Welcome to week 51 of Sunday Poser
My question this week is;
If you didn’t hear it the first time, do you ask people to repeat what they just said or make your own assumption about what they just said?
For me, this is a very common issue. Perhaps it’s my age or the over-use of artificial sweeteners, but if someone speaks very softly, or there is a lot of noise around me, I completely fail to capture what was just said. The next step depends on where I am. If I am with family, I’ll ask them to say it again. If even then I don’t get it, I just work out in my mind what they might have been saying!
With my husband I am more frank, I would ask him to speak up and be more clear. But he does the same to me too. He is five years older than me and perhaps we both are a bit hard of hearing!
When I am among strangers, I do ask them to repeat once, and if I am none the wiser, I just either ignore it or try to imagine what was said.
What about you?
How do you tackle this problem?
