Been aware for years how usually members of the public use the word "you" to describe something they have done. "You don't realise how lucky you are" they will say when they actually mean that they did not realise how lucky they were. What they should use of course is the word "I" as in, "I did not realise how lucky I was".
I sometimes wonder if it is a self efacing thing. One can never be sure, (to be sure).
