Do you know people who have to be “on” all the time? You know the types. The people who can’t pass up a chance to tell dumb jokes or a rambling story that goes nowhere or worse, they break out into song every time something comes on the radio/TV. I get that some people are natural-born entertainers and that their default position is doing whatever they can to get a laugh or attention, but there are others who are not talented — those are the ones I’m talking about. The ones who if, American Idol were still holding auditions, would be at the beginning of the show with William Hung et al.
I don’t want to sound like a boring stick in the mud, but it gets tiring being around people who don’t know when to turn it off. Sometimes I don’t want dumb jokes or rambling stories or unsolicited karaoke, even from my closest friends.
