    It doesn't make things "all better" but understanding ups the chances of stating your side in a way that the other one can understand your point.

    Much respect. Understanding does not make things better. Nor does stating our side. How does it up our chances? It continues day after day. Month after month. Year after year. 50 plus yrs of this. Still waiting. Not happening.

    Totally agree. Those who have not been in our shoes do not understand. How can they? I gave up on this recently with my last job. Just so done with that.

    I say that all the time at work; it's just another way of saying "I didn't hear you."
