Today’s post comes to us from Jacque.
Last week VS and I arranged for pick up or delivery of some plants for Anna’s memorial garden for her late husband, Tom. We arranged for 10-ish on Sunday morning. Things in my world have been moving kind of fast, despite COVID restrictions, so I read VS’ email to everyone about donating plants, contacted her VS about my donations, and did not read the details closely.
So at 10-ish on Sunday morning, I pulled into her driveway and called her. She picked up immediately and said, “I’m just turning on to Scenic Heights. I’ll be there in a second.”
To which I said, “Great. I just pulled into your driveway.”
We both started laughing.
“This is meant for a blog post.” I told her, adding, “I guess I did not read the email closely enough.”
“I said in the initial email I could come pick them up but didn’t reiterate it in our back and forths” she said.
And I replied, “You were supposed to read my mind.” I needed to get out of the house to go somewhere, anywhere, and just assumed….well you know.
Tell about a memorable miscommunication or assumption you might have checked more closely.
