Coworkers Who Are Always Lingering Around
Bob pulls up a chair, gets comfortable and says: "Hi.Great to see you. How are you?"
You reply: "Hey Bob. Im great. Good to see you as well. Im pretty busy right now so Whats up? How can I help you?"
Bob says: "Im great." then Bob continues to ignore the fact that you said that you're busy and gets even more comfortable in his seat and starts to talk about the weather, his kids, his lunch, his boss, your boss, his weekend, his next vacation, his last vacation, the stock market, sport teams and every and any other thing that has nothing to do with what your have to accomplish. At the momemt you could give a hot damn about anything that Bob is going on and on about. He's magically turned you into his sounding board and psychiatrist.
