People I wish did not talk !

There are some occupations that your communication skills are the bread winner skills, in other words you need to talk your ass off to get paid, like people in sales. But on the other hand there are jobs, that people who are holding them interact with people directly, but should keep the blabber at a minimum, though some are very famous for talking too much like hair dressers.

The list is my total whish list, of the people I wish will not talk while they are doing their job, so here it goes :

1- Hair Dressers: these are infamous for talking a lot, some people enjoy the chit chat with their hair dressers, but I whish they would not! what is wrong with you going my hair without forcing me into a stupid conversation.

2- Massagers and skin care experts: I was having a facial that includes a facial massage and the lady kept talking to me this is so annoying, I wished she would have left me to enjoy the massage without having to do small talk. She is my mom's friend and she gives a wonderful facial and I don't think she talks to any one while working but since she knows my mom I had to suffer.

3- Dentists: I think they are told to talk to patients to shift their focus away from what is happening in their mouth, but how do you react to what they are saying ! and the worse part is when they crack a joke while both of his hands and three other tools are in your mouth, not funny!!

4- Waxers: I don't know what they are called but the women who wax our legs (ladies that is), the process is painful enough you don't have to add stupid conversation to the list.

5-Drivers: especially taxi drivers, I don't want to talk to you ! I don't know you and we have nothing in common, why are you talking to me?

I hope you don't get me wrong, I don't see that I am any better than these people, I'm not a snob. But the work they do is either something I want to relax while they are doing or I'm too tense while they are doing, so the conversation is not welcome even if you are my best friend, and or drivers I like to drift in my thoughts between destinations.

Well they should at least try to see if the customer is interested in small talk or not.

The best thing about my hair dresser is that she doesnt talk at all.

The only thing we talk about is "asset elsha3ar" w eza ana ma 2oltelha sho beddy, btebda t2oss la7alha la2nha she already knows ana sho ba7eb :-)

Tamara said...

Mais said...

lol@ this's funny :)

well, guess i'm lucky cause all the people mentioned in your list don't talk to me while doing their job...and i rarely take any taxis since i have a car..except when i go to damascus...even then i keep silent when a silly taxi driver tries to have a conversation, i simply show him that i'm not interested and let him talk to himself..

same goes for hair dressers...thanks god i've been going to the same saloon for more than 10 years now, and all the guys there know me so well, and saro 7afzeen tab3i..ya3ni after the hi, keefek and what would you like to do today? they don't add another word, except the na3eeman at the end and inshallah 3ajabak :D
