Do you ever run into people (metaphorically) in real life as well as online and think to yourself, 

"Would you please shut up?  There is no one anywhere who cares anything about what you're saying."

No?  Just me, then?  Okay.

Duct tape is an excellent idea.
Kate: Rest assured no one gives amugglechump on July 5th, 2007 01:54 pm (UTC)
Yes, fairly frequently. I temper that by worrying that people are often thinking the same thing about me.

Nah, we're interesting, and not annoying at all. There's a difference.
Katemugglechump on July 5th, 2007 02:25 pm (UTC)
Ok, I've got to go with you on that one. We're a fascinating bunch.

Me, too! *hugs the psychic twin*

Hurrah for insecurity!

I just started working with a person like this. After we closed on my first shift working with them they talked for the straight hour that it took us to get everything done. It made me want to take pens and jam them into my eyes.
Carrie Leigh: Monica see?carrie_leigh on July 5th, 2007 06:02 pm (UTC)
See, now, that's just not conducive to a friendly working atmosphere.

The pens would be better served in their eyes.

What? Are you still talking? :P

You're a funny girl...

I actually feel that way a lot. I suspect I tend to look totally glazed over much of the time, from letting the uninteresting chatter wash over me. But really, I would rather have people think I am a little out of it than think that I am a bore. But some people just want to hear themselves talk. *Sigh*
Carrie Leigh: Dr. coxcarrie_leigh on July 5th, 2007 06:04 pm (UTC)
What's that quote? I'd rather be silent and have people think I'm boring than open my mouth and confirm it? Yeah, I'm from that school of thought.
Embellishedembe11ished on July 5th, 2007 07:19 pm (UTC)
I'm not familiar with that specific quote, but it sounds right on. My general philosophy is, "If you don't have anything to say, don't say it." Unfortunately, not everyone agrees.
Numbaby: amen!numbaby on July 5th, 2007 04:27 pm (UTC)
I tend to hate people in general, so I think that about covers it.
Carrie Leigh: Evil will triumphcarrie_leigh on July 5th, 2007 06:05 pm (UTC)
I love you much, my misanthropic friend.
kristibiscikristibisci on July 5th, 2007 04:54 pm (UTC)
Haha, yes. But I'm pretty sure I'm one of those people myself!
Carrie Leigh: Dr. coxcarrie_leigh on July 5th, 2007 06:07 pm (UTC)
No, not us. I'm talking about other people.
kristibiscikristibisci on July 6th, 2007 12:53 pm (UTC)
Good! We could never be dull, anyway. ;) I usually glaze over when those other people start talking. Then they'll ask me something and I'll "snap awake". It's quite jarring.
Lyndsie Fenele: Voldylyndsiefenele on July 5th, 2007 04:57 pm (UTC)
All the time.

No seriously, almost every day.
Carrie Leigh: who gives a crap?carrie_leigh on July 5th, 2007 06:10 pm (UTC)
Thankfully, it doesn't happen to me every day, or I'd be perpetually cranky.

No one likes Persephone unchained.

Though I'm sure that people feel the same way about me too! ;)

I find it worse that I have to hide my status on Trillian every once and a while when I see that they're on. I'm horrible aren't I?

But everyone that will see this... IT'S NOT YOU! I promise! ;)
Carrie Leigh: Respect  - art by Makanicarrie_leigh on July 5th, 2007 08:46 pm (UTC)
Oooh. I do that. Or I just leave and come back when they aren't there. I shouldn't allow myself to be bullied on the internet, should I?
Jandy the Gnome Whisperer: Draco - Treejandjsalmon on July 5th, 2007 10:46 pm (UTC)
No you shouldn't. Neither should I. Luckily there are more wonderful people, like you and Jess and Colleen out there that I DON'T want to avoid! ;)
sue_bridehead on July 5th, 2007 10:07 pm (UTC)
Yeah. Just - yeah. :-/
Kattheoriginalkat on July 11th, 2007 04:55 am (UTC)
I do on occasion run into these people; however, I'm more often than not one of these people. That's why I try not to talk to anyone...ever.
