Both of my FSILs are this way. They ALWAYS want to talk about the SAME things, over and over again, and they won’t let you talk about anything else. It’s like they have no device in their brains that says, “Nobody wants to hear about my job the whole time they’re around me.”
One of my FSILs is a manager at Waffle House. If she’s around and I’m talking to FMIL about something, she’ll interrupt me flat out with, “I can’t believe I’ve gotta work until 2 tomorrow morning. We have been so understaffed.” Then, she’ll just go on and on and on about her job. If the conversation finally dies down and somebody brings up something else, she will interrupt them AGAIN to talk about whatever she’s on a kick about! She will not drop it. Even if someone interrupts her in a clear attempt to get her to shut up, she’ll just keep talking. It’s not just her job though, it’s anything and everything about HER life. If she’s not talking about her job, it’s her boyfriend issues, if not that, then it’s her house search. Everytime she comes over it is one topic and one topic only. Most of the time it’s Waffle House .
My other FSIL normally talks about the two guys she’s seeing right now. I’ll be talking to FMIL about something totally unrelated to her and she’ll come in and interrupt me, just like her mannerless sister. I could be talking about chicken and she’ll come in and say, “Omg, (boyfriend 1) is coming over tonight, what am I gonna do with these flowers from (boyfriend 2)?” Everything’s gotta be a big, dramatic, production with her. A normal person wouldn’t be dating two people, or they’d throw the flowers away/hide them, but she’s asking for them to find out about each other. Anyway, nobody wants to hear about this crap anymore! She spends hours talking about this situation, then, if you try to talk about something else, she brings it up again out of nowhere. Last week FMIL and I were talking about getting Japanese straightening treatments on our hair and FSIL, out of nowhere, said, “And he’s always trying to mess with my nose!” FMIL and I were like, huh? Nowhere in our conversation was anything about FSILs boyfriends. She just wanted one of us to say, “Who?” so she could interrupt our conversation with a monologue about her complicated situation of having two boyfriends.
I wonder if anyone else knows people like this? Am I the only one? I have a cousin who is also the same way. When something is on her mind, she will not shut up about it. She talks about it and talks about it and you just wanna scream!
