    My Best Friend Has To Shut Up Sometime

    I love my best friend "T" but he talks too much. He knows this, but STILL every day we are talking about him for HOURS. Ehh. when we're in the car, I seriously wrap the car belt around my neck (half of the time not thinking) because im so bored out my mind. When I'm not doing...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    I absolutely cannot stand a boring conversation.

    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...

    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.

    Def one of my pet peeves,

    I have to keep re-centering myself mid convo. This is when gestures and expressions can be used to imply "shut the **** up!". Much tact is required though!

    but for real, I'm picking out every imperfection on your face and wishing I was doing algebra instead of this. I also hate when you're waiting for the end of a story that someone's telling and it isn't interesting at all so you wasted 10 minutes of concentration on some...

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