Debra, Bourdeau

According to Interpersonal Communication: Relating to Others (2008), The first step to bridging differences between cultures is to find out what hampers effective communication (Beebe, Beebe, and Redmond, 2008). Men and women in romantic relationships are no different when it comes to communicating with one another.

Karen uses demeaning language as a communication barrier. Sometimes a job that pays the bills puts great pressures on people to brown nose in fear of being fired. Perhaps Brian is fed up with having to always be late as well, but it also seems the pressure of his employment keeps him from having time with Karen. Karen does have a right to be upset, but perhaps she is upset with the wrong person; Brian’s boss could be taking unfair advantage of Brian’s expertise that...
