Communication Breakdown

George: Jack, I want you to rinse Daisy's water bowl and fill it with fresh water.

Jack: Okay. [Gets bowl, takes it to sink, walks back to the food dish.]

George: Did you rinse the bowl?

Jack: Yes.

George: Do you know what rinse means?

Jack: No.

George: Is there still grass in the bowl?

Jack: Yeah. [Jack puts down the bowl and walks away.]

George [to me]: That was entirely my fault.

Me: Yes. Yes it was.
