would we (understand what he wanted)? was the reason rather on his side or on the side of the others?

Was what he wanted reasonable? life-saving?

Was he able to speak at all?

Was he communicating face-to-face?

Although the situation isn't life-threatening, does he want some kind of medical assistance?
We've established he can speak "at all", can he speak well?
Any impediment on his behalf hindering normal verbal communication?
Did he wish for a specific Christmas present that noone knew what was?

Can he word his needs so that anyone could understand him if they heard him properly?
Or vice versa - anyone can hear him and his words clearly but what he says doesn't make sense?
Does he suffer from aphasia?

***Spoiler***


This one was a bit too easy. So "joe" is a bit verbose when it comes to talking he might say "I'm currently busy sedulously cogitating on aspects of my diurnal life." "this matter impugnable is akin to avouching" or the more simple "Could you please elucidate on why that is"
