DH is not a very social guy. IT's not that he does not enjoy people at all, but he likes them better in small doses, and is very much an introvert. This winter there have been a lot of issues at his job, but none involving him. Yesterday one of the instigators of previous problems invited everyone out to dinner, but DH did not want to go. It usually leads to coworkers drinking too much, and picking fights, so it was really not appealing to him.
When one of his coworkers (big drinker) asked if he was not going since his name was not on the list, DH replied in the negative. Que coworker starting in on his "But you must come! It will be fun! You should come!!!!eleventy!"
Dh: No is a complete sentence.
Coworker: Ok! *wanders off*
DH was so happy he got out of it so easy this time! Usually they nag and nag. He said he was very happy with his new Ehell superpower!
