Interrupting is Rude; Changing the Topic at the Same Time is Ruder Yet

To any man who happens to be reading this: A word of advice...
When you are with a woman and she is talking, do not just talk right over her, changing the subject. It's rude. And not just a little rude, very, very rude. Ruder than just simply interrupting.

Let me explain why...
1) The first layer of rude is interrupting as it implies her words are not worth listening to.
2) The second layer of rude is the subject change as it implies not only were you not listening to her but were busy thinking of a new topic of conversation instead.

So, men, if you don't want to imply to the woman you are conversing with that she is an insignificant nothing who should just shut up because nobody wants to hear what she has to say anyway (or even if you simply don't want to get hit), don't do it.
