Stop Reinforcing My Bad Message

Benny was getting a little restless in church this morning, so Ron got out a slip of paper and pencil and started making a baseball scorecard. I gave him a Look, and Ron reluctantly put it away. Afterwards we had this whispered discussion:

Me: I think we should have a new rule -- no baseball in church.

Ron: Why not?

Me: Because it sends the message that church is boring and Benny should get entertainment.

Ron: Well, I'll have you know that Benny told me he'd heard church was boring, but that he didn't think so.

Me (outraged): Who told him church was boring?

Ron: He said you did.
