This could help the next time you need to talk to your boss . . . or you’re nervous about going up to someone at a bar. When you’re walking up to two people in the middle of a conversation, here’s a trick to figure out if it’s okay to interrupt.

Look at which way their FEET are pointing.

According to a body language expert, if they see you and turn their entire body so their feet are pointed at YOU, it means the conversation probably isn’t that important. And it’s okay to join in.

But if they only turn their head or upper body . . . with their feet still pointed at each OTHER . . . it means they’re fully engaged in the conversation, and it’s probably about something important.

So in that case, it’s best to keep walking and talk to them later.
