People Who Talk To Much

Conversation is a form of interactive spontaneous communication between two or more people who are following the rules of etiquette. It is a polite give and take of subjects thought of by people talking with each other for company, the ability to talk socially with others.
God gave us two ears and one mouth for a reason. He wanted us to listen twice as much as we talk. Some where along the line it has gotten turned around and to many people talk twice as much as they listen.

Lets start with conversation between two people. Bubba was probably one of the easiest going persons to ever walk the earth. She could put up with more than anyone I have ever known. One of her pet peeves was when she was telling someone something and they would start talking to her while she was in the middle of a sentence. She felt like it meant they were not paying any attention to what she was saying. I remember a few times when she was talking to someone on the phone and she would hang up quickly. I would say that was quick, she would say they were not listening to anything I was saying any way.

Conversation in groups is a little tougher. A group conversation is a project with each person weaving in TIDBIT HERE AND THERE. It is not a time for monologues. If you notice that you have talked for a few minutes without any questions, comments, or general signs of life from other people, you are probably sucking up the air in the room. Cede the floor to someone else.

The interrupting the speaker in mid-sentence should be easy to avoid, just wait until that person is through talking before you start.
When you interrupt anothers train of thought or send the discussion off into a tangent, you indicate you are rude, either unable or unwilling to let the speaker make his or her point. Remember conversation is talk and listen, not talk and talk. When someone cuts me off in the middle of my sentence, I want to say I am sorry the middle of my sentence interrupted the beginning of yours.

In a group when someone is talking to to a crowd of people and another person enters the conversation while that person is still talking is so rude.

Then when neither of them will stop and wait for the other one, they start to talk louder than the other person, the nobody can concentrate on the conversation.

Barbara Walters show " The View " is usually five women and a guest all talking at once, getting mad at each other getting ruder as the show progresses, about five minutes is all I can watch.Rude, Rude,.

The only time I ever watch HSN, or QVC is when they have the electronics on. They have these electronic experts on to explain the products, how they work, etc. Then you have these beautiful sexy hosts that talk over them and constantly interrupt them.

My lovely Joan loves to watch the cooking shows. When the hosts go on and on without even taking a breath, I tell her I got to go or I am going to punch my ear drums out. LOL

People that talk to much actually miss out on a lot of things because the other person that does have good things to offer to the conversation just shut up when the realize the person is not listening to them.

People go to the Doctors, interrupt them when they are trying to explain things to them, get home, can't remember what they said, to busy talking, not enough time listening.
