Since a young age I’ve noticed a particular conversation pattern where a person doesn’t care who they are talking to — they just want to keep talking. Have you ever been to a party, and been talking to someone who is boring you but that person is not picking up on the cues that you aren’t interested in their conversation? Well, sometimes with those folks if you just walk away from their monologue, they may, without missing a word, continue their boring soliloquy by turning to the person next to them (who isn’t really listening either).
I have no time for such conversations. You actually find these folks on blog comment threads at times. Have you experience these monologue juggernauts?
