Did you ever notice that some people mouth what you are saying while you are

talking to them? You guys know what I mean right? When the person you are speaking to moves their lips right along with you. I find that so annoying. There are 3 people that do that when I speak, my cousin "s", my neighbor around the corner from me and my mother in law. It drives me crazy! Hahaha one time, while I was speaking to my mother in law, I covered my mouth so she couldn't see my lips moving. Of course that didn't stop her from mouthing everything I was saying but I was trying to get her to stop. I feel like I'm a ventriloquist sometimes. Hope you all get what I'm saying.

hahaha yes it is kinda crazy to see when people do that to you. that happens to me when my kids are still toddlers. they mimic and it really drives me crazy specially when you are in a bad mood. well kids doing that makes me laugh.... but if an adult does that well its not funny at all.

I know and can understand what you are saying.In my case it is my wife.When I talk about an important thing to an invited person I can see from the corner of my eye that her lips move along with my speech.It makes you very nervous and you become very conscious and cannot be at ease.But as I understand the care and concern of her's I just ignore that.

Your wife does that too? HaHaHa I thought my mother in law was the only person to do that. I am so glad you understand what I have gone through. Thank you for responding. :)

It is strange that certain things you think are very unique and exclusive experience is experienced by many.

That would be so annoying! I'd be tempted to ask if she had a mental problem. Course I'm sure your hubby wouldn't like that.

lol no he wouldn't like that at all ..... i don't believe its mental but maybe more of a subconscious thing. either way, wish she would stop. Thank for replying :).
