This piece of understated brilliance belongs to the genius of Hyperbole and a Half, the creator of the Sneaky Hate Spiral and other things.  It’s from a post called “The Four Levels of Social Entrapment,” which, as a person with very few social skills and even fewer when stressed, I know like the back of my hand.   I had to copy the rest of us on this moment, because of how well we know it, and how little we get to talk about it.  There—oh that feels good.

(For anyone who’s ever had me flake on them—please know that I post this comic to make a statement about my own social retardedness, not anyone else’s…sigh…)
