I had a second thought about my choice of blog name, “I hope people don’t think I’m being condescending” because that isn’t my intention. (Please give me a heads up if it comes across as such!)
I chose the name for two reasons: 1) in the best sense of when I’ve heard p’s say, “Because I said so.” I’m thinking of when the parent has already had an experience and either wants to encourage or deter the younger from going through it 2.) because it’s word-of-mouth and I’m playing off the “said” part of it.
Then, I really liked what the “um” ended up doing for it (as explained). After the “um, can I speak to a manager please” came out of it, I was reminded how customers really do dread asking for a manager and figured maybe I can blog on that as well! (Helpful tips, how to communicate, etc.)
