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.
