Give it to him, Joe


I still remember the story my year 10 legal studies teacher told of two young thieves running away from the police in pursuit.

One was armed with a gun, and when cornered, his colleague gave the following instruction:

“Give it to him, Joe”.

The case hinged on the intonation of that sentence.

“Give it to him Joe” could mean “surrender the gun to the officer, Joe”.

Or it could mean, “shoot him, Joe”.

It sticks in my memory because life is lived through subjective interpretation.

👉👉 Here’s a tool to help you do that.
