You're not really a lurker if you only think it! Being a sociable talker isn't a bad thing, IMHO, if you aren't taking up the time and space the staff needs to pay proper attention to the customer, especially a newbie who will be intimidated/hesitant. if I stop in to do a little shopping and hang out for a bit to talk I get out of the way and shut up if the owner/staff member has work to do!I am saddened that I think I am the lurker aka a-hole. lol Usually I only think the negative stuff though. I rarely say anything to them. I am so ashamed.
