No that's a legitimate fear. Personally, I've been known to lunge at/sick my tiger on people who beat me in bingo. You were right to purposely lose.
I have social anxiety too, although I've never had a problem shouting out bingo...then again I'm not sure when was the last time I played bingo. Don't worry about it, OP
I also have social anxiety I don't even have to talk in class because last time I fainted :( I just talk to my teacher. Anyway, bingo with old people is scary, once my brother one at an old folks home and the people there were saying " dumb boy doesnt know what he's doing!" and "he cheated he used his smart phone and went on the internet!"
You can always ask your neighbor to shout it out for you. People are generally polite and understanding when it comes to social shyness.
Tell the person next to you to call out instead. Edit: too slow again. 6 already beat me to it.
We're all strangely awkward in our own way. But you'll feel better with a little more confidence. Go on, try it :)
