Tyler share it with you. It shows how

Tyler HarrisMrs. EvansOral Communications 1st periodJanuary   Twenty- Second   Twenty- Eighteen I  heard  a  funny  story  today  and  I  wanted  to  share  it  with  you.  It  shows how  misunderstanding  and  confusion  can  happen  if  you  don’t  communication  your message  properly  to  another  person.  The  story  is  about  a  husband  and  wife  and   a  shopping  trip  that  went  wrong.

 Enjoy  and  learn.  A  lady  needed  some  things  to make  a  cake  and  she  decided  to  send  her  husband  to  the  store  to  buy  them.  Her husband  was  on  his  way  to  a  sports  event,  but  he  agreed to go on 1 condition – there were only a few items and he could go through the express checkout.

When her husband asked her to make sure he could go through the express checkout, she had numbered the items 1 through 7, something she had never done before…… 1 pound of butter 2 bag of icing sugar 3 bottle of vanilla 4 dozen eggs 5 lard 6 big bag of flour 7 large carton of milk She quickly put the list away before her husband came in with the rest of the bags and decided not to say anything at all about the numbers. Instead she planned on thanking him for being such a great husband. He brought in several more bags that contained 6 large bags of flour and 7 large cartons of milk.
