This afternoon at a monthly social event- I got into conversation with some I had not spoken for a ....Month
Quite interesting stuff we had to impart to each other when...................
Two females ajacent started talking at the top of the shrill voices'
We moved to an quieter corner...When AAAH LES[ A large stout gent[to my companion] and cuts right across us and drags him away.....and I didn't see him for the rest of the meeting
Grrr Now I'll never know what he wanted to tell me or I guess He from me and as we are both getting on a bit may be never again -
I know you are thinking- 'Well he could send you[me] an E-mail'
Well indeed he could- except that, I /we got as far as his problem. He has installed a Kaspersky disk and it has b***ed up his connection. Will he phone or will I? ));-{

There's little or nothing I can contribute to the query...:-)

But if you do want to help, you've pretty well answered your own question.

a) What the point of this is.

b) Why it's in Speakers Corner if it's connected with a software problem.

and the thread title I think I can see that you're complaining about people at a social gathering interrupting your conversation.

Surely that's what happens at social gatherings isn't it?

Not enough cheesy/pineapple sticks, or worse, none at all. Corny, cheap and old fashioned......... but I just love 'em.

Refusing a drink and being told, "Oh, go on. One won't hurt you".

How the hell do they know what one drink will do to me?

Sat down with a cuppa ans calmed down a bit
before coming on here to let off steam.
Fe got really.
No not a computery question
but comment on the rudeness of inconsiderate folk at these events.
They are all of them seniors and shouild know better but there you are.
I shall ticke as 'Steam let off'
Sorry to have bored you all. Get back to computery and problem solving folks.

I'd be more interested in the quality (or otherwise) of the red wine...:-)
