While Pottering About At Home In Norfolk

Three Little Questions

with one comment

But first, here’s how the baps turned out last night –


Will be giving them a taste test this evening with a couple of rashers of lovely unsmoked back bacon from our butcher.  Mmmmm………

Oh yeah, the questions!

  1. IF these Dettol Wipes/Spray kill 99.9% of all germs/bacteria/viruses, why don’t the hospitals wipe down/spray every available surface with it?  Or are the germs/bacteria/viruses they have trouble keeping at bay in that 00.1%? Acutally this is a question posed by BH who thinks they should also be using the stuff on the patients themselves 😀
  2. In the Gaviscon advert – who decided that the helicopter crew’s uniforms should match the colour of the product box??
  3. Why, when people ring someone and get the answer phone, do the majority let the recording run full through before hanging up? Is it because they’re hoping whoever will pick it up prior to the end of the recording?  In my own personal experience, most people set the answer phone to come on after more than just a couple of rings.  If they were anywhere in the vicinity and heard the phone AND wanted to talk, they would have picked up.  If they are there and are using the machine to “screen” calls and they wouldn’t mind talking to you, they will never know it’s you if you don’t SAY SOMETHING!  One of life’s little irritations is checking the machine and seeing that you have 6 new messages  –  5 of which are ‘hang-ups’!
