An 87 year old woman said something very politically incorrect and instead of saying "that's mean" or "you can't say that" or something else that I probably would have sad under other circumstances, I said, "Mrs. Wellson, that is a very rude thing to say" and she apologized and asked what she should say instead. I was shocked at how well she responded; she has not responded well to this type of correction in the past. She hates PC culture, but because I framed it this way, she was more accepting
That’s really cool. It’s a great reminder to us all that thinking a little more about how we phrase something or how we approach people can make all the difference.
Thank you for sharing!
