So, I'm talking to dh, and he goes, "Blah blah blah..." while making a little talking hand puppet gesture...

  Dh is bad about not listening to me. He'll sometimes talk over me, or cut me off, or just act as if he can't even hear me. Or, even if he doesn't do that, later I will mention it again and he's like, "WHAT?! You didn't tell me that?!" Uh, yes I did! If you would just LISTEN you would know that.

  Last night I was trying to explain something to him, and he had turned his back and didn't appear to even hear me, so I try explaining it further, hoping it will sink in to his thick skull, then he says, "Blah blah blah... Why do you have to talk so much. Just get to the point!" while making this talking hand puppet gesture to demonstrate my apparently 'annoying' talkativeness.

  I said, "You're rude and mean. Is that to the point?" He laughed, not thinking I could ACTUALLY be offended by what he said. Then he came over to the couch and was trying to kiss me and hold hands and be lovey like he didn't just really insult me. angryThe whole night he seemed really confused as to why his comment would offend me and why I was still mad. I explained it, of course, as concisely as I could, but he just doesn't seem to get it, just like he doesn't seem to get 80% of what I say.

i'm sorry that he did that.  i have to admit, though, i do that to my husband.  it takes him 20 minutes to tell a 2 minute story & i lose all interest listening to him ramble.  i will tell him, "you're gonna have to get to the point, i'm losing interest fast".  i don't think it hurts his feelings...i sure don't intend for it to.maybe you ramble a little bit too???

Ugh. My DH interrupts me all the time, the only reason I can stand it is because I don't think he does it intentionally, and he usually apologizes when I scold him, lol. But that "blah, blah blah" shit? I'd be pissed as hell, too! That's super disrespectful!

No, dh does not do that to me. Yes, I would be irritated if he did. Turn about is fair play, quit listening to him. Do the same crap to him a couple time and then point out that it is frustrating.

 I tend to " talk to much at my husband", and I have to remember that men don't have the same attention span that women do. Men tend to tell us what went on in a 24 hour day in less then 2 minutes, where I,.....and women want to tell our husbands a play by play of every minute. Ive learned to just get to the point and realized if I keep it short and sweet he listens more and carries on the conversation with more of a attentive ear.

I think the main point is, though, whether OP rambles or not, it's still rude as hell to cut her off like that, lol. He could have been respectful about it, if he had to say something!

 Exactly, besides they were three very SHORT paragraphs. Plus, the only reason I kept talking to him was because he didn't seem to hear me and I wanted it to sink in.
