The minute someone starts saying ''Ooh, yes i took the A63 and then it was diverted and then the traffic built up about half way etc'' I just turn off. Same with diet talk. I either want a proper in depth natter or a proper laugh. Am getting crap with small talk and can't be arsed smile

I do the same when somebody starts telling me their dream.

whippinpiccadilly Tue 20-Aug-13 00:17:44

And I can't focus on any conversation about starsigns

I'm sure the people you talk to would love you to be honest. Just tell them they are boring you and that you demand more from the people you talk to. Perhaps you could give them score cards for whether they provide you with a proper laugh or not.

My DP could bore for England on the best route to anywhere.

"What I'm having for dinner" conversations bore me to tears - unless you're trying something incredibly interesting I don't care if you're having a bit of garlic bread and pizza sssshhhhhhh

Am fully aware it's me. Seems to be as i'm getting older I don't seem to have the attention span.

Housework , I don't care about how often you change your sheets or Hoover your living room.

sugarplumpfairy Tue 20-Aug-13 00:33:14

The price of houses....

AnyFucker Tue 20-Aug-13 00:36:19

did someone mention dreams ?

people yapping on about their dreams gives me the RAGE

FB the airport, on the plane, arrived safely, having a beer, at the beach, in the pool


AnyFucker Tue 20-Aug-13 00:37:25

how shit their partner is at housework/childcare/ being a fucking man


sugarplumpfairy Tue 20-Aug-13 00:39:11

Yes to all! I actually wonder what I like to talk about grin

NoComet Tue 20-Aug-13 00:41:26

Oh god yes Usual Housework and nitpicking about the quality of the school cleaning.

We have two mums who are obsessed with talking about house work and finding grubby corners of the school hall,

Anyfucker being a fucking man I resemble that remark.

Anyway, OP, I think it's a sign of wisdom, the older you get the less you can be arsed to listen to someone else's crap mind you your own crap is still important

AnyFucker Tue 20-Aug-13 00:45:59

lummox, if I was a man I would too

which is precisely my point

if you have a man living in your house who doesn't pull his weight, stop moaning to me about it smile

I dont mind small talk these days. Most of my circle of friends are artists, writers, musicians and intellectuals, I am none of these things. They are soooo intense. Its fine most of the time you can kind of tune in and out, but sometimes you just want to gossip about why on earth No 23 have priced their house so high when No 19 has been on for £20k less for 6 months and had no interest, after all, its not like they even have a decent sized garden is it.......?

Luckily my 2 best friends are also part of this group and while we can all hold our own when the intellectuals get going, they also like to be as vacuous and gossipy as me when we are on our own!

'FB the airport, on the plane, arrived safely, having a beer, at the beach, in the pool'. Oh yes, I agree, AF. I know a couple who posted on FB many times a day whilst on their honeymoon. Complete with constant check-ins, chatter about which airport they were in, every cocktail that they had. Why? You are on your honeymoon. Why the fuck aren't you drinking mojitos and having lots of sex. Step away from FB and drink mojitos and have loads and loads of sex.

Anyfucker Too true mess blighter that I am but also applicable to peoples teens, ffs just let them live in their filth if they don't clean up after themselves on keep them housebound/remove phone until they do.

Where's our summer?
Was that our summer?
We've had a long hard winter.
It's trying to rain.
Well it might rain later, it's a lovely day right now, but it looks like rain now.
Change in the weather.
Do you like this hot weather. I don't. I hate this hot weather. Can't wait till it gets cooler........ yatter yatter yatter

And my personal StabFest :

"Warm enough for you"?

(Working with the Great General Public, the first words they utter is About The weather. If I answer "Oh, yes it's lovely" or "You can't rely on weather reports" ...I'm being polite.
I don't want a fecking debate about it hmm

'Anyfucker being a fucking man I resemble that remark.' Snigger.

Bogeyface, I was terribly tempted to, but it was DP's brother and his wife, and they are very touchy and humourless, and would have never spoken to us again. Though as it happens, they have stopped speaking to us over some imagined slight anyway, so I ought to have gone for it grin.

Maybe take this as an opportunity to say "BTW, your honeymoon......." and then let rip grin
