The Question Club
How often do you post a question or ask for advice and someone responds who obviously either completely misread it, didn't pay attention, or didn't finish reading it?
I remember posting a question recently, and I had to correct and recorrect people because they kept responding to something I never said. It was obvious, if someone took the time to read it, what I was actually saying (even other people were correcting them for me, repeatedly, saying, "that's not what she said, she said this"). They simply misconstrued what I had said. Even when I corrected them, they kept on acting like I never pointed out what they had misconstrued, still responding with their original misinterpretation in mind.
So, how often does this happen to you? How often do you think people misconstrue things and remember things incorrectly?
