Just one more

The Weekend Australian - Magazine - - Front Page -

“Just” a minute, Nikki! I too have caught my­self us­ing the word “just” in my work emails, and I don’t think it’s a gen­der is­sue at all (“Just? Say no”, Nov 17-18). It’s an as­sertive­ness is­sue. Also, it is pos­si­ble for a guy to sit next to a large woman on a plane and feel equally vi­o­lated. Pe­ter Taplin

Thank you, Nikki. I would usu­ally write “I just wanted to write…” but no more! And when I fly to Syd­ney this week I will use the arm rest rather than plac­ing my hands in my lap.
