My husband uses it with me, but not mockingly. My issue isn’t being flustered but my ADHD (inattentive type), especially if I’ve forgotten to take my adderall. My thoughts will go so fast that I’ll brainfart on a word, but struggle to think of the word because my train of thought just keeps barreling on, so it’s like going back to fix something that passed on an assembly line while also keeping pace with the rest of the line.
“Use your words” forces me to pause the belt, fix the mistake, and then start back up. Otherwise I just get frustrated because that one word is messing it all up and slowing everything down, dammit!
