Just one more
“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.
