Dear Annie: My husband and I recently visited the beach house of some friends. While there, I met an interesting lady who stuttered. At first I thought she had had too much to drink, but after 15 minutes I realized she had a speech impediment. I've never met an adult who stutters. At times it was very uncomfortable because I knew the word she was trying to say but could not get out. 

Would it have been rude to complete the word for her, or should I have let her work through it? I felt very awkward.
