    Very good. :) You can use "considerate" to describe someone who is careful not to inconvenience others. ;)

    Re: considerate

    You can use it to describe someone who thinks about other people when speaking or acting.

    A very considerate young man gave up his seat on the bus to me when he saw that I was in agony with a bad back.
    My friend knew that my father had just died so she didn't talk too much about what a lovely time she had had with her parents. That was very considerate of her.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
