It turns out that your neighbor on the plane/bus/train (or the person sitting at the next table at the coffee shop) is a very, very chatty tourist. Do you try to switch seats, go for a non-committal brief small talk, or make this person your new best friend?
Well it all depends on the kind of person and the topic that they are talking about nonstop. If the person seems like a genuine, sincere person who just wants to talk and make friends and is decent I will join in and have a fruitful conversation with the person. If the tourist is a hot blonde/brunette./redhead woman – then it might be me doing the initiating! Try and stop me!
If the person is annoying, boisterous and obnoxious or wants to complain or talk about politics, their religion, deity or book of choice and why it is the best – I will switch seats and or walk off. I won’t bother to offer any explanation and just be on my way as I do not have time for bullshit like that.
Small talk is fine and I not only tolerate it but also indulge in from time to time but there are limits.
