They say letting your feelings out to others is good therapy,
a problem shared is a problem halved and all that.....
I watched TV the other day with Katie,
we were watching her program on a kids channel.
Then the adverts came on, most these days are "Cilit Bang"
"Vanish carpet cleaner" "Detox surface wipes"...
It has just occurred to me that these adverts are not aimed at the children,
they are aimed at the adults sitting with the children, ooh I get it now.....
Anyway, this one advert had me stunned..
It was an advert showing the terrible germs we have on our hands.
Guess what we do with these germs before we wash them off.....
No?... OK, I can see you're struggling.
We pass them from our hands to the PUMP DISPENSER FULL OF SOAP!!!!
Lawks a mercy, what is the world coming to!!!!!!!
Yes these horrible, horrible germs, are passed to the pump dispenser top ......
These are aliens, but they play the part of you going "OOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHH !!!!!!"
(OK, stay with me on this)
So there I was, aghast at the idea that the terrible, horrible germs would actually go onto the pump dispenser. I wracked my brains in a quest to find what could be the answer to this dreadful conundrum........ (bare with me)
"I know !!!" Said some over paid ten year old in a board room somewhere...
"Wouldn't it be good if we didn't actually touch the dispenser with our horrible dirty,
germy hands????!!!!" said the ten year old board room executive..
"Heavens ten year old boy" Yelled the over paid fat cat boss man,
"how will it actually work if you don't touch it????"
"Well Boss Man, there would be a mechanism inside that sensed there were germy,
grimy hands nearby and dispense a squirt of liquid soap onto the germy,
grimy hands!!!!" Wailed the ten year old boy...
"Genius" Bellowed the Fat Cat Boss Man, "and we can charge an extortionate price for such a revolutionary gadget. We can put a "Was £10 now £6.66" on the price ticket so everyone will feel they are getting a good deal, Well done son..."
