A new priest was a little nervous about hearing confessions, so he asked an older priest to sit in on his sessions. The new priest heard a couple of confessions, then the old priest asked him to step out of the confessional for a few suggestions. The old priest suggested, "Cross your arms over your chest, and rub your chin with one hand." The new priest tried this. The old priest suggested, "Try saying things like, 'I see, yes, go on, I understand, and how did you feel about that?'" The new priest said those things. The old priest said, "Now, don't you think that's a little better than slapping your knee and saying "No kidding? What happened next?!'"
