My friend Dwight posted the joke below on facebook, isn’t communication critical? I believe that we all communicate on such different levels and with such different backgrounds that this kind of thing happens way more than we even know. What can we do to get more on the same pages?
A wife asks her husband, “Could you please go shopping for me and buy one carton of milk and if they have avocados, get 6.”
A short time later the husband comes back with 6 cartons of milk. The wife asks him, “Why did you buy 6 cartons of milk?”
He replied, “They had avocados.”
If you’re a woman, I’m sure you’re going back to read it again!
Men will get it the first time.
