Conversation overhead on public transport goes viral for important reason

James Dawson

“Katie, if you don’t mind, I’m going to go into my head for a bit.”

I don’t know about you, but if someone tells me to shut up, my instinctive response is – to put it lightly – fairly negative. It just comes across pretty rude, doesn’t it?

However, an overheard a conversation has shown that you don’t always need to respond as if the request is a slap in the face.

Twitter user Corinne Sullivan’s example shows that sometimes your talking can be an unwanted encroachment on the person you’re talking to. And sometimes we all need a bit of me time, y’know?

The tweet got quite the reaction on social media as people feel that more of us should be giving others headspace.

So there we have it. Next time you want someone to quit their yapping and close their piehole for a goddamn second, just tell them you need to ‘go into your head for a bit’ – apparently it works a treat.
