Reply To: takes for granted vs fails to consider clarification

So, “takes for granted” is what the person believes; “fails to consider” is what the person *doesn’t* believe.

In you’re example, the person is taking for granted that anyone older than Grandma is really old.
He or she is failing to consider that someone older than Grandma might not be really old.
