verb. The act of escaping from an awkward situation.

"Crabbing out" often follows "awkward turtle".

The signal for crabbing out is placing both hands next to your shoulders and rotating your wrists forward and towards your neck, a few times. This represents a crab moving sideways.
Person: We were all standing in a circle and didn't realize John was standing there. When someone mentioned how much of a wanker he was, I was quick to crab out.
