look up any word, like tribbing:
The imaginary handcuffs slapped upon you when someone engages you in what should be a brief conversation, but turns into a long, drawn-out monologue. You are trapped in a conversation from which you cannot escape.
"Sorry I'm late for our meeting but I ran into Julie and she had me in conversation cuffs and I couldn't get away."
