As I’ve mentioned before, I subscribe to google alerts, one of the subjects being ‘coffee blogs’ and this morning this was included in my email results:
A weblog called The Positivity Blog has inserted a post called 9 lessons I have learned from George Costanza. A must read. It is witty and strangely related to many areas of life. Give it a read. Here is the area there caught my eye:
Sometimes coffee isnÂ´t coffee
In one hilarious scene (episode â€œThe Phone Messageâ€) George and a woman is at the end of a date. ItÂ´s midnight and they are sitting in his car.
She: Do you want come upstairs for a cup of coffee?
George: No thanks, if I drink coffee this late at night, it keeps me up.
She: Well, ok, good nightâ€¦
George: Take it easy.
End of date.
Sometimes a cup of coffee isnÂ´t a cup of coffee. As mentioned earlier in 18 ways to improve your body-language, words is only a small part of communication. Being open to using common-sense and experience and not just listening to words in a straightforward, logical fashion can help you improve your communication skills. And prevent situations where a bad time is had by all.
Thanks to The Positivity Blog for the laugh this morning and the quote.
