I don't like dried coconut, but I love fresh coconut and coconut water. It's delicious. <3
I'll have to try some fresh coconut then. ^-^
Water fountains on your desk?
I... would love that honestly.
The look and sounds of water fountains are truly wonderful.
What is your preferred way to handle miscommunication and misunderstanding?
That's a good question, miscommunication and misunderstanding is unfortunately very common for how big the problems it can make.
As for how I handle it... It depends on the situation.
If I notice it in a discussion I am having with someone, I will say something like: "Wait... I am confused, do you mind clarifying that?"
Or alternately I will say (or follow up with) "So... are you saying 'etc etc etc?' or did I completely mis-interpret that?"
Usually I will also add a proper emote at the end of those to lighten the mood if the discussion got slightly heated.
Once it's clear to me I would continue the discussion with "Ah, I see now" or "Ah, I understand what you are saying.",
and if we happen to actually both be agreeing on the same thing, I will apologize for completely reading his post wrong. XD
If I see two people having a heated discussion and I see a possible misunderstanding I try to clear it up kinda like this:
"I think there might be a misunderstanding, I am pretty sure Ted meant to say 'etc etc', at least that's what it seems like, correct me if I am wrong."
If I misread something and say something misleading in context, I would normal say something like. "Oh, I thought Ted said 'etc etc' XD"
If I say something that's misleading I would say. "Ah! I completely said that wrong! I was meaning to say 'etc etc', sorry for the miscommunication."
That's the general idea, though I am always trying to refine my choice of words to give out the right tone.
