Irritants


Caption for the above: Smart ad

Thought for the day: All's well that ends.
(No, I did not forget a word)
Irritants of the first order:

Have you ever wondered why some instructions/questions are so silly, nee, stupid.
For example, if you are installing a program (Even Windows XP)on your computer which you really need, why does it ask:
‘I agree to the terms and conditions’. Yes or No.
I mean, if I want the program, why would I say ‘No’?

Or, if you press the delete key, why does it ask ‘Are you sure you want to send so-and-so to the recycle bin?’
Arre, baba, I would prefer to send it beyond the recycle bin, so, why do you ask? How many times do you mistakenly press delete during a day? Not more than once or twice, I am sure.

Still on irritants, it’s something similar to someone asking:

In a movie hall: Come to see a movie?
(Next time someone asks, I’ll say ‘No, I came to see how many people come to see this movie.’, or, ‘No, I am the watchman’)
At the entrance to office building: Hello, going to office?
(I feel like replying ” No, I am just walking backwards, out of the building.:)

Now, since we are still on things which are irritating, how about this one:


Word Verification on blogs. You write a nice, long comment, and, it vanishes…why? Because the verification letters you wrote were incorrect. Now, if a q resembles a g in the multi-coloured letters which come in the verification. (Hint: people who use this, please remove it. Grin)

Enough of irritants. So, a bit of humour:
How about the following erudite Instructions:

"How to store your baby walker: First, remove baby." - Anonymous Manufacturer

How do you like this erudite quote:

"I think that the film Clueless was very deep. I think it was deep in the way that it was very light. I think lightness has to come from a very deep place if it's true lightness." - Alicia Silverstone, Actress
----

On to the end-jokes:


Cute pickup lines:

- You make me melt like hot fudge on a sundae.

- Hi, I'm Mr. Right. Someone said you were looking for me.
- Is there an airport nearby or is that my heart taking off?

- Do you have any raisins? No? How about a date?
- Are you a tamale? 'Cause you're hot.-Are you accepting applications for your fan club?

- Are my undies showing? Answer: "No." You: "Would you like them to?
----
Till next time, keep smiling.

okay mera hi hai! LOL@ the pic..speaking of those irritating instructions like "First, remove baby" well I am sure someone or the other down the road didn't do it and then filed a lawsuit to win a gazillion bucks and then the companies were forced to make such instructions. Like I bought a new chair and the warning on the plastic covering on the chair says "this is not a toy" Sigh - add that to your "it happens only in america" list!

ROFL@ the undies pick up line..

BTW I read Who moved my cheese - zor ka jhatka dheere se lagaave!

I think the post was very deep. Very deep in the sense, it was very light. Lightness came from the light feeling that one feels after deeply reading the post. ;-) I hope you are getting my point.

Shreya said...

LOL @ irritants and their annoying questions. Btw, I have found myself asking those questions to people out of force of habit, just to get, you know, the conversation going :P But it is hilarious to poke fun at such questions nonetheless!! :D
