It Started with a Sandwich...

I watch Young Sheldon and The Big Bang Theory a lot. This is mainly because I think the topics they have covered is great, it just might need someone to translate what’s happening. As it turns out I was working with Young Sheldon on in the background and it happened to be an episode about misunderstandings. So this is how I see that episode... Young Sheldon Season 2 Episode 16: A loaf of Bread and a Grand Old Flag. When you have stronger senses and a mind that either accepts or rejects, consistency is really important in lots of things (part of the issue with a school environment) but especially food. I’ll go into the rules of our minds in my next informational post but there are loads. For me hot food has to be hot and coffee has a specific temperature where I can drink it or it tastes foul etc. So it makes perfect sense why Sheldon is bothered when the bread he eats is altered by cheaper ingredients. It’s his bread, one that has been a constant in his diet and he knew his mind accepted it. That mental acceptance is the key point and I’m sure a lot of caregivers will have noticed that can be a short list sometimes. He called the news because he wanted his bread back. That was it, however saying the wrong thing without understanding the implications backfires big time. This is where misunderstandings can have disastrous consequences because Sheldon is branded a communist … as is his whole family. His mum is asked to leave their church, his dad’s job is at risk and his siblings pay the price at school too. Something unintended, something he couldn’t see or understand had a negative impact on every single member of his family. A real misunderstanding, with real people, that could have ruined lives.
