My brother and mom do this thing where they answer an adjacent question rather than what you are actually asking, even after repeated attempts to elicit the answer.

I think it’s out of a misguided sense of trying to help by guessing what it is “really” being asked, but it almost always muddies and slows down communication with additional iterations.

Have you ever dealt with this successfully? How?
