Place Conversation in the Right Place

One lunchtime I overheard someone say ‘How are you?’ Which is fine but that wasn’t the problem. The problem was he said it every 5 seconds and most annoyingly to the same person.

We were eating and he kept saying ‘I have a girlfriend.’ Which is fine but like before said it again and again.

I became annoyed with this so I said, ‘There are five ways of talking. (There is two more but you’ll find them out from your parents when you’re over 18.)
Text Talk, example, “How r u?”
Slang, example, “I’ve got some dosh” Dosh = Money.
Friend talk.
Everyday TalkAt a meal, you need to use number five, in a job interview you need to use number 2 and with your friends you can use any of them.

At a meal you can’t keep switching between different types it’s inappropriate and you may get in trouble.

The rest is up 2 U, so long as they don’t break the above sentences.

The meaning of the title:

Place Conversation – What you usually say.
In the Right Place – The appropriate place to say it.
