I truly didn’t know this until about 3 years ago. I automatically answered everyone’s questions without much thought, even if I felt uncomfortable. Until one day after I complained to a friend about someone’s nosey questions, she said “you know just cuz they ask, doesn’t require you to answer them.” ? It never crossed my mind.
So now if I don’t want to answer someone’s question I don’t. I’m not a bitch about it, I just have a variety of ways to plead the 5th ?
