I'm not good with small talk

I have friends and can hold a conversation, but I am always at a loss for words when it comes to small talk, like with people at the store, co-workers, someone I haven't seen in a while, or when I meet new people.... What should I say?????

  • Oh gosh! I wish I had an answer, but I'm horrible at small talk. I'm a very, very chatty person when I know a person or feel comfortable with someone, but until them, I am lost. Unfortunately, I come across as rude, but I'm not, I just don't know what to say!!

    I'm sorry I don't have advice, but I do have sympathy in spades!

  • Nothing. I wish we didn't have to small talk with cashiers, etc. .. I'd rather just get my stuff and go on with my life. I just say nothing. They catch on after a minute or so.
