An example of when there was a miscommunication in one of my jobs is when I was doing tree work about 5 years ago.
I was up in a tree about 60 feet up when my boss tried to tell me something from the ground. I could not understand him because of the wind and he got a little bent out of shape about it. It could have been avoided if we were to buy these cool hard hats that have radio communications built into them. I would have been able to understand him clearly and he would not have gotten upset. It wasn't that big of a deal but it didn't need to occur.
