Do you give them the benefit of the doubt?
My room mate just did something to her ketchup bottle just now that can be interpreted as an insult. I'm not sure really what to say and whether or not what she did to it was meant for me. In situations like this, where you are not sure, do you give people the benefit of the doubt or do you take offence. I know this sounds like a dumb question, but I want your opinion. I've developed of habit of taking offense to these misunderstandings; I'm trying to correct this negative thinking pattern.
Now, there's not way this could not be interpreted as an insult.
