You can't expect someone else to read your mind. How are they supposed to know what you want - especially when you are not even sure yourself that you know what it is that you do want! It may be considered impolite to express a desire or make a request. But surely, it is even more anti-social just to sit around hoping that someone is going to guess what we are thinking and feeling - and then to start becoming resentful because they haven't managed to read us clearly. Today: if in doubt, speak out.
