Repeating yourself...

Do you often have to repeat yourself? I mean i don't mind repeating myself once or twice. But i get very impatient when the other party can't catch what i'm saying. It's not that i'm mumbling or you don't understand my accent, but it's just like you're deaf or something. For goodness sake go and dig your ears!! Do you? Do you get impatient when someone (say a family member or close friend) keeps asking you the same question over and over just because he or she can't hear you. And you have to practically shout. I mean you're not in the next room or anything...

I feel like that sometimes, I think the person is just not paying attention to you when your speaking or their hard of hearing.

Yes I do sometimes when comes from my family and close friends. Obviously, they weren't listening mindfully and that kind of annoys me. Otherwise, I am a patient person and in my workplace I can repeat the same thing as in counseling the patients as may times as I would require to.

I never repeat myself. I won't be impatient when someone is repeating himself, because I know that I should show respect to others.
