Loud Talkers...

You know who you are. Why do you do it? For attention? To feel cool? To get your point out? Why? Your so fucking annoying. Some people are annoying to be funny, but you people are annoying every time you open your mouth. I can hear you accross a crowded loud room. Stop it.

You with the diminutive lungs;

Stop whispering!


Sometimes people talk loudly to get someone else’s attention who is far away. Or the person can’t hear well. I tend to talk quietly and/or mumble, and people are always telling me to speak up. At least I’m loud onstage, but that can be a good thing…for that situation.

Just quietly tell these people to pipe down, or just grin and bare it (and go insane). Loud people bug me on airplanes. Once this old man was telling his life story to two strangers sitting by him. They were sitting right behind me and I was trying to read a book for school. The man sitting next to me was slowly going crazy from this loud man and was banging his head on the seat in front of him and muttering under his breath.

The hearing suggestion makes sense, but anything else is uncalled for.

I can also understand talking loudly to get someone’s attention. What I’m talking about are people who are right in front of you and there talking to you like your a group of 1000 people in a auditorium or some shit.

I am, on occasion, a loud talker. I simply do not notice the volume of my voice. I need my wife and my friends to let me know, which they do in nice ways (they are very nice to me) when my voice has reached unacceptable limits. This does not happen very often but I have no notice of it at all … even when I try to pay attention to it.

I have a fairly loud voice out of necessity. If I talked at the level I’d like to, you couldn’t understand me.

This comes from working in environments which have a lot of background noise. I have to compete with ringing telephones and patient callboxes, monitors which beep, and a lot of other people talking around me. Consequently, I have adopted a rather loudish voice. I know I carry it outside work, but give me a little while, and I’ll turn the volume down a little.

And, yes, I have had my hearing tested, and it’s above normal. :stuck_out_tongue:


Darling, I’m sorry, but for me it’s either talk loud or use sign language, and I don’t know sign language yet.

Well, I’m naturally a loud talker. Sorry. Nothing I can do about it, and furthermore, I don’t WANT to do anything about it.

I hate UP talkers…you know…People who always end their sentences with a question?

Because they think you will understand easier?
Even though it makes them sound like Stepford Wives?
And I want to rip out their larynx?

I’m confused?

You’re physically incapable of modulating the volume level of your voice?

If that’s a legitimate medical problem, you’re forgiven. If not, you’re an inconsiderate, selfish bitch and I hope you lose your voice forever.

In my experience, the people who talk the loudest (without medical reasons) tend to be the people who have the least to say. Nobody will listen to them if they talk at normal levels, so they shout, thereby forcing everyone to listen. Somebody needs to give these assholes a good, strong slap upside their fugly heads.

Is this a matching skit for Seinfeld’s Low Talker?

I confess, I’m a loud talker.

Don’t mean to be, really. I’m basically just not aware of the volume of my voice.

There have been many times when I have been talking in a “hushed” tone, then been accused of shouting what I had to say to the universe at large.

On the flip side, I also have a problem with people telling me that they can’t hear me, when I’m sitting right next to them. This happens most often when I’m at work, in a very noisy environment, yelling at the top of my lungs to be heard, I’ve had people swear they can’t hear me, or tell me to stop mumbling. But I’ve also had it happen in social situations, particularly if there’s a TV on, or a lot of people around talking.

Go figure.

I thought it was the matching thread to “Close Talker”.

No one ever keeps me up to date.

I’m not a loud talker, you’re a soft listener.

NOUN : A manner of speaking in which declarative sentences are uttered with a rising intonation as though they were questions.


"Your pitch is the highness or lowness of your voice.  Generally lower pitches are easier to listen to than high pitches.  A high pitch, however, may convey excitement (such as in a scream) or surprise.  One particular problem with pitch is known as uptalk.  Uptalk is an upward inflection at the end of statements that conveys the notion that the speaker is uncertain of what he or she is saying.  Uptalk occurs naturally when asking a question, in fact, that is one of the ways that questions are formed.  Think of the difference between the statement, “You’re doing it” and the question, “You’re doing it?”
