Mindless blather at Zorro’s Cantina

We spend every Saturday morning on the patio at Zorro’s Cantina, just a block or so up from the beach.

The Zorro’s breakfast menu is terrific. (There’s an off-menu omelet named after me, but that’s another story.)

Unfortunately, our usual quiet meal this past weekend was disturbed by a fellow loudly and annoyingly monologuing to a woman he was breakfasting with.

She didn’t say a single word, but he rambled on and on about subject after subject without pause.

When he started blowing shit about humbleness, I hadda roll my eyes.

Anyway, his food finally arrived, and I thought, great, maybe he’ll shut the eff up for a couple of minutes.

Nope. He was a master of blathering mindlessly while at the same time shoveling Eggs Benedict into his piehole.

One of this idjit’s remarks was priceless…

“But no matter what, she doesn’t hear a word I say.”

Well, no kidding, Sherlock.

Take a breath occasionally. Allow the other person to speak. And for crying out loud, LISTEN!

Give the other person a chance to say something and they’re much more likely to hear what you have to say.

That’s called “conversation.”

Don’t monologue.

Have a conversation.

You’ll develop better relationships, both in your personal life and in business.

Just sayin’.

Oh, and my pithy report offers a few dozen more tips that’ll help you build better relationships in business. (And it won’t hurt your personal relationships, either.) You can download it here…
