Do you let people tell you a story more than once?


I have a hard time letting people go on without mentioning it.

Good Stories are like fine wine. They can gain character and take on subtle changes with age. As long as what's pouring out the bottle is enjoyable, why complain?

It depends on if its a good story or not and if its my grandma or not. Granny can tell me a story as many times as she wants

depends on who is telling the story, how many times I've heard it, how unimportant it is. My mother in law tells me the same 5 stories about my husband every time I see her. I just listen, but it's painful.

My dad does it a lot. My mother in law does it constantly but she has dementia and doesn't remember something she said five minutes ago

Can you listen to a good song multiple times and still enjoy it?

Stories were the primary way people communicated things for most of history. The accomplished storyteller always had a place of welcome around the fire. Even if the story had been told a thousand times (and the best ones had, and became part of our cultural identities), the troubadour or the grizzled Captain could tell the story in a way that held the wee ones entranced, filled the young lads with a thirst for glories past, and brought nostalgic smiles to the old men who knew how the tale ended.

Stories are meant to be told over and over.

Most of the time I let them tell me again. Every now and then I will say that I remember you telling me that!

Depends on how much time I have. At work, no, I will say you already told me that. Sometimes I do it too, so I don't mind being told.

If it is an old man telling me about Normandy or something, of course.

If it is my girlfriend telling me about her 11th birthday party at someone's lakehouse, absolutely not.

The worst is when you know if you mention something to them, it will illicit the same story no matter what. I can't mention a guys name to one of my friends without him telling the same story. It is fairly long and no matter how I try to reign him in, he still tells the whole story.

I often let them tell it again, just to see if anything changes or gets exaggerated, so I can call them out on changing the story when they are through.

I sometimes wonder if my mother in law has the beginnings of dementia. Her short term memory is incredibly impaired, like nothing I've seen before.

I usually listen again. Then I wonder how often I tell the same damn story over and over.

if they are old, yes

if they are younger, I finish the story for them and then mention that they have told it once before!
