I recently attended an informal gathering of about a dozen co-workers.
And I talked too much.
I didn't divulge any inappropriate secrets or commit some hideous gaffe (that I know of). I just talked too much.
My theory is that I happen to like every one of the people at this gathering. And I felt relaxed. Too relaxed.
What should I do?
A) Attend the next six such gatherings and not say a word, in the hopes that doing so will even things out.
B) Send an apology email to all who were in attendance.
C) Ask myself, "Do I ALWAYS talk too much?"
D) Don't sweat it, because people probably weren't even listening.
E) Say nothing. Bringing it up at this point would just sound like "And here's even more about me."
F) Learn from it and move on.
