Curt: adj. being quick and brief and unexpected and subjectively assumed to be rude and/or impolite

If you say something briefly, quickly, and unexpectedly and are not rudely interrupting someone then you are being curt. Most humans expect someone to be more verbose and diplomatic in their communications and subjectively consider curtness not to be polite and think it is rather rude.

I prefer curtness to long winded explanations and verbose displays but that is my personal preference and I realize that many can’t psychologically tolerate much curtness in their lives because they think it is irritating, disrespectful, and too abrupt.
