Example One

Me: “I think I’m a rather sloppy dresser, especially on weekends.”

X: “Well, you said it yourself, not me.”

Example Two

Me: “When I saw Stanley going out with Chloé, I felt a little jealous.”

X: “Yeah? I was wondering when that would come up.”

Example Three

Me: “I think my dad can be a dirty old man.”

X: “I thought of it too, but I didn’t want to say it.”

Example Four

Me: “I’m phoning to remind you of our appointment.”

X: “I was about to phone you to remind you of the same thing.”

Verdict: X is a poor conversationalist, a bigtime bullshitter, a devious bastard, and a most boring person.

I hope you don’t talk like X.
