Stay quiet while I'm talking!

Posted on Wed, Aug 4, 2010 at 11:25 AM

You know what my pet peeve is? Being interrupted when I'm talking!

I'm sure this is many others' pet peeves as well. I'm so sick of talking to someone and having them cut me off mid-sentence to throw in their two-cents! ...Hello, I'm still talking here!

I see people do this to others all the time, and so many people do this to me, even people I like. Funny thing is, when said individuals talk to me (and talk and talk and talk), I will actually stay silent and LISTEN, and WAIT to respond (even in cases where they're boring me to tears)!

It's pretty fucking bad when it takes me twice as long to tell a story, or get my point across, because the recipient doesn't shut up long enough for me to finish... Ok, say a couple words in response while I'm talking, but don't start telling me your own story for about 10 minutes when I wasn't even finished mine! My repeated sighs and 'anyways, as I was saying...'s should be a hint to you that you need to shut your mouth while someone else is talking!!

Are you that dense that I have to tell you "Hey, I wasn't finished"? —Frustrated
