A "rescue call" is set up in advance of a family gathering that you don't want to attend. This arrangement involves appointing
a friend to call you at a pre-determined
time, providing you with an excuse to leave early. A well timed rescue call occurs immediately
after you have
Rescuee: Thanks for supper
- the meat
was good eh? Woosh!
Rescuer: Hey man, here's your 6:30
Rescuee: Oh hey. How are you?
Rescuer: I'll see you in a bit. Don't forget to pick up some rolling papers
on the way over.
Rescuee: Oh, yeah...don't worry, I'll be right there.
Rescuee: Fff, I gotta
go and help someone with some school stuff. I guess I'll see you later eh?
