I don’t know if people have trouble hearing me or am I eating my words or plainly gibberish but I’ve been asked several times to repeat myself. And I’m annoyed! I don’t really like repeating myself, especially when I’ve already said too much.
Have I made wrong references or I didn’t refer to anything? Of course, there are times when it’s hard to catch up. I probably haven’t referred properly to a person or thing, so people get confused.
But when I’m already mid-sentence (or mid-paragraph) and asked me, who was it again? what were we talking about? and I have to say it all over – that’s irritating. Being interrupted is annoying enough, let alone repeating it.
My mom once told me, I speak too fast. Maybe that’s why people have trouble catching up with me… hahahaha! Another person said, I’m too slang?! they can’t understand me anymore. For example, the word “comfortable” – instead of saying /kom-for-ta-bol/, I say /komf-ta-bol/. So I guess, they’re right?! I eat my words or letters.
Note to self then:
- Enunciate… (I can’t emphasize enough).
- Speak slowly
- Speak clearly
This is how people get in trouble.
