Mis-Communication

Postby chicka-Dee » Sun Aug 09, 2009 1:57 pm

Isn't it interesting how easily miscommunication can occur? I was thinking about all the 'debates' that happen online in these forums, and many of them seem to go a lot like this (I was having a bit of fun on youtube last night):

Or like this (why do we ever even wonder why there's so much conflict in the world?):

Even at the video store you can run into problems:

What can we do to make ourselves understood more clearly? But then again, I often wonder if we are really clear ourselves about what we are trying to say (myself included, of course!). Perhaps by saying much less, we are actually saying more.

Just a few thoughts as you drink your Sunday morning coffee (or tea, or [fill in the blank])...

I don't understand. Are you saying we're all stupid?

But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.
