I can usually judge when to stop just before it gets to the handbag swinging stage.

Try keeping a small book in your handbag, and when they won't stop talking say " Sorry I need to finish my book as the friend I am meeting wants it back today". It is only a small fib & shouldn't hurt the other persons feelings.
Twink, Why should l have to do all that?

Why aren’t l entitled to go about my way and enjoy my life? Why should l add to the global destruction by taking my car?

Saying, ‘Sorry, l need to finish my book’, sounds very rude to me. I could not do that as l am very polite and l find that quite an ignorant thing to say, actually.

Twink, I think you are being unrealistic! We are talking about over an hour of non stop, one way conversation here, not a fleeting, ‘Hello, lovely weather today but we could do with a bit of rain’!

This comment reminds me of when I was 11 or 12 years old. I had come downstairs to see what Santa had brought me and there resting against the settee was a brand spanking new pushbike. Oh my goodness, I was so, so happy, so much so I was talking to it lol. A memory that's never faded.

Back on topic. I will talk to anyone. You may not like to hear others problems but sometimes it does the bearer of the problem a world of good to get that problem off their chest. You may unwittingly really be helping someone who is suffering real mental anguish with that particular problem.

My Mother always told me, a trouble shared, is a trouble halved.

Exactly, and I don't want half of someone else's trouble.
