Communication FAIL


Saturday night's conversation with Megan ...


Megan: Mom, am I going to Sunday School tomorrow?


Me: No, because you're singing in the 3rd service.


Megan mildly iriritated: But am I going to Sunday School?!


Me: I just said, 'No, because you're singing in the 3rd service'.


Megan frustrated to tears: Ugh! AM I GOING or NOT?!?!


Me: How else can I say it so you'll understand that you are NOT going to Sunday School tomorrow because you're singing in the 3rd service?!


Megan: You should have just said, 'NO'.


Me: Fine. NO.



Note to self: When answering Megan, LESS IS MORE. Sheesh!
