Do you ever have one of those days? Just last week, I had a situation with honey bees. I had to call in several "experts". I discussed the situation dozens of times that day, repeating it for anyone who wanted to know what was happening. Later that day, after the details of the event had been thoroughly gone over and over, I thought about posting the story here and found that........ shocking to me...... I was all talked out about it! I typed and typed, but found that I was literally boring myself! LOL The same thing happened the next day at work. I had missed work because of this beehive situation and people were asking questions. I found that I was giving out the bare minimum of facts. Just ALL TALKED OUT! Does this ever happen to you? It's not very common for me. I'm a talker by nature. How about you? Can you "wear out" too? Talk to me! haha

Oh yeah. I get super tired of answering the same questions with the same information. I especially hate it when people get me mixed up with my sister and ask me questions that they would have asked her. It seems for three years people were constantly asking me when I was going back to school in California. "I've never been to California, my sister was in California and she graduated so she's not going back to school there..." and I would relate the whole story for awhile. Eventually I would just glare at them and say, "I've never been to California." and then they could wonder what they'd said that had upset me so much. lol

Often I wish I had recorded the conversation the first time I had it so that I could just hit replay. This seems to happen especially when I am explaining something to several people. Hang in there, you are not alone.

There have been times where I never wanted to say another word to anyone for the rest of my life. Or at least the rest of my day. And most certainly not on the telephone. There have been times where to resolve a simple issue, I have been put through what I call, telephone limbo, where each person gives me a number that I should call and eventually I cycle back around to the beginning. And then there are just days where I just feel like, I have said enough, I don't need to say anymore. It can really be tiring at times, when all I want some solitude and some peace. But something like that is far easier said than done. Still I have been all talked out at time. Many times I have been beaten down by answering one question too many or asking one person too many about a situation.

I've similar situation at work. This office assistant girl has been having issues with her printer at work for quite some time. So she's been calling Hp customer service for help but seems that the problems just keep going on and on and on... She's quite a persistent girl, and I can hear her conversation with Hp from my desk. Well, she must have called them like every other day for the past month or so. I, myself, started to get tired of keep hearing her trying to argue her way to make the printer work. Even worse, I think each time she called Hp, different customer service personnel answered her queries, so she had to repeat the WHOLE broken printer story over and over again in which I cannot escape from hearing it each time. I believe Hp started to get tired of her calls too since last I heard they are sending her a brand new printer to replace the one she's been trying desperately to get fixed over the phone... I hope the new printer will work perfectly; I don't know if I can take anymore of "Hi, my name is Maria and I have a broken printer..."
