Oh, all the time. I generally err on the side of biting my tongue because I want to avoid conflict. I noticed this especially while traveling during the holidays because many people seem to have left their manners at home.
I bite my tongue very often! Especially with the people who live right under my own roof. They use up all the clean towels, leave the toilet paper holder empty, over-fill the garbage and leave expired food in the refrigerator. I just take care of and correct all of that so that I'm not a constant critic.
I bite my tongue about sooooooo many things. Just yesterday, for example, I saw a young woman who looked pregnant. And I was so curious to know when she was due, but I didn't ask her because it's possible, especially at this time of year, that she has just packed on some extra holiday pounds.
I bite my tongue constantly about anything pertaining either to politics — especially Trump — or to women's issues. People are so passionate about their opinions that I find it is better to just nod my head and keep the peace than to get into a debate with them that I can't possibly win.
I always bite my tongue when a customer complains about something and just do my best to make them feel happy and satisfied. My business is all about customers having a positive experience, leaving with a smile on their face and wanting to come back again in the future.
