What would you do in this scenerio!
Posted 2/10/16
So, I went to a warehouse to return a tv under warranty and I tried to strike a conversation to kill some time to a woman who was waiting with me BUT she kept talking about her life, her kids her husband, her family, her dreams her past experiences and likes and dislikes..and i was like....shit the fuck up already. So, I just ignored her and got my tv and went home.

What would you have done?

Actually, that's what I do with strangers.

If they randomly talk to me about their lives, I kind of dooze off, nod my head, and smile.
Then, I try to leave as soon as possible before it turns into an hour long story.

Wouldn't have talked to her in the first place other than the business I need to conduct there.

I would just act like I'm listening and just nod and say ooh every now and then.

Either you lead the conversation in another direction, or you just cut it with some akward comment that will make her feel uneasy and basically keep her quiet for a while. You could also have prepared some entertainment like taking with you a video-game console, or some books (whatever kind) or watch anime on your phone or many other possibilities. But as people mentioned talking with a stranger unless you find some common hobbies will more than likely mean that you will speak about each other lifes ....So that's not really a great idea

Your first mistake was talking to her, and that's how I know I wouldn't be in that situation. But for the sake of the argument if by some chance I was magically in that situation I would just straight up leave.

Just don't talk to anyone, you'll save some energy.

If we had a Crunchyroll meetup it seems like there would be a whole lotta shutting the fuck up. (And probably a gentle hum of more electronics than your local Best Buy)

I'd probably tell her that I wasn't feeling well, apologize, and either say I want to relax or move to another location to wait. ...IF somehow a conversation got started.
