I think that I figured something out about what some people mean when they say “You’re talking too fast; I can’t understand you” when I call them on the phone and need their help. What they mean is “As soon as I heard from your voice that you were female, I started only half-listening to you. I can’t understand you when you speak as quickly as you do and I’m also only half-listening and don’t care what you have to say.”
