Nope, you're not the only one.am I the only one that thinks if you want people to take you seriously, you should put at least a little effort out, regardless of what you are doing?
I think a combination of factors lead to the lack of effort. In addition to just plain laziness, there's the *I'm allowing you to interpret the point I'm making* theory....I see it all the time at work. If the person giving the information is vague in some way, then that puts the responsibility on you when it comes down to deciphering what exactly it is they're "trying" to communicate.
It's then win/win for them. If the point they're making is valid and you cracked their communication code, they get to say "I told you so".
If you incorrectly interpret what they <cough> "meant" <cough>, then it's all on you. There's no disputing the point they're attempting to make because no matter what they say, (or type), you're the one that's always misinterpreting it.
It's quite clever actually.
