Looking Over Your Shoulder
Don't you just hate it when people having a conversation with you are looking over your shoulder to find someone more interesting to talk to? I do. And I think I do it too. It may be a clergy thing. Several after-church conversations grabbed on a Sunday can save you hours of chasing round during the week. But it is rude. If I do it without apologising right at the start that there is somebody I'm trying to catch before they go, please tell me. And if I do what happened to me recently - the person left me alone in a room full of strangers without introducing me to someone else - then have harsh words. I'd deserve them.
