A scanner to work on the written word would help as well.
I remember back in college receiving a note from my girlfriend (no texting in those days) breaking off the relationship. It included the sentence
"I'm feeling too upset to receive visitors".
OK, I thought, she doesn't want me to visit her, so I'd better not go.
Later that day, after she had given up waiting for me, and came to see me instead, I discovered that this line had been deliberately inserted as a way
of getting me to dash up to her room. To this day, I still don't understand how she thought telling me to stay away was going to have that effect.
While we're on the subject of feminine logic, can anyone explain this one, which was the bane of my childhood?
Small boy deliberately leaves an item in a location with a view to coming back to it later.
On return, the item has disappeared. He searches for it everywhere, on every shelf and in every cupboard that he can think of, to no avail.
Then the following dialogue takes place;
Boy; Mum, have you seen such-and-such? I can't find it anywhere.
Mother; I put it away, dear, so that you would know where it was.
