At least once in your entire life, you must have experienced some or the other awkward situation that may have landed you into trouble. But relax, you are not the only one. Facing an awkward situation can sometimes be inevitable but your reaction is what makes all the difference.
Think of a moment when you texted the wrong person or the one when you got trapped in boring family conversations. We all have been there, feeling if we could press a rewind button make a quick exit. Isn’t it? Every such situation has two escape routes: you can either handle it smartly or make a fool out of yourself.

On the closing note, you can just say – wish you good luck and thank you for your services to the company.
Don’t worry how hard you try, you will never be able to answer them correctly. Making weird faces may feel like the only option left.
But if you can handle this situation smartly too. Even though deep down you are bitching that person, you can smile here (even faking a smile will be ok) and rather than answering his question, ask him how is his family doing? Or just say,
“I have to rush, we’ll talk later!"
