My mistake

Am sitting in Starbucks. Made the huge mistake of complimenting an older gentleman on his iPad.

“Hey, I bet you love that,” I said.

This is what followed …

“Blahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblah

blahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahl

blahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblah

lblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahl

blahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblah

blahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblah

blahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblah.”

Ten minutes later, I’m back.

  1. There’s a lovely woman in my office whose desk I can no longer walk by because it will be a minimum 10 minute conversation. People need to learn that small talk is called small for a reason.

  2. If you see me in a public establishment, please don’t strike up a conversation with me…I’m the old guy who just wants to be left alone in peace.
