I get so mad when in a conversation someone starts talking about themselves and their experiences when I didn't ask and don't care.
I have a secretary that drives me nuts with that habit.
Example: An employee asked me what I did this weekend. I said that I planted some tulips. The secretary went off on a five minute tangent on how "I don't waste time with that, they seldom came up. When my children were little...my mother used to..." etc.
Is it me? Do I need help? Or, how can I deal with this before I explode?
I've ended 2 personal relationships with women who have this trait.
When talking to a third party it was always "I", never "we"...I felt like I was non-existant...so I became so.
