What's in a phrase?
So here's my little rant on the phrase 'don't forget.....'.
When I hear 'don't' the first thing I think is 'now what?' It puts my back up, so to speak.
I resent the fact that the speaker thinks I have or will forget. I might but 'you' don't have
to make me feel bad about my ability to remember. As far as 'you' know, I may choose to forget.
It would be so much more positive to hear 'please remember'
Well! since you asked so nicely, I certainly will.
Thanks for listening/reading.
