well, i make mistakes all the time, once a teacher told me to get him some chalk, when to the teacher's lounge and asked, one of them said to look in a cabinet, i looked somehow i didn't see the chalk, and i asked again, so she told me to look again, and there it was, i'm really curios why i didn't see it the first time, maybe teleportation

We are all human, I hope. Humans make mistakes and that is a fact. I have in the past and I'm the better for owning up to it. In addition, communication between humans is so imprecise. I think that we commonly misinterpret what other people mean. Yes, meaning is everything, as well as context. Context is very important in meaning and communication. I think that it is very human to have misunderstandings, but it is our responsibility to try to figure out what other people mean and to clarify our own words.
