Learn a few phrases in a rare language that most people don't understand. If someone calls at you to stop, then you can play dumb. Smile, wave, and say thank you in that foreign language. The greeter will think you don't understand what they're saying. In that moment when they're confused and wondering how to get through to you, get out the door.

The reason I suggest a rare language is because if you try this with Spanish, for instance, there's a very high likelihood that the greeter might speak that language, so they won't be confused. The trick here is to baffle them just long enough for you to make your getaway. Of course, you need to get the hell out of the parking lot before anyone comes after you, but there have been more than enough posts about how to do that.
