Bringing German Efficiency to Parlance
So, here's my problem.
Many people love to talk. But, many of these people are also very boring.
e.g. "So, I was at the store last tuesday, or maybe it was wednesday, no, definitely tuesday, yeah, 'cause it was right after she called me about that thing, anyway..."
And yet, if I spin my finger to get people to skip to the point, they are rightfully insulted.
So, I am looking for us to develop a universal symbol or phrase to signal the speaker that "this train of thought is unnecessary to the point."
Obviously, teaching the world the life skill of empathizing with the listener would be a more mutually beneficial long-term solution, but in the short-term, I'm just looking to get out of some of these avoidable time wasters.
