Well, I am an introvert person and it becomes quite difficult for me to handle long conversations and my mind starts to wander here and there when I converse for a long time. I try to get along with other people so that I feel more confident while I am talking.
A fortnight ago, I met with my old mate, John. We are very good friends from college days. John is a very talkative person and can talk endlessly on any topic. When I met him two weeks ago, we went to a fast-food restaurant. There, we ordered some snacks and started talking about our day to day life and family matters.
Soon, he shared his vision with me to start a business. I was excited to hear his idea and he shared some interesting and innovative thoughts. Then, he told me that he would like to invest millions in his venture and take a loan from the bank. I tried to explain the situation to him that he should start his business with a minimal amount so that he ca bear losses in the worst-case scenario. He was talking about unrealistic things which made the whole conversation dull and useless.
I tried to change the conversation topic but he was not in a mood to change this topic of conversation. I hurriedly finished my meal and told him a lie that I had urgent work at home so I had to leave. To be honest, it was just a waste of time for me.
Here is the list of the latest cue cards which are released every four months.
