    Removing yourself from unbelievably stupid conversations

    Introduced two of the stupidest motherfuckers I have ever met this afternoon and had to leave after two hours of amoeba level discourse before dousing myself in gasoline and setting myself on fire.

    With any luck I will make money off of it.

    Fucking ridic.

    There's 5441 times you haven't, at least.

    Oh, if it's business, I feel your pain. I'm surrounded by sclerotic stupidity. Pays well, though. Crazy.

    The couple who sat at the next table from me in our lunchroom, (we have a large one with free lunch) talked about working out their entire lunch. It was strange. Good looking pair, somewhat conservative, fit (duh), and I'm still not sure if they ever had sex with each other. Twenty minutes.

    I am glad I don't have to schmooze customers. I would be unemployed if I had to. My tolerance level is at zero.

    I have a couple of lines I use to try and get out of political discussions. I'll say I always vote for whoever has the better commercial, especially if there's a catchy jingle. Or I'll say I always write in Charles Barkley for president so I can hear him say 'turrible' after every natural disaster. The other person usually realizes they're dealing with an idiot and we can go back to talking about classic Full House episodes.

    "I need to leave, I have diarrhea" has removed me from many awkward social situations.

    You could always tell them you're a felon and can't vote. Might even make them step away and end the inane conversation altogether.

    Disturbing the peace and littering.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    Find the idiot's hot button, push it, then walk away like you just pulled the pin on a grenade.

    I'm guessing this was a conversation about HFT?
    I still call it The Jake.

    I use that one when asked to sign petitions at the super market. Some of the looks I get are priceless.

    That is why I like dogs, more than most people.
