Clear communication

If I say to Dave, “Will you put a new box of tissues in the kitchen, please?”

He will inevitably say, “What?”

So, I tried something new yesterday.

I pointed at the bathroom where we keep extra tissues and said, “Kleenex.”

Then I pointed to the kitchen and said, “Kitchen.”

And he promptly delivered a new box of tissues to the kitchen.

I wonder if I had added the word, “Please,” if that would have been too many words.

And he would have replied, “What?”

  1. Hahaha I love it. So the key is no whole sentences. They just can’t concentrate that long.
