listen?

"You can tell her everything but she doesn't listen. Never listens".

This I heard through the windows this morning, spoken loudly by my next-door neighbor. Lyn's daughter's family is living with her now while they try to get back on their feet. I suspect her comments had to do with one of the grandchildren.

As I listened to that statement I thought, maybe she does listen. Maybe she just doesn't know what her grandmother wants. I never would have expected Lyn to want my plant and I'm an adult. I can imagine that she thinks I don't listen either.
