Easy Ways to Know if You Are Interrupting
Interrupting can be
considered an innocent act during the course of daily life. But in all reality, interrupting, even to close friends, is rude, insensitive, and over-assuming of the one interrupting.
Here are but a few examples of how and where interrupting takes place and how it might affect those around the one doing the interrupting.
often find themselves unable to sit still while their own company president is speaking about the company's loss of profits in the last calendar year. The CEO jumps to his feet and begins a long, drawn-out talk of why "he" knows why the company is losing money and explains that this is due to no sales. All worth his interrupting to say his piece.
often have to be told in a stern manner to not open certain doors in the workplace due to this is where the higher-up's meet for secret meetings to talk business. (See photo to right) this girl just keeps opening the secret door because she doesn't know that she is interrupting, so her immediate boss must sit her down and in a discreet manner advise her to stop doing this or be let go.
SEE THE DISGUSTED LOOK
on the girl sitting down (in photo to the right)? She is irritated because he best friend insists that she look at her recent wedding photos on her lunch break. The girl at the table was busy listening to a colleague tell how they learned how to cross-stitch when "Junie Boo," interrupted the conversation pushing her wedding album into her friend's face.
MAKING A FOOL OF YOURSELF
by interrupting to reach a personal goal, say, get a hot story for your television station, is not worth the time or effort. The girl (in photo to the right) has found this cold fact out to be true. She not only interrupted some important officials, but embarrassed herself in the process.
A CANDIDATE FOR POLITICAL OFFICE
lives in a secret fear that some radical group will jump on the stage and vocally-interrupt his speech that was written for the candidate to get the necessary votes to be elected. Sure, a political candidate is not loved by everyone, but talk to him in private. Interrupting him (or her) like this will get you nowhere.
