26. I look for the right social situations and even the most slightly appropriate verbal cues.

Using questions is helpful, because you are asking them to explain, giving them a chance to express their own views, so you can agree with whatever you can agree with and have an actual conversation.

In non-social situations, perhaps being a woman is helpful, because people may expect us to be more chatty and social and being slightly older helps, because we are expected to be a little more non-conformist. Brief humorous remarks are best and again any kind of quick, always pleasant, obviously puzzled questions, e.g. when using a card, what is the actual difference between debit and credit, other than the bank charges you differently for what the computers do and then a, "Think about it."
