Okay Bud, Why Don’t You Calm Down and Stop Talking for a While?

Posted by on August 8, 2013 in Uncategorized

I don’t know many chess players, but from what I do know about them, I at least know enough that if I were ever to interview one, I’d definitely only ask yes or no questions. Unfortunately, this poor lady doing the interview above asked an open-ended question and was forced to listen to the young lad spout off for nearly two minutes – in great, super-specific chess lingo – details about the game that we literally cannot understand, fathom or have any idea what in the world he’s even talking about.

The moral of this story kids, of course, is to always be careful about asking open ended questions to people you don’t really want to talk to. Either that, or people who you aren’t really interested in anything that they have to say. Some may call this mean but hey – do you think they want to watch you roll your eyes and check your watch 18 times while they’re trying to talk to you, do you? You… big meanie… you!
