Do you always need to get the last word?

Asked by jealoustome (1514 points ) March 15th, 2010

I didn’t realize I was a “last-worder” until my husband pointed it out. Now, I realize it’s almost like a compulsion. I’ve been working on it, but it’s tough.

Earlier, I was participating in another question on Fluther, but decided to take myself out of the discussion because I didn’t like the tone that the discussion was taking. However, I want sooooo much to go back and address some statements that I find to be completely erroneous. I really, really want to get the last word, but, of course, that could go on forever and I really wouldn’t get the satisfaction I seek. Do you ever have this problem?

I’m not much of an arguer, so I can usually let most things go. Usually by the time the argument gets drug out long enough, the person getting the last word just looks like an idiot.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

No,not really.nope ;)

partyparty's avatar

I love to hear the words ‘yes dear’ then the conversation is ended

Silhouette's avatar

No I don’t need the last word in fact sometimes I don’t need a word at all.

bob_'s avatar

Yes.

Bluefreedom's avatar

No, I sure don’t.

sleepdoc's avatar

I find when it is something I feel needs to be championed I tend to be a last word kind of person.

njnyjobs's avatar

Not always, but sometimes, a particular topic may spark extreme passion, in which case I probably would attempt to have the last word if I have the time and energy to go through with it.

ucme's avatar

Quite the reverse is true with me.If a conversation or whatever is clearly going nowhere in terms of agreement, i’ll extinguish any interest I may have had.Now watch the clamour to be the last word ensue,inevitable.

Snarp's avatar

Sometimes I get quite stressed about it when I want to do a complete logical take down on someone online. Usually I have a great argument and really want to lay it on them, but I know deep down inside that they are not going to listen anyway, so even knowing that I would “win”, they’ll just repeat the same crap and we get nowhere. So I usually stop before the other guy, and sometimes it boils inside me wanting to get out, but you’ve got to stop at some point, I try to find something else to think about and go get some exercise, and I try to remember that I’ve already made my point, the person I’m arguing with is just ignoring it, and any one with half a brain has seen it and doesn’t need me to say it again.

jealoustome's avatar

@jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities I’ve definitely said idiotic things in my attempt to get the last word. Usually, this results in my husband and I having a good laugh.

@Snarp I’m with you. The online arguments really get to me sometimes. But, you’re right. They aren’t listening to or acknowledging my point of view.

CMaz's avatar

Yes I do. Just as a matter of principle.

And, because I am usually right. ;-)

If you get the last word in. It is out of respect.

Val123's avatar

@ChazMaz No, you don’t.

CMaz's avatar

What do you mean? ;-)

KatawaGrey's avatar

Lady, you have just opened a can of worms.

CMaz's avatar

Right.

jealoustome's avatar

@KatawaGrey Oh, no! I had no idea. I should have researched this first. Oh, well. Guess, I’ll just have to hope that some kind of meaningful discussion will occur here, not just a bunch of one word answers.

Yep. :)

cockswain's avatar

My wife tries to get the last word in a lot. I’ve pointed it out to her, and she’s getting better about it. Frequently she’ll say something silly, so that ends the whole thing cheerfully.

Trillian's avatar

I’ll walk away after having made my point. Forcing another person to acknowledge something is not well done. And casting my pearls before swine is an exercise in futility for all concerned. My pearls get muckied up, and the swine does not have the capacity to appreciate them, so….
Also, I get frustrated if someone is deliberately misunderstanding what I say just to be adversarial, and I can get sucked way in before I realize that the other person is just… being that way.

DominicX's avatar

Sometimes. I’d say more often than not, but certainly not all the time. And this is mostly online, I mean, really, this kind of thing never comes up in real life. Let’s just say that I debate with a lot of people who say “hmph! I’m leaving!” and then come right back. At least I never lie and say I’m “done” when I’m not. If I say I’m done, then it’s the truth. I will not be coming back.

jealoustome's avatar

@cockswain Your wife sounds like an awesome lady. I bet you feel really lucky to have her.

Val123's avatar

OK. This is a 7 word answer.

Seriously though, the only time I really, really feel I need to get the last word in is when there person I’m debating with is trying to justify some crappy thing they’ve done, or are going to do. Other times, an argument may be so stupid that I have no problem with just shaking my head and walking away.

ninjacolin's avatar

i only ever want to figure out what makes sense. i’m very content to tell someone that they’ve made a good point. i don’t mind having the last word this way, but i tend to dislike having the last word when i might be right about something, makes me feel self-conscious.

Val123's avatar

We all oughta quit answering now and leave @ninjacolin feeling all self-conscious FOREVER!!!!

Coloma's avatar

I think there is a big dif. between sharing/examining other perspectives vs. debating and the egos need to be right.

Maybe it’s a maturity thing, but I am not at all invested in convincing another of my rightness. Who cares?

Besides, very few things can be couched in a right/wrong, polarity.

I am in a discussion to share and learn and observe others thoughts and opinions….‘winning’ is not conducive to understanding.

Not to say I might not, on rare occasion, tell someone I think they are being an ass, but not invested in any sort of validation.

This would be most likely in regards to blatent racism, sexism, etc.

rangerr's avatar

Sometimes.

jealoustome's avatar

@Coloma You sound very mature. I agree that it’s an ego game. I think the reason I like to have the last word is most often because of a perceived sense of injustice. Mostly, I’ll think the other person said something about me or my reasoning that is false or unfair and I’ll want to rectify that with “facts.”

jonsblond's avatar

I’m just going to sit here and listen watch.

janbb's avatar

Funny how many people are posting now – trying to get in the last word on this question!

rangerr's avatar

@janbb No idea what you’re talking about.

Val123's avatar

@janbb I’m not!

wundayatta's avatar

Naw. My first words are generally so good, that anything that comes after is besides the point. just kidding

There have been times when I wanted to go on and on, but I realized that all I wanted to do was explore the topic and once that was done, I didn’t need to defend anything I learned. I also think that whoever says something first gets the most attention. No one really pays much attention to replies. In saying things first, it is important to be creative. That way it’s easier to think of things no one else said.

I’m not sure where my feelings truly lie. I do know that I tend not to defend things. Then again, I tend not to participate in debates. I like stories. I do get involved in health care issues, but once again, I usually say something once, and maybe one or two replies, but that’s it. After that, it’s all repetition. If I haven’t made my point by then, I never will.

It’s good practice for getting it right the first time. Of course, that means I write a lot. I tend to follow a lot of different trains of thought instead of just making one pithy reply. But I don’t care if people read it. I enjoy the thinking.

LostInParadise's avatar

Definitely not. If you are arguing with an idiot, the best thing to do is to smile politely and walk away.

A great technique for handling a nagger, who may be someone near and dear, is to agree with everything. It is very difficult to hold an argument with someone who agrees with you.

rangerr's avatar

@Val123 You are too.

Coloma's avatar

@jealoustome

Yes, sticking to the facts is always a good approach, but hey, everyones imperfect and ego can slam dunk the most easy going person at times. lol

@wundayatta Yes, me too…stories over debate. :-)

Val123's avatar

@rangerr You know you’re wrong!

rangerr's avatar

@CyanoticWasp I’m way too stubborn for this.

njnyjobs's avatar

@rangerr yup, I can see that.

jealoustome's avatar

Well, I think you all have perfectly illustrated the immaturity aspect of getting the last word. :)

wundayatta's avatar

This reminds me of something I did on a prior social network/question and answer site. I had noticed that my answers seemed to kill a number of discussions, which I thought was odd (and still do). So I wrote a question asking about who was the best question killer on the site. There ensued a competition to kill my question—as people would go back to it time and time again over the months that followed.

Of course, I left the site and haven’t been back except to mine some old correspondences. I’m sure that someone else now holds the honor of killing the discussion. I wonder if the same thing will happen here—with everyone trying to sneak in the last word.

janbb's avatar

sneak “the last word”

Disc2021's avatar

Yes and no. There are times where I’m too emotionally invested in a heated discussion to think about it. Usually when this happens, I return to apologize or try to exit before things get too heavy.

Usually I just try to state my opinion relative to the facts and when I realize each side just begins rehashing their original point after awhile, I just withdraw and agree to disagree.

@Val123 No it wouldn’t!!

Fred931's avatar

Don’t start that kind of stuff, because then everyone will develop into rubber and the harsh comments will just be thrown around indefinitely and that’s the adverb form of infinity and I don’t like infinity because thinking about it makes my brain hurt so please don’t start an infinite loop, OK?

* Takes deep, dramatic breath *

rangerr's avatar

@rangerr You are so cool.

davidbetterman's avatar

Hey, you just cooled yourself!!!

Nope, but I am watching Mulan right now.

Major awws.

“The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.”

rangerr's avatar

You don’t meet a girl like that in every dynasty.

bob_'s avatar

Eh, it’s China. If they say you’re one in a million, that just means there are a thousand people just like you.

davidbetterman's avatar

Did you see Raise the Red Lantern?

bob_'s avatar

Did not.

rangerr's avatar

No clue what that even is.

bob_'s avatar

Gotta love Wikipedia. I couldn’t remember what life was like without it… until I read the Wikipedia article about it.

CMaz's avatar

Word to your mother.

davidbetterman's avatar

Is she feeling better?

rangerr's avatar

Oh, you saw her too? I thought I wore her out.

davidbetterman's avatar

She was wore out when you finished, but said she was willing to go on…and on..and on

CMaz's avatar

Have the mod’s given up on this post? :-)

davidbetterman's avatar

Do you mean have the mods given up on mother?

rangerr's avatar

Auggie is my mother.

Thank you.

You’re Welcome, I’m sure…

bob_'s avatar

rangerr's avatar

bob_'s avatar

Sounds like you have a gambling problem.

rangerr's avatar

I don’t bet on dead horses, though.

CMaz's avatar

bob_'s avatar

You calling Val an “it”?

Val123's avatar

No. Here it is. “Mares eat oats and does eat oats and little lambs eat ivy. A kid’ll eat ivy too, wouldn’t you.” Go away Bob. On second thought…I’m going to wait until your answer posts…there it is. I’m not an It!!

bob_'s avatar

* pulls Val’s hair *

Val123's avatar

kicks bob in the shin

bob_'s avatar

* accidently trips and lands on Val *

Val123's avatar

Val doesn’t even notice because she’s eating the tastiest burrito in the world and bob is just a stick person, so it’s like getting hit by a Popsicle stick.

bob_'s avatar

@Val123 I’ve got your stick right here, pal!

Val123's avatar

Try and try. You’ll never out pre-post me…................. ....... ........ ......

Snarp's avatar

Allright, that’s all I can stand, I’m unfollowing this one.

bob_'s avatar

Another one bites the dust.

Val123's avatar

Another one’s gone and another one’s gone….bye bye bob! You’re next.

davidbetterman's avatar

Well I’ll be darned. I was just thinking of the maresydoats thing the other day!

bob_'s avatar

What thing?

davidbetterman's avatar

“Mares eat oats and does eat oats ..”

Fred931's avatar

That thing.

bob_'s avatar

That’s a nice song.

Val123's avatar

It’s an OLD song.

rangerr's avatar

Sixteen Candles is on. So cute.

Val123's avatar

I’m scanning an expense report that’s even cuter!

bob_'s avatar

My expense account is taking quite a hit from this NY trip.

rangerr's avatar

<stretch>

CMaz's avatar

<bend over>

rangerr's avatar

Whoa there..

davidbetterman's avatar

Whoa Nellie!!!

rangerr's avatar

Nellie? Like from Little House?
She was a bitch.

davidbetterman's avatar

I like to give her a switch!

rangerr's avatar

Gross.

Val123's avatar

@davidbetterman You don’t even know.

davidbetterman's avatar

A gross is always 144…Aren’t you a teacher? You should know this stuff…

rangerr's avatar

She’s a mommy.
A weird mommy.

davidbetterman's avatar

Very strange mummy…

bob_'s avatar

You’re all weird.

rangerr's avatar

We’re all weird.

davidbetterman's avatar

Speak for yourselves, weirdos…

bob_'s avatar

I’m not that weird.

davidbetterman's avatar

Sure you are…don’t be so shy…

rangerr's avatar

You are… really.

davidbetterman's avatar

Really willy nilly….

bob_'s avatar

Ah well.

davidbetterman's avatar

Not indeed…as I have won!

bob_'s avatar

Nuh-uh. Noobs.

davidbetterman's avatar

I wish you had boobs…

bob_'s avatar

Um, okay? This is awkward.

rangerr's avatar

I have boobs!

bob_'s avatar

@rangerr Pics or it never happened.

bob_'s avatar

Whoa. Harsh.

Ivan's avatar

why am I just now seeing this thread

rangerr's avatar

Because you’re not creeping on me well enough.

bob_'s avatar

@Ivan It’s called being a noob.

rangerr's avatar

@bob_ He totally is.

davidbetterman's avatar

Another noob dropped in, eh…He must be a Russkie!

bob_'s avatar

@rangerr Totally.

Fred931's avatar

This thread is about to surpass the original coherent story thread. Just a heads-up.

Fred931's avatar

You have all just thought about The Game and therefore have lost it. I just lost The Game, too.

FutureMemory's avatar

too long;didn’t read

Fred931's avatar

That isn’t a surprise.

CMaz's avatar

There you have it.

bob_'s avatar

You win… at losing.

davidbetterman's avatar

You lose…at winning!

OperativeQ's avatar

You’re ugly and your momma dresses you funny.

bob_'s avatar

Your momma undresses me funnily.

rangerr's avatar

I win at everything because I’m the lady in this conversation.

CMaz's avatar

So true.

rangerr's avatar

D’awwww.

bob_'s avatar

Tom Jones is old as dirt.

rangerr's avatar

So is dirt.

bob_'s avatar

True that.

bob_'s avatar

Fa ril.

Fred931's avatar

I lost the game. I probably will every time I visit this thread.

Fred931's avatar

So, in that case, if you don’t want to lose The Game again, you could just not visit this thread ever again, which would also give me title of Last Word Giver.

bob_'s avatar

Was that supposed to be funny?

bob_'s avatar

Yes, he is.

Val123's avatar

SHIT!!! Ivan found us!

bob_'s avatar

@Val123, @rangerr said you’re not a lady.

davidbetterman's avatar

But Tom Jones says you are!!! (Val that is)

bob_'s avatar

Old people say the craziest of things.

Val123's avatar

@davidbetterman You know, I love that song, but…listening to it from a perspective of 30 years later you hear things like, “She’s never in the way” and “She always knows her place…” It’s like SLAP!!

Young people are too skinny, like stick people.

FutureMemory's avatar

I like the color purple.

Val123's avatar

@FutureMemory No. You can’t have it. It’s mine. My favorite color.

rangerr's avatar

You said I’m not a lady?
:(

davidbetterman's avatar

Lost Party @rangerr‘s tonight…don’t be lost late.

rangerr's avatar

davidbetterman's avatar

Hip Hop Hooray!

Val123's avatar

@rangerr No way little lady. You’re too young. Now get back to them dishes.

davidbetterman's avatar

She can’t be too young. She has a swimming pool!

rangerr's avatar

I’m not too young!

Val123's avatar

Yes you are. Are the dishes done?

rangerr's avatar

Yes, mother..

Ivan's avatar

Ivan's avatar

No really, it was the 700th…

Val123's avatar

Ivan…what are all the subsets of (ABC)?

Val123's avatar

GOOD NIGHT!!!

rangerr's avatar

Old ladies go to sleep early…

davidbetterman's avatar

She needed to get her rest before tonight’s Lost PartAY!!!!!

bob_'s avatar

No, @rangerr, you said (well, implied) that @Val123 wasn’t a lady when you said you were the only lady following this thread.

ben's avatar

Yes.

That’s how it’s done. :)

andrew's avatar

Yes.

That’s how it’s done.
