Why do people bore me so much? Never people I choose to associate with, but the ones you just happen across. Chit chat to the check out chick, conversation to someone in the lift, interaction with waiters, people at work, customers. I am wasting good thinking time talking to you. Go away.
But from these painful contacts with people come friends, people you respect, people you read.........I dunno. You would think at my age, I would have worked this all out.
