I’m watching a football game…

We’re at a friend’s house with several people watching a football game.

There are discussions about players, tactics and strategies going on.

There’s a woman who knows a lot about football and has a lot of knowledge on the subject.

It’s getting painful watching the group of men constantly cut her off and never letting her get a word in.

do the men patiently wait for one another as each one makes his point?

They allow each other to finish or make points. They don’t even acknowledge she’s talking.

I text my husband, who is here, that I saw it happening and he’s made a point to ask her what she was saying and respond to her when others are talking over her which has helped.
