Or, on the other hand, perhaps you're talking to someone who has nothing important to say
, and just keeps blabbering
on and on, not allowing you to state your point of view
, and interrupt
ing you whenever you do get a chance to say anything. Frustrated
with their stupidity
, you keep raising your voice louder
to be heard over them, but they just won't shut up
, because they're used to having yelling matches
such as the one you are currently involved in.
A more generally applicable axiom might be: "If you have to scream to be heard, then the conversation you're engaged is not going to go anywhere and will not convince anyone of anything, so you should walk away".
