Sad to be misunderstood by others.

Salam,

Communication through the latest gadgets like mobile phone or online networks sometimes bring a lot bad effects. I'm sure most of you have experienced or read the bad effects. I'm not writing an essay about the effects but to share my own experiences regarding the miscommunication and misunderstanding.

Written messages can be interpreted positively or negatively. It depends on how you read it. That's why there are some emoticons created to help the message to get across. Sadly, when I was in a hurry, I typed something and the person who received it thought that I was being disrespect just because she's older than me and she is related to me. I didn't have any intention of being disrespect but maybe the choice word was not suitable according to her. I forgot to address her with her "title" (of being older than me) and she ta ught that I was being rude.

I was so sad and at the same time also furious with her reaction when she told me in her reply to be more courteous in sending any text messages next time. I decided to throw away my ego and apologized to her even though I didn't think that I made any mistake. I guess it won't be so bad if it was a face to face communication where we can always explain and show our emotion and also demeanor.


Have you ever experienced any misunderstanding before in any written communication?

selalu kak..
tpi bial umur dah byk nih
ayu amik jln mintak maaf and explain
esp women la
since ayu ni women
yg sangka disakiti tu pmpuan jugak..
klu diikut..
dulula
peduli ape ko beso ke kecik
ko tua ke muda
but once bila kita makin dekat dengan DIA.
slowly kita akan selalu mengalah...
resultnya selalunya baik2 sahaja selepas itu even kita sangka kita terluka.

betul tu kak nur. melalui tulisan orang boleh salah faham. nadiah pun banyak berhati-hati kalau nak menulis (SMS, email, FB...bla bla bla) sebab takut orang salah faham

jangan sedih-sedih ye kak nur. kesian baby :)
