I find it interesting how some people in conversation feel like they have to keep talking as if any silence whatsoever means they have lost.
Another thing I find interesting (and yes I’ve found myself doing it a time or two), is when people who instead of telling you things, its more about them regurgitating what they told someone else. In other words, most of what they say begins with:
“Like I was telling my brother the other day…”.
I especially love it when they can’t remember who they were telling, so it goes something like this:
“Like I was telling……….dang, who was that………….I was telling someone the other day….was that my cousin or my cousin’s husband….well anyway, I was telling SOMEONE the other day about….oh dang, I forgot what I was telling them…….what was that again………oh well nevermind.”
If I was on The Office, this is where I glance over at the camera and slightly raise my eyebrows.
