Would life not be wonderful if you could read another person's mind? But, reality is that you can't just expect someone to read your mind. How can they know what you want - especially if you're not even sure you know what you want yourself! Though it may be considered impolite to express a desire or make a request, surely, it's even more anti-social to just sit around, hoping that someone will guess what you're thinking. And, chances are, you'll end up feeling resentful because they haven't read you clearly. If in doubt, speak out!
