Step 1: Lean into them Lean towards them. That's right: get even closer to their face. It sounds counterintuitive, but you'll break through their miniscule personal space wall, forcing them to take a step back. Step 2: Fake a sneeze Open your mouth and flare your nostrils as though a big ol' sneeze is about to spray thousands of snot particles all over their face. Step 3: Inquire about their breath Ask them if they just ate garlic. Unless they have no sense of shame, they'll immediately open up the distance between you. Tip They might even be so embarrassed by the implication of bad breath that they'll leave altogether. Step 4: Spray them While they're talking, collect some saliva in your mouth so that when it's your turn to talk, you hit them with a little spittle. Step 5: Tell them you're claustrophobic Ask them to take a step back, explaining that you're pathologically claustrophobic. In fact, if you don't get some space, you might vomit. If that doesn't make them take a step back, nothing will. Did You Know? Actor Judge Reinhold played "Aaron the Close Talker" in a 1994 Seinfeld episode.
