Perfect Creepy Wally Move
When a cheetah does the Creepy Wally on you, stay sharp and focused. No point in trying to run away. You are trapped. Just duck and cover. Or sit very still. And, if you feel safe, keep the camera rolling. Or maybe, laugh, like the driver in the Land Rover (see image below).
The Key elements for a successful Creepy Wally attack include being too close and hinting that something terrible might happen. But then, not actually doing the terrible thing. Creepy Wally waits patiently, slightly threatening and acting like they might do it — as soon as you let your guard down.
How do you get rid of a Cheetah sitting on the roof of your Land Rover?
You have to wait until the cheetah is ready to go or maybe turn the engine on to remind him that your car is not part of the terrain.
Looks like the driver of this vehicle is used to this kind of treatment from ferocious wild animals. Lucky for him, these two don’t appear to be hungry. I hope he has power windows that he can operate from where he’s sitting. What if, he has to roll each window up by hand. OMG!
Cheetahs Know They Frighten Tourists…And Both Love It!
Yikes! No Spray, Please! Just Go Away Now, OK?
Interrupt the Pattern – Change the Game
After a Creepy Wally attack, if you are angry or upset, you need help from your cornermen. Take time to reflect on what happened. Prepare yourself to have a different response for the next time it happens. Or even better, be ready to thwart the Creepy Wally attack before it happens. Get two steps ahead.
How to Thwart a DramaGuru Creepy Wally Attack
If someone Creepy Wally’d you — and got away with it, then they will return to try to do it again. Be ready next time!
Strive to be “Always Prepared”
- If possible, get out of reach. Stand an arm’s length away, if the person is supposed to be a friend, acquaintance, business connection, customer, etc.
- If you feel really uncomfortable, leave. Immediately. You don’t have to explain yourself.
- Tell him (or her) to leave. Hand him his hat, give him all his stuff and tell him to hit the road, Jack.
- Get help from someone near by. Place yourself between Creepy Wally and someone safe.
- Hang up the phone. Stop communicating by text. Block. Put his (or her) number in SPAM.
- If you’re safe, but feeling creeped out, endure it until it’s over like this cat when he went to the vet and really didn’t like it.
- If someone is undermining you at work, unraveling whatever you put together, you need to head to the bat-cave (conference room, cafeteria, coffee shop, etc.). Time to analyze your situation using DramaGuru positions, transitions and attacks. Then, once you’ve identified the real problem, work out a game plan.
Don’t try to solve this Creepy Wally problem on your own!
