    Seen Spicer reminds me of Costello. The Bath Robe thing reminds me of a Three Stooges sketch. The White House has gone from being bathed in a Skittles motif to the main stage at Barnum and Bailey’s. Waiting for the flying elephant…

    First impression – Sorry Kevin.

    Great article Kevin! There are so many factors that can cause miscommunication. I would say even more so on a blog and the internet. Personally I’m learning that criticizing more often than not works horribly in writing while true exhortation works best face to face when human emotions are engaged.

    Good article Kevin!

    “Sometimes we can be so sure about what we’re saying, or what it is that we’re trying to find out, that we completely miss the boat of what the other person or people are trying to communicate or how they are thinking.”

    How true. When teaching, I ask students to wait until I’m finished teaching before raising their hands to ask a question. I find that when a student has their hand up when someone is teaching, the only thing they care about is their question and not what is being taught! I can’t tell you how many times I have answered their question, but they didn’t hear because they were so busy wanting to ask the question.

    Also, we have a few people hear that believe they are the only ones who know the truth about what is being discussed. IMO.

    Kevin is the master of pithy philosophy … not as easy as it looks 🙂

    that sketch never grows old, but i had never seen this wonderful application – thank you

    poor little sincere, stubborn, myopic Lou and poor big old bombastic superior-in-his-own eyes Bud
    … if any of my family checks in here, for the record i don’t mean my uncle Lou or cousin Bud

    Bob,

    Let each be fully convinced, right?

  7. Bob Sweat says:

    Siggy…………Yep! Just not with the attitude that you are a legend in your own mind.

  8. Kevin H says:

    Thanks, Steve, Bob, & Em.

    Em, so is there a degree or something I can get for that “master of pithy philosophy”? 🙂

    Kevin,

    This has been one of my all-time favourites, and I still need to hear it now and then. And I agree with John 20 – it never gets old.
    I’ve played it for my son and he laughs so hard he can’t breathe. It’s classic.

    Very relevent words on discussions, too. Well said.
    Listening (really listening) is a lost art, I’m afraid….

    A good belly laugh is good for the soul. Helps to ease anxiety. Thanks for the chuckle.
