MouthOfTheSouth:  That would be very annoying and your vent is justified!

MouthOfTheSouth:  Wow! I’m tired of her just from reading your description. 😉 Luckily she’s only an acquaintance and not someone you have to spend a ton of time with, but still! That’s when you just smile and nod and then vent to your FI (or us!) later, haha.

MouthOfTheSouth:  Wow, she sounds very annoying.  My strategy for dealing with annoying people is usually to just ignore them.

Ugh that gets so annoying!

I have a friend who would always turn the conversation around to herself too! Except it was never related to what we were even talking about! You’d be talking about work or yourself and she’d be like “That reminds me of this one time when my cat threw up everything it ate!” …what? But really, she made every conversation about her pets (5 cats, 3 horses, 3 dogs, 4 ferrets) or herself in some weird way. Or she would want to one up you by bragging about someone she knew…so if I got a new car…then her aunt got a new SUV and SUVs were then better than any “car” anyone else could possibly have..it gets exhausting.

I cut way back on the time I spent with this friend.

omg this is a great post. I know someone like that also. It’s amazing how they can always find a way to turn things back to them!
