I find it a bit boring and tedious, if it goes on too long. However, I think that it's important to be socially functional enough to be able to converse with all sorts of people, in all kinds of situations....and sometimes this involves engaging in small talk. If I'm in a shop or at a bus stop (for example) and someone wants to have a chat, I'll always respond in a friendly way....unless the person was totally weird or creepy. I think it's rude not to...even if it means we're getting caught up in conversation that's boring and trivial. There are so many lonely people in the world, and for some of them, chatting away inanely might be the only social contact they ever have. If it gets too much, or goes on too long, though, I'll eventually politely excuse myself and leave.
I hate it. I can feel myself "glazing over" and I always hope it doesn't look too obvious. Just last evening I chose to sit in a corner by myself rather than mingle with the crowd whilst at a "do" . . . I had a cup of tea, I was happy. LOL
Thanks Rice! I won't be looking for photos anytime soon! My husband, (who's a very patient person,) doesn't like me 'wasting time' answering these questions!
I'm supposed to be getting rid of the boxes of papers in my bedroom! These are articles I'm hoping to stick into scrapbooks 1 day, as well as coloured papers & items I may be able to use to make my collage cards with. Yes, they do look a mess!!! I asked for AA's to be be sent weekly which I thought meant once a week, but I know have 153 unread ones, sitting in a folder as they come in each day! Ops!
Hi miro_ . . . I just go to Google Images and type in something relevant . . in this case I think I put "boring conversation" . . then I save them to the destop and upload them with my answer . . then I delete them or I would be overrun. Hahaha :-))
Oh miro_ I do sympathise . . . . once things get out of boxes and out of control, it's like trying to put a genie back in a bottle. Moving house at the moment is making me want to go back to bed and pull the covers over my head. Tell your husband we like you here on AA, so he has to share :-)))
