What I really wanted to tell someone today, but couldn't
How is it that people who talk way, way, WAY too much - and are older than the age of 12 - don't realize it?
Hasn't anyone told them before?
I had to (politely) interrupt a volunteer at work today who was telling me (as she usually does) an exorbitantly long story that was totally unrelated to work.
She promptly had a meltdown and cried and said I was being mean.
I took her aside and then she apologized and said she was just anxious about a medical procedure she was having tomorrow.
Then, when I left for lunch, she proceeded to retell the entire story to another volunteer.
What am I missing?
