Congrats you have friends. Stop talking about themWatch
Has anyone been in a similar situation before? Where they know someone that won't stop talking about certain things.
Tell them straight up lol. That's what I'd do anyways, I'd say something like 'No offence, but I don't really care about what your friend did', but I'd say it as a joke. Depends on what you and your friends are like though lol, my friends wouldn't get offended by that.
I had no desire to hear any more about their friends x/y or z.
Nor listen to much of their attempts at conversation, so avoided them as much as possible and looked for new accomodation.
Then moved on, told them I prefer not to stay in touch and ended all contact.
