I do this sometimes to dp but then I realise and say sorry because he has pulled me up on it many times. For me its mostly because I blurt it out trying not to forget what I was going to say, often I will forget what I was going to say while listening to dp, apparently my brain can't handle remembering 2 things at once, haha

I use to be that person. I would hate when I did it but knew if I didn't I would forget what I was saying. I would always apologize and tell the other person to continue once I had finished though.
I have a friend noe that sounds a lot like your hubby. It drives me crazy. Not even about what we are talking about and doesn't apologize and tell me to continue what I was saying. I just sit there and give her death stares until she is finished then I just continue what I was saying. Can't stand it. So rude. Like what I'm saying isn't important enough for her to even be paying attention. At least when I would do it ,it would be on topic.

My Mum does this, but I'm not sure it's interrupting as such, just she doesn't find what I, or the group, are talking about interesting, so butts in and changes the subject. I hate it. And she wonders why I don't talk to her much. Years of being shut down has made me think she doesn't give a sh!t about me or my life.
I've tried to pull her up on it, and she just looks a me, so I've given up. OP, I'd have a chat with him and ask if he realises how often her does this, and tell him how it makes you feel. If he persists, then I'd either walk away when he does it, or put your hand up to stop him, and ask him to let you finish.
He may not realise he's doing it. Lots of people forget about common courtesy and etiquette these days. Or maybe his parents are interrupters and never taught him to wait his turn!

That would do my head in...Like he doesn't value what you have to say...talk to him like you would one of your children. Like "excuse me, I haven't finished yet." or as one other bub hubber said, walk off while he is talking. Interrupting is just as bloody rude. Good luck!

My mum does it, so I just get louder and finish what I'm saying. She gets ****ty all the time though because IM not listening.
That and her attitude towards a couple of other things had made me distance myself from her

A lot of the time I do tell him to be quiet and let me finish. We end up in a massive argument about it. His mum interrupts too though not as bad. If I interrupt him ( which I do just to show him what it's like) omg...he gets in a ****ty mood.
I might buy some duct tape.

Take a tally on the fridge every time he does it, make it visual to him.

Show him this thread so he can see that it's universally considered rude and annoying so that he realises you aren't just nitpicking - you're actually doing him a favour by drawing his attention to this and encouraging him to change.
He will be annoying more than yourself with this behaviour. If he works on it he will find people respond to him better in all aspects of his life.
