Small Talk

I hate making small talk. Especially with people I don't know.

If I'm in the store, I don't want to talk to a stranger.

Please, don't try to start a conversation with me about your cereal of choice.

I really don't care.

The weather is the lamest conversation starter. If you're really wanting to small talk with a stranger, using the weather as a topic is horrible.

Its obvious to the stranger that you're really just interested in hearing your own voice than wanting to get to know the person you're talking to.

Don't waste my time.

I don't know you.

I don't want to.

Otherwise, I'd pick a more interesting subject to start a conversation with.

I'm just sayin.

I'm really, really bad at smalltalk. I just jump into conversation about all kinds of inappropriate things that never have to do with the weather. I like to strike up conversations with phrases like, "Does this look like a nail fungus to you?" and "How come dandruff is always white no matter the color of the skin?"

I'm pretty good with people.

I HATE this. I know people are trying to be friendly but I'm not a friendly person. EEeeee...just leave me alone because I'm a social handicap and I can't make small talk conversations in shoe stores...LOL

Small talk is for small minds. If you have nothing interesting to talk to me about then simply stay quite and let me THINK you are interesting because as soon as you open your mouth...I'm done.
