How considerate is it to be considerate? I tried thinking about it here today, but got flummoxed by the vagaries of linking and gave up.
Still, I do wonder: How considerate is it to be considerate?
I like being considerate of others but dislike being stuck in some sitcom universe where the wife asks the husband, "Does this make me look fat?" and woe betide the husband who does not come up with the right answer ... or the world of the inattentive grade-school teacher who can do no better than saying "good joooob!" irrespective of performance.
The best I can do is to state my view together with the proviso that it is just my view.
