I don’t like it when people feel the need to be part of every conversation. Or maybe I just don’t like it when people love the sound of their own voice. If I’m talking to someone, I’m sorry, but if I’m not looking at you, I probably would not appreciate your input. I can only focus on one person at a time. If you want to listen, fine, listen. But please don’t say anything until I’m done directing my comments to the person I’m talking to and need to get across my message to. If you say something in the middle of my conversation, I’m going to ignore it from now on. I’m not trying to be rude. I’m being respectful to the person I’m talking to, to give them my undivided attention.

And if I’m talking and I’m clearly not done getting one train of thought out, please do not interrupt me with your opinions on the subject and then keep going incessantly because you like the sound of your own voice. That will not earn you brownie points with me. That will only irritate me.
