Pop quiz, hotshot.

You're chit-chatting with someone about your garden. One pesky corner of your yard refuses to allow growth of anything, and every bush you've planted there keeps dying. So, you're talking to a person at work you know is botanically inclined. Then, someone approaches you, with papers in hand, waiting politely for you to wrap up your conversation.

Do you:
A. Continue to chat casually about your faulty root systems, ignoring the person who clearly has work-related business to talk to you about?
B. Acknowledge the person waiting for you, and try to wrap up the conversation without being rude to the person you were speaking to?
C. Cut off the conversation immediately and get back to work without a polite word to anyone?

Monica Gellar chooses A. Just FYI.
