That bangs on about their baby/ a close relatives baby, dont forget them as they need to shut up too. All babies do is drink milk, shit and cry whats so exciting?
when a baby does it, everyone's like 'aaawwwhhh. they're so cute when they're that age'
it's when they talk about it together... comparing nappys...etc... how obscene.
considering this place is a hotbed of riveting subjects
'how're yours julie?'
Don't listen to him
that only ever talk about their last skiing trip, their new houses, the new car, her next ebay purchase, her many ex-husbands and calls and complains to customer service lines in the staffroom... they can go.
and are the kind of people who bang on about not having the MMR jab and fear the slighest bit of grime or dirt might kill their child.
SHE'S DOING A DOUBLE-WHAMMY. SHE'S TALKING ABOUT HER KID'S GRAMMAR SCHOOL!
bring in their baby, I was thoroughly unimpressed all the women came running out and going aww, unsuprisingly most of the men wernt interested but had to pretened to be, I just decided to run away from my office and hide in the mechanics garage till they went away.
i'd imagine I think I would have a heartattack
Childless spinsters who hijack any baby discussion with 'of course I have a dog, I know all about it. Tiddles had me up ALL night with his chest...'
A rarer breed but an infinitely more irritating one.
which has to be worse then babies who at least grow up to talk and other more interesting things.
Luckily we have moved offices and Im no longer near the lady who would give me a 20 min run down of what her puppy did last night every morning.
This was awful but then later on, someone else (who inevitably also had a dog) would ask her all about the little cutie and I'd have to hear it all again.
I love babies
(sorry - true)
in a moany way, like, 'oh, my Albert wouldn't eat his stew last night' *tuts*
talks about her ex-husband. she tells me EVERYTHING. she told me one day how he used to go out, get drunk, stumble in and PISS THE BED.
i was fucking scarred.
But I don't have one so I'm fine right?
they're talking about nappy changing routines.
You wait until they can get up in the middle of a nappy change, or they start doing the crazy-limb thing and you catch a heel in the junk. THAT'S when the fun starts.
Children, eh? I might start a thread about them, cos talking about them is fun
let's just talk about babies here huh?
TBH,M8, I don't mind baby talk. It's just when someone brings the actual baby into work....and everyone starts talking like idiots and give you evils for not taking interest in the child because you want to get on with work.
you mean DiS
and people talking about them does my head in. I can underastand how they find it interesting but why would anyone else, unless they also have a small one?
