Will you ever shut up?

I hate it when people say the words "Will you ever shut up?" It seems so mean and rude! It's much nicer to hear someone say "Excuse me." Of course, maybe it's just the tone of voice that makes it mean. I guess it's difficult to interact with other people sometimes and politeness and understanding is a rare thing nowadays.

I will play the Devil's advocate here. "Excuse Me" sounds cute and polite, but the question is do people shut up when these words are used. Some of the polite ones do, but most of the people don't and then people have to use the harsher words "Will you ever shut up?". I guess as long as people don't heed to the first polite "Excuse Me", the following "Will you ever shut up?" is deserved. But, you are right, people should give "Excuse Me" a try first. Cheers! Ram
