Listening is a skill

Did you know that listening is a skill?

I just called our vet about the cat that our dogs hurt, accidentally! This is how it transpired:

Me: Hello N, I need to check what happened to the cat that our dogs hurt, accidentally? We brought the cat in on Saturday.

Lady N: Uhm, not sure. Let me check

<Now I hear her talking to her colleagues – Do you know what happened to the cat that Mrs S brought in on MOnday?> Where did I mention Monday? WTF. Colleagues all respond: NO.

Lady N: Mrs S, I’ll have to call you back ‘cos we’re not sure what the outcome was…

Me: Thank you

There you have it. I really thought that I’m crazy but woe is me – I’m not that crazy!

P.S. It’s not our cat. Not sure who the cat belongs to
