76. Zero Tolerance
I've known a number of people who, like Lara, interpret spoken declarations of intent as something I truly intend to do
, and a number of people who assume that such a statement is merely something I may consider doing if i feel like it
. I'm in the former camp, myself, and it's profoundly annoying when trying to make a plan with someone in the latter camp. It can be difficult to be understanding about it, but it's usually just a matter of where different people fall on the continuum of thinking-out-loud; some process thoughts out loud from their starting point, some process them internally and voice them only when fully formed. Still. Mean what you say, people.
Sorry, no nerd references today. :-(
