    I don't go out much and have to attend social events in a bar and pub

    Only thing is I am scared my mind will go blank when I'm ordering food in front of my colleagues at a table or ordering a drink at a bar.

    What should I do if my mind goes blank in the both scenarios?


    Deep breaths
    Then say what you want to order
    Happens to me all the time

    You can just tell the waiter/bartender that you haven't quite decided yet and they're usually happy to come back to you in a few minutes.

    Also most pubs/bars have websites so maybe check if they have their food and drink menu to see online and maybe decide before you leave home so it's easier for you
