Have you ever been at work talking about a serious subject when out blurts a totally non related random comment that kills the conversation? i get bored during work meetings and have had people staring at me in astonishment as they try to figure out where the statement came from and why i said it. examples are last week we were trying to find a solution to the lack of cover on a shift when i announced "Finland is still spelt with a capital F" others have included "NBC's 1967 phonathon was particularly successful" or "It's particularly chilly in Moscow today" and "Walnut whips are expected to make a comeback this year" Do you have any examples of non related conversation killers?

Don't get made at me for saying this, Boxman, but to me this sounds like a symptom of vitamin B deficiency. You may not be eating enough green leafy vegetables. Focus is still spelled with a capital F, but spelt is a wholesome grain. Try knocking off the white bread and eating whole grains for a while. I really want you to advance in your new position and enjoy your work and be happy.

Sounds like you are a terribly bad boy :)) (albeit a very humorous one) I have accidentally done this because my mind was somewhere else and not the topic at hand. LMAO What I can tell you here in mylot I often feel like a conversation killer. The Discussion will be moving right along, until I come in and put my 2 cents in then it comes to a roaring halt..... My username is the last on the list for months and months.

LOL. I tend to do that occasionally. .and so do my friends. It's mostly done online though. Me and my friends would be in a convo chat on MSN. . .sometimes one of us would be all dark and angsty after something has happened. . .the others comment on it. And someone usually tries to break the gloomy, serious mood with a completely random comment. I can't possibly name all the times this have happened to me and my friends online haha.

myself i don't think in a work related meeting was the best place to say things out of order. as someone who is in charge at work i go though allot of thinking time on what to say and how to say things to get a point across. it is hard enough trying to control a meeting with out someone making it harder. meeting are boring , but let it be boring and be respectful as much as u can

You are going to be put on leave for stress related indifference and told to see a Psychiatrist before you are able to return. With any luck, you will be able to spend more time on Mylot making us laugh.
