Over the years you pick up on things and then know what to do. Okay and so there are a couple of people I know that give a whole shpiel when they say something that they feel is important. For example, when they ask me to do something, they don't just say a short sentence, they go on and on about it and then finally finish. I used to reply, 'okay I'll do that' while they were talking, to let them know I understand. But they just continue because they want to make sure I understand how they feel. And so now I just wait until they are finished and then I say okay.
I noticed this in myself too, but with other topics. Sometimes when a friend and I are talking about a certain subject and I want to get my point across, I keep explaining, eventhough they get it. I guess it's because I feel that they think they get it but don't really. I should probably though just take their word for it. Or I could ask questions to see if they understand. I also noticed this in my friend too. For instance, we're talking about something and then they say something, and I feel like adding a few words like 'yea, I agree there's......' but they keep talking and talking and don't like when they're interupted and so I just wait until they're done and then say what I wanted to.
What gets me though, is that when I'm saying something, I have to shorten it, but the other person still says their whole big thing. Oh well.
