Can you hear me now?

Here's a little nugget of wisdom that can save a lot of grief.

About half of the people you talk to are only listening to you about half of the time.

Expect frequent interruptions, 90-degree turns in the direction of conversation, and having to repeat yourself often.

Once you understand this fact, you can learn to groom those people to give you more of their attention, or just ignore them altogether.
