I Hate Meaningless Discussions

    Time and Place

    There's a time and place for everything and surely we aren't going to have deep, meaningful conversations with each person we come into contact with.  There are going to be situations in life, many of them, where we have to participate in mindless small talk.  But I'd...

    I Won't Have One

    If you are losing me in the conversation, I will try and come back but otherwise I don't mind telling someone they lost me man.

    Go Away

    If you're all about small-talk, just get away from me. I'm a cashier, small talk is all I do all day long. The last thing I want to hear about when I'm not at work is the weather or the current local hot topic. *snore*

    Really?

    I'm unsure about what is meant by "meaningless" in this context. I suppose everyone will have their own perspective on it though. The conversations I hate are the ones that demean others for simple amusement and do harm. Gossip can get on my nerves and people who don't...

    To be honest everything seems meaningless. I can choose not to be here. I dint want to be here. Everything is a matter of choice so what's wrong with me opting out?
