Default Re: Do people ever talk over you?

I get talked over often, but what frustrates me more is when I speak up and people simply don't hear me.

A consistent example is greeting people at work. If someone asks me how I'm doing and I say <great, so-so, shitty, whatever> and then immediately ask them how they're doing, they've already gone on their way and don't hear me at all. It's like they don't expect me to do more than a minimum of talking and are closed to the possibility of me saying anything more. This sucks when I'm actually feeling talkative, it's like getting shut down before I've had a chance to do anything.

I can't stand when someone talks overtop of me. I don't talk much, and when I do it's usually something important, or at least interesting. So when someone talks over me with his random bs, it's quite frustrating.

That ALWAYS happens to me. I've cried over things like this.

Default Don't talk

No not really. Well, I never talk in the first place so maybe that's why, I mean if I'm not even giving them a chance to. The oppotunity for someone to talk over me is extremely rare. Well, but seriously I don't talk super quiet. Plus I know if someone did start talking over me I would just start talking louder so that it would tune them out more, because that is seriously annoying.

Heh some of us are too much of a coward to interrupt those "important" people talking. Sucks but it's a reality for some of us. Awesome that you can conjure up the strength to put people in their place, though! Good job.
