Miscommunication

There was one guy who never said what he meant, and his frustration at being constantly misunderstood led him to lead a solitary life. It was only when he met a girl who spoke plainly that he realised the value of his gift.

‘Excuse me, what’s the time?’

‘Time is an abstract concept.’

‘Yeah, I know that. Moron. But what time is it now?’

‘There is never enough time.’

‘Whatevs. I just want to know if I need to run for the train or not.’

‘You will get there, one way or another.’

‘Oh, duh. Don’t worry about it. I don’t need to spend my time talking with a freak who makes no sense.’

‘Words can be hurtful to some people.’

‘You are a fool.’

She walked off. He felt sad and misunderstood.
