loooongggg winded

Can you identify the most long-winded person in my family?

My dad speaks slowly and repeats a phrase a few times before he finally finishes his sentence. e.g "I went to see that person, that person, i went to see that person in charge......."

My mum repeats the same story to different group of listeners on separate occassions.

My fil seldom repeat his words nor sentences.

My mil normally repeats a story 1+n(n=number of people in the same room) times. She will relate a story to everybody in the living room, then repeats the same story to each and everyone again: 1 time for fil, 1 time for hubby, 1 time for me although all of us are sitting in the same living room. A total of 4 times at least. She even asks the same questions over and over again. My mum does that too but not so frequent.


Next question: How do you stop a long winded person from repeating the same stories?
