“Can I finish please?”
I simply wait till they are done expressing their “intellectual superiority” and continue with “…as I was saying”
As a person with a speach impediment, I deal with this all the time and fucking hate it with a passion, I just get blunt. Such as ‘you’ve asked me question, do you want me to answer it? Fucking google it instead!’.
I don’t deal with them, i just don’t talk to them anymore
I stop having them in my life. You don’t wanna listen to me, I don’t wanna listen to you, easiest solution is to take myself out of the equation.
I just walk away
Poison his lunch with some laxative, then you will have a lot of peaceful time
You interrupt them with “Excuse me, I’m speaking.” And then continue to speak.
My mum used to do this. It was almost like she had no self-awareness
Ask them to please stop interrupting you, its rude to constantly cut into a conversation.
I give them a crackhead psychopathic stare everytime they interrupt and it works when they look over at you and make eye contact. A couple times usually does the trick.
Easy. I don’t stop talking. I just keep saying what I was going to say, maybe get louder to drown them out. They’ll usually shut up within a few words and within a few interuptions they’ll (at least subconsciously) get the message to wait. If it happens once during my train of thought, I’ll show an olive branch and say something along the lines of “thank you for waiting until I was finished, *insert name*. Do you have something you want to share?” If it was actually important they’ll share it. If they were just trying to steamroll you they’ll probably just dismiss it out of hand.
Unfortunately, I’m someone who easily caves when I get talked over. Like I immediately devalue my contribution to the conversation, and it sucks :/
Do not give any input for bad behavior. Common dog training technique.
I just stop talking.
As someone who sometimes interrupts other people…I’m an oblivious idiot, *PLEASE* call me out on it. Thanks to people who call me out, I’m gradually learning to recognize when I interrupt and how to stop
There’s one viable option…
How do you think shootings happen
Are you going to let me speak?
Then stare at them like I am going to murder them
