The situation: You're at a party of ballers, but you can't stand anyone. You're gritting your teeth so hard you're convinced that you just swallowed a chunk of enamel. The choices: Excuse yourself to the bathroom and never return, mingle for 30 minutes before making a good excuse to exit, or suck it up and stay the course - because you never know what offers will come when drunken conversations ensue. The obvious answer: Remain at the party for just enough time to have a few cocktails and get a few business cards.
