To Pick A Completely Random Example And TOTALLY Not One From My Day . . . Or Maybe Not

Son, with a new school year coming up, if you can only master one social lesson this year, the lesson I would most like you to master is the one of recognizing the right times to keep your mouth shut, especially when you’re bored or otherwise unimpressed.

For example, if someone is getting ready to introduce you to someone else, and they just will not stop going on about how much you are going to “love” this person, the right thing to do is just to nod and smile.  Unless you know the speaker really well, no matter how tempting it is to go for the joke, do not verbalize your internal monologue of “You keep saying that, but I’m pretty sure we’re going to be ‘just friends’ at best.”
