Once I was in a bar, talking about the night club where I worked, and saying how useful it is to talk to drunk people as though they are children. A drunk person at the bar took umbrage with this, viewing it as condescending (not at all!), but we worked it out. Listen - language and communication are skills acquired, and even someone you’ve known for a long time who is fluent in your own tongue will misunderstand you (and you them), at some point. Here are some excellent methods that come in handy every day with everyone - I try to read this book every few years to stay on the ball with the techniques - it’s invaluable.— Susan
