    Yes, yes and yes. Keeping communication open is so important — and so is keeping it clear. BBC recently ran a story about native English speakers being the least understood in international communications – http://www.bbc.com/capital/story/20161028-native-english-speakers-are-the-worlds-worst-communicators – due, in part, to assumptions that a “listener” will understand all that is said, even the shorthand such as “OOO” meaning “Out Of Office.” As some learned in Journalism 101 class, DON’T ASSUME that what you said is what was heard. Thanks for a great take on a timely issue.
