Thinking For Dummies

thinking_monkey-300x253

Thinking isn’t too hard once you get the hang of it.  But most people meander through their mediocre lives seemingly oblivious to the fact that this isn’t a dress rehearsal – this is it. The worst part about thinking is you can think too much and goof up your day.

Like PIN numbers.  Every time I use my ATM card, the machine asks for my pin number.  When I type in the four digits, it shows “XXXX” and then asks “Is this your pin number?”

Well of course XXXX isn’t my pin number but if I press “no” I’ve got to start all over again. And I must keep inserting my card until I answer “Yes”.  In other words, I’ve got to lie to the damn ATM  to get my own money on which I’ll be charged a hefty fee plus an additional fee by my bank because I didn’t use their inconvenient ATM.

Once I walked up to my bank’s ATM and inserted my card.  When it asked for my pin number,  I typed “XXXX”.  The friggin’ machine shot out my card so fast I thought it would hit the ground.

People are as boring with their pin numbers as they are in their lives.  A recent poll showed about 1/3 of all adults use: 1-2-3-4-5, or a-b-c-d-e  or some derivation of those.  I guess they think they can remember those but since they don’t have much else about which to think, they should make a little more effort not to be such dullards.
