Last night, I went out for a beer with my friend and her boyfriend. We went to the local sports bar, and we were hanging out at the bar, talking, when someone taps my shoulder. Yes?
"I just wanted to talk to you." Um..ok...
So, this drunk guy that I had had my back to actually tapped me on the shoulder, interrupting our conversation, just because he wanted to...talk. WTF?? I mean, I'm certainly not the most socially adept person-I'll chat with most anyone, and make random comments to total strangers, but even I know not to interrupt.
Because really, what do you say after that? It's sort of like when someone finds out you speak a different language and they go, "oh, say something in that language!" and follow it with "what did you say?" If you can't understand it, don't ask!
I really felt like saying, "ok, you've talked to me. Happy?" and then gone back to my own conversation but I find it hard to be that mean...what a sucker! But I tried giving him the hint, by keeping my back mostly turned, leaning away when the guy tried to lean in...no luck. I should've known better since he totally interrupted to begin with but he kept on trying to make conversation....the guy even told me how much he earns!! UGH!! Those are not things to bring up. SHEEESH!! What ever happened to normal chit-chat? I think he was pretty drunk because a couple of times he had a hard time getting the words out, but thank God my friends saved me!! We moved to a table.
