The usual reply is “Give it a few years”. No thanks, I won’t be giving it a few years. Just because you’ve said that line doesn’t mean I’ve automatically changed my mind just like that, my choice isn’t switching a light bulb on and off.
The majority of people can think of something and not say it. Sadly, this doesn’t include me. Sometimes words fly out my mouth before I’ve had time to think about what I’m saying or the impact it’s about to have on the person/people I’m talking to.
