WTF Wednesday - Misunderstandings

Sometimes giving specific instructions is painful.

When you're a "big picture" kinda gal, like Grandy, you forget that sometimes people are so literal. I find myself saying something that to 99% of the population is completely harmless...and then there is that 1%.

It's no wonder Grandy uses so many words that rhyme with luck, buck, pucker, lass, pass, pit, sit, ham, cram, itch, stitch, tick, knick...well you get the point.

RAM that 1%.

I have one son who is an engineer. Has been since he was about 12.

PRECISE use of language is required. It's not that he doesn't have a sense of humor. It's just that it's a little different.

And he laughs at ME for my imprecision.
