That’s What I Just Said!

If I speak, will you hear me? Will you listen? Are you able to consider what I say before you react or are you already forming your response before I finish sharing my opinion? Is this a conversation, going both ways, or are you just sharing your news and conclusions, glossing over what I might think? In which circumstances might my reasoning impact decision making? If you’re really not interested in what I think or have to say by way of answering your question or reacting to what you’ve told me, don’t tell me shit or, at least, preface it by letting me know my opinion isn’t necessary or maybe say what I think, because you appear to have worked that out before I open my mouth.

It is the heighth of disregard or disinterest when you repeat something I already mentioned, denying hearing it at all. That’s right. You weren’t listening to what I just said.
