You Can Lead A Horse To Water, Part 3

| | Right | October 1, 2008

(A customer walks into my video rental store on Christmas Eve 2005; it’s about 9 pm.)

Customer: “Are you open?”

Me: “Are the lights on?”

Customer: “What?”

Me: “Are the lights on?”

Customer: “Yes…”

Me: “Was the door unlocked?”

Customer: “Well, yeah…”

Me: “Have you ever been somewhere that was closed when the lights were mon and the doors were open?”

Customer: “No.”

Me: “So, you understand now!”

Customer: “No. Are you open or not?”

    How hard is it to say yes or no and not being a smartass?

      How hard is it to turn on your brain and think about what the questions mean?

        And yet…there are many stories on this very site where the lights are on and the doors are unlocked, and yet the store is closed (renovation, evacuation, closed but not locked yet, etc).

    The true title should be: you can lead an idiot to use their brain but you can’t make them think.
