- Pretend nothing happened. If your accident was not noticeable (e.g droped a piece of food), move on and don't draw attention.
- If you are sure everyone has noticed it, it’s best to make a joke of the situation. It will help ease the tension of the moment.
- Say "I am sorry". If you did a verbal mistake such as saying something inappropriate, apologize and change the subject.
