My great uncle died recently . . . of the people who spoke at his funeral, the thing that everyone seemed to zero in on was that he didn’t like to have to tell people how to do something more than once. He told you once and if you didn’t get it, he got angry about it.
I wonder what people will say at my funeral? I don’t know that I have a distinguishing trait that everyone knows.
In any case, I’m going to start telling people things once and once only and then yelling at them if I have to repeat myself.
