It’s no secret. I’m always listening to folks. Older people don’t care what people think of what they say and younger ones don’t know enough to care what people think.
Those of us stuck in the middle of old and young, however, are required by statutes and ordinances to watch what we say, how we say it and when we say it. We also have to work to ensure that what we’re saying is what is heard and then, we hope, understood.
Warning: Speaking something to someone may not lead to that someone understanding that something. Our words can confuse.
