Communication problems…

While studying for my PGDBM way back in 1979, I recall that I had a topic called Business Communication in the subject titled Office Management.We had been told that :the three C’s of effective business communication were: Clear, Concise, and Constructive.
Elaborating on this we were informed as under :
Clear: be sure you are speaking/writing in a manner easily understood by your audience. You wouldn’t speak to a 5-year-old in the same manner as you would a 30-year-old.

Concise: get to the point with factual information.

Constructive: be sure you’re going somewhere with your statement. Don’t run-around in circles, because if you do you will lose your audience.

My readers must be wondering why this sudden reference to this topic ?
The answer is simply the following piece which I read with great interest.I hope you will also like it
Divorce Court

A judge was interviewing a woman regarding her pending divorce, and asked, “What are the grounds for your divorce?”

She replied, “About four acres and a nice little home in the middle of the property with a stream running by.”

“No,” he said, “I mean what is the foundation of this case?”

“It is made of concrete, brick and mortar,” she responded.

“I mean,” he continued, “What are your relations like?”

“I have an aunt and uncle living here in town, and so do my husband’s parents.”

He said, “Do you have a real grudge?”

“No,” she replied, “We have a two-car carport and have never really needed one.”

“Please,” he tried again, “is there any infidelity in your marriage?”

“Yes, both my son and daughter have stereo sets. We don’t necessarily like the music, but the answer to your questions is yes.”

“Ma’am, does your husband ever beat you up?”

“Yes,” she responded, “about twice a week he gets up earlier than I do.”

Finally, in frustration, the judge asked, “Lady, why do you want a divorce?”

“Oh, I don’t want a divorce,” she replied. “I’ve never wanted a divorce. My husband does. He said he can’t communicate with me!”

Have I made my self clear ? I think I have ! What do you say ?
