By writing this post, I could get kicked out the Man Club.
Scenario: You are forced to engage a small group of strangers for business reasons in a casual environment.
Mancode #53: Most dudes dread being in a small setting with people that are not their “boys”. When you must be in the presence of strangers for business purposes, it can be especially nerve racking. To avoid unnecessary awkwardness, there is a foolproof way to engage them without saying a word — it is called Sports Simulation. This is the simple act of “practicing” your favourite action as it relates to sports. Most guys resort to the golf swing. Other guys prefer the swinging of the bat, while yet other guys will shadow box. All of these are acceptable. The Sports Simulation is best used when there is a lull in the conversation or when you are trailblazing about your high school glory days. Use the Sports Simulation tactic carefully, or else you could get drafted by a passing sports agent while you are representing your company in a social setting. If you sense you are being scouted, stop the Sim immediately and look for fist-bumps from those around you while you howl with maniacal laughter.
