UGC, You always say the nicest things and you are able to look at both sides of a story.

A lot of people judge and they weren’t even there!

Re: Me, me, me.

I'm happy to let anyone offload to me, providing I've got the time and inclination to listen. No man is an island etc etc

That's nice of you to say so, Artangel. But I can tell you that it doesn't always come naturally. I can be a bit wicked sometimes and say some mean things.

But when I do this kind of thing, I've found that it sometimes comes back on me. For example, I received an email today with the subject line:

"Arriving today: Enemy At The Door"

At first I thought it was Harbal cycling down to my place to sort me out! But then I realised that it was from Amazon letting me know that my box set of the TV series 'Enemy At The Door' starring Alfred Burke, was arriving today! Phew! LOL!

I wouldn't do that; you could be bigger than me for all I know.

But some people (me) find it excruciating to listen to somebody droning on and on about their medical history or their family; particularly when they don't even know them very well. And then, of course, some people are harder than others to listen to.

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’!
I know exactly what you are talking about Art & if it was getting too much you needed to find a way to stop it.
I am also polite but,if somebody was chatting to me constantly I would have no problem saying " Sorry I will have to end our chat because I need to finish this book that I am returning to a friend today. I just haven't had enough time to get the the end!"! If you are sitting next to a person who wont stop talking for an hour you have to find a way of stopping it and I would rather tell a fib than put up with it & then tell people what a nuisance she had been.
I wasn't criticizing you, I was merely offering a suggestion of how you could stop the chat without causing offence!
