I could write a whole series of things which ‘happen’ and puzzle me, but I don’t think I will.
However, some things do puzzle me about this world we live in. Two instances over the last 48 hours…
The first is the ‘I hate people DJ’. I don’t really listen to radio DJ’s – Radio 4 does ‘presenters’ if I’m in the mood to let someone talk at me. But at the weekend I listened to Radio 6 Music (I quite like their playlist) and smiled as the presenter, who shall remain nameless, read out a ‘request’.
It went something like, “can you play me Age of Aquarius – it’s my favourite song of all time”. The presenter (delighted that someone had written in) then said, “well we can’t today, but I’ll see if I can dig that out in a future show”. The good news is though that they did play a tune for Mr Smith in Cardiff – Pretty Vacant by the Sex Pistols…
The second (bear with me) is that I was in a lift with one other person yesterday. I chose floor 2 and he chose floor 4. We both managed to get the lights on the buttons on. A lady then got in at the next floor down and clearly needed my floor. She checked the light was on for floor two and, you guessed it, pressed the button again!
It’s as if she needed to remind the lift in case it need a reminder. In case it had forgotten since I had pressed the button seconds earlier. Lifts can be stupid I suppose.
Puzzling. Like tofu – but thats another story entirely.
