This isn’t exactly the same as blurting out, but I think it’s related.

Anybody else use “scripts” for small talk? I find that during conversations I tend to say things that don’t quite fit, because I am anticipating that the person will say one thing, when in fact they say something else, and by the time I have processed what they actually said, my response has already come out of my mouth.

It usually happens to me at the beginning or end of a conversation. Mid conversation I’m usually fine, since you can’t really fall into a script there.
