Look, I get it. Interacting with people is SOOOOOO hard. Wah! You're just so "awkward".
But when you fuck up in public, say for instance you bump into someone in the grocery aisle or you're blocking the entire space with your cart while you daydream about kale smoothies...
As I understand it, being a somewhat adult person, the socially acceptable response in these situations is uttering a quick "excuse me." or "sorry." I'll even take a jovial "oops!" Then we move on with out lives!
But no, you look at the floor and pretend the other person doesn't exist until they move on. Listen, you live in a fucking city, with other people. You gotta do better than this Portland!
