Don’t tell me.

don't tell me

Where one word ends with /t/ and the next starts with the same sound, just keep the first in for a split second, making a very slight stop between them, but without moving your tongue. Notice the stress is on “tell”, not “me”.

This either means you’re expecting the news to be bad, or you think you know what the person is going to say, as in “Don’t tell me, let me guess.” Either way, use a low key, as you’re clearly not excited.
