I'm the youngest/most junior in my office and often one of my managers will come and give me something to do or change some requirement for a project, then just stand behind my desk repeating the same sentence for 30 minutes to an hour.
It'll be something like:
"So I need you to change this function so that it takes in a CSV of filenames instead of one single filename. The function should take in a CSV of filenames instead of one filename. The function should take a CSV of filenames as its input instead of how it is now, where it just takes a single filename..."
See how annoying that is? So I just keep saying:
"Ok. Ok. Ok. I have all I need to work now. Ok"
But that doesn't stop him from continuing to talk. If I put on headphones or start typing he says:
"Hey I'm not finished!"
…and gets mad and aggressive, and keeps repeating the same sentence. I can't tell why he stops when he eventually does.
What's a work-appropriate way to say "Please stop talking and let me work"?
