection fixed. I actually got a live person on the phone. I must admit that Glenn finally fixed it but that’s not the point of this post.

If so, where do you go or what do you do to avoid people when you feel overwhelmed by them?
