I am one of those people that other people tend to talk over. I don't know why. If there's a group of people, I often get talked down. Am I too soft spoken? Take too long to get to the point? I don't know. My mom has even apologized to me about it, and has said she doesn't know why she does it. But my mom isn't the only person who does.


Probably one of the reasons I like forums so much. I get to finish a sentence. LOL

So, you've moved on, I hope?
Best believe that!

I was like you many years ago. But I remember my dad saying that I was a loud kid and tended to yell. So I found my voice again and if/when someone talks over me, or down to me, I go full throttle RPM on them.

Many a head has turned from my yelling. I've been told constantly to "take it down".

It could be but she gets an attitude. She sits right next to me so it feels like a hostile environment. She doesn't even say good morning when she gets like that. To keep things normal, I just let her ramble on, say "yeah" or "i know" and then go back to my work.

Interesting. So you simply turn up the volume, while remaining calm, and in conversation mode? I'd like to see how that goes.

So, let her sit with her attitude. She's the one who has to live with herself. You can just go on with your work, unless you two have to collaborate on projects, or something. Let her stew in her own juices.

I love him, but he doesnt see that he is doing it, and/ or he has said before that when people interrupt him he doesn't get mad about it. Although if someone interrupted him EVERY time he tried to say something and was never able to get his side heard, I can guarantee he would definitely see it as an issue that needs resolving and knowing him he would demand it be done immediately no ands ifs or buts.... how can i get him to understand without becoming manipulative
