My friend is not hard of hearing. But when she does not understand something the waitress or the hotel clerk or her husband says, she delivers the most uncivilized response. “What?”
And I realized no matter how you emote the word – what? – you either sound like a shrew or a teenager or someone too lazy to say, “pardon me.”
