It was hard enough to always understand everything people were saying BEFORE masks. Now? We may have a chance to get things right.
According to a new survey, the average person has four awkward or embarrassing situations a month because we misunderstand – or don’t hear correctly – what someone says.
And here are some of the biggest mistakes people make because they misheard something . . .
1. 20% have asked for directions, not understood them, and gone to the wrong place.
2. 20% have called someone by the wrong name repeatedly.
3. 14% have screwed something up at work.
4. And 5% have worn inappropriate clothes to an event because they misheard the dress code.
The survey also found two-thirds of us have had to PRETEND we understood someone – when we didn’t.
