Anyone who knows me knows that apart from my friends (then I’m exceptionally vocal) I’m not one for engaging people I don’t know in conversation. I NEVER talk on planes, trains or buses. It’s quite easy for me to do the 24 hour flight to the UK without uttering a word (other than to the Air Steward when they ask what I want to eat!!). I sit in my seat, get out my book and that’s it. And I won’t even talk much to whoever I’m travelling with. I’m happy in my own little travelling world!
Sooooooooooooooooo, how come I work in our motel and have to talk and be nice to people ALL THE TIME??????? It’s crazy. It drives me crazy……
I’ve got better at it over the years, my conversation now stretches beyond the weather, but seriously I’d much rather be left alone.
I don’t like visitors either………. actually I’m ok with visitors during the day, which is when I’m at my most social (allegedly). But the evening, nah!!!! I’m happy to sit and watch my TV prog, or read, or do my jigsaw….
My partner, however, could talk for England…. non-stop…….. I don’t know how he does it. Luckily I’ve learnt the art of nodding in the right places (he usually doesn’t notice). And of my children, it looks like my daughter takes after me (we can sit in the car in silence for hours) and my son… just like his dad!!!
So, what about you…. are you a talker?
