Do any of the other Guys here have to pretend to be interested in wedding dresses when their female colleagues break out the photographs on a night shift...?

Trains, length, shoes, sparkly necklaces, bustles, pastel shades...man, it's pretty, but please stop showing me!

LOL.

I have no interest either.

I suppose the ladies similarly could care less when the police officer escorting a patient and I get into the strengths/weaknesses of the particular side arm he's carrying, start swapping pictures and hunting tales etc. :D

cheers,

And, I'm female. LOL!!

I (a woman) liked Ray's response. We all have coworkers discuss things in the break room that are of little interest to us personally. Personally, I couldn't care less about "American Idol," scrap booking, or most people's kids. But it is important that we maintain congenial relationships with our coworkers and a friendly work environment. After all, we spend many many hours with these people.

So I smile and nod and ask a few appropriate questions even if I am not all that into the topic. They do the same for me when I want to talk about things they don't care about.

That's how civilization survives.

It's not just the guys who aren't interested. Give me motorcycles anyday, I'd rather talk BHP and upside down forks than wedding dresses (baby talk gets me dozing off too) :D I usually excuse myself and go tidy the treatment room

Count me as a girl that feigns interest in wedding-dress talk. :)

Amen to that brother! Much rather be talking of sports sometimes than looking at wedding pics/baby pics. But, its all good!
