What would you do if someone talks of no interest to you and they just keep going on and on and dont stop and you get bored. Do you tell them to shut up or just listen to them?

I will kick him , bash him to bleed , and leave him to die and all this I will think all this while i will patiently hear what he is saying :) Yes i cant do what i have said so i have the only option of waiting for his mercy and when can i leave.

It really does depend on who it is. If it a member of my family or a friend I care for deeply then I say nothing but if it is a stranger of who I have no regard then I just say what I feel. It may be a bit hurtful but to be honest I care for myself more than them and don't see why I should put myself out for a strangers feelings.

yes strangers are none of our business to attend to.. we dont know them so we really dont care about their feelings ...

I have gone through this so many times. If the person is driving the car I am in. I just say uh huh all the way to our destination. I can't imagine pissing someone off who is driving me around. If the person is in a public place mingling. I will find a reason to walk away from them. If we are in the same house and I can't take it. I'll just go clean something like a closet or the oven. Anything to get away. I will not hurt the person's feeling out right. I can understand people needing to talk. I also know I have no patience for it at times.

Depends on the situation. If it's someone I am chatting with online, I excuse myself and say that I am working. If it's IRL, I try to politely get out of the conversation. It would have to be a pretty bad situation for me to tell anyone to shut up though.

well technically it depends on the nature of the person who is suffering the rubbish talk.if the guy is talking about a way way way boring topic then i make an excuse and get out of there.
