I've noticed something odd about getting consensus when planning activities with people. Absent other input, I'll come up with several options and offer them to people. Being a sane person, I come up with options that I'd actually like. Then I'll present the options to someone. "As far as I'm concerned, we could do A, B, or C." Then they'll reply something like "Would you mind if we did B?". Why would I mind? Are other people in the habit of presenting options they wouldn't like? If so, what sort of bizarre game are they playing? I can totally understand it when, as often happens, I present some options, and none of them appeal, or they give someone an idea, and they answer "Would you mind if we did D?". That makes perfect sense to me. But why do people seem to assume that I might dislike one of the choices I gave them?
