Today is a bit rough for me so I thought that I would share the humor that T and me shared this morning. (He is spending nights with me while his dad is at work.)
I have a very bad habit of shorthand speaking. I believe I have talked about it before. I only speak half the sentence and fully expect that the person knows what I am talking about.
The following is the conversation we had:
Me: Okay T time to turn it off. We have to get ready to go. (Driving to school)
T: Okay mom.
I turn around and he has turned the Xbox off and is about to turn the t.v. off.
Me: What are you doing?
T: Turning it off like you said. What are you doing turning it on?
Me: I leave the t.v. on so that I have background noise all day.
T: But you told me to turn it off.
Me: Yeah, I meant for you to turn off Youtube so I could put Amazon on.
T: Well I did not understand that!
Shorthand speak strikes again.
