MY QUESTION: DO YOU AGREE WITH WHAT I TOLD PEGGY?.
PEGGY AND TANIA STORY:
QUESTION after you read the story: Did I give the right answer?
Peggy was out sick for two days in a row with food poisoning. When Peggy came back to work she met Tania by the ladies room
Tania: “Girl you are skinny, you lost weight”
(Peggy thought Tania was implying that Tania never thought Peggy was skinny before her two day illness - everyone is always telling Peggy she is skinny - all of her)
Then at 3PM the following conversation took place:
Peggy: “Tania do you think I still look sick and pale”
Tania “You do look pale”
Peggy “Do I still look drawn like you told me earlier”
Tania “ I didn’t say that. What I said was your face looked like it lost weight and when one isn’t smiling one looks paler and their face looks thinner”
Peggy called me that night and related the story to me.
Peggy “Is Tania implying that she never thought I was skinny before my two day illness.
Voterperson “No Tania was not saying that at all. All Tania said was that your face looked skinnier
