I suspect we have all heard the term Too Much Information. Usually it refers to something like someone saying "you should have seen the skid on my under ware I got the other day after eating Mexican food". Not something we really needed to know. I also think of it in terms of conversation about something gross.

When I was growing up the term did not exist but the concept sure did. I remember certain topics coming up at the dinner table that would make my dad's face get all contorted. "That's not talk for the dinner table". Never seemed to bother me.

So in general, do you have a limit on what is Too Much Information or do you just use the TMI phrase kinda in jest when someone tells you something gross or private.

Is it different depending on, say, whether you are eating or not? Can a certain topic make you loose your appetite?

My friends usually tell me "TMI" when I am talking. I tend to share everything about my life, wether you want to hear it or not. I do think that it is funny when people tell me tmi.

Sharing is good. You never know when someone will have something to say that will make all the difference in the world.

But I guess some folks to do wrong things or make judgments with some information. Best to know your audience.

sometimes it depends on who the info is about...
there are some people I know who I really don't want to thing about beyond "in general"

I say TMI to my oldest brother all the time. Since he became my roommate he has decided to share way too much! LOL! Some things I really could have lived my life never knowing. LMAO!!!

Yeah, I guess if someone like my father or mother started talking about their sex life it would be TMI. It seems to be that way with relatives. And I don't want to hear certain personal stuff from my sister. Oh and imagining her on her back screaming in a wild orgasm is not a picture I want in my head.
