Check The Clock

So it should be so easy…


We manage time by the hours and minutes–and moments of life. 


This sign was hilarious though:

Breakfast 6 am – 10 am
Lunch 11 am – 2 pm
Dinner 4 pm – 7 pm
We are here to serve you any time.

Really, if you’re here to serve us any time, then isn’t that mean around the clock–24/7–and not just the total 10 hours listed?


What a ridiculous contradiction!


It reminded me of another crazy story of the person who when you ask what time it is, they tell you how to make the watch.


Yes, the point has definitely been missed by the other person.


Their explanation may be very detailed and even accurate on how to make a watch, but frankly they missed the point altogether, which was simply what time is it!


We need to pay attention to our communications and be honest and actually say what it is, and not beat around the 24-hour bush. 😉

Not Exactly A Genie

Umbrella Bottle
Okay, we all like a genie in a bottle (with G-d’s help) to grant us our wishes for the good. 



A colleague told me that if he had a genie in a bottle, his first wish would be to have infinite wishes; his second wish would be for all his wishes to come true; and his third wish would be that all the wishes would be free of ambiguity such that the intent would be fully clear–nice!



But this is no genie…this is an umbrella in a bottle. 



Twist the top (handle) and pull it from the bottle (case) and whoola, an umbrella. 



Cute design, but when I tried to open the umbrella, it felt functionally, like a piece of garbage (IMHO). 



Oh genie, how about an umbrella that actually works and who cares if it’s in a bottle or not. 😉
