WE Are ..

We are …. We are what  you ask ? lol we are still stupid for each other , we still drive each other mad , we still  want to kill each  other , or rather give them away on a regular basis  , but that is just part of who we are as a couple . We have been together now for as close to 15 years as makes no never mind ,  so  by  now we really do know how to push each other’s buttons  either for good or bad  , lol and  I guess as we haven’t killed each other yet there must still be something working right. So far so good  lol 15 years down maybe another 15 to go  ?? Yikes !! lol , errrrr  oh well we will see only time will tell  won’t it ?

After all this time I guess we must just like being together  if we didn’t we wouldn’t still be pestering each other  we would have parted ways by now , so it seems there is something good still going on here. We still love the same things  and love going to the same places , meeting up with friends and just spending time together , I know  I still miss him  while he is at work as we are apart for long hours at a time , what with work hours and travel hours makes it a long time from the time he leaves here till the time he gets back . Yes I know this has to be as without his job we would be in trouble , but when you love someone that much it is hard to be apart that long every day.

Everyone knows the saying  about how 2 people who are so close will finish each other’s sentences  , well yes lol for us it is too true  and at times we just look at each other and laugh  as we maybe see something on TV  and both thought the same thing at the same time . Sometimes we do not even have to ask but we know what the other 1 wants/needs and do it  without a word being said . We are both sports mad and are always watching some sport or other and if the chance arises we will go to games , doesn’t happen enough but it does happen that we get to go to games. With  his long work hours it is very hard to plan anything , also the  different shift patterns  makes it hard  as there are 4 different  shifts , lol, never mind 9 to 5  ..

Another thing we both love is good movies or good TV series  and some we have watched for so long now that we are always quoting lines at each other  from a movie or a TV show. Sometimes  when we are out someone will  say something , it sparks a giggle and we look at each other and a quote will come out , leaving the person who said it perplexed  then we have to explain , lol then they laugh too  and see why we did . As we do not get a lot of time to go out when we can we do , it is good to interact  with others  rather than just staying to ourselves. We have met some lovely people and yes a few we wish we had never met , but basically  the ones we have met  have been really nice .

After  all this time we still love being able , when we go to bed to snuggle into each others arms and fall asleep that way , been doing it so long now it is really hard on that 1 week a month when he has to do nights and  I have to sleep alone at night and him in the day . Nothing worse  than  to have to try and sleep alone when you are not used to it , also amazing how quick  you do get used to having someone you love cuddling you as you fall asleep, so then having to sleep alone is harder  to take. We also love the same foods , the same way of cooking things , we often change who does the cooking , depending on what we are having as to who cooks , I still do all the dishes tho  lol thanks dear 😛 ….

Wonderful thing too is the way we help each other with all the chores that need doing , whatever they are  you know cleaning , etc, and looking after the plants , I have no problem at all about asking him to help as he just does as soon as  I ask , I try not to ask too often as he works  very hard and does not need to be doing my chores as well it is just not fair on him. About the only thing I might have to kick his bum about is putting his clean washing away , lol, I say if  I washed and dried it and folded it up least you can do is put it away ..fair enough …lol..

The problem with men is …you can’t live with them and they are too big to flush down  the toilet ….

Say What ?

Say what  ? …..Have you ever stopped to think just how much has changed in say the last 20 years  ? I could go back further  but no need to really as things have changed so very much just in 20 years that I sometimes wonder where  I am at all . We have changed the way we talk, what we believe , how we dress, how we expect others to behave , how  we expect others to behave toward us, our work ethic , our living standards , the way we treat others , the way we shop , the words we use , etc, etc, etc. I could name so many more things  that have changed in said 20 years that i would most likely still be writing them down  an hour from now , but I am sure you see what I mean .

Question is how do we manage ? How do we manage all these changes without going right off our rocker  ? The changes have been so fast and so many in just this last 20 years that it truly blows the mind. Things we do and say now for instance have  got us to the point that if we do not stop and actually think about the words we use we can land in a world of pain and or trouble , and we never even  meant to that is the frightening thing. I remember back to a time in the  UK when hubby and I were walking back to our car from a shopping centre , when I happened to say to him ” Look that up in your Funk and Wagnalls ” when this young copper ( who I hadn’t even noticed  ) came over to me and said ” are you swearing? being vulgar ? ”  well I just looked at him , then his superior  officer with him , then hubby , and trying ever so hard not to crack up like both the others were  I just said  in a controlled voice  :” No that is the name of  an encyclopedia ” ….Then I cracked up too and we all went on with what we were doing.

Telling you this so you can see how such an innocent statement  to my hubby almost got me in trouble !! I mean really …Lol   we still laugh about it today but it goes to show how easy it is now to get in trouble for just talking to someone. Thinking back on just how many words we used to use that were totally innocent and had altogether different meanings now , the mind boggles  at how many now you dare not use in public. Just 1 word , to give you and example is the word ” gay ” it used to mean happy , loving life , enjoyment , now it has been twisted into something terrible and really you dare not use it in public or you risk being  called names  or getting into trouble .

Shopping too is something that has changed so very much , we used to just write a list get in the car go get the shopping , when we got there it was all nice and easy and easy to find what you wanted. Now supermarkets make it so hard they have so many products  it takes  an hour sometimes  just to find what you want , as now there are up to a dozen different brands of the same thing and all have something just a bit different in them , making a decision on what you want even harder. There is also the problem now of the huge tax rort called halal certification, it is not religious , it is purely  a tax rort to raise money for isis , after all they need money too. So add that to the list to look for the symbols so you do not get anything that has that on it. Even shopping online  is harder than it used to be because of this rort  . Mind you going back that 20 years we didn’t even have online shopping for food , or anything else for that matter.

We have also changed and not for the good , the way we react to other people , in the way we talk to them or the way we take longer to trust them in anyway , trusting people now is so much harder than it ever used to be , now it takes me for 1 a long time to trust anyone after all that I have experienced over the years . Reacting with people we do not know now is so much more difficult  as you have to know them longer  to be able to relax properly in  their presence , used to be meeting others was fun  now you just have to be so very careful with everyone  you meet for the  first time. Children now are not being taught how to be honest , how to be polite , how to show respect , none of this is being taught to the children because we ” might upset them ”  really , how  wrong is that ? Even having to be careful what we teach our own children because it might not be ” politically correct ”  how wrong is that ? As a mother  I am so glad this evil  concept  was not in existence  when my children were little , as  I for 1 would have been in the deep s**t  as  I tried to teach them respect  above all else  , and that now it seems is off the  board for teaching .

Thinking these days is a skill not too many have anymore  , people  just  do not want to , because if they do they might have to stand up for something that is right , and it is all too hard for most , they would rather just ” go with the flow ” it is so much easier that way , so that is what they do , and it is just so sad  that it has all come to this . Reading all the  dreadful, evil things  that are now allowed in our schools , that are actually allowed to be taught just makes me cry. When it comes to these now so called  ” Safe schools ”  and what they teach , it is horrendous  to think that they are filling our childrens heads  with this evil and doing it because it is too hard for people to think for themselves so they sit back and let it happen. Funny thing is how so many people are now starting to complain about these things , why did they let it happen in the first place? Had they had the guts to protest instead on going with the flow they would not now be in existence.

Say What ? All of these things and it is only the tip of the iceberg  have happened because we were all too busy, too lazy, too ready to go with the flow  that it has  happened all round and now it is way too late , I have no idea how much worse it will get but it will I am sure of it , if it can be stopped or even slowed down is something else I have no idea about we will just have to wait and see.

I had cheese, but no crackers … I was cracka-lackin….

YOU LOOK LIKE I NEED ANOTHER DRINK….

There Is An App For That

There is an app for that  …How many times and in how many ways do we see this statement today  ? Seems like there is almost nothing anymore  that there is not an app for  . Almost everyday someone makes a new app for something we didn’t even realise   we   needed much less that we wanted 1 for , it never ceases to amaze me just how many  apps there are just right now , never mind the fact that there are people out there still making  more of them !! Makes you wonder why people see life as just something you need to keep making apps for  , why they think that us poor normal people  lol yes there are a few about the place  , need so many apps and  for so many things  ? Until now , meaning the last decade we seemed to get along quite nicely thank you without having  to have an app for so many things  . When we wanted to go out we just looked in the paper or went to the station for bus or train if we didn’t have a car , we didn’t need an app to tell us  when there was a bus or train  going to be there for us.

Amazing how we still got by quite nicely though isn’t it  ? We managed to go out  , do our shopping , go to the doctor,  go to shows , do whatever  without the need to sit down and check an app to find out how, when , where and why about what we wanted to do . Cannot ever remember having trouble  going out to any of these places  or doing any of these things without first checking my app to see if all was well , funny that isn’t it ? Knowing that some people will say yeah yeah because you are an old fart  you would say that , but yes ok I am , but having said that I really truly did get on and still do without a dozen or more apps  to tell me what to do . Guessing I may have about  half a dozen ( if that ) apps on my phone that I actually use , there are more but I never use them as  I do actually know how to think and get around without having to have an app tell me what to do , I still do know how to think and so wish many more people knew how to as well. Yes  I am the first to admit there are some apps that have been very useful  but  I still think we have too many for too many things , sorry but it is true , less is more remember  ?

Telling me that every new app that comes out is a  ” must have  ”  is the surest way  I know  to put me right off ever wanting it , there are very , very few things in my life that come into the category of  ” must have ”  and  I can assure  you  yet another phone app is not 1  of them. Almost sure by now that  I can do what  I need to do and have to do day by day  without having to check an app every time something needs doing , I do still have the ability  to function without an app , trust me on this lol . Well just this morning  I made coffee without an app to tell me how !! Wow !! amazing huh ? There is 1 thing  I can do without an app , and the other  day I actually did the washing without an app to tell me how , lol , see? Even you can do it if you try , you know we can even turn on the  TV and change channels and  things without an app , so you see there are a number of things we can still do without apps no need for an app at every turning so to speak .

Wondering now though ,who sat down 1 day , looked at their phone , and suddenly decided to make a whole lot of apps to put on it  , and make them so inviting that everyone and his dog will want them ? Well he  succeeded  very well for sure  because now everyone not only wants them ,too many cannot even function without them !! Sorry but to me that is just stupid as it makes the phone the intelligent 1 of the partnership. Know what they say and we have all heard this , smart phones dumb people and boy oh boy is that true now and more so every day sadly , now if we could just reverse that and start making the people smarter that would be the best way to go . The way it is now the phone and all it’s apps run the place as too many will not do anything without an app to tell them how , when ,where and why to do it and that is just wrong , talk about dumbing down the people  sheeesh .

Talking about an app for that  wouldn’t it be better if we had apps that made people realise that life  is not lived through an app  ? That people do not need an app to tell them what to do  , that they do have the capacity to think if they would only  put the damm phone down for a change and use what they were born with and learn  to think  for themselves  for a change.  Thinking about it though I am very much afraid this will never happen as people are now younger and younger when they first get phones with all these apps on them thrust into their hands and that is just wrong  but there is no way to stop it now it has become so ingrained into the world .  People  now almost as soon as they have a baby  give it a phone loaded with apps and 1 by 1 they teach them how to use them and to rely on them , they are no longer taught to interact  with other children or other people , all they are taught now is how to use  an app on a phone . This is 1 reason why  I am so very thankful that  I no longer  have to worry about  bringing children into this world . A world that is now more mechanical  than it ever was and the more like this it becomes the more the children  become like that too, which is why the children today are so selfish and have no respect , and most of them have no idea what respect even means now , the phones and apps have taken over. Given the chance  now if it was to be given to me I would say no , never would  I willingly bring a new child into this automated , uncaring world  it is just wrong and not fair to the children is it  ?

 

Being normal? Ugh. I can’t imagine how awful that must be…

I just bumped into a guy wearing a camouflage jacket. I couldn’t see him…

People ..

People … Love  them or hate them we have to deal with them everyday , unless of course you never go out and just live like a hermit miles away from civilisation . People  though you can only avoid them for so long usually , you have to talk to them 1 way or another  every single day even if you don’t want to …sheesh .. Most people on the whole are pretty reasonable  and you have no problems with them  and they cause you no grief , or very little anyway , these are the ones we mostly  deal with. There are of course a lot of people who fit  into their own categories , we will get to them in a minute , but basically the majority of people you come into contact with  are your decent , hard working people who just want to get on with life  and what they have to do . Some we have to deal with online or some on the phone  but we still have to deal with them as we just cannot  totally ignore them no matter how much we might want to.

Other people now , let’s start with the ones we see often and even though we don’t see them every day when we do it can be quite fun . Take 2 blokes we know  called Mark and  Paul , oh and let’s not forget Dimitri , so take these blokes …please  ? lol pretty please ?? Ha! Well anyway these blokes are regulars at our local pub and all 3  of them are unique in their own way ,now Mark for a start , lol, he is a funny man who seems to start yawning as soon as he get’s there and has the cheek to blame that on me , it is all my fault , how I have no idea lol. Then there is  Paul also a very funny bloke who also blames me for as much as possible  but as usual he is wrong , just as  Mark is , it is not my fault , so there , lol. Then there is  Dimitri  now he is also a funny bloke but has this habit of sneaking up behind me and putting his arms around me , lol all ok once  i get over the fright  ,lol, hubby is now on Dimitri watch  every time we go there . It just would not be the same  or have the same atmosphere without funny blokes like these , but shhhhh  I never said that  lol.

Some people though as well we know are only out for 1 thing and that is themselves , all they are dedicated to is making  themselves important and have no care what ever  for anyone they hurt along the way . These types are purely driven by money and power and other people  had best just get out of the way or they risk getting trampled on. They have an agenda and let nothing at all get in the way of that agenda especially not other people  they are just pawns in their end game . Guessing here that many others of you have met up with these types , I know  I have and they can be very hurtful as they just do what suits them and nothing more  ,and they are not 1 bit thankful  for anything you might do for them. Quite often they shrug off what you did for them and bitch about  what you didn’t do  and that’s when it can hurt very badly , when you have gone out of your way to help them , been there done that . Owing  to this type  I still have trust issues  it is hard to trust again after something like that , it brings you right down.

Then of course there are the so called leaders of all the countries , all they want to do mostly is line their own pockets first , then maybe they will try to help the country  they are supposed to be ruling . Right now there are daily clashes between  some of them and I very much fear it will all lead to another war , as they seem determined to be the ones that rule the world. World domination has now become the thing each and every country is seeming to want to do , they want it like that so they can have or do whatever they want and the people they are supposed to be protecting  are just second fiddles . Sadly there are more and more countries leaning toward this way of wanting things, it used to be if they were left alone they would all get along nicely. Now it seems more and more are eyeing other countries about them and wanting to take them over , it is just so sad and so wrong as in the end it is all fuelled by the lust for money and power.

Getting back to our blokes in the pub  they are a funny lot and  fun to be with for the short time we get to sit and wind each other up and have a drink. All of them work hard have lots to do all the time and  love to go to the pub to have a drink and unwind  and yes they all need to as work at times can be very stressful. These blokes  too will always try to help if  you need it , as will most genuine people  and that too makes it good to have a few drinks and a catch up with them . Raffle tickets though  now that is something else  lol every Friday or  Saturday  if we make it there at the right time we literally get mugged by both  Mark and  Paul , lol, ya gotta get tickets , lol, yeah right got no hope of winning , but ya gotta have them as the meat trays are well worth trying for . So yes we get our tickets and watch these 2 go round the pub  getting other people to get tickets too and it is quite funny watching them do it , they have a style all their own.

Love em or hate em these sorts of funny blokes make the world a happier place for  the short times you get to have with them  , it is good to catch up with them always  and always a lot of fun. Pubs may not be for everyone but we have found them to be mostly relaxing and a good place for a giggle , anytime that changes , as it did recently with 1 such pub we just leave it , we just want a nice place with nice people to relax with for a while . Nice staff with good senses of humor also helps make the place a more relaxing place to be . …

Sometimes, numbers are the only thing you can truly count on….

Instead of “lol”, try “lsimhbiwfefmtalol”. Laughing� silently in my head because it wasn’t funny enough for me to actually laugh out loud…..

Spoiled For Choice

Spoiled for choice … Have you noticed just how spoiled for choice the world has now become ? You try going to buy something , have you ever seen just 1 brand of that product  ? Have you ever seen a display that says  there is only 1 kind of item ? No you haven’t  because every single thing  we buy has so many types, colours, brands, levels of expense  that it just blows the mind , there will be so many different prices for the 1 product that it makes your head spin , you try to work out now, do I get the most expensive  ? Do I get the middle of the road price  ? Do I go for the cheapest? The thing that annoys me most is that this 1 item is exactly the same no matter what you pay for it  so deciding  to go cheap or go expensive really makes no difference  but the companies selling these things don’t want you to know this as they depend on our  getting sick of trying to work out which  1 to get just makes them more money.

What are the odds of getting a bad 1 out of all these things  ? Not very big as it is the same thing every time  just marketed differently  so you will be fooled into getting the more expensive 1 of them so making more money for the big boys . The odds of  everyone just going to get the cheaper 1 of them is not very big  so it is well worth them letting some go cheap and even then they still make  money . Marketing is such big business these days that people now make a whole career out of it , and it is taught as a separate subject on it’s own. Marketing  is so advanced now they can just about sell ice to  Eskimos , they can take this 1 product and make it sound so different for each category they are selling it in, make it sound expensive  for the up market , make it sound pretty good for next level , then make it seem a real bargain for the next level . Doing this makes it all work so well and we do not even stop to consider that for all of these approaches we are still talking about the same product  it is just how it is presented that makes the difference .

Wonder what  the difference would be if they were advertised  the right way  ? Without all the hype , without all the fancy displays , just telling the truth , lol yeah right , never let the truth get in the way of a good sale …So 1 product ,3 or more different ways of presenting it and 3 or more different prices for the same product , they love it as it makes them a lot of money and it will not stop anytime soon . Having said that the sales would end , the displays would be boring  and the staff would not have to help sell the most expensive and they would get bored  , so that is why it will never change can’t have   staff getting bored or boring displays  or all the same price now can we ? Even though as we know they are all the same thing just sold differently to make more money . It works so well because we are just too busy or too lazy or too rich ( lol yeah sure )  to be bothered  looking at it in the right way. Sales are all made to look so exciting and so good we all fall for them and love them , but how many of us will wait for a sale to get what we want? That is when the thing is at the price it should be not what they were selling it for.

Imagine if you will an electrical store  they have a ton of  TV’s a lot with very little differences but they are sold as though this 1 is a ton better than that 1 and this 1 can do a heap more than that 1 , but in actual fact  they are pretty much the same thing . Then look at any electrical thing  so many things so many ways to sell and a lot of it really just not correct at all . They all come from the same company more often than not , maybe just put in different boxes so they look different  but basically just the same thing . So many times I myself have bought a cheaper thing  maybe on sale maybe not but have never had any problem  with it despite the staff trying to get me to get the more expensive 1 . Never ceases to amaze me how many different prices there can be for 1 single thing , so imagine how they get away with  just changing 1 little thing in a box or a pamphlet  or something and we are fooled into thinking it is different but it is not.

Advertising is another thing that now has it’s own  thing going , it too is now a job and indeed  a future all on it’s own , selling the same thing  ar 3 or more different levels  and making it work . Anyone in this area makes a very good living and yes good luck to them they have made  a career out of selling us  what we want but at the price they want not what we want . Good luck to them they have found a way of making a living in an area most of us have no idea about, as  I said earlier  we are either too busy or too lazy to do do any research  so we just go along with it  and often end up paying more than we should for things we buy.

Anyway as  i said things would be very boring if they were sold in the correct way and all for the same price as they quite often should be , the displays would be boring with just 1 or 2 things on it and  staff would have nothing much to do anymore . About the only thing we would have to choose is what colour we want it in  , lol , that would save a lot of time for sure  but at least we would know that they really are all the same . The day this happens I think I would faint if ever they sold things by telling the truth and not try to talk us into things at a more expensive price than we really need to pay .

An easy way to “have your cake and eat it, too” is to buy two cakes…

 

I’m undecided what to do today 🙂 I know what I SHOULD be doing, but hey, since when have I ever done what I SHOULD when I can get away with doing what I WANT ?!

 

Why Did You ?

Why did you  ?  Join Facebook  or as  I call it  Faceache  ? What made you decide this was a good idea  ? Did you decide by yourself or did someone else  help you decide  ? Or were you taken in by all the advertising  that went on at the time all this started ? Me personally I only went on it because a woman I worked with at the time came to our place  and actually stood over me and said ” well come on get on with it ” lol and  as you can imagine once in stuck in . So that is the reason I got on it  what is yours ? Who or what made you do it ? Did you join because you really wanted all the crap that goes with it at times  ? Or just  the mostly connection with others , the games , a way to keep in touch with family , a way to learn ? There are so many reasons you might have joined  that it would be  probably impossible to work them all out right now .

Twitter  now  did you join twitter as well ? A lot of people seem to find their way  from Faceache to twitter in due course  as we both did and we do have a lot of fun with both , we learned to not take very much of it too seriously  , and with twitter  I just mainly have a giggle  though to be fair I also get a lot of news from there way before the media get it and that can be good at times . There are people though who seem to get on both just to look for trouble and see how much they can hurt people , but thankfully they are few and far between. Most people I know who are on both are just very nice people and we have met quite a lot of them in real life . Will never work out why people want to take it all too seriously  sometimes as  I said before , when all it is meant for is a bit of fun and a few games , and connection to family and friends. Sometimes too for housebound people or those with  reasons why they cannot go out very  much  it is a great way to keep up with everyday life  and to learn more from all the pages that are on there .

So to be fair to what is now called social media  they do have a real lot of good things they provide , a way to learn  of things you might never know any other way  as not everyone has access to everything  they need to know and this  social media we now all use  is a good way to keep in touch . When all this first started a lot of people  just said no worries it will be gone in a month or two it won’t last , they said that too about the internet itself  when it was first brought  into being  and almost everyone underestimated  it , said it wont be a thing it will soon be gone . Like mobile phones too when they first came into being they were like bricks  to carry and could only do one thing and that was to make and receive phone calls when you were out . Look at them now and like the internet there is almost nothing you cannot do on either of them the technology has come so far now .

Still not convinced  that all the technology is a good thing  I think  they are going too far with a lot of it now  but it will never stop it will keep going to who knows where . When we join up for all these things now do we ever really know how much of an intrusion  into our lives  they will turn out to be  ? I rather doubt it as now in such a small thing like a phone we are able to take faceache and twitter and even our e mails and our banking with us wherever we go , to me that’s a bit scary  but it can’t be stopped now . So anyway back to why did you join , there are so many reasons it might be fun to know  but like  I said I was ordered into it , but having said that  it has and still is at times been a lot of fun , a little drama  but then that is what life is right  ?

Even though I like being able to keep up with all things  in the news and with family  there are times when  I just walk away and say nope not now I need some time away , I need some me time . I am not one of those  who cannot go a minute without checking all the time looking all the time to see if someone liked  something you did or  asked you a question. Heaven forbid that you miss someone liking something or a game request  or a comment or something . That can all wait with me as when I say I’m out it means just that and I get back when it suits me not faceache or twitter or anything else , I run them not  them me and it will always be like that I do not care if I am out of reach for a while  I will catch up when I want to nothing’s that important , well not to me anyway.

Another thing a lot of people do is go into chat rooms and meet up at a set time each day to chat about the days  goings on or what we are planning to do , sometimes we can pass on links to things and pictures and  help each other out . I love these times we do not stay that long just long enough to make sure our chat friends are all ok  and their families . An hour or so is enough and you can meet lovely people there  I have met  a lot of lovely people  from chat , even married 1 of them  lol. It just seems to me to be relaxing  just to sit and chat , it almost seems like we are all in the room together  not miles away from each other . So whatever the reason you joined  do you still like it or do you feel trapped? Feel like you can never be free again or does it control you  ? If it does then you have a big problem and you need to take charge of it , not let it keep controlling you.

Facebook isn’t a waste of time, it’s important, it um, let’s me, um, yeah OK it’s a waste of time but you do it too!

To pull or to push this is a question almost everyone gets wrong , this is more than obvious  when you watch people opening doors  cannot count the amount of times  I have sat and giggled watching people do this.  Almost every time if it says pull they push , or if it says  push they pull  it has always fascinated me  that almost everyone  gets it wrong , makes me wonder if it is just that our brains are wired up to just do it wrong and we cant help it  or are we just too busy and too rushed to wait a split second to read what it actually says. Must admit it is a very long time since anyone I have ever seen  actually stopped and read it first  they just give it a shove and wait to see what happens  then do what is correct to get the door open. We are a silly lot  I think in that no matter how many times we  do it  , we still just keep on doing it  , pushing instead of pulling or pulling instead of  pushing , lol doubt we will ever change any time soon.

To pull or push can also be used as a term for other things too in that in everyday life sometimes we have a situation where we need to either push for it , or pull away a bit for a while . Funny thing is that in these situations we take a lot of time to make the right decisions , but when it comes to a door ( especially a door )  we take no seconds to try to go through it  the way you are supposed to , and do not look to see if we need to pull or push. Sometimes if it is a window we may take a second or two  to look and see what to do  and actually do it right , but a door ? lol  no way no how we just automatically flip off the part of the brain that should check to see if it is pull or push . Same can be said of some packages when we get them they can be boxed in such a way  that you can never be sure if you  need to push the cover out or pull it  in to open it but one thing for sure we take our time to read directions because  they are not on a door  .

There are just so many things that require either a push or a pull on a switch or a knob or a button , lol some people too need a push or a pull , but as stated before it dosen’t matter what it is as long as it is not a door we generally get it right .Seems to me that if it is  a  TV or a radio or a washing machine or anything like that we have next to no trouble getting them started or turned off . Taking time to read the directions  just does not seem to be a problem  as long as it isn’t a door with push or pull written on it ( Amazing ) . Cannot think of too many things that do not require a push or a pull to activate them or turn them off and we have no problems doing so , and we do it without even thinking about it , but come to a door and….bingo  we push or pull without even engaging  what passes for a brain so we do not even read it , clever aint we  ?  lol nope …

So what can we do about this affliction  every one of us seems to have  ? What can we do to try and switch on a sensor that says  hey wait !! Read the writing on the door first !!  It will only take a nano second  and then we can go through ? Will we ever learn or will it all be too hard because we have been doing  it for so long that a cure is impossible ? I am guessing it is way too late to get people to stop and think ( lol yeah that will be the day ) before they try to go through a door , we have passed the point of no return . If and when someone works out how to achieve it then they will make a million or three when they teach the rest of us how to do it . Until then I guess we will all keep on doing it  , pushing when we should be pulling etc etc etc  lol no hope for us is there  ?? Maybe we just need to replace all those pesky doors with fully automated doors that realise we will never learn so open up for us . They see us coming and just save us the bother  of trying to sort out pull from push and just open, what nice little doors they are  ..lol . Should be more of them to save us all the pain of having to decide between the hard  job of working out whether to pull or push  as it is such a hard job and we are just not equipped for it or so it seems , lol we are hopeless really ..

 

I slept in this morning… Now I have less time to do nothing  

 

How I can remember that I forgot something but can’t remember what the heck I forgot?
