We don't always know how to listen. For some folks, in fact, it's a chore. Others just plain never think of it. I have a good natured, outgoing friend, Rose Marie, who, nevertheless, hears about half of what people say. I think it depends on where your head happens to be. It's been my experience that "I can't hear you." almost never means you weren't heard but that you didn't say what the person expected to hear. Notice how often someone says they didn't hear you but someone clear across the room repeats what you said. How is that possible?. Strangely, a lot of people will repeat what you say after you but say they didn't hear you. My favorite example. I once walked into a Washington Street studio and told the young guy at the desk "I'm picking up a garment bag from Susan going to Gucci.". He repeated the info, went into another room and returned moments later: "Did you say you're picking up a garment bag from Susan going to Gucci? I didn't hear you."Huh?. I fully admit. When I don't hear someone, I just plain am not paying attention.
