I have the same feeling...
And the main reason is that people who keep asking usually do not buy !
The best customers are the ones who never ask anything and just order.

Have you thought about setting yourself a time limit? E.g. spend no more than 30 minutes on a customer unless he spent X amount of money.

Every situation is different, but the only thing I've found to sort of work... is that I just start making my responses progressively shorter each time. Some people seem to take a hint, but some don't.

Well, that's more or less tech support does it usually.

For the worst ones, refund them, block them from buying again. Okay, this only works in niche circumstances. But, I have done it. :-)

When I am talking to a customer who is taking up an excess of time or just getting on my nerves real bad, I always have to put them on hold to "take another call." Then I come back on and say I have to take that other call right away. It seems to work pretty well.

It's good not to reply them too fast the second time and other times...
The more they ask the more I'm slow to reply, and I tell them that we have too many messages to reply...
