MY CONTINUED COMMUNICATION “BLUNDERS”:
Aaahhh!!! LIFE WOULD BE SO EASY IF WE JUST DIDN’T HAVE TO DEAL WITH OTHER PEOPLE!!!
I’m certain I’ve made that comment before. I’m saying it again! AND…that probably won’t be the last time I say it, either!!! “LIFE WOULD BE SO EASY IF WE JUST DIDN’T HAVE TO DEAL WITH OTHER PEOPLE!!!” 😉
I have been “learning” that I don’t always say…EXACTLY…what I mean. I have known for quite awhile that when I tell my husband, Chris, that “WE” need to do something…I REALLY mean that “HE” needs to do it. Don’t all wives do that? Well, Chris and I both have known for quite awhile now that I really mean “HE” when I say “WE” in reference to the desired completion of a task or chore! 😉 This is “cute,” right?
Well, I just experienced myself doing the same type-of thing during a Rehab. Dept. meeting YESTERDAY…AT WORK!!! Only THIS time…I really meant “WE” when I said “YOU”!!! I COULD NOT BELIEVE WHAT I HEARD MYSELF SAYING!!! INDIRECTLY!!! And? “Somebody” could have gotten very upset thinking my use of the word “YOU” meant that I was referring to HER, however…THAT WAS NOT THE CASE. When I said “you,” I REALLY meant “we” and “we” was intended for “others”. So, the end result? The point I tried to make, indirectly, was probably not taken by the intended recipients!!! Oopse.
Communication…is difficult, folks. SAY WHAT YOU MEAN! MEAN WHAT YOU SAY!!! OH, yeah!!! I say: “BE DIRECT!” Don’t “tip-toe”… through the topic! WHAT??? Are you kidding me!!! ( Sorry, I am stuck with that song, “Tip-toe Through the [tulip],” racing around in my mind and I CAN’T GET IT OUT!!! [ Please forgive me, BUT…”Help!!! I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!” I have definitely gone to that place called “Jill’s world” AND…IT’S LONELY HERE!!!] 🙂
Now, back to my point…there is absolutely NO need to “tip-toe” through ANY topic as most folks listening won’t “GET IT” how you “MEANT IT” ANYWAY!!! BAM!!!
Yep, I made another “blunder” at work yesterday, BUT…I’M LEARNING! LIVING AND LEARNING!!! I am, REALLY, gonna try HARD to say what I mean, folks. No more saying: “WE,” when I really mean “YOU”! And..NO MORE saying “YOU” when I REALLY MEAN “HER, HIM, OR THEM”!!! I WILL TRY MY BEST, folks!!!
GOODLUCK to all of you…”out there” with saying what you mean.
LIFE IS DIFFICULT!!! Noone has time to waste on trying to “figure” out what you meant to say by what you actually said. “AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT!!!” 🙂
GO TEAM!!! WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!
ALL GLORY BE TO GOD! AMEN!!!
