I thought it was Domesticated who ranted about people sharing their dreams? No matter, they're right: even your most captivating and bizarre dreams are a sequence of firings completely irrelevant to anyone at all, and apart from the rare conversation where they might be of some topical significance, nobody really cares about them if they're not theirs. The only reason people share them so wantonly is because most people want to share their own visions; you know, like the majority of conversation, only incorrigibly egocentric.

nothing says 'id rather have a colonoscopy' than someone who starts a conversation with 'i had the weirdest dream last night...'. for some reason they believe their non-sensical ramblings concerning their disturbed subconscious would be of interest to anybody. dreams that youre not a part of are like orgies- if you cant see em on video do you really give a shit? not fucking likely. dreams make no sense even to the dreamer, so why the are you forcing me to listen to a pointless story with no beginning middle or end, no plot or interesting characters beyond your dog that learned to talk? theres a reason john grisham or james patterson dont include sentences like 'and i was in this aeroplane, and for some reason the pope was there and before i knew it id turned into a purple monkey dishwasher'. i had a dream last night about asking leonardo dicaprio whether he'd seen the whole film 'man in the iron mask' and did he get how shit it was. the only reason to tell that story would be to emphasise the re-telling is of no interest to anyone. fuck off.
