    Omg I hate the regular conversations

    that go "What are you doing?" "Nothing." "HBY". I just try to avoid all those messages. Is this really what society has come to?

    Pitcher, confidential clerk in the office of Harvey Maxwell, broker, allowed a look of mild interest and surprise to visit his usually expressionless countenance when his employer briskly entered at half past nine in company with his young lady stenographer. With a snappy "Good...

    Boredom

    I have a friend who likes to talk about herself. (blah, blah, blah, blah, etc.) I find myself staring into space, working my mind to something else. And there, I'm nodding my head in her babble, saying : "oh's", 'really?', 'yeah', 'hmmm'. In time she notices it. And there, I look...

    My Mind Is Some Where Else

    Yeah it's true I can't seem to pay attention during a boring conversation. And this is why I don't talk to my grandparents, just kidding their dead. But yeah if there's one thing I can't take is a boring *** conversation. So if you ever talk to me you better make it really...

    Whenever people try to talk to me and either a) give me a one worded response b/ talk about mundane **** c] just stand there looking stupid it is so ******* annoying. I hate feeling like I always have to be the one coming up with the convo starters like...it kills me how people...

    Outer Space.

    If someone is talking to me, or if I am in class and my teacher is doing a boring lecture, I will often daydream, or space out. Especially if the conversation just makes no sense, my eyes will wander off elsewhere.

    The Bear

    Like a bear Out into the air I stare. A conversation should Say everything it would, To any hearer that could. Boredom settles in, Playing on the mind worse than gin, A grimace never a grin! Talk of things interesting, Talk never depressing, Speak kindly and stressing.

    Say No More, Please!

    "Say no more, please!"... That's what I keep on telling to myself when I happened to be with an ego-centric person... So annoying to be with a person who loves to talk much about himself/herself... He/She don't even give me a chance to talk or respond to whatever he or she's...

    People bore me in general. I find having a conversation with most about as entertaining as eating a bowl of unfrosted mini wheats without any milk. Not even a sprinkle of sugar.
