    Sometime we are so lost in our bubble that we forget the world outside. It can be a good thing when we want it that way. Then all of a sudden someone decide to intrude in our privacy. To be polite we put up with it, but doesnt mean we arent annoyed. I especially hate when it happens at work. I'm not in the good mood when i working to begin with. Do you hate it when somebody talks to you when you don't want to? :mad: And what do you do about it?

    It depends on who the person is lol
    It only happens when I'm in a bad mood though and I absolutely hate it. Not so much IF someone talks to me, it's what they say. Usually I just ignore them completely or else I know I'll just lash out..but ignoring is also bad and I feel terrible afterwards but i don't know what else to do.

    for me it depends on the context, sometimes they will ask for the time or directions and I don't mind talking with them..but sometimes I'm in that mood where I dont want to talk to anyone and I normally have my earphones on and what absolutely annoys me is people who will talk to you and expect you to respond when your listening to your music and can't hear them...like they are the only person in your world...sigh...can't you see I have ear phones???

    No.

    I can't expect people to know I'm not in the mood to talk.

    If it's really bad I'll just say that I'm really not in the mood and it's not because of them.

    I'm one of those people that needs a lot of quiet time to "recharge my batteries." If the topic is about an urgent matter I'll just do what I need to do, but if not I make simple statements to set my boundaries.

    Yes, the thing I hate the most about my home is that the neighbours always talk to me. Just yesterday one of them was, um, pretty much harassing me about my cooking.

    I don't mind when people talk to me but I am the social phobia poster boy/man and I usually walk away from the encounter saturated in nervous sweat :blink:.

    i guess it just depends on who they are, what they want, what they have to say, and what i'm doing..

    it's nice to have people talk to you once in a while, though.
