    I am direct, I'm referring to other people. I have no situation currently that I need to be direct.
    So say you're at a checkout line and the cashier is an older lady and is taking forever. Would you be honest and direct and say "Hey, can you hurry it up already, granny??"

    I try and be extremely tactful with others. When I am dropping hints, it's because it seems like the situation best calls for it, when I am direct, then it seems that the situation best calls for it. I prefer to be direct. It's much easier and I feel better about it. That said, I find myself being subtle while dropping hints more often.

    I suck at being subtle, maybe that's why I hate it.

    All of this.
    maybe there are times when simply dropping hints is a good idea. I can't think of any.
    This is a stretch: But when someone doesn't know you so well--acquaintances, etc.--and would translate "being blunt" as "being an asshole," sometimes it's necessary to package your message in a way that they will actually receive it. Those who know and trust you should have less of a problem with you being direct--or at least they should be.

    I find keeping things "interesting" annoying and it usually ends me being like why didn't you just say that? When I find out what it actually is
