I shut her down, telling her, "I'm not yelling at you. Trust me, YOU'LL KNOW when I'm yelling at you."
Precisely. I'm generally soft-spoken, but can raise my voice in a neutral tone. If I'm actually yelling, everyone in a 5-meter radius will know. D3 once tried to claim (in front of the entire warehouse) that I "yelled at" him when I was simply correcting him and talking over the pallet jack...no. If I was yelling at him the way he claimed, I would not have lowered my voice the instant the jack stopped.

I've got a couple of 8"x10" dry erase boards that I've been considering taking with me.

Now that's a good idea...I have a dry-erase notebook somewhere. Should pull that out.

Back when I had mouth surgery I couldn't talk for several weeks. I used a Magic Slate Paper Saver to communicate.

Could you use a dry-erase pen on the new clear dividers?

Nah, just get "paper", "plastic", "credit", "debit", and "cash" pre-written, then point as needed

I wouldn't see why not with the dry-erase pens...

I can accomplish mirror writing with minimal thought; cool, one of my "useless" skills suddenly becomes invaluable

But I didn't use a chirpy sweet voice and start with bunch of platitudes "oh, I know you didn't mean to do it, and it's not a big deal, but..." I just start with "don't do that please."
Ugh, I hate that. Why do I have to ramble on and beat around the bush to be considered "polite"? Me, I'd rather someone went straight to the point and didn't waste my time with babbling. Yet most people consider that "rude". It's crazy.

And if I am being rude, you'd know it. For example, "Please don't do that" is not rude. "Hey pig-face, get your grubby hands off of that and stop being stupid!" That is rude.
