I hear you loud and clear. I too for decades used to get very frustrated
that persons would not hear or could not understand or would not attempt
to apprehend what I was trying to say.
Now I view this phenomenon as being part and parcel of the human
condition - and I have been and tend to be a transgressor too.
More recently, due to aging process I believe, I have become reconciled
to the fact of life that rarely anybody, except mama perhaps will really
hear, understand or empathize with us.
