I think we’ve all had that awkward friend that doesn’t really get it and doesn’t know when they’re bothering people. That will, when you’re talking to the girl of your dreams, will talk about hentai and tentacle arpe. Or maybe you’ve had a friend that just ALWAYS talked over people. Whatever the case.
I have a pretty cool friend, that just keeps talking and talking. The things he talks about aren’t weird or offensive… It’s just he keeps talking over people and changing the subject. (He even changes the subject from the point he’s trying to make when he gets caught up in his own talk fest.) He often tries to make jokes that people don’t really laugh at.
When we’re working together, he talks so much, not letting anyone else get a word in and the task that could be done in 1 hour, takes up around 3-4 hrs time. Not the worst problem in the world, but this final project is what will decide if I can graduate college or not. What is the best method of telling a dear friend… to stfu? Or to at least tone it down, without seeming like a dick?
