Default problem ?

is it wrong to use the word "problem" ?

it seems as if the word is poision ???? are we not allowed to use the word "problem" anymore ?

I constantly read and hear the word "issue"

"is this an issue" "is that an issue" ? I seen a picture of a lower unit missing a prop and propshaft - gentleman asked " I seem to have an issue with my lower unit"

if you're on an air plane,the caption makes an announcement on the intercom system stating "ladies n gentleman,we have an issue with the landing gear"...tell me,is that an "issue" or is that a "problem" ??



am I wrong to use the word "problem"

When my Foreman come to me and say,
"We have a problem!!" Then they offer no attempt at a solution whatsoever.

(Knowing that no matter what happens, this job/project WILL get done)

My response to them is something like,
"A problem is something we cannot find an answer for. We will come up with an answer."

Then it is just another issue to be dealt with.

If I have to go to the architect with a "Formal question", it is called a, RFI, "Request for Information".
It isn't a WHAP, "We Have A Problem".

Just a way of approaching things I guess.

If someone doesn't like my post, then YOU have a problem because I ain't changin (fixin) it!...

Perhaps it's due to the inherent negativity related to the word "problem". I personally see no issue with it.

so what you're telling me is,"issue" is a way to sissify the word "problem"

"issue" is the term to use,for people who can't handle the word "problem" - is that correct ?

My thought is that an "issue" comes before a problem. Solve the issues and you don't have a problem. Problem is more serious than an issue.

I guess it's all how you use it and whether or not it is easily solved.

I don't think you are incorrect at all. It is all about how much emphasis you are calling to point?

WG, there's an issue we need to make you aware of, better have a seat. This could take a while.

"Houston we have an issue"
"Say again 13"
"Houston we have an issue"
"Sorry 13. We are having a problem with that last word"
"Issue"
"Are you sneezing?"
"Issue!"
[off mike] I think they have a cold and need tissues? Did we send tissues?
"Do you need tissues?"
"Issue! Issue! The word is f&^%$%^g issue"
"One last time 13, state your status"
"Houston we have a problem"
"Now, that wasn't so hard was it?"

The real transcript.
