Matthew   To argue with someone who thinks they're always right, try to listen to what they have to say and acknowledge their point of view, even though it's not always easy.

During the conversation, ask them questions about why they think they're right, and frame the conversation in terms of “I understand what you’re saying, but my point of view is 93%(29).

The Old Man and the Sea Summary. The story begins, as you might expect, with an old man. He is a fisherman who has not caught a fish in 84 days. He is also not eating very much.

The two factors are related. We also meet a boy who is dear friends with the old man. The old man taught him to fish when he was young, and the boy brings the old man food.
