Being an Aries, I am quite an impatience lady. Sorry, maybe not all Aries, just me. There are some people that gets to my nerves when ever they talk to me. Not all conversation are two ways. Some expect you to only listen and not to say a word and there are those who would hang around waiting patiently for you to talk.
Have you ever talk to those who talk very very sloooooooooooooooowly? There was this guy whom I know, talks like that. When ever he try telling jokes, the jokes become stale. At every 2 to 3 words, he would pause for at least 3 seconds. Could you imagine how long it took him to complete a full sentences, let alone sharing the whole joke. Every time when he says "Do you know (pause 3 seconds) that day (pause again) ......" I start counting 10 backwards to keep my cool in order to stay calm and listen to him finish the whole story. Nope, he is not an old man, he has been like that since very young.
Then there was this lady friend of mine, who rarely says more than 5 words in a sentences. Mostly 1 word answer and no questions. I bump into her at the mall one day. After so long since I saw her, I went up to her and say hi. After I said "Hi", she said the same and just stand there waiting for me to say something else. Then I ask "How's your 2 children? Must have grown a lot since I last saw them?" Her reply was just "Fine" and continue to stand where she were and waited again. Oh my, luckily for me not all my friends are like her. Wonder what she gets for her essay in school. The best part was, she works a s a customer service, sometime via phone sometime face to face with customers.
The one that I really could not stand are those who repeat what I say, word by word. Like for example, I would say "Hey, looks like it is going to rain", her reply was "Yeah, looks like it is going to rain." Then I said "it has been a while since it rained. " her reply " Yeah, it has been a while since it rain." Oh boy! so robotic. She only added 1 word. Can't she form sentences herself? Doesn't she have any opinion of her own?
There was this lady, we used to have lunch together sometime when I was on a 9 to 5 job. When ever she starts talking, everyone on the table should not talk or she would sssshh you. We were only allow to talk after she is finish.
Guess this is what makes life so interesting. I was born a chatter-box and do need a good conversation and not like those above. Well, it is not their fault that I was born to be such an impatience listener. Thanks for reading and hope you could let me know what sort of conversation do you prefer, one way or both ways.
