People watching is quite the fascinating
obsession hobby which I enthusiastically enjoy. People are incredibly revealing when they are unaware that they’re being stalked observed moodling about their day going about their routines. Have you ever been on the inside of an office building that had reflective windows on the street side? Ever seen people get lost in their appearance and start making adjustments? Some are sad, some are humorous, and some are almost obscene! (if you have an itch that causes your hands to disappear into the sanctity of your garments….please consider seeking medical attention).
I watched one person read the sign on the door that clearly said CLOSED, then this person reached out and tried to open the door, found it locked, looked at their watch, checked the door again, looked at the sign again. As the sign had not changed, the watch was checked again, then the door was checked again. Still locked, this routine went on for 20 minutes before this person decided to toddle off to the next destination of their day.
While perusing the local Best Buy for killing time, I observed some teens playing the video game on display. They were twisting and weaving the controller every which way. If the game had a left turn, they turned the controller left and leaned their body and head to the left. I had to chuckle because I’ve done the same thing.
I’m always amazed by signs. Why? Take the one posted above for example. If you’ve ever been anywhere close to any human or animal, then you should know by now that they will bite, kick, and fart in your general direction. Some will spit, spew, belch, and even fling poo. Do you REALLY need a sign to warn you to be cautious? Do we REALLY need someone to remind us that coffee is hot or that alcohol will impair your fabulous driving skills, or that brick walls and cars don’t mix well, or that feeding you hamburger to the monkeys will get you a case of Who-Flung-Doo? Do we REALLY believe that everyone else is supposed to look out where we walk, drive, wander whilst texting or chatting on the cellphone?
Sometimes I wonder if animals would be much happier if the roles were reversed and they could have warning signs about us. Hmmmm…
One last thing…NO SMOKING AROUND FARTERS!
