MIS-COMMUNICATION.

Na wa! So December don reach nah-nah? Hmm, happy new month o!  Christmas is around the bend. I see beautiful Christmas decorations in my neighbourhood which comes alight at night, but fear no let me snap and put in my blog o, because I don't know if it is legal or  get sued! E no dey hard them at all to file complaint! If not, I will have delighted your eyes with aww-pictures. That reminds  of a Judge Judy episode, where she called a plaintiff an idiot for suing her friend whose daughter drove her car and died on the spot when the car flipped over. Yes! Some people just dey kolo, I swear!

Now! To the topic at hand! I want to talk about mis-communication. I found myself in the middle of a brouhaha that was going on in my department o! Being the new kid on the 'block, 'everybody wanted to play 'boss' with me! No problemo! I simply did my best until yesterday, when I eventually met my manager on one-to-one and bared my mind to him. He apologized for all the ish that was going on and told me who I should solely obey, and I can call him on his personal number if I have a complain. I felt happy. You see, due to lack of communication between my manager and I, a particular employee was using it to her advantage, saying the 'manager left  so and so instruction down! I work only at nights, while the manger comes in after I have left but yesterday was the end of the month, he has to prepare his report, so he worked at night.

Mis-communication has caused rift in families, between friends, and even amongst bloggers! If only important info is passed out, questions  asked and discussion made, so much grudges and anger will be averted! Gaps makes us use assumptions as fillings. Communication does not mean doing amebo  or gossiping o! The key word is 'important info', to enable people to analyze, work with and have a direction or closure. 

Happy new month to y'all!

LOL, i've seen that judge judy episode. That was a crazy story. I've been in some work situations where people try and manage me but i'm quick to give a side eye and go ask my actual manager/supervisor whats what.

Miscommunication and assumptions! This is part of the lessons I've learned these past few months. Sitting down to have a decent talk and open discussions goes a very very long way. Saves one a lot of stress, clears the air and cures some headaches and hypertension immediately.

Happy new month to you. I am very interested in the Judge Judy story. Who sued who, and why was she sued?

The plaintiff is a neighbour/ friend to the defendant and their kids were close. The defendant's daughter visited the plaintiff's son, and they asked for permission to listen to music in her car.She obliged them. The defendant's daughter decided to take the car for a ride down the street to visit a friend, without asking permission from the plaintiff but from her son who was in the car with her. The plaintiff's son agreed since he is allowed to drive the car within the compound when learning. The defendant's daughter was 16 while the plaintiff's son is 14. The car flipped over and the defendant's daughter died on the spot, while the plaintiff's son survived.

The plaintiff is suing her neighbour/friend for damage to the car and therapist sessions her son attended to help overcome the trauma to the sum of $5k. Judge Judy was pissed off and called her an idiot! The plaintiff keep saying, she did not give the defendant's daughter the permission to drive her car!

She had no single empathy for the loss of a life!

blessings and happy december....
communication can be a challenge as sometimes the way something is delivered isn't always how it is received.
stay blessed.

Happy new month to you also.
So true, and the way it is delivered, also matters. Just as proverbs said; A quiet reply can cool an angry man.

Na wa oooo. Okay, sympathy aside, if anyone should be sued, it should be the daughter. But she's dead, and in America (or anywhere for that matter), you can't sue the dead.

My thinking is that she just wanted to appear on the show so she could get appearance mone, cos even she knows she has no case.
