“It turns out that your neighbor on the plane/bus/train (or the person sitting at the next table at the coffee shop) is a very, very chatty tourist. Do you try to switch seats, go for a non-committal brief small talk, or make this person your new best friend?”
Depends on the person and the conversation. I wouldn’t mind talking to a little old lady or man. A small child. But pretty much anyone in between, I’d probably move. Or look distracted with my phone. Unless the teenager/adult wanted to talk about sports. But then if it’s about any of the teams I don’t like or golf, no thank you. I would even talk about pop culture, but it depends on who or what. I don’t know, I don’t really like talking to strangers. I’m an introvert so I’d rather be left alone (that doesn’t mean that I don’t like talking to people online, I love it). But if you wanna talk about the Boston Bruins, the Los Angeles Kings, the Manchester Monarchs, Doctor Who or Sherlock…I’m your girl.
