  • Just keep trying. He’ll come around eventually.

  • Call him out on it. If he isn’t listening, he needs to shape up!

  • Try saying the same thing in a variety of different ways to get the point across.

  • Be more direct and never assume he knows what you want from context clues. Focus on communicating, not just talking.
