A conversation is in process, it is about something that happened a few days ago, you listen with awa at what is being said, you say nothing:
Four reason why man speak no words: (I am sure more than 4 reasons could be named)
- Megan’s law
- Wife or Girl friend tells him to shut up
- He knows too much and might say the wrong thing
- He has nothing to input (unusual as normally can’t be quite)
So is he guilty for not talking, or maybe suspicious? I would say no to both, yes man is known to add his two cents when often he knows nothing about that which he is talking about, just wants to be heard saying something, right or wrong.
Communications is a funny art, you can get into it but if not careful of what you might say, you may not be able to get yourself out of it.
