You cannot tell a sentence bigger than 5 words to a woman without being interrupted

some women never finish their sentences

I almost hate to say this but this trait, this very bad habit of speaking before the other person finishes is primarily a female one. In informal conversations, it is noticeable that four out of five times, it is women who do this.

Not true. It should read:
In informal conversations, it is noticeable that four out of five times, it is men who do this

No, it is women that do it, f stop. I have to be honest here. Sometimes I go against the grain here but not this time. Truth is truth and ZIMMY called it.

nope. Many men just ignore what woman is saying and just start talking as if she was not there. That happens a lot.
In addition, I could innundate you with links, right from the news, when two men with opposing views are interviewed, talking right over each other.

Maybe men notice it more when women do it.

Yes, I think you have :) I don't bother speaking when my mother-in-law speaks as she will just continue anyway. Monologues are for choice here ;)

Well, the news outlets are not exactly 'informal' conversations between or among 'regular' people in social settings. ... but, this article is interesting reading in itself, but click on the video, sit back and listen to the whole thing. The good stuff, "women talking over each other" starts at the 2 minute mark. Enjoy!
