    In the UK nobody talks or listens, as all they do is moan to strangers and they tell them to fuck off.

    There was a sort of joke that londoners knew more about what was going on in Eastenders than with the neighbours.

    This is my wife, she's the social butterfly in this relationship.
    I can do social interaction up to a limit, it's just tiring, so I will take the opportunity of a French exit wherever there's the chance.

    It really depends upon the stranger. Sometimes you want to bail and other times you're in the company of someone capable of interesting/friendly conversation.

    Even my best friends for over 30 years have learn't that I'll try and GTFO after spending any extended length of time with them. It's a failing I know, but if I reach my limit then I'm gone.

    Yes, I am a southerner.
