I have a weird habit. I always ask contradicting questions. Especially when I am on the office communicator.
Say, I need some clarity on creating a document. I ping my colleague as below:
‘Do we need screenshots for the instructions? Or just instruction steps will suffice?’
When the reply comes as ‘Yes’, I am confused whether the yes was for the former question or the latter. Going by experience, it would be for the first question. Still, there is a possibility that I am mistaken. I am unable to control it. Can’t I just ask ‘Do we need screenshots?’. Thereby not confusing my colleague and myself. It just irritates me so much but I realize it only after I have done the damage. Every single time!
Until later 🙂
