MandolinPaul Nothing Worth Opening Here Lately (113* d) RE: Nothing Worth Opening Here Lately 13 Nov 99


Art,

You will probably think I'm an arsehole for saying this...
Get over yourself.

When you're at a party, and the topic of conversation doesn't interest you, do you:
a) Have a hissy fit at the other guests, telling them you hate this line of conversation.

b) Go whine to the host, "Aww come on ... make them stop".

c) Try to gracefully steer the conversation in a direction you're interested in.

OR

d) Quietly leave the others to enjoy themselves.

If your answer is A or B (and I believe it to be both), then repeat after me, "I have behaved like a child."

If your answer is C or D (and I believe it ain't), then you have behaved appropriately.

To summarize: If you don't like the conversation, try to start your own, or get out.

Just my opinion. I hope you don't leave; you quite often have wonderful insight to add to the threads.

Paul
