Recently I used these words to stop someone, who kept interrupting me during a conversation.
I immediately felt pride in for standing up for this behavior we often experience during professional meetings.
Later, I felt remorse because I was like “what if I interrupt others while they are speaking?”
I do not know the answer to that, but I sure will watch myself in the next while. If I do interrupt anyone, I should stand back.
I learn these words from someone else. That was the first time I had heard them and I thought they were much powerful than saying “Let me finish”, or “Do you mind if I continue”, or “Can I finish my words?”
What do you think?
