I say I hate small talk and people usually agree, like “oh, yeah, I hate it, too,” because really, who does like small talk?

but I don’t think you understand, when I say I hate small talk what I mean is that unless I’ve already taken a moment to steel myself and am in a optimal frame of mind, small talk paralyzes me with anxiety. I once sent my brother a text message begging him to call me so I could escape a bout of small talk that had snuck up on me.
