Dear people who jump into conversations,

Remember the phrase It’s an A and B conversation so C your way out? Maybe you should think of it when you believe you have the right to jump into people’s conversations because you most definitely do not! Nothing makes me more infuriated than when someone interrupts me when I am talking. I will not interrupt you, so what gives you the right to interrupt me? Here is the correct answer: absolutely nothing.

I get it, someone is talking about something really interesting and it feels right to express your opinion. But this does not mean that you can interrupt the conversation to let us know how you feel. Think about how it makes the other person feel when they are interrupted. When you interrupt someone, it tells the person talking that what you have to say is more important than what they have to say. It shows disregard for the person altogether. It is very annoying when you are so self-centered. When deciding if it is necessary to apply input on someone’s conversation, do not join in if someone is already talking.

You should understand by now, but since you clearly do not, I will say it one more time: You should never jump into a conversation for any reason. It is annoying, rude, and unnecessary. Simply wait until whoever is talking finishes what they were saying, and then share so you are not perceived as impolite and irritating. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Someone who doesn’t like to be interrupted
