Love to 'Irish Goodbye?' 16 people share the best way to bail on an event.


Sneaking out of a house party and texting 'sorry I had to leave' immediately after, telling everyone you're getting another drink only to walk right by the bar and out the door, or hugging everyone you've ever met goodbye--we all have our go-to way of heading back home...

So, when a Reddit user asked, 'What's your best 'we'd love to stay but...' excuse to leave an event?' people were ready to share their favorite way to skip the long goodbyes and abruptly jump ship on an awkward situation.

I don't sleep a lot and I work third shift, so I'm tired like all the time (3 of 4 last events that have taken place at a friend's house I've fallen asleep randomly at). So I just tell people I'm tired and it's a long bus ride home. - fxkmehxrder

I, like many others suffering with the condition, can sense a migraine coming on minutes before it hits. If I can get to my medicine and darkness within the next few minutes, I'm solid.

So I occasionally say I need to go RIGHT NOW or I will have a debilitating migraine and throw up everywhere. It cuts out the long, drawn out goodbyes and people don't argue. - BoopsForTheSoul


Always have a plan before you go. Preface the acceptance with, 'Well, I can't stay because xyz, but I'll come by for a while.' Then, if you're having fun and want to stay, you can act like you worked something out for xyz and now you can stay. - GalacticHeimat


Go for the full Bender: 'Well, I'm tired of this room and everyone in it.' - apetc


A friend of mine actually uses the 'I'd love to stay and chat, but I've got ice cubes in the freezer.' - Charrawazt
