Melting Pot

As the Middleman Says…

“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?

Me: No.

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…
