Did you ever have a need for a little personal space? There have been times when I’ve had the company of a close talker, and I really wanted just a little space. But creative Sydney artist Miguel Marguez has a solution for these awkward moments. He has created, and none too soon, the Personal Space Preference Cards.
The cards include such helpful topics, such as, “You are standing too close” (cue Police “Don’t Stand So Close To Me” song here) and the all time favorite, “I want to be alone right now”. And who would argue with, “Take _ steps back”.
But the best part is the last line, “Please acknowledge your understanding with a slight nod only, and pretend you never saw this card.” Yes, this could be one of the greatest social tools ever created. I need these.
