Presume her repetition as the only snag, not any tacit hesitancy or aversion to referring as some input beneath wrongly suggested.
In telephone calls and emails, my relative told her barrister that already knowing a certain website for lawyer referrals, she preferred a personal referral. He replied that he was thrilled to refer to his law school friend, but still pointlessly repeated this website. All her attempts failed, as they're too subtle and understated. After his 1st repeat, she replied:
Thank you. Noted. I do know of this website. But I hope for personal referral from you, rather than cold-calling from that website's list.
After his 2nd repeat, she replied:
Right. I did mention earlier that I already visited this website.
After his 3rd repeat, she stopped trying, and wretchedly suffered his repetition in silence.
She had to restrain from shrilling the following that'd offend:
- Please do not repeat/stop repeating this that you already told me.
- Please, no need to repeat this.
