Here we come! If you have a friend in whom you easily get bored, no worries, this article will show you what do when your bored with a friend.
1. Answer Fake Call
This is the one of the smartest things to do when your bored with a friend. Just set your phone on a alarm, maybe for few minutes. Put a special ringing tone for the alarm. Once the phone rings for the alarm, pick it up as if you are answering a phone call. Pretend that Someone, your boss or any of your superiors, requested your presence. Speak up so that your friend will hear your conversation.
After the call, tell your friend that your presence is needed by your boss or whosoever. In that, your friend may not have any other option than to leave.
Make sure you follow him and leave, then when both of you depart, and you are sure that he has gone far, you may now come back home and have your rest. That sounds tricky, right?😂
2. Take Him For A Walk
If you are bored with him, and you don’t know how to tell him to go. Just tell him you are feeling heavy, that you want both of you to go for a walk. Yes, you will be activated during the walk exercise. And when you are done with the walk, he may not follow you to your place, he may decide to go to his place to take a shower.
3. Tell Him You Are Having Headache
Yes, this is what to do when your bored with a friend; just lie to him that you are having slight headache. In this, you will have the privilege to lie down and pretend that you want to sleep. This will make him uncomfortable, and he may leave in a short time.
Note that it may not be morally wise to lie that you are sick. Even in most religions, it is not advisable to lie about anything, let alone lying with sickness. What if the headache comes? So I may not strongly advise that you lie that you are having headache, unless you are truly having headache.
