Please, just listen
I wish I had a dollar for everytime someone I just met didn’t bother to listen to me, and then wondered later why I wasn’t going out of my way to fully express myself to them. If you ignore someone once, you’re going to have to work like hell to get the truth out of them ever again. You will have to work. They won’t do it for you.
I would pay a dollar per time to find out how many people I have accidentally done this to.
