How to deal with Mr./Ms. Loquacious

In regard with my first post, The chatterbox, a person who never take breaks in between spoken words like a machine gun firing.
This post carries a few ways to deal with a talkative friend.

  • Go to places where your friend's voice is incompatible with the background and surroundings. Example loud and noisy places
  • Politely excuse yourself from the conversation by giving in rational excuses
  • Divert your friend's attention.
  • Honesty the best policy

Note* I personally have tried the fourth point in a very comforting and gentle way however it resulted with my friend feeling offended and not much has changed after the confrontation.
