When they come, they will whisper.
They will hedge.
They will smile.
They will say ‘we’re not sure about this.’
‘What do you think?’
They will express concerns.
They will say they have a feeling.
Something they heard in the hallway.
Or over dinner.
Or during a focus group.
Something feels a little off.
Can’t you make this one little change?
It makes us uncomfortable.
We have concerns.
Can’t you please ‘fix’ these couple things.
We have some ‘nits’ they’ll laugh.
Just these few fixes and everything will be all right.
Can’t you please?
