Many years ago when people didn’t want to hear what you were speaking they would hold up their hand and say, “Talk to the hand.” To say that this behavior was rude in an understatement. If a person does not wish to be involved in a conversation or argument, they should simply end it. Playing games such as saying talk to the hand doesn’t solve anything. There are individuals who feel that no matter what they may voice that their opinion should be heard whether they are right or wrong. Many people expect others to listen to them as they believe they are always correct. However, often they are not. Have you ever known a person who will go on and on and lecture you until you pray they get laryngitis? I have known of a few people and after a while I simply turned them out. Their continued babbling became boring. An occasional yes, I know or sure generally would suffice. I was constantly watching what I might say so I didn’t have to hear their opinions, point of view or lectures. Parents do that which is one of the reasons children ignore them. The individuals who believe they know best are annoying, frustrating and irritating. I found it was easier to limit my conversation. Not everyone is always accurate about everything. Plus, if you are stuck in a disagreement, argument, fight or squabble it’s just not worth it to let it drag on don’t you agree?
