Let’s Make Some Things Clear

In an episode of “The Brady Bunch,” Greg wanted his parents to use “exact words” with him so that he would know exactly what they were telling him.  Well, in my case, I’m asking my relatives and friends to talk clearly and specifically with me whenever they talk to me about certain things.  Let me tell you what I mean by that.

Whenever you guys tell me that you are gonna go to a store, you would have to tell me exactly which store you would be going to.  Are you going to this store or that store?  Now, we have more than one Dollar General store near my house … and if you told me that you were gonna go to Dollar General, you would have to tell me which Dollar General store you were gonna go to.  Are you gonna go to the one in McDonald, Cecil, Hickory, Canonsburg, Houston or Clinton?  This way, I’ll know exactly which one of those stores you would be going to at a certain time.

Now, if you guys speak to me specifically and clearly about certain things, I would know exactly what you were talking about.  This way, I can have many of the facts instead of just having some of the facts.

I hope you were able to let me make some things clear for you guys in this blog post.
