I have really low patience for people who drag things on. I’m a 22 year old college student and some of my professors do this, and I don’t even go to their classes anymore because I can learn in 10 minutes what they took 2 hours to teach.

Oddly enough I’ve had the opposite experience, men tend to drag things on a lot longer for me. I honestly think it’s because a lot of men try to explain things to me like I’m a child… because I’m a female? The women in my life tend to be quick witted and know when I get something, whereas a lot of men keep explaining something again and again thinking I don’t get it after I tell them that I do.
