When You Have to Repeat Yourself 4 Times...

Don't you hate it when you have to repeat yourself 4 or 5 times to someone who can hear just fine, but they weren't listening? It makes me so mad!!! Has this ever happened to you? If so, how did it make you feel, and what were your thoughts about that person that moment?

Yes, it happened to me several times already. the customer is telling me that i don't speak English well. i was just repeating what i was saying like 3-4 times so for the last time i tried to let that customer hear what i am telling him, i told him what i have to say in a veryyyy slow manner that i have to state all words in a prolonging manner and pause 2 seconds after each word i have said. hehehe! i am sure that customer was able to notice that i was being sarcastic on him. i even asked him in a slow manner as well what is the wrong grammar in my sentences. he could not even respond to that! so there! he hung up on me!

Definitely angry! I do have such experience before when I was eager to talk to someone and that person just overlooked me. It did not happen so often as the majority would respect others and be polite, however, rude ones are still everywhere. Once I tried to have a conversation with my friend who was just 2 meters away, but she glimpsed me once and then kept doing what she was doing there. And I called her again whereas she just played deaf until I became furious and stood in front of her and ask why she paid no attention to me. This fellow answered: why should I answer you just because you called me? Holy Father, what kind of reason is that? Duhh? You do not care about people if you do not respect and love them. It is just not right to ignore someone. It hurts. I suppose you could that person this by asking whether he or she cares about friends any more. Have a good day!

I wont mind repeating the topic 4 or5 times if the person is really interested but i hate myself to repeat the topic 4 or 5 times if the person is not at all interested.Similar experience had happen to me ,that's it was a exam time and i asked one of my friend to teach me again and again but she never gave me a dam and stayed on her own world.I kept like that only but later on she turned to me and said what you said before,i told its fine and its OK.I rally got hurt and i was waiting to revenge on her.

This kind of situation is very bad. When you are listening to someone, we give a feeling that you are important and I am here to listen you. It has happened many times when I am saying important things and the people listening to me are busy in their own world. The strange thing is when we say that I am talking to you, the reply is I am listening. It's difficult to say how many of them are actually listening and how many are not. In class I always used to look at my teacher and give eye contact but then I would never concentrate on what he/she is teaching. I think I gave a good impression that I was attentive to all my teachers but the fact was I wasn't. I think this is the case with many of us. We want other people to listen to us but we don't care to listen to other people. We need to work on these things.

I also hate repeating myself as much as hate listening to people who keeps repeating themselves too. It irritates me. If you have already said something once or twice, I guess I am intelligent enough to get his or her point, he should not be repeating things to me over and over again because its soo boring and a lot of times really annoying. I do not enjoy repeating myself to others. People should be good listeners. I hate it when people do not pay attention when I speak or say something.It's disrespectful.
