I repeat myself. If I have to repeat myself 3+ times I will just say it really dumb for them

    Repeat myself. If they still don't understand I try to explain it. And if they still don't then I just give up on everything. This traditionally ends with profanities.

    I just assume that they won't understand and don't bother to try again. ._. Sometimes people are stubborn and just don't care enough to try to understand, though.

    Unless you mean mishearing or something like that. In which case, I might repeat myself.

    I also feel the need to state that I misread the title as "Understand me you pants"

        Repeat myself with growing annoyance until I need to take a walk to calm down. It usually goes

        "No, I meant ______"
        "No, you fool. _______"
        "No, you [varying expletives], would you listen to me? ________!!!!"

        Usually I try to redeem myself, but it never works. Best thing to do is awkward penguin out of the room.

        People misunderstand me all the time either because I was mumbling again or because I'm an idiot who doesn't articulate her thoughts very well. I just repeat myself until they understand. It's not a big deal.

        I try to repeat myself. Often times I do this because I don't think people hear me when they don't respond to what I've said.

        I would keep repeating myself until they finally understand. But the more I repeat the more I sound mad :33

        I'll end up sounding like a broken record.

        If it happens for too long though, I'll just throw my hands up and be like "forget it!"

        I would give them a clarification of my statement to avoid misunderstanding. But if they still misunderstand, I have no choice but to stop...

        I just take a deep breath, and repeat myself, and I'll try to speak in a slower voice.

        If it's important to me, and I want them to understand something that I'm trying to point out, then I'll try to explain it in a different way. If its not, tend to make things a little frustrating for them and just stare at them because I get a little discouraged from continuing the conversation and want to make it awkward on them.

          Fox, I do that face to. X)

          It depends on my mood. How I act when i'm being a goof is most amusing of them though, so i'll just go ahead and say that one.

          "No." *repeats*
          "Clean out your ears!" *repeats*
          "FOOOOOOOOOOL!!" *dumbs down*
          At that point, if they still don't understand me, I just say:
          "Okay, What The ****?"

          I usually revert to hyperboles to demonstrate a point. If they don't get it after that, then I consider them insincere about the conversation, unless they point out some hole in my hyperbole which means they're listening but being difficult.

            I change my wording around to clarify myself, use examples, metaphors, or draw similarities to other things to help others understand me.

            I stare at people and make them feel uncomfortable until they feel the need to pretend they understood me so we can move on with the conversation.

            If I felt like I was mumbling when I first said it - sure, I'll repeat what I just said, once. Twice I'll start to get annoyed.

            If I'm sure I was talking clearly - then I'll repeat, but I'll start getting annoyed already.

            So basically, I'll repeat what I said, to a point (I think three repeats is my limit), but I'll probably get louder and angrier with each repeat. I hate repeating myself, usually. :P And if the person still doesn't get it...well. I think then that's time for angry sigh and then trying to find another way to get my point across. Or else I'll just give up.

            I repeat myself, probably 3-4 times changing the way I explain something every time I repeat myself (so technically not repeating I guess xD) but eventually if they still don't get it I'll get irritated and give up and it will bother me for the next 5 minutes.
