“Specificity is the soul of all good communication.”
This conversation took place a couple weeks ago. I still shake my head over it.
Neighbor: Did you hear about the recall on peanut butter?
Neighbor: It’s on the natural kind. You didn’t buy any recently did you?
Me: Um… what kind is it?
Neighbor: The natural kind.
Me: *mental forehead smack, decides to just look up the info for myself later* Well we haven’t bought any in a long time so I am sure I don’t need to worry.
Humanity is doomed…
