Sometimes, you end up talking to someone who really isnâ€™t that pleasant or interesting. I once got trapped in an endless conversation about uses for old dryer sheets (I wish I was kidding). When youâ€™re struggling for more conversation and need a reprieve, be kind, but assertive.

Be kind, but assertive. I like that.
