I've recently been witness to a painful lesson in how differently two people can perceive the same situation.
In our business-savvy world, we do all we can to eliminate unnecessary misunderstandings. We define time lines, terms of payment, responsibilities, and expectations... And still, there is always room for misinterpretation.
I pride myself on being a fairly reasonable person (disputed by some of my son's friends, I'm sure). And I like to think that I am logical as well. Is my sensible mind-set an anomaly? Why don't more people agree with me? It would save us both some time and annoyance. Maybe some people just enjoy a good argument... What they don't know is that I am really skilled in the art of the argument. And, of course, I have the benefit of being right.
