RE: I hate my teammates!
Okay I have a new thought. Maybe they have a different idea about what is a "short" pause in a conversation. Like you are from New York City and they are from Atlanta. So you say something, and they don't reply in a "reasonable" time frame, so you say something else.

You are thinking: "Why don't they say something? I have to carry the whole conversation!"

They are thinking: "Why won't he wait for me to reply? He won't shut up! I can't get a word in edgewise."

Next time, say something, and no matter what, don't say anything else until after someone else speaks. See what happens.
