Did you ever notice that some people just talk, regardless of whether you asked them a question? :D haha That’s SOOOO ANNOYING! :D
I kind of covered everything I wanted to say about this topic in http://billcammack.com/2009/10/03/how-to-pretend-to-listen-cricket-status/ but I find it fascinating that some people just can’t tell when you don’t give a flying **** about what they’re saying.
Maybe they don’t care. o_O Maybe they just like to hear themselves speak.
I’m that way, in that sometimes, I’m not really listening to what a chick is saying, but I’m really enjoying her Jersey accent, so HEARING her is fascinating, as opposed to LISTENING to her. :D
The same thing happens in elevators. When you’re in an elevator with someone, and they just can’t STFU. They just *HAVE* to talk “to you” about something, most often the weather, and you’re like “Why doesn’t this person just chill, remain silent, and get off on their floor? o_O”
I suppose the worst would be when you’re trying to enjoy sex with someone, and they incessantly run their mouths about irrelevant drivel, but that’s neither here nor there…
What about you? o_O .. Do you find yourself talking for no reason? When nobody asked you anything?
Are you sure that the person you’re talking to cares about what you’re saying?
