Engaging in conversation when cut off. How to hold frame and deal with these situations without looking butt hurt?

Reddit View
April 9, 2018

Following happens from time to time in social circles and social/office situations.

1.Office - Standing with colleagues discussing/having a chat, another colleague would come to join in, and stand infront/beside me that cuts me off from the circle.

2.When speaking, people either interrupts or stops listening or paying attention. Or looks like in their heads, already coming up with something else to say.

For point number one, the things I try tend to make it look like I'm butt hurt or that I've lost frame. How to tackle this without losing frame?

For point number two, I will politely ask them to let me finish or stop interrupting. However, the "stop paying attention" part slides through.

Any advise on dealing with these two situations without losing frame or lookong butt hurt is welcome. Feel free to point out what prior characteristics of mine may lead to this situation.

Don’t give a fuck when it happens

That’s literally it. If you get cut off or people stop paying attention, forget you were even speaking at all and go do something productive

This can be done for example, if am at office. I can literally walk away and do something productive. If I am with a bunch of friends, what would you say is productive that I can do while they are there. I tend to open up my phone and withdraw my attention.

Anything. Do push ups start talking about titties. Go to phone last resort

Haha. I like how he fixes his tie and pats his blazer afterwards. Thanks for this.

I actually might try something similar.

[–]redpillclub1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Sometimes I get a mildly amused look on my face raise an eyebrow and just stare at them like "really?". Slot of times they realize what they did and apologize.

If not, and others notice, it's like I acknowledged it but I'm unfazed. I go back to a mildly amused look and finish out the conversation like I'm talking to an idiotic child.

I never let it jar me. That's hold I hold frame no matter what.

I just don't give a fuck.

I'll try something subtle like this.

If you’re being interrupted it’s because you’re not the most important person in the room. Fix that.

[–]BasketCase5592 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

This is dumb. For one, you can't always be the most important person in the room. If you are, then you're hanging out with the wrong people. Not to mention that the desire to be the most important person in the room is needy and approval-seeking behavior.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
