Change the topic? Fake a phone call? Pretend to fall asleep?

Just say, "I'm so sorry to cut this short, but I need to--------------" and fill in the blank with something :)

Be honest and say..."can we change the subject because I am about 5 seconds from getting up and just walking away, this convo is too damn boring for me"

This happens to me all the time. I just act interested and hope they shut up soon.

If your on this site, you obviously have kids....Use them as an excuse. Say oh lil joey has to nap or oh I think baby pooped, Or uh oh sally has a fever we have to run.

I use my kids to get out of all kinds of things.
