A lesson in social avoidance from a true expert
Arriving back in Munich after Bayern’s winter training trip to Doha, Thomas Müller really did not want to speak to the reporters waiting at the gate. So like many people do when trying to avoid unwanted social interaction, he pretended like he was talking on the phone. Unlike many people, he decided to use his passport instead of his actual phone to achieve this ruse.
Though it might seem strange at first, this is actually a stroke of genius. How can reporters ask questions when they’re too busy laughing/questioning your sanity?
It’s quick thinking like this that got Müller to the lofty heights of being the Directing Manager of Carrots.
