What Does Reasonable Mean?

Let’s say that I think that something is reasonable and you don’t.

So I say to you, “Come on, let’s be reasonable.” And you say, “I am being reasonable.”

So we go to court, and they decide who is reasonable.

But why can’t we say that everyone is being reasonable? Because what is reasonable to me, may not be reasonable to you. But to you, it may be reasonable to feel that I’m not being reasonable.

Now, doesn’t that sound reasonable?

So let’s all be reasonable, and not use reasonableness as a measuring stick for court rulings.
