More often than not, my belief in human intelligence is questioned by the brainless acts of a few individuals from the human race. Take this for example:
Now, I get that some of you will probably just shrug this off by saying that “it’s such a small thing, it’s no big deal.” But I’d like to question you back, if it’s such a small and simple thing, how can it happen in the first place? How can the act of simply putting something back where it belongs to be too hard for human beings?
Before I proceed any further, I’d like to clear up what I’m trying to point out in the photo. It’s a picture showing a storage shelf (10) which has been moved from its place on the left onto another pile on its right, made for utility shelves (11).
I simply cannot brain such stupidity (see, even my English has gone haywire). Even if you have to move the pieces on top to see the pieces at the bottom, is it that hard to simply move the ones you moved back to their original positions? Are these people simply unappreciative of the work done by the workers there to place everything in the positions they are in now? Imagine how you would feel if you conjured up a fifteen paragraph essay only for some stranger to come and mix your paragraphs around, forcing you to come and fix it up back into its original position every time.
Once again, I question if there is any benefit to such actions. Or is it simply one of those things that people just do without ever sparing a thought on how it might affect others? The only effects that I can think of are bad ones, such as causing an inconvenience (albeit minor) to other shoppers who have to deal with the mess they made. Why should you ever expect anyone else to clean up after you? Can’t these people comprehend the simple concept of cleaning up one’s own trash?
The brainless acts don’t stop here, as later that day I encountered something I consider a bane of society: public toilets. It doesn’t need a society of geniuses to be able to keep a clean, flushed toilet. It’s simply a matter of cleaning up after oneself; exactly the same concept applied in the previous matter mentioned. Furthermore, don’t these people flush their toilets when they’re at home? If they can do that in the privacy of their own homes, why can’t they extend the same courtesy in public when others are involved too?
Reverting back to the original topic, I do realise the possibility that it could’ve just been a misplacement, a small mistake. However, I am using that picture only as an example. Haven’t you ever seen such things yourself?
