Sometimes... but what immediately came to mind after reading this title was "I gave the correct answer, you just asked the wrong question". Sorry, it's late and everything is silly.

Five tons of flax. I really prefer flax over hemp. I know that the guys of the league of the dynamic diskord prefer hemp, but I'm certainly into flax.



Just kidding.
Sometimes I misunderstand questions and topics. Here sometimes because English is not my mother language.
There are sayings and puns I really don't get like 'to kick the bucket'. Why should anyone kick a bucket?

What I also consider problematic are the missing noverbal messages to recognize irony and stuff.

I do it in all walks of my life and am surprised I wasn't just fired for misreading something causing downtime.

Do you remember that forum post from a week or so ago... where the entire post was spelled wrong, but it showed you how your brain sees and interprets words? I thought that was very telling, and it certainly explains how you could easily misinterpret words if you are not looking carefully.

Haven't had this happen too often. I have caught myself saying "what?" only to realize a second later that I actually did hear and/or understand what was being said.
