I swear to God that there are times when I come into contact with someone and think “how on earth are you managing to walk and breathe at the same time?” You know what I mean, you’re sitting having a coffee and people-watching when you see someone who makes you open-mouthed stare.There are some seriously stupid people out there. I’m not talking about the times when all of us can be absent minded, losing car keys, forgetting what you went into a room for or putting things into a saucepan for tea and not turning it on (only finding it out 35 minutes later when it’s meant to be ‘done’!). That’s just the brain playing tricks on us by rebooting at the most inopportune times. I can also exclude the older generations and their issues with technology; we grew up learning how to programme computers, using technology as part of everyday life – they did not, and they have a healthy distrust for anything that makes their lives easier. I’m talking about the types of people who would follow their Sat-Nav into a river/over the harbour wall. They have absolutely no common sense whatsoever.
If you want examples of the type of people I mean, go and Google the Darwin Awards. These are the Kings & Queens of the Monumentally Dumb. You’re welcome.
