“miscommunication”

Little thing like ordering food also can create miscommunication. As such, be mindful and never based on our perception. Live harmony, the precious gift to all beings!

Sometimes, when we are too busy at work or lazy to dine out, we might ask our colleague to help to take away food.

I heard one of the interesting story, here you go:

A: Hi! Can you help to buy lunch for me? Mixed rice with 3 dishes.

B: Sure, no worries.

However, when B brought back the lunch with 3 different type of “vegetables”. A was so upset as he was thinking of Veggie, Tofu and fried eggs. It’s common for local people to take away mixed rice with 3 difference dishes, in Cantonese, “Chai” mean 3 difference dishes. For those who are not used to it, they might interpreted as 3 types of vegetables. As such, miscommunication can happen easily if we are thinking only from our point of view.

Whatever, we are not sure, it’s better we check with others instead of based on assumption. We might be wrong and create unnecessary conflict and unhappiness.

Always use 2 way of communication and check when you are not sure. Its easy and good way to sustain good relationship and also live in harmony!
