There’s a guy I work with that has a nasty habit of talking your ear off. He likes to dominate the discussion, especially when he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. If you give him an opening he will start talking loudly and cluelessly for at least five minutes before you find a way to escape the conversation. You literally have to smile at him and start backing out of the room. A few of my coworkers still ask him follow-up questions so as not to seem rude. To which I say don’t feed the pigeons. Engaging him in conversation only encourages him to keep coming back to start new pointless conversations with other unfortunate victims. I’m not trying to be a dick, I just don’t have the patience to deal with nincompoops. On a side note, this is the first time I’ve used the word nincompoop in any of its forms on my blog.
