Mansplaining, explained in one simple chart. This is my pet peeve for the day, because a male acquaintance felt he had to explain a VERY simple piano technology-related concept to me, though I have been tuning and repairing piano for over 50 years. He knows this, but had to mansplain anyhow. : -D He never would have said this to a guy!
This has become a dangerous issue. I often ask myself if I've fallen into this trap. I now include, words as, this is how I see things, or how I feel something that gets me out of the trap of sounding objective but really being subjective. Women can also fall into this trap. My sister-in-law is a prime example, to me, of doing this.
Did ya know there are strings in a piano?
@PondartIncbendog I am guessing that you enjoyed them, though. Do you still play? BTW, I went to a Leo Kottke concert once, and he told a hilarious story about his attempt at being a trombone player. Good thing he took up the guitar.
Did you tell him to go fuck himself?
No. He just lost his wife. I felt conflicted, but did remind that I've done piano work for a long time.
That sounds right to me.
