Shut Up

Two little words, but pack a big punch. More folks are using it instead of saying “get out” when they don’t believe something you said, or “really” or “you don’t say”! So here’s the problem, someone who doesn’t speak so good english overhears you tell someone “shut up” and that person keeps talking, they are confused!!!! Someone tells you to shut up and you do, so they keep talking to you and can’t understand why you don’t answer. They are confused also. So there you have, in the land of I’m confused and so are you!

One Response to Shut Up

  1. I have seen many situations such as you have described. Oftentimes, communication amongst people can be clouded by other things going on around them. Indeed, communications skills are sadly needed by many people.
    I have found that some people who take their frustrations and hostilities out on others often become snippish and belittle others. In turn, those other people who feel targetted for no just reason may become short with that person and simlple say “shut up” out of sheer exasperation.
    Then there are others who say shut up because they just plain don’t know any better.
