Protract

Protract

<pro-trakt>

too long; prolong; lingering;

something that continues on for a long time beyond the normal length.

He did not protract the song. Everyone was relieved.

Memory trick:
protract reminds of prolong

At work:
Don't protract the sales pitch. Stop talking when they agree to buy.
