    Is it rude to ask a person a question and before they answer it,turn away?

    And start talking to another person.

    Yes, I think it is rude, whether it's a question or statement. If someone is responding, replying or just plain talking to you it is only polite to listen to what they are saying.

    Yes it is very rude for a person to not allow you to make a reply and talking to another person as you attempt to answer their question or statement.

    They are showing that they don't care about your opinion and have already come to their own conclusion as to the answer you will give.

    Of course it is rude.  It shows the person being asked the question that the other person is not fully engaged and certainly not interested in the answer.

    Yes.  By turning away you show that person that you were insincere in asking that person's opinion or advice.

    Incredibly rude! It can be seen as incredibly ignorant too. Why ask a question if you don't bother to listen to the answer? smile

      To annoy the person? Trolling isn't just a thing you do, it's a way of life. :-P

      That's a joke. What gets me is when someone asks a question and I'm halfway thru my answer and they finish it for me. I guess they want to make sure the answer is the one they want to hear.

    Of course it is, why would you ask someone a question and then turn away before they can answer. Why ask the question at all.

    Yes it is extremely rude to not let the other person respond after you've asked a question. The most common villain is "How are you"; people will often ask out of courtesy or as the mannerisms that they're taught and then continue speaking whatever is on their minds. The poor fella is left wondering, 'why did he ask n the first place, wasn't I doing just fine without his concern?!?!?!'

    It would also depend on whether the person is just staring at you blankly and seems to have no intention of saying anything, because they're currently concentrating on breathing and standing at the same time. Multi-tasking abilities vary wildly from person to person.
