The Competent Looks
I have the competent looks and it begins to annoy me.
Let me explain. When I do shopping with my wife and I am standing parked uselessly in some corner of the shop, people - usually women - approach me. No, not what you might now fantasize (I'll wait until you're finished .... ok? ok). They usually ask me where the bathroom is. Or when I rush to some meeting, a tourist will ask me for directions.
But this is only one part of the story. What annoys me is that whatever I tell people, they do the exact opposite.
Well, I am used to the fact that my mom does not listen to me. Of course she knows more about everything. Including Linux, of course. But this incredulity in my wisdom words now has spread from my mom to the rest of the world. Bugger.
So the next time someone asks me for directions, I will tell a complete lie. The punter will then do the exact opposite and will succeed. Evil is good. Good is evil.
