I'd say "be quiet please". If this doesn't work I'd say "shut up!" But if I am in a debate and there are more people I'd say "let me finish, please", or "can I please finish?". When I'm speaking with friends I always say "hold on". It always work :) Hope this helps. Alonso


I believe is more polite to say: Let me finish, please.

You can say "shut up!", or more polite: "Would you please be quiet!".

If you want phrasing your words:

  • 'You are talking my ear off'
  • 'it is best when you say nothing at all'
