Miscommunication

Sometimes when I am listening to someone, my mind wanders, and I find myself zoning in and out of the conversation, only half listening to it, even if it's a conversation I should be paying my full attention to.

Case in point:

The following is an actual phone conversation I had with my friend Rose yesterday....

Me: Hey, what's up?

Rose: Nothing good. I had the WORST day yesterday.

Me: Why, what happened?

Rose: While I was driving to work yesterday morning, I had a car accident.

Me: Shit. Are you Ok?

Rose: Yeah, just a little banged up, but I'm basically ok.

Me: What happened?

Rose: Well, like I said, I was driving to work, and I hit some Black guys.

Me: Holy Shit!

Rose: Yeah, it sucks, but I have just a little car damage, so no biggie.

Me: No biggie? Is everyone Ok?

Rose: Yeah, I told you I'm fine.

Me: But what about the others?

Rose: What others? I was alone in the car.

Me: You're being a little cold. How many where there?

Rose: How many of what? What the fuck are you talking about?

Me: What am I talking about? What the fuck are YOU talking about? You just told me you ran over some black guys! How many? Are they hurt?

Rose: You're a jackass. I said that my car hit some BLACK ICE, you fucking idiot... not Black Guys.

Me: Uhhhhh. Oh. Ok.

Rose: You really need to listen better when people are talking to you.

Me: I agree. So, the black guys are ok then?

Rose: -Click-

Ok, my last line was just me being a prick....

P.S. I really hope those black guys are ok.....
