Those Wet Floors

Ever come across the increasing sophisticated sign "Wet Floor: Caution" placed on the floor, and the cleaner continues to "paint" the whole breadth of the floor wet? And you wondered why?

I looked in dismay when I saw the cleaned floor started having patterns of different shoe prints as people just walked on the wet floor, albeit with care lest they slipped and fell. The cleaner nonchalantly went about his cleaning the floor with the mop, as if appreciating the additional designs to the wet floor.

Watch the mopping of the floor the next time and share with me how the cleaner does it. The right way, the wrong way, or perhaps the colourful way. (^^)

A small man's complaint in the big world

Complaining and getting it heard is one thing. Getting something done is yet another thing.

I suppose a small man's complaint could be heard and shifted aside, say in a KIV (keep in view) file, to be pushed into the trash after a while. But when a big man complaints, it is different. But this is the world.

But we could still continue griping until some big men or women take notice of it and decide to adopt it. I guess in this internet age, we have this slight advantage in that so long we get it published, many will read. And hopefully, the empowered one will also get to read. (^^)

That is my dream as I start griping about many everyday issues that bug me to no end. I must simply get it off my chest. And hopefully, strike a chord with some of you. (^^)

I certainly love to hear your gripes too. But remember, I am just a small man. (^^)
