My Sensei in Virginia, a former street cop, Federal Marshall, and crime investigator, always instructed us in what he called "cop speak".

Said individual would remember the very first thing you said, and contrast that for detail inconsistency with everything ELSE you then said.

Sensei taught us to say things like "I'm highly stressed right now, please let me collect my thoughts and talk with you later."
