I Hate Meaningless Discussions

    So Annoying

    I often take a back seat position when I'm in a group of people. I go completely quiet, and become an observer. I'm often amazed at the wasteful discussions that arise from these type of situations. Meaningless chatter about the most trivial of things. Some people can't help but...

    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...
