Today, I was pretending to talk on the phone with my wife just to avoid to speak with my boring coworker. After two awkward minutes of him waiting in front of my desk and me inventing a call, he handed me the disconnected phone cable and left. FML
LaLince tells us more :
Hi folks, OP here. He took the hint.. If there will be a next time, I'll use my cell phone.

#13, you sound like a very nice individual. Why don't you ask the OP to put you in touch with the boring co-worker? I'm sure he'd like to Skype with you. Let us know how your friendship goes.

Excellent point 45. We can get the standard pretty lady, and almost as pretty lady, and two manly guys, one more sensitive than the other, and you have all sorts of angles to approach the show. Maybe throw a trained dog into the show for kicks.

Gonna have to agree #2. OP deserves this. Next time out on headphones or use a cell phone.

Or - you know. Humour the boring guy? Or even better - why not be productive and say you've got a lot to do?

This is what happens when you brazenly lie to people.

Well I say I hope he gets the hint because OP clearly wants to avoid an "awkward" situation. You can see how that worked out. I, myself, would just leave.

Next time, fake a heart attack. That will be much less awkward. Although people might get suspicious when you get a heart attack on a daily basis and only when he's around.

It truly amazes me how people take things so literally on this site. Let's see if your can spot the theoretical technique I'm using in the following sentence so you can redeem yourself: "Because faking a life threatening medical condition is far less grande, elaborate, and disruptive than faking a casual phone conversation." *Hint* The rhetorical technique rhymes with "parkasm."
