Gob Stoppers Needed


Short of stuffing a sock in the lady’s mouth, how do you stop a conversation that annoys everybody but the talkers? The other day I showed up for an appointment but the person ahead of me in line was talking to the receptionist. She wouldn’t stop her juicy gossip and everything funny that needed to be laughed about, long and loud. I simply said, “Ahem, can I please sign in?” I got a dirty look for interrupting. Everybody behind me, though, gave a standing ovation as Chatty Cathy finally stepped aside. Please save your chat for coffee break time, not on my time.
