Watts & Knotts

miscommunication.jpg

KNOTT: “Who’s calling?” was the answer to the telephone.
WATT: “Watt.”
KNOTT: “What is your name, please?”
WATT: “Watt’s my name.”
KNOTT: “That’s what I asked you. What’s your name?”
WATT: “That’s what I told you. Watt’s my name.”

A long pause, and then from Watt,
WATT: “Is this James Brown?”
KNOTT: “No, this is Knott.”
WATT: “Please tell me your name.”
KNOTT: “Will Knott.”

YOU LEFT THE TALKERS AT A POINT WHERE THEY WERE TOTALLY CONFUSED,
READTHE REST OF WHAT HAPPENED…

WATT: “Why not?”
KNOTT: “Huh? What do you mean why not?”
WATT: “Yeah! Why won’t you tell me your name?”
KNOTT: “But I told you my name!”
WATT: “Didn’t you say you will not?”
KNOTT: “Not not, knott, Will Knott!”
WATT: “That’s what I mean.”
KNOTT: “So you know my name.”
WATT: “Of course not!”
KNOTT: “Good. So now, what is yours?”
WATT: “Watt. Yours?”
KNOTT: “Your name!”
WATT: “Watt’s my name.”
KNOTT: “How the hell do I know? I am asking you!”
WATT: “Look I have been very patient and I have told you my name and you
have not even told me yours yet.”
KNOTT: “You have been patient, what about me? I have told you my name
so many times and it is you who have not told me yours yet.
WATT: Of course not!”
KNOTT: “See, you even know my name!”
WATT: “Of course not!”
KNOTT: “Then why do you keep saying of course Knott?”
WATT: “Because I don’t.”

[Pause]

KNOTT: “What is your name?”
WATT: “See, you know my name!”
KNOTT: “Of course not!”
WATT: “Then why do you keep asking Watt is your name?”
KNOTT: “To find out your name!”
WATT: “But you already know it!”
KNOTT: “What?”
WATT: “See!”
KNOTT: “And you know mine!”
WATT: “Of course not!”
KNOTT: “Exactly!”

NOW THEY ARE AT A POINT WHERE BOTH THINK THE OTHER KNOWS THEIR NAME,
BUT THEY THEMSELVES DON’T KNOW THE OTHER’S NAME.

KNOTT: “Listen, listen, wait; if I asked you what your name is, what
will be your answer?”
WATT: “Watt’s my name.”
KNOTT: “No, no, give me only one word.”
WATT: “Watt”
KNOTT: “Your name!”
WATT: “Right!”

[pause before it hits him]

KNOTT: “Oh, Wright!”
WATT: “Yeah!”
KNOTT: “So why didn’t you say it before?”
WATT: “I told you so many times!”
KNOTT: “You never said Wright before”
WATT: “Of course I did.”
KNOTT: “Ok I won’t argue any more. Do you know my name?”
WATT: “I do not.”
KNOTT: “Well, there you go, now we know each other’s name.”
WATT: “I do not!”
KNOTT: “Good!”

[pause before it hits him]

WATT: “Oh, Guud!”
KNOTT: “Good.”
WATT: “No wonder, it took me so long, is that Dutch?”
KNOTT: “No, it’s Knott!”
WATT: “Oh, okay. At least the names are clear now Guud.”
KNOTT: “Yes Wright.”

NOW THEY BOTH THINK THEY KNOW EACH OTHER’S NAME AS WELL!
Watt do you think ?? Do they or do they Knott ???
