I read this more than ten years ago in the Scottish’s Daily Mail zodiac column. But the words stick in my mind even until now. It went something like this:
“For you the hardest word to say is not “sorry”. It is “I don’t know”.
Not sure whether to laugh or to be offended by it. Hits right between the eyes. The oh-so-familiar statements of “Sure, I know”, “Oh I know somebody who knows”, or “I am not sure, but let me find out”.
Things I do to make my life more complicated.
