i work in an office with quite a few other people, why is it there are some people who never seem to stop chatting about nothing?
One of my collegues has been chatting nonstop for the past 30 mins, and i dont think anybody is even really listening or knows what she is talking about!!
it amuses me that some people have the ability to talk, talk, talk about nothing!!

Have any of you had the same experience?

This thread is the forum equivalent of that conversation...

I havent had that experience for a while. But then again, I havent been in an office for a month and spend all week with a 16 month old, so any conversation would be a bonus.

I have that experience every. Single. Day. Particularly one guy who has an opinion on EVERYTHING. It also doesn't help that he has a voice like a transexual using hormone replacement treatment.

We have one of those where I work. The more right he thinks he is the louder he gets just so everyone can hear how right he is. Talks to you like your somekind of simpleton as well as if you couldn't possibly know anything that he doesn't.  Complete pain in the backside but he is quite fun to wind up at times by just argueing with him for the sake of it.

We got one of them at my debating society. Complete fucking idiot - he's got a punchable face, a voice you would like to shove in an incinerator, and he says exactly what he thinks you want to hear, which is usually intolerant, idiotic, narrow-minded, disgusting, grating trash. Everyone at the society hates him, but they can't get the hint - though at least you can shut him up through basically telling him he's being an idiot (earlier tonight, he mouthed off on the Sci-Fi Club very loudly while they were in earshot, and I pretty much said, "That's inappropriate and mean, don't say that" - he stuttered and then shut up. For five seconds.).

And I'm in the same hotel room as him for the debating tournament I'm going to next weekend.

You're in a debating tournament? Cool! What training do you do for that? And do you have special topics that you concentrate on? And can you chose which side of the argument you represent?

I'm not really one for small talk but when I'm having a boring day I really enjoy it when there's some banter going on in the office. It helps that I have interesting and fun people to work with. I know what you mean though about people who just won't shut up. They usually catch you when you just want to be left alone and they can't take a hint. I think it's because they're bored and lonely, or they're just trying to impress you.

I quite often find those type of things tend to attract those sort of people, no offence to anyone, I'm sure there are many who attend who are very pristine debaters!

I have a friend who chooses to quote films every 20 minutes or so. And when I say, quote, I mean a 15-minute piece of dialogue. Most recently it's the Jamie i-pod rant from 'The Thick of It'. Now I've seen that a good couple of hundred times, I love it, it's deliciously funny and I know it word for word so why should I want to listen to it repeated to me every day, at least six times, in a horrific attempt at a Scottish accent that would make Matthew throw up into his cereal?

I'm getting a Rocky style training montage of Pigeon arguing with people whilst running up steps, debating with  sides of beef etc...

The tourney's called 'Thropy' (so named because of the spelling mistake on the main cup), and it's a New Zealand university novice debating tourney held over one weekend in either Hamilton or Palmy (it's in Palmy this year, which is my home town, so that's awesome). It's debated on the Australs style, I believe, which is the following -
  • You and the opposing team, each made up of three speakers, get given three moots and your side - affirmative or negative - and must choose between the moots.
  • After that, you get either 15 minutes or half an hour of prep time - I can't remember which.
  • Then you debate, six-eight minute debates, followed by two two-minute leader's replies.
We have four rounds of that, then a semi, then a final. My uni usually dominates. We just train for it by doing practice debates, like I had tonight.

And Goodfella, you would think that, but my debating society's filled up with generally excellent people, more interested in drinking and having a good time than arguing. Of course, that doesn't mean we don't have some great arguments at the bar.

If you get loads of you together at one time is it called a massdebate and are the members of that massdebate called massdebaters?

At work, after the first 5 minutes. In a social situation it shouldn't, if it does- get yourself some new friends!

Didn't they call you kids Master back when you went to school in the 1920s? I'm sure that would've been hilarious for all but him.

It could be a lot of things, they could have self-esteem issues, they could be on speed, they could just be nervous, they could just like to talk or the most common at my work: VERBAL DIARRHEA!

I see the same thing happening on these forums all the time, certainly more in the last couple of months. One line responses, followed by another, then another, then another.....

Ends up looking like a teenage chat room. Each to their own I suppose!
