    As opposed to talking normally?

    Why the **** do they do this?

    Like they think the other person cannot hear them?

    They're talking to one person and they shout like they're saying it louder for the people in the back. What the ****?

    I've addressed it with them but it's honestly just the way they are; so backwards and terrible with technology and tragic at talking to people in a polite and acceptable manner.

    Like my mum was just on the phone to my aunt and she starts shouting her words and talking in such a vicious tone and it pisses me the **** off. Calm the **** down.

    My dad talks SO loudly on the phone too. It basically is shouting but they must think they're talking normally when in reality they sound passive aggressive as ****.


    No idea.

    My Jamaican Nan does the same.

    My entire family talks loud, people think we're arguing but that's just the way we are. Sometimes, we mix 3 languages but we understand each other 😂

    My parent's are the same. Maybe because they are 'uneducated'. That's what my dad says when I ask. I'm not tryna put asian parent's down btw.
