I agree it's like an arsenal. I did find your speech a bit stilted, but recognize it was because of your esl background. I find others want more words. At my work, they don't want brevity or clarity. The customer service example you gave, could have been written by us. :(
Stuart Mill English
Yeah, sometimes people write badly because they're lazy or busy or ignorant. But sometimes people want to be unclear. A good example of this is some credit card companies. They don't want you to understand that you're signing up for a bad deal.

Great thoughts. Talk a bit faster. I find your pace too slow.
Stuart Mill English
Thanks for the observation! Will work on it. I'm mainly an English as a Second Language teacher, so the slower pace feels normal to me.
