When this happens and you realise, what’s your strategy?
- Stick to what you are talking about and wait for them to switch over to your topic
- Switch over to what they are taking about and hope they don’t notice
- Point out that you believe you are talking at cross purposes in a non judgemental way
- Shame them into feeling stupid that they were talking about something different than you were
I did this yesterday whilst talking about some trash tv competitive flower arranging show and it turned out I was talking about the American version and then were talking about the uk version!!!
