The Zorro’s breakfast menu is terrific. (There’s an off-menu omelet named after me, but that’s another story.)
Unfortunately, our usual quiet meal this past weekend was disturbed by a fellow loudly and annoyingly monologuing to a woman he was breakfasting with.
She didn’t say a single word, but he rambled on and on about subject after subject without pause.
When he started blowing shit about humbleness, I hadda roll my eyes.
Anyway, his food finally arrived, and I thought, great, maybe he’ll shut the eff up for a couple of minutes.
Nope. He was a master of blathering mindlessly while at the same time shoveling Eggs Benedict into his piehole.
One of this idjit’s remarks was priceless…
“But no matter what, she doesn’t hear a word I say.”
Well, no kidding, Sherlock.
Take a breath occasionally. Allow the other person to speak. And for crying out loud, LISTEN!
Give the other person a chance to say something and they’re much more likely to hear what you have to say.
That’s called “conversation.”
Have a conversation.
You’ll develop better relationships, both in your personal life and in business.
