I’ve had three completely different misunderstandings with 3 completely different types of people with three completely different topics.
Each time, the misunderstanding involved a different facet of conversation - topic, tone, and intent.
Each time, it left me ridiculously confused as to exactly what the hell the other person was on about.
Each time it was up to me to bridge the gap.
Each time it could have sparked an argument miles higher if I hadn’t been the one to figure out how to defuse the ignition.
What in the fucking hell gives? Does everyone not speak English today? Is it me?
