While sitting in the classroom before Bible study started, one of the men walked into the room. He told his wife something, explaining it in a confusing manner that made no sense to her or I.
"Anyway, I have to go." he said before leaving the room.
"I don't know what that was about." his wife said to me. "I think it has something to do with Communion."
"Just nod and smile." I jokingly advised her. "'I don't know what you're saying, but I'm just going to nod and smile.'"
Those two teach an important lesson. The secret to a successful marriage is—communication.

Character:  "Let's take shelter in this cave."
Me:  "The axe murderer is hiding in that cave! Don't you people ever watch horror movies? You should know better than that!"

Obviously, this is extremely annoying, and you wish you could jump into the book, tv show, movie, etc., and give them advice. Or scream at them for being so oblivious, whichever you prefer.
