Little Things Amuse Me

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 27, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Sometimes it is the really mundane which amuses, things which cannot be explained to anyone else, no matter how hard you try. Take the Tumblr log-in page as an example. When I call the page up on the Internet, my name and password appear in the right boxes ready for me, for about half a second. Unlike with every other (non https) web site, they disappear and I have to click on the box to highlight them. Fine, but what happens when I forget?

Yes, Tumblr, you are quite right, you do need to put something in here. Their 404 page is also amusing, telling visitors that the site they have sought no longer exists, unless they happen to be searching for the 404 page, in which case they are congratulated, having found it.

Other things amuse not just me.

I don’t know how long Harper have been publishing books – and I’m not going to check – much the same as I don’t know how long they have been on Twitter. Amusing to see the interaction, though, between people in the same company, suggesting that a mutual follow should, perhaps , have happened quite a while back.

Perhaps they’re like every single customer service department you care to name, and no one talks to anyone else, no matter how close their cubicle may be.

Finally, I find this one both amusing and very sad indeed.

You see, there are absolutely no other means to communicate with a person with a flat battery in their smart phone. Our limited social technological advances haven’t got as far as pay phones, Skype, e-mail or, dare I hope for the future, postal mail.

Love & Kisses, Viki.
