Another funny side of things, when things are not designed to go our way.
We are at my daughter’s place for Christmas. We had a brunch, rested a while, my wife and I had decided to go for a long walk. We would have walked through the flat’s main door and the building main door hundreds of time.
Opening and closing the door with the keys should be robotic, right? On our way home, I could not open the building main door. It took me more than 10 mins before the key worked. My wife gave me a look implying this old man must have lost his trick!
The same thing happened to the flat door. We did not double lock it. We just shut the door and went out. However hard I tried, I could not open the door at all. I struggled with it for another 15 minutes. It just won’t open.
Thinking, I was probably having some funny moment, she took the key from me and tried herself. Bingo ! The door just opened.
As I looked at her in totally disbelief, she laughed at my stupidity and said, “you can’t keep things simple. Like everything, you will have to over research, over complicate things - like Miele Dishwasher, the coffee machine….”.
I jokingly asked her, do I look like an idiot to you? She quietly replied isn’t it obvious ?
She is eagerly waiting for my daughter to wake up to set me up! 😂
While I am still thinking what just happened with that door thing, I wonder some times, do we actually complicate simple things in life like a cup of coffee. Is it all unnecessary ? I am not materialistic and do not have any attachments towards them?
Why do we care so much about these ? Look at the forums where people are constantly grabbing each other’s throat? Why can’t they be all friendly? It’s after all a cup of coffee!
