What Type Of Person Are You?

Which type of person are you?

You approach the check out aisle at your local gigundo supermarket but you don't have a shopping cart with you. Instead, you have the little red riding hood hand held basket. It's swinging delightedly at your side full of horrible treats. It's your turn up at bat, so you unload your treacherous comestibles and place them one-by-one on the little conveyor belt that delivers them to the adorable clerk behind the register. Now, it's time to figure out who you are.

You've got to discard your little basket under the front section of the counter. Below it, you will find other baskets. They are designed to fit inside one another neatly. However, you notice that the last person to place one has done it haphazardly and it is askew at some nutty angle. It is half in and half out of the basket below it. Now, it's time to figure out who you are.

Are you the person who figures that since one person screwed up the order of things you may as well give-in to their carelessness and just continue the cascading jenga-tower of misplaced baskets?

Or are you the person who takes five seconds and reaches down to fix things. Do you nudge the pile of baskets so that the faulty one on top clunks down into its perfect position so that yours will fit in snugly like it's supposed to?

I like to think that you, dear reader, are the second type of person.

Yeah, I'm a 2. That's why I live by myself, despite not being able to afford it, because 2s are magnets for 1s!

A 2 all the way. But you're likely to have skewed results from this informal survey as a 1 probably won't bother to comment.

Hey, maybe you could delete that misogynist comment above? Thx!
I always fix the stack of baskets.

Henning unfortunately suffers from chronic back problems so he needs a good misogynist. Ba-dum-dum. No, but seriously, let's not delete anyone's comment but rather point out to the writer that they neglected to claim authorship of their ideas. A cynic might wonder whether the author of these statements is hiding behind a mask of anonymity. Surely no one with such bold views would do such a thing.

After fixing the baskets, I also straighten the magazines.

Henning said...

Sorry, Tony (antwes). I deleted it.

Mostly because, the writer was desperately trying to be funny, but it was painful how unfunny he was.
