"But uh..."

I've known a fair number of people over the years who love to talk, as in they talk even when they're not saying anything, or take five minutes to say what could only take one minute. You get the idea.

And I've noticed that a lot of them will stop and then immediately go "But uh..." as if to say "I'm still talking, just need a moment to think of what to say."

Anyone one else notice this?

1. My dad used to say of those people, "That one's a talker! Not much of a sayer, but a real talker!"

2. I call it, "talking just to hear their head rattle".


It's almost like if those people stopped talking, they'd be forced to have a reflective moment and think.

So, to avoid that, they just open their mouths and GO.

Shaddup already!!!
