This topic is making me laugh before I even start writing. I have noticed that on social media, just like in life there are people that have to get in the last word. I have learned to let them have it, otherwise the conversation goes on forever. I may be exaggerating just a tad with this example, but then again it could be the truth. Let’s take a look at a Facebook communication. I’ll call the individual, Indie, and I am me.
Indie: Thank you for sharing my post.
Me: My pleasure. It was a good post.
Indie: I really appreciate it.
Me: You are welcome.
Indie: Okay, bye.
Indie: I’ll be in contact.
Me: That’s great.
Indie: Bye then.
Me: (I should have taken the hint from the ‘then’) Bye.
Indie: Thanks again. Bye. (And the next thing I know Indie is logged off)
If only I had realized Indie was a last worder, I would have stopped when she said Okay, bye. Human beings are too funny.

Do you absolutely have to get the last word?
