The Top Ten

1 Awkward Silences

I bet you could all see this coming. When neither of you know what to talk about, and a silence occurs which feels like you are constantly getting stabbed in the heart with worry about what you should be doing and saying. Is this silence bad? Should I randomly mention something to get the flow started again? Will people wonder why the heck I decided to mention the greenness of the grass all of a sudden?

Awkward silences are the worst when it comes to conversation in my opinion. - RaineSage

Especially when some stranger says "Hi! " and nothing else. Why the heck am I responsible for finding a topic for that conversation someone else started? - Kiteretsunu

I seriously hate when I make this, I don't think I can help myself because I'm fully introverted/ silent person. - Delgia2k

ALL THE TIME! This happens every time I chat with someone face-to-face! - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

2 Constant Topic Changes

Wait.. Wait... WHAT? Why are we on a discussion about dinosaurs when two seconds ago we were talking about feeding pets? And now we are talking about the horrible things in the world? What's next, the life of rocks? I can't keep up!

Yes, I know that topic changes are the staple of most good conversations, but it should be monitored so the person on the receiving end doesn't get confused as hell when trying to say something. - RaineSage

Sometimes I have to change the topic when the current topic gets a little too far or awkward - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

At the beginning of the conversation...
Me: "Yeah, Attack on Titan is a great anime.."
At the end of the conversation...
Me: "And that's how Brian Jones died... Wait, what? " - MontyPython

3 Constantly Ranting About the Same Thing

I understand the hypocrisy behind this one. I and many others tend to get carried away with their passions or hates when talking. However I have asked people in the past what their greatest pet peeve is when it comes to conversation, and this is pretty frequently said. It can't be left out.

I don't think anybody would like to spend 3 hours talking about somebody's dinner, though perhaps knowledge of the history of Lasagne would be useful in everyday life. - RaineSage

You idiot, that's the dumbest thing ever!

Annoying yet familiar, much? - PositronWildhawk

A: "Oh yeah, I don't like Sanjay and Craig. It has too many fart jokes! "
B: "Yeah, I agree. Butt jokes in mass quantities are lethal."
A: "And its fart jokes can also get annoying! "
(Insert ten minutes of A ranting on Sanjay and Craig) - Turkeyasylum

Would be great if the ranter get over the same thing he/she rants, is it? - Delgia2k

4 Conversation Hogging

I'm aftaid of stealing a whole conversation. That's why I'm shy for the most part in real life, - Turkeyasylum

5 Useless Shouting

Why are you shouting? I can hear you perfectly fine, you don't need to shout! Look I understand that some people may have hearing ailments and issues, but for people that don't shouting is extremely unnecessary unless you are calling for someone from a while away or taking part in an argument. The people that are sitting on a bench on the other side of the park don't really need to know about that thing you did two days ago. - RaineSage

At my school lunch, it gets very loud but the teachers on duty don't seem to mind. In fact, it gets so loud that you have to shout or repeat what you're saying to the person right next to you. You can't even whisper in somebody's ear without slightly shouting. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

6 Constant Interruptions

My mother always interrupts me in THE MILLISECOND I WANNA TALK!
I'm dead serious, absolute overkill! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

7 "Nevermind...."

Another one that is pretty obvious. What were you going to say? If you don't want me to know then don't get me interested!

This is simply very low on the ten due to the fact that everyone does this at some point. I have before, but pretty much everybody has. - RaineSage

I hate people who do this jut because I can't hear what they're trying to say.

8 Drama Queens

I am talking about the people that get depressed because... Say... They ran their mobile battery down and end up making unrelated people pay for the rest of the day. What role did they have in your phone's loss of battery that you treat them like they physically broke it using their hands? - RaineSage

Drama queens can range from exciting to deserving compassion to being down right hilarious. Why not have a drama queen in your conversations?

My favorite part about 8th grade was the amount of drama that was going on in our class. Drama is great! Drama is almost worth living for!

9 Attention Seeking

Oh hey look at me, I'm awesome! I am certainly far better than everybody else in every way, so everybody should be looking at me and me alone!

These people are probably the same people that post a YouTube comment telling you to like if you like cats, even though it is on an entirely unrelated video about the history behind ears... - RaineSage

Friend : "Hey everyone look at my drawing! It's awesome isn't it? It's anime style! It's the best. Look at it! Look at it! Cool eh? Wanna see my other drawing? "
Me : "Shut up and I don't care about your drawing" - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

10 Pointless Acronyms

There isn't a point in actually saying "lol" in a conversation. Just laugh instead of saying it! - Minecraftcrazy530

An acronym is an acronym only if it actually spells a word. You're talking about abbreviations.

The Contenders

11 Tucked People
12 "How are you?"

Its nice to ask but after that one person or the other will have to continue the conversation. Its kinda awkward when they don't ask you back - PeachyBlast

I absolutely hate being asked that. It happens in almost all convos, and all you can say is "good" and then ask them. Completely pointless.

13 "Whatever..."

My least favourite word in the English language is "whatever." If someone says it, while I try not to punch them in the face, the conversation completely dies or just gets really tense.

14 People Who Speak Quietly
15 "I can't hear you"
