I would listen and continue to talk to her. I may not necessarily want to, but hey she may need someone to just talk to. The only time I would cut her off is if I was in a hurry. I would apologize and say I have to go,while thanking her for the conversation.

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?


I would have never struck up a conversation in the first place. If she had struck up the conversation with me, I would have given a a couple of brief polite replies and if she just kept going on and on, I I would have ignored her most likely; it's also quite likely that if there was room to move more than conversational distance away from her, I probably would have.

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.


Well it's like when I used to play Poke'mon, and the CPU's where allways like "I know what you want. You want to battle!" and I was allways like "NO! F@#%er that's why I was trying to avoid you." they might as well be all creepy saying stuff like "I shall meet you on the feild of battle for sectual COMBAT!" cuz I ain't listen just rapidly pressing the A Button desperately trying to escape my would be attacker. #boku no pikachu

I've had my moments though. Sometimes I just can't carry a conversation, then it becomes awkward silence. I don't do it to be rude, just unsure of what to talk about. xD.

I think the only real time I stop listening is when I'm cashiering. Some of our regulars always return items for some reason and you kind of pick up on their game, so it gets a little annoying. One lady I know once returned shampoo to me saying her daughter didn't like it. A couple days later she returns the exact same shampoo to another employee for the exact same reason. So I don't really listen to her when she gives reasons for returning something. I'm just :"I see."

If I'm out alone, I'd usually whip out the earbuds and my phone. If I'm waiting while in public, I won't make eye contact on purpose. Keep the earbuds on. Easy as pie.

pretend to listen and emote when appropriate.

In that situation, I probably would hear her out. I generally have a hard time telling people to "shut the fuck up" unless it's my brother.

The polite way is to pretend your phone vibrated and then excuse yourself to address an important text you've been waiting for.

I would have done the same as you. No further engagement of conversation but no rude comments, just leave.

I have had a lot of this when I worked as a bartender. The things they tell you

I would let her keep talking, as much as I don't want her to
Plenty of times,when I was younger, told to shut up and whenever I talk to much I ask people if I'm talking too much because I don't want to be told to shut up, makes me feel like they don't give a shit

And this is why I am plugged into a set of expensive headphones when I have to deal with anyone I don't give two shits about. I say what I have to and then back to my audio exile from the rest of the world I go back to. I even close my eyes to boot.
