If you were interested in showing due respect you wouldn't put words in
my mouth. What I meant in fact was that I have a life to live & work
to do and thus at some point have to stop spending time talking with
someone who is either unable or unwilling to understand what I'm
saying. N.B. I don't say "unable or unwilling to agree with me"
but "unable or unwilling to understand what I'm saying."

You may have the last word, which I'm sure will be very gracious.
