My daughter in law does that which is really awful when I am talking to my son on the phone and she listens in the background and puts in her 3 cents worth although nobody asked her. So I can't understand either one of them. There have been times when i have asked him to leave the room because it is just too difficult to hear either one of them and the conversation is between him and me, not a 3-way. Now we usually talk when he is on the road and thus no interruptions or butting in from her. She does that also in person and she is loud as if she had a hearing problem which she does not. She says this is the way she grew up, one only got a word in edgewise by being loud and interrupting. Come on, that was 40 years ago, one would think that she had learned by now not to do that. Grrr!I absolutely hate when people talk over me and assume they can finish my thoughts for me. For one of my groups, we have to convene about our project and during the call, I tried to talk about all my points. I don't think anyone was really listening to me and every time I tried to share my idea, I just got trampled by what everyone else had to say. Really cannot wait for these courses to be OVER.
