Let me explain it to you
one last time.
If you don't let me finish
what I'm saying,
you aren't listening
to the question I'm asking.
When I ask politely
to please let me finish,
don't give me attitude
as if you're too busy
or important to deal with me.
I'm not trying to make your life difficult,
in fact, quite the opposite.
I'm probably trying
to give you information
you might not be aware of.
I'm asking a question
because I'm trying
to make things easier.
If you listen before you speak
my suggestions might help us both,
because if you're happy
you won't be making
my life miserable.
So do us both a favor
and don't make me
explain it to you again.
