I didn’t mean to!!! Just not sure if I’m the one who’s been getting it wrong my whole life :smiley:
Sorry Sean!
Also when I did GCSE music we were told to remember “every good boy deserves fruit” and I thought “I’m not a boy and I love fruit. What a stupid phrase, Mr Stanley.”

Yeah the wrong one stuck with me and can’t seem to correct it

Tend to think of this as referring to man as a species not a gender, it applies to all.

Think ‘treat others as they’d like to be treated’ is generally better tbh

“Not my circus, not my monkeys” is one that I enjoy. Stops me from mithering.

Also often think of my very northern Nanna and how she says “sesst la vee.”

That would require a lot of assumption when dealing with people for the first time. I think treating people as you’d like to be treated works better because it makes for equal treatment, whereas trying to infer how others want to be treated brings inconsistencies and personal biases (not necessarily conscious ones) into the assumption.
