Minor Issues, Major Implications
About the Guest
I have a habit of keeping things I donâ€™t need; this annoys my wife. Once she found another receipt she didnâ€™t think necessary and I snipped. â€œI saw that. You rolled your eyes at me.â€ And with a smile, she pointed and said, â€œI rolled one. This one.â€ Now, what can we learn from this? Minor issues can escalate quickly and have major implications. That, even the smallest nonverbal behavior communicates a lot so be careful. And that an honest, but humorous confession covers a multitude of sins.
