How To Turn Down A Dare Graciously

Sometimes, when you find yourself being challenged to do things you're not comfortable with, a social situation can turn awkward. Here's how you can deflect such pressures and turn down a dare without losing face:

  • Excuse yourself after surreptitiously singing your ringtone.
  • Distract everyone with your double-jointed thumb.
  • Politely and graciously inform challenger that he is under citizen's arrest.
  • While acceptable, faking your sudden death may come off as unconvincing and overwrought in certain situations, such as in reaction to an invitation to play video trivia.
  • Go around eating from a 5-pound bag of carrots and explain that, unfortunately, you’re still working on the last dare.
