Just Keep Fleeing

People who tell you you can't run away from your problems are lying. You totally can; and in the case of an animal attack, you probably should.

I mean, if a bear has got her eye on you for dinner I don't think you're going to be able to "talk it out". If a walrus thinks you're threatening their territory I don't think you're going to "come to a reasonable compromise". If your roommate knows you used up the last of their expensive shampoo you shouldn't try to "use your words". Just run. Run as far and fast as you can. 

Soon your problems will get bored, tired, or distracted and then you'll be free.* So go ahead and lace up your shoes. Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run...


*This totally doesn't work on student loan debt. That problem will chase you forever and ever. You best strategy in that situation is to play dead.
