Dropped The Ball?

“Amma, Doers K know SH has gone to her dance class today? He needs to get her back.”

“K knows – he had called some time ago and I told him M (neighbour) picked her SH up.” M was taking her daughter too to the same class.

“OK”

End of thread.

 

It was not ‘OK’ – I couldn’t help hearing it all from the restroom.

From the lady’s (Amma) response, it’s certainly clear K knew SH has gone to the class. Not clear if K knew he should go and fetch both the kids back.  Strangely SU (the mother) also dropped the thread.

Unfortunately, once out of the rest room, I was distracted and promptly forgot all about the ambiguity that had struck me right away.

Luckily, no damage done – M had stayed on and brought the kids back once they finished their practice.

While some prior understanding set up among M, SU and K had worked out well in this instance, the outcome was not guaranteed. Especially in view of SU’s opening question.

 

This kind of communication without a pucca confirmation of comprehension on both sides could easily undesirable outcomes; and they do.

Am sure, now that I brought this up, you recall a number of similar personal experiences, most likely not pleasant.

Ravi announced softly: ‘Sir, I am resigning.’

He could have said ‘there was no cream for the coffee-maker’ or even ‘the office printer had run out of ink’.

Manager: ‘What is it?’

Ravi repeated himself, raising his voice a wee bit: ‘Sir, I’m leaving.’

Words going home this time, Manager yelped like a puppy hurt in an encounter with an unyielding object: ‘What happened?’

Ravi stood his ground: ‘Nothing sudden, Sir, have been thinking for a while. Got a job in Bajaj Allianz!’

Manager let out a long breath: ‘I know you have talked to me sometime ago about a rise. I had meant to do something about it. Is that the issue? If it is, we can…
