I understand. — Empathy, part 2: an effective active-listening phrase when you don’t really want to listen to somebody (“too much information”), but don’t want to sound rude. Laughs c/o sitcom Two and a Half Men, 1st season, 7th episode.
I put together tips and a language exercise on active listening here.
Thanks Anne, keep ’em comin’
So funny! and I love the “too much information” expression! I find it very funny too. I think I’m going to look for two and a half men on a DVD! Thanks!
