:agree:I avoid them and when they catch up to me and start the rambling, I pretend to me listening.
Same here. I HATE it. There's only a few people in my life that I don't mind talking to on the phone... my dad (we talk every single day at 9am, sharp), my wife, my uncle, and my brother. That's it.I hate talking on the phone.
I've deduced that loneliness is a huge contributing factory to character. I bet she doesn't know she does it.:agree:
I work with a really great lady who’d give the shirt off her back to help a friend, but damn she talks a lot. She’ll stop you in a hallway or peak in your office for a “quick moment” to tell you about work related stuff that has NOTHING to do with your job. To make matters worse, she repeats herself 3 or 4 times telling you the same sh!t that you just don’t need to know over and over. Most people at work quickly walk the other way or duck around a corner if we hear her coming. Talking with her is often the 8th level of hell.
I just wouldn't answer. Not answering 3 times is as easy as not answering once.I have a relative that calls me constantly. If I do not answer, they will just call 2 or 3 more times. When I take the call, they just want to ramble forever because they're bored. It gets to where I am sitting there just going "yup, uh huh" for a good 30 minutes sometimes. How do you deal with this? Should I just stop taking the calls? Sometimes I have wanted to get to where I just say "I don't have time for this, I have stuff to do." It feels like sometimes this person will try to invite themselves over. I keep saying that I can't eat fast food 2 or 3 times per week, and when I'm not working sometimes I just want to be by myself. Is that being rude? Should I just stop taking these calls?
