Interesting quote SA. I actually disagree with it to a certain extent. When I say something, it's my responsibility to make sure the meaning or point is understood by the person(s) I am speaking to. This is why I generally follow up nearly everything I say with a confirmation question such as "Do you understand?" or "See what I'm saying? or "Got it?" The only responsibility of the listener is to ask for clarification if they are confused.

People in general really suck at communicating their thoughts or intents and they tend to leave a lot more open to interpretation than they realize. I can't really blame anyone for misinterpreting something I said because chances are, I left the door open for misinterpretation in the first place.

Capiche? ;-)

I'm responsible for what I say--you're responsible for how you understand it.

"I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best." --Marilyn Monroe

Just how down-to-earth and honest this was appealed to me.
