What is a definition of a communication? Do you as a “Sender” wants to get your message sent to your “Recepient” Or as a Sender, it’s your unintended responsility to assume that your Recepient receives your message?
Question behind those bars:
Do You Or Do You Not Want Your Message to be Sent to Your Recepient?
Here’s the most exact COMMUNICATION Definition I found on Wikipedia. If you want a further reading ( Which I am lazy to do so), then be my guest. HERE.
“ Communication is the activity of conveying meaningful information. Communication requires a sender, a message, and an intended recipient, although the receiver need not be present or aware of the sender’s intent to communicate at the time of communication; thus communication can occur across vast distances in time and space. Communication requires that the communicating parties share an area of communicative commonality. The communication process is complete once the receiver has understood the sender. “
Okay. I’m in love with the God of Wikipedia. The definition is perfect!
This is a snapshot of my phone. Spot how many Communication softwares I have got there? Seven? Well, that’s just not it. There are more next pages I flip and the next page I flip AND the next page I flip. Tak Habis.
So, which normally you use to communicate with your family & friends, collegues or your plumber you wish him to come fix your paip?
This question is for you to answer.
The young ones nowadays seldom use the the SMS, question! Do you know what’s SMS in its’ long-term?
It’s SHORT MESSAGE SERVICE.
When I was a kid, I never had the priviledge to use a handphone. I was totally restricted to buy (even with my ang paos), I wasn’t allowed to use them to buy my own phone.
*Secret: I got busted for getting myself a 3310 handphone, my dad had found it under my bed & I had to return it back. #fml*
But, when I grew up and entered the E industry, I always get ‘kedekut’ messages from my fellow friends.
E.g: “Weh.hang free ke x?Jom mnm kt mamk kayu?bwk skali keje umah nnt kta diskas. “
In FULL sentence:
” Weih. Hang (means you in malay slang) free ke tak? Jom minum dekat Mamak Kayu? Bawa Sekali kerja rumah nanti kita discuss. “
THERE YOU GO. SMS.
However, point is that. SMS has been a good to send a short message. But then again, the recepient might be busy & maybe he is helping his mom do her cleanings at home AND probably won’t see the message till the next day in school and probably get scoldings from his friends for not replying. *fuckhislife*
Commnucations with your family members.
How close are you with your family? Do you still stay with your parents and have your parent-paid-indon-maid to wash your lingeries & boxes?
Well, I DON’T ANYMORE.
I had maids since I was 10years old. Even when we were poor last time, my mom worked her ass off to get us a maid so she and dad could go out for our better life. But since I’ve moved to my aunt’s house in KL & even when I was in high school, mom forbids me to have maids to wash my undies or bras or my shoes or even my school uniforms. I had to wash them my own, iron them my own & prepare my own school stuff.
Note: Having a maid does NOT mean you are a “Paralysed” person. BE A USEFUL PERSON.
OK. Anyway, that’s not my point. My situation here is that, my mom and I sometimes have miscommunications. I always blame on our Zodiacs since she is a Libra, I am a Libra & EVEN in Chinese Zodiacs, we are both Rabbits.
Living under one roof always get us like a chicken-fight. Admitting to my stupid A.D.D stupidity sometimes. A.D.D is like, for an example: My mom could asked me to sweep the floor, I’d be watching TV and only remembers when she gets back home. (Which I would be in deep shit for forgetting to do the sweepings) *fml x8917604*
With failures in small little chores/ things at home, it could turn out to be a huge fight. But then again, you’d try to ignore the fact that you had fight and start the conversation with (while watching TV):
” Yaloh! Stupid lah the judge! Sing so good also critic so bad! What laa! “
My mom and I be better off with SMSes. We communicating better when we are not living under one same roof.
It’s sad. I know. But no heart feelings, I love my mom. She’s the “man” in my life & heart.
Good Working People.
End of last year, I was working with a company. I was involved in this Gadis Semasa Sunsilk. They had the fastest communication and they try to communicate with you in every way. Even after sending you scripts, they would SMS you again to ask you: ” Ruby, please let us know if you have receive your script. Thank You. “
How thoughtful & responsible Sender they are.
Antonym to some production houses & some Production Managers…
They would assume you would get your script and assume that you already has the shooting schedules and ASSUMED that you would know everything before-hand and EXPECT you to appear on-set with everything STAND-BY.
WOW. WHAT A GOD I HAVE TURNED TO HUHH??!!!!!
*lei ma chao hai*
Seriously. For a degree of Professionalism, I have only experince ONCE. The rest I have ever heard of, would be arwah Yasmin Ahmad’s shooting-ways. How I wished I have met her. Oh wells, fate is a funny thing.
Tired to even go further. *SIGH*
I will just story some examples for you to judge by your own.
EXAM 1: Was called to be on-set by 7am at Putrajaya, but ended up saying two lines at 430pm.
EXAM 2: Was told to get payment when finish shoots, instead gotten the payment almost 5months after shoots.
EXAM 3: Was told to be in the office for dialects rehearsals, was on-time reach by 9pm, but ended up getting home by 1230am. (note: I had ONLY three lines).
EXAM 4: Shoots supposed to start by 8am, call-time 6am. Reached there by 605am, crews reach destination by 645am and finishes setting up by 730am, breakfast started by 830am.
EXAM 5: Different states shooting. Drove to location, told my shoot was cancelled because the main cast can’t make it for the shoot.
EXAM 6: Called to tell shootdates and gotten the schedules for shootings. No news, so called back for informations: ” Oh sorry, we already have other cast. Thanks for calling. Takpe lah ye, lain kali kita kerjasama ye? Bye.
Need I go for more examples???
This is the interpretation I get from the E industry. Either you suck-it-up, or you just fucking QUIT.
Incident 2days ago: I defended the industry and said good things about the industry when someone tried to make me an insurance agent. Deep inside me, I am sobbing.
I just hope this gets better for the years to come. I have to earn my own respects. No one will ever pick you up but yourself.
Commications has GOT to improve in the E Industry. For damn Professionalism’s SAKENESS!
Sometimes, I feel I’d much rather talk this him than any of those Communication Breakdown people.
With my BFF, although she lives overboard, we don’t often update each other about every single detailed things in our daily lives. But we “feel” each other, we “understand” each other. Once in a while for one freaking long updates was quite enough. Well, ‘quite’ because BFF can has never-endings talks!
Different scenario if you have new strangers as friends, they will never feel you nor understand you as you BFF would understand you. But you would ALWAYS try to make them understand no matter what. We can has different opinions or doesn’t click, but in good willings, you would always try to make them understand you.
Sometimes as much as your personality shines, your One-Time Impression would already set those new-friended-friends’-up, then you’re probably fucked or you would just say: ” Mehh~ I don’t need them in my life anyway. Why should I even care?? ”
Then, you move on!
I recently had a miscommunication with my great friend. I have lost in-tact with her as my close family came to KL. I had to monitor them and I couldn’t even glance at phone. Else, I would be categorized as RUDE to be constantly looking at my phone! We had a mutual misunderstandings due to one commnucation ‘Software’ breakdown. But for once I BEG each and everyone of you, If you can’t reach me,
PLEASE PLEASEE PLEASEEEE!!!!!
Afterall, what are friends for?
For some reason, this tagline strikes me when I first saw it. It’s a Love & Hate relationship with the airport. Farewells sucks. I never want a farewell. Hate it. If ever I get to choose, GoodBye is the last thing I’d ever want to say. Living or Dead.
” a HELLO is always better than a BYE. “
” Jangan Marah I Love You. “
From the bottom of my heart,
