How do you deal with non stop talkers?
I can understand if a kid or even a teenager wants to go on and on about “topics” of importance to “them.” I really don’t think that is a bad thing, as it is a way of communication.
But…what if its a co worker who you “have to deal with day in and out?”
From what I read on the internet is to basically give them a blank stare, and do not nod, or go uha, or anything. Just stare blankly. Do you recommend this?
