I wonder how many awkward things people have said to me I’ve completely forgotten about but still makes someone cringe randomly when they are trying to sleep.

This is an AWESOME experiment to try out by the way. It’s amazing, and tragic, how often people will say they don’t remember.

Worse, it’s amazing how often they’ll say something like “oh my god! I was so mad about that [broken vase, eg.] but I wasn’t mad at you! I was furious at myself for putting it where someone would bump onto it.” And meanwhile we (naturally?) assume everything is about us so we assumed they were angry at us!
