Have you had any experience talking to someone with shifty eyes? I have! …. And I don’t like it at all! Nuh-uh….eyes moving left and right as I am trying to have a decent conversation? No way!
I once read that people with shifty eyes convey the message of distrust, insincerity and lack of interest. I find it so distracting when in the course of conversation, as I am trying to explain something, the person I am conversing with has his or her eyes moving left and right. It’s not that their head is moving, just the eyes! I’m not sure if it’s a habit or not, but if it is, it is a habit that ought to be nipped!
Looking away from a person’s face once in a while during the conversation is acceptable, perhaps as an *intermission* to gather one’s thoughts but to shift one’s glance briefly and then shift back to the conversant in a repetitive manner, that’s just what I would retort with a “How rude!”, in the style of PB. So tell me, am I just plain fussy or am I making sense?
