    I send myself a quick email so it beeps and then I walk away like I need to do something important. What do you guys do?

    Nothing. Just holding it gives off that "busy" look.

    Usually if I have my head down, attention focused on the bb people leave me alone. Not always the case.. but usually

    I don't usually use it to avoid people, but I find when I'm in an elevator with a coworker I barely know, I can just take it out of my purse and type a little message to someone, or pretend to, so I don't have to make small talk. It looks like "work stuff" so they won't make small talk either.

    Works like a charm.

    I must be in the minority, but I go out of my way to make small talk because I know others hate it.

    I play music. Preferably screamo, at an intolerable volume. "Excuse me!" And then I proceed to "answer" the phone.

    Wouldn't showing off lead to small talk?

    Lmao, I read *important* emails from up to 2 days ago. If that doesn't appear to be helping I will sigh and call Mom. She plays along rather well.

    nope it works like magic! I just type in the heading "hi" and sent it to "me" in my address book (I put that in my address book for that reason). With weeks of doing that, I can send those messages incredibly fast Works every time! Most of the time, people bug me.

    I don't ever use my BB to avoid people. If I don't want to be or can't be bothered, I just say so.
