How To Talk Your Way Out Of A Bar Fight

Unless you starred in “Roadhouse,” nothing ruins a night quite like getting into a stupid bar fight. That’s why that guys at Lifehacker found a bar security employee to give his expertise on how to best avoid the fight in the first place. The first tip you don’t need an expert for: don’t be an a-hole. That being said, sometimes the a-hole finds you, and it helps to know how to talk your way out of a potentially ugly situation.

Here are some recommendations:

  • Develop your sense of awareness – Situational awareness can keep you out of all kinds of messes
  • Take a breath – keep your hands in front of you with palms out – make it clear you don’t want to fight – …but you’re prepped if it does go that far
  • Apologize and introduce yourself – Even if you don’t mean it, it might help everyone from getting into something more ugly
  • Shift their aggression to sympathy – Pretend you got dumped or fired
  • Remind the guy that you both are there to drink and have fun – Maybe even buy a round
  • Worst case: get security or find another bar

If any of those don’t work…then go get ‘em, Swayze!
