Conversation about weather enters 36th hour
Updated: Jul 7, 2020
A conversation between colleagues at work about the nice weather has been taking place for a combined 36 hours consecutively.
With the UK in the middle of a heatwave, the only thing on people’s minds has been the weather and it appear as though it is the only thing being talked about too.
A specialist in human relations says the sheer length of time devoted to discussing the weather isn’t a shock.
“Weather is always a good topic to choose to talk about with people, especially when it is at one end of the extreme. Whether it’s generally discussing the weather, saying how they wish they were outside rather than at work or if they are saying they hate the hot weather, people are always talking about the weather when it is nice. Therefore, it is unsurprising that this topic of conversation could go on so long.”
