When to Say When


I read this quote today and I’m curious if you agree or disagree.

If you have an important point to make, don’t try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time – a tremendous whack.

 Winston Churchill
I guess when someone makes the same point over and over, the mere sound of their voice makes me want to roll my eyes. People who say or post the same idea everytime they open their mouth or type a phrase are a big turn off for me. I feel like someone goes from making a point to shoving it down my throat. I have to hold myself back from shaking my fists and screaming, we get it already, give it a rest. 

What do you think? When is enough enough? Do people even know anymore?

    My father-in-law does this shit all the time. Whenever he comes over, he talks about how they didn’t smooth out the edge of the patio right if we bring up the patio as a subject. I don’t know if it’s the same thing but hammering in the same story over and over again gets annoying. Though, in his case, I understand it a bit more because his memory hasn’t been the same since the motorcycle accident.
