but to your point, what would you rather talk about? your fucking work week? trust me, nobody wants to hear that shit either.
my own pet peeve is motherfuckers who talk about the weekend at work, then turn around and talk about their workweek at a party! at least your irritating friends are where they are, which is more than i can say about most people who always seem to be wherever they aren't.
can you dig it?
I rarely discuss work outside of the office unless I'm asked. During dinner I like discussing just about anything other than the food. Talking about the food is fine but not when it becomes the only topic of discussion. It's like trying to watch a movie with someone who comments on everything that happens.

We went out to eat this past weekend. About 3 hours after we left the restaurant we are lying in bed and my wife says "how was your steak?"
