how many people do you meet in life, particularly work i guess, for whom a conversation consists of them talking and giving their opinion or whatever then stopping talking while you talk so they can continue giving the same opinion completely ignoring every word you said?

i find it a lot, people don't know how to listen
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Sleep now in the fire

I find most people just spend the time when you're talking thinking of what they're going to say next.

yeah that's basically what i mean, for them it's a pause in carrying on what they were going to say or working out how to continue what they were saying rather than listening to the other person

I see it loads at work, you're telling someone what you need them to do, they interupt you with what they think you want them to do. Then you have to say the same thing four times till they realise what you actually want them to do.

I've noticed it a lot in written handovers too, people don't read properly what you've put then  complain 'no one told us about x' I f***ing well did you illiterate c***.

the thing is when you're looking out for it you become so aware of it and can see the people who simply aren't listening as you're talking to them :lol:

It's soul destroying knowing you're telling some c*** something you're going to have explain again when they do what they think rather than what you said.

That said the people who get it and understand are an absolute joy. When you get a question that is legitimate and improves what you want.......

:lol::lol: Think it's another part of the same over-arching law that means you have to be an ignorant c*** if you're pushing a buggy.

What's the point of them?

If my brakes fail at 70mph am I supposed to swerve into oncoming traffic instead of the baby on board car in front of me?

They are because there have been occasions when the car was so crushed up after a crash but the baby was alive in it but unseen. They should only really be hanging up when there us a baby on board.

But I think he meant those those expectant mums that actually wear clothing staying baby on board as a cutesy vomit Inducing giggle.

Edit.. just read up and that's not true but it has happened. It was just to encourage other drivers to keep their distance.
Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.
