Random thoughts on... cheering, not jeering
Recently, it occurred to me that what I thought of as encouraging banter may be mis-construed. The phrase that I caught myself using was “push him”. With a bit more time and eloquence, I would have said “keep going, and help the person in front to push on faster towards the finish”. As it happened, I didn’t, and the person “in front” looked straight at me, pretty worried if truth be told! That was my first mistake. The second mistake was not dubbing the recording before uploading it to Facebook.
