lordy lordy, yesterday I got stuck next to THAT woman at the cocktail party.  There was simply no polite way to leave her.  

She went ON and ON and ON about her financial issues..... then she went ON and ON and ON about her schooling issues (she is going back to school to finish a degree).... then she went ON and ON and ON about what an amazing _______ she is (insert her profession).

Omg... not only did she monopolize the conversation but she complained a ton... and we had just met!!!


ugh!

I hate people like that.  I love a good get to know you conversation but when you can't get a word in edge wise that is usually when I politely excuse myself.

That is when you stop her and say, "I'm, sorry I think my period just started, gotta run!"

Would she have even noticed if you just mumbled "excuse me" and then left?
