Logorrhea

I'm on the phone with a client and he hasn't said anything meaningful in...and I glance at the phone and the call has been going for 38 minutes and it was just to set up a fucking site visit and now he's repeating himself, repeating himself and why won't you DIE DIE DIE

"Dan, I gotta run. Call on the other line."

AND HE'S STILL TALKING DIE DIE DIE

"Dan, as soon as I have a report ready, I'll email you."

And then he wonders why I'm always "out" when he calls.

There's a story like this in The Arabian Nights about a barber. It is entertaining to read it to someone, as it includes more babble than strictly necessary in such a story, but much more entertaining to have someone else read it to someone. Out of earshot.

Later turned into a novel called "You Know Me, Mohammad."
