Clear Communication is Key!!

During this week.....

the one with Valentine's Day,

and Hearts, and Cupids,

and Chocolate, and Flowers,

and anything else which might be marketed to men who feel obligated to swoon their sweeties with gifts and kisses.....

I thought that the importance of clear communication in a wide variety of relationships should be addressed.

Even at work.....

"A co-worker got a pen stuck inside our printer. He started to try and remove the pen, but I told him we don't have time for that now, just put a note on the printer telling folks not to use it and then report it to the Help Desk. So he grabbed a piece of paper and scrawled on it. I left before he finished the note. About 20 minutes later, one of the techs comes in laughing and says he was just in the lobby, saw a piece of paper on a printer and went to investigate. Attached is what he found.

Sometimes things don't always come out the way you want them to...."

Now that you've smiled at least once, maybe even chuckled, it's your turn to spread the stupidity and make someone else smile.

[A friend sent this message in an email to me last year. Although I believe it has been traveling cyberspace for years now, I still think that it's worth a chuckle. Please forgive me for being a bit of a 'bad girl.']


  1. YIKES! I suppose if I was not fixated with the 'deed', I would have wondered what was wrong about a message about a stuck pen!

  2. *snort*...that is a good one indeed! thanks for the chuckle.
