I know I do this.  I don’t think I mean to, but I do it anyway, so I must think what I have to say matters more than what the person I am with has to say.  I am pretty sure I interrupt everyone, but I bet I am like most men, and I interrupt women more than I do men.  Anyway, it’s become a thing “manterrupting”. It’s personified by Kanye taking the mic away from Taylor.
