    How do you tell someone you do not want to hear their OLD stories about their life? How do you say you dont care!

    Most people like to talk about themselves. A GOOD FRIEND will take the time to listen no matter HOW BORING it might be.

    A good friend wouldn't bore his friend with boring stories.

    The "friends" that bug me are the ones that talk about themselves constantly, then act bored when you start to talk about something in your life. I F**KING HATE THAT.
    a big "yawn' always worked for me.. no words needed
    I don't care about your old stories about your life.
    You could try plugging your ears with your fingers and start humming. Maybe they will get the point.
    I have found that so often there is much to be learned from the old stories of what people have experienced. Maybe you could ask them what they learned from that experience or try to find something in the story that is applicable and talk about that rahter than the actual story and it may be less boring that way! Getting involved helps aleviate (sp?) the yawns!!
