You can’t hide the greasy irony
dripping too quickly upside
that warmed up talk-over

trashing the possibility
of someone speaking
something you don’t
already know.


  1. Dripping with the apparently un-self-conscious irony of a monologue masquerading as a conversation, the "talk-over" talker dominates and interrupts. Negotiating an interaction with such talkers is one of my most unenjoyable tasks.

    How do you deal with it?

  2. I try not to become one myself... at least that way, I can keep the numbers down.
    Seriously, it is a tough intervention, since it seems like no intervention is ever effective without being a total a**hole myself... I'll have to reflect on this a bit more.
