It's getting difficult to be an introvert anymore

My fucking house keeps attracting roomie's whether I like it or not.
And my neighbors keep stopping by out of the blue, whether I like it or not.
Look... I may be sitting in my open garage, smoking my cigs and drinking my lemonade vodka and surfing the Internets on my garage computer.
Or working on my Bronco.
But that really isn't an invitation for everyone in the fucking neighborhood to stop by and try to chat me up.
Leave me the fuck alone.
geesh
Tonight it was the caddy-corner neighbor and his wife.
Six hours I had to listen to them talk.
And yes, I liked them.
But dammit, I need my alone time.
It was kinda cool seeing their albino boxer play with my dogs though.
And there was also the poor brain -damaged 30 y/o from two doors down, who got hit by a police car a few years ago. He's a sweet dude, but I don't wanna talk to him every fucking day.
Human interaction is awesome.
But I don't want it every single day.

You had the choice to leave me to my own devices.
But obviously you thought it was more important to interrupt me.

Roll with it and practice finding something interesting to talk about...

...unless the visitors are just completely wasting your time and then explain that you really have things to get done and excuse yourself.

Just don't be an asshole for the sake of driving them off.
That almost always has the opposite effect.

Yeah, I'm going to change my take on it and say go with gobrian's suggestion except, be sure to have your whole heart in it and masturbate furiously...

I was going to say just have a pr0n queued up in the background of your pc and when someone walks in, hit play and turn it up.

Other than that, it sounds like you have pretty great neighbors. The kind that might give you a call at work if someone theyve never seen starts hanging around your house.

Fuck you
Why do you talk to them.. as far as roommates go.. well is that self explanatory.

What ever you do don't date a steady girl.. women NEED to talk.. specially when you dont want to talk.

have your roomie trace you & Ghosts outline on the driveway, sidewalk or road... you will be left alone! :D
you can even make the outlines look like you were getting humped or molested by a rapist.

Good morning.
:yawn:
The dogs wouldn't let me sleep in any more than I did.
The smallest one started nudging the bottom of my back to get me out of bed.
I pet her, thinking she'd go away.
She started nudging my back again, so I got up.
Got coffee and walked outside to my garage.
Lit a cig.
And no more than 15 seconds later, a cop rolls up and starts asking me questions.
Dude, I definitely need a back shop!

I'm guessing someone let off a firecracker because she (the cop) was asking if I heard anything that sounded like a gunshot.
I let her know I'd just woken up but my dogs seemed freaked out about something.

I moved an hour away from the city..not many people come by. Except now we are getting to know some of the people out here, and they come by. No one seems to just drop in though, which is good.

Was she hot? "Cop" hot?

I live in a bit more rural area than you, but I find partial nudity works pretty well. The only person seemingly immune to that tactic is my closest neighbor (about 1/4 mile away). He's wandered up while I'm working around the yard in my skivvies. If he doesn't mind, I don't mind.
