Ahhhh.....but, you can perfect the bobble head pass-off. It's really one smooth move, they never even notice you are gone if you do it right....

Teach me grasshopper!


A seamless pass off... That is a goal worth working toward!

Yes, it's saved me many a time. You'll spend a lot less time sitting in a bathroom, wondering if they are right outside the door....

There is a dude ( and a couple dudettes) at work who never shut up.

The one guy in particular doesn't close his mouth for more than a couple minutes in an 8 hour shift.
Loves to talk about Walmart and Craig's List. I do not start a convo with him unless necessary.
Then if he starts flapping off at the mouth anyway I just tune him out. I may say "oh yeah?" Or "yeah" but no clue as to what the subject matter is.

YAKYAKYAKYAKYAK. BLABLABLA.

There is also this particular female who is faker than fake. It's not her talking that's annoying. It's her (makes me want to stick hot pokers in my eyes and ears) cackling. Cackling in a very loud "OUTDOOR" fake cackle mode.

And she complains when others are loud?!?! She is an attention seeker and so annoying.

When you are at work and around annoying people...it can at times be VERY difficult...because you can't get away from them (sometimes) when you really want to. At various jobs I have had where there are difficult people; what has always kept me going is the thought...well at least I am getting paid for this!

Just out of curiosity do you have kids?

They are the ultimate tune-out device imo. I can pretty much tune out to any person as a result.


If I can't escape the person, then I just smile and nod politely. Sometimes there's no escape, but unfortunately I just can't be rude.

Yes I do have a son...love,love, love him! I don't tune him out. He is very intelligent and interesting and by nature is not a chatter box...so when he does have something to say...I listen.

No...that is not me in my avatar...I choose the photo from an avatar website...because the photo looks very close to what I looked like when I was younger.

I am wondering do you have anything to say about people that drive you up the wall and you don't want to listen to?

Your "shut up..." response is what many of us want to say (at certain times) but we are just too polite!

How do people respond to your "shut up" response....do they still want to be around you?

I was thinking something this morning. I know a lot of people who complain about hearing negative stuff from loved ones and friends. they are same people who blog on negative stuff, watch negative talk shows and news and soap operas.

It is all about the reality I think. If they are face to face and know you they don't want to hear your tragedy, but if it were on Oprah they would be glad that she had you on so they could watch it.

Personally when someone tells me their troubles I feel privileged. They shared a burden and they will feel better. I know they have trust in me or I would only hear the good stuff.

Being Captain of a vessel in charge of 20+ souls, let me impart onto you my stance on this. Words to the effect of:-

"Let me stop you there, no disrespect intended, however I have a lot on my plate at the moment and (I do not have the time / I am not in the right mindset) to give you my full attention at present. Lets talk about this another time when it suits us both".

Or words to that effect.

I cannot afford to make enemies or upset people to the point of their non-compliance however I wont stand idly by and listen to diatribe either so diplomacy is the key - not aggressive but assertive and respectful.

Don't concern yourself in social situations about hurting peoples feelings by telling them these words - in the long run it helps them to understand you and they will be more conscious and respectful of your stance(s) in future conversations. It also means you won't have to put up with those voices in your head telling you blah blah etc.

It has worked very well for me to be truthful always - you are not doing yourself or the recipient any favours by holding back but remember - Diplomacy is the key.

IMHO.

I have a friend who drones on about the evils of evolution and how science is always wrong it is and how he thinks science is supposed to work. Whenever I check his "facts", his facts are always wrong. When I point them out he just repeats the same thing over and over again or just makes up new stuff about why science is wrong on evolution and stuff. He just does not understand how science works and can not understand how much evidence there really is and where all of his objections come from. He is a theists, and always spouts the dogma that all theists spout off about science and evolution. He claims he's just trying to be reasonable and just wants to be shown the evidence, but whenever I show him the evidence and people being critical of people who doesn't understand it, he just calls them a bigot and can't even contemplate that there might be a valid criticism against theists or will just make more bs up about it to justify his emotional investment in being right.

I've pretty much given up on trying to show him he's wrong because he's extremely close minded about these things and thinks that he and only he can be right.

He's also a poor arguer and often makes generalizations and other errors when trying to discuss thing likes science. For instance, he thinks that if one thing is true it has to be true for every single thing no matter what other circumstances there are, not to mention that he thinks if he can't understand it then absolutely nobody else can either.

So my eyes just basically glaze over when he starts in on these things. I really wish he could learn otherwise, but he can't.

It seems to me like the world he has created for himself; (his belief system) works for him and this is how he is able to cope with life.

I have a friend like that too. I have learned just to accept and love her as she is....and she and I have agreed to disagree on some subjects in life.

The title of the thread. That's in Wronfully Accused, starring Leslie Nielsen.
