God, thank you. I get the idea that many people of my parents' generation (Baby Boomers) and older think it's okay to tell an unsolicited story 5-10 minutes, which I'm usually not interested in and could have told someone in a small fraction of the time. Maybe it's not too much their fault that the younger people who've grown up with so many things to do have adapted to spending more time on those things and less on fluffing up stories and time-consuming small talk. Some friendly awareness should help XD

"You young whippersnappers and your electranomica doodads! Back in my day, we didn't have some guy outside of town make a bunch of fancy pictures and use dern fancy words to tell us what to do! We had to go twelve miles through snow up hill both ways in the middle of a heat wave to get a single glass of water! ...Eh, erm, what was I talking about, sonny?"

Mesmer also coined the term "animal magnetism," due to a much stupider set of circumstances.

(sighs...) Thank you. Now I can prevent my headaches caused by eye rolling. This graphic novella will be spread to the farthest reaches of my contacts. Viva la new story telling era!

Is it just me or did nobody notice that actually it's 'How to tell a story well' ?
