This is such a difficult one for me.
An acquaintance rang today she must have been on the phone for over a hour talking about herself.
She doesn't understand the art of conversation at all and just goes on and on jumping from one subject to another and going back years and years and providing detail after detail.
I was expecting a phone call from my friend so had to explain this to her and the call ended.
However she messaged me and said she would like to have a run out in the car and bring something for me at the same time. This was very kind of her and would save me time going to hers however.
When she arrived she just continued from the phone call this morning and I never thought she would leave.
I just had to say I'm sorry but I must get on I have so much to do, which was totally true.
I do feel sorry for this lady she lives alone her husband died last year so is clearly very lonely. When I have managed to get the odd word in I do make suggestions for her to join clubs, things of interest she might like to do but it falls on deaf ears.
I have never come across anyone quite like this and do so hate to be rude.
Is there an answer.
