I Hate Being Talked Over

    Nope.

    Sorry, but talking over me and raising your voice, possibly also coupled with finger-pointing/-waving will not help you get your point across nor will it increase your validity points.

    My Opinion: Revised

    I have now gotten to the point that if you talk over me I will not hesitate to yell over you until you shut the ******* up. in fact I'll yell that in your face complete with the one finger salute with both hands. I'm tired of it happening and it will not happen anymore.

    It Is Called Manners, Don't You Have Any?

    A basic rule, one we were taught as children. You wouldn't like it if it was done to you. There are 2 women in my class and they do it continuously. I actual cut over the top (just out of absolute sheer annoyance) of one last monday and said "I'm sorry, is it that you...

    More Important?!?!? No Way!!

    It just makes me feel unwanted and that nobody seems to crae about what I have to say. I find it rather rude and ignorant as well. Didn't they notice I was talking??Or don't they care and think what they have to say is more important??

    I Want To Smack People

    I hate being talked over. It's one of my huge pet peeves. I'm usually the listener when it comes to conversations anyways but there's times where I'd want to speak. However, people keep running over my words with theirs. It's not fair to me. I hate when one of my friends...

    I Know It's Rude

    i hate it when people talk over me. not only is it the height of rudeness it's belittling and makes you feel like what you have to say doesn't matter or isn't important.

    Annoying...

    I'm very soft-spoken, so it gets really aggravating when someone tries to talk over me, or interrupt me while I'm trying to speak... I've even had someone just yell over me... they weren't saying anything... just yelling 'ahhh!' so I would stop talking... ugh...

    I love college, because people listen

    when I'm talking there. At home, and sometimes with my best friends, I'm always being talked over. Just yesterday my grand parents came over, and every time I would go to contribute to the conversation someone would talk over me. So I gave up, picked up my phone, and started...
