A typical day at the office.

A typical day at the office.

“You lost again”, T said, as if to show everyone he knows the results beforehand.  He is showing off his shallow character by saying it out.  D, laughing, came to his boss, talking something else.  Beside their talking, E was sitting listening intensely.  This makes life interesting, she thought.  She is particularly interested in clothing and human relationship.  Those topics tickle her to the extreme.  The more fuss, the more interesting.

She was laughing — a vulgar laugh.  Beside her, J was saying “I was right”.  Her outlook and behavior would remind you more of that of a typical teenager, acting like what you see on TV programs.  “Oh,” she would say.  “I did not know that”, in a shrill voice with a look.  “Really?”  Probably it is fair to say, her interests in people — typified with her frequent reference to ‘private’ life — do not exactly coinside with others in the office.  Everyone, has already the life of their own.  They are not asking for any interference to change it.

“Thanks,” D said.  He is so conceited to full, it is everyone’s expectation that anything has been said worth thanking him.  It would take some time for him to understand noone is showing him gratitude.  He has a high voice that sounds like a bad neighbor shrieking at every fault in front of him.


TV

Those TV programs are adjusted to low level, say high school, which is notoriously ‘rough’ or is being no place to learn.  All is due to education.  This is due to the lack of standards, the level of knowledge that you could assume from the viewers.

Their idea is this — not let the users think.  That is to be avoided at all cost.  When they do bring arguments, the answers are already there that the users can follow.

It should not be fear they play with.  With forward thinking, that should be the image of what is happening to people right next to you.  Those programs should give you that sort of idea — that will give you the hint that you should avoid doing.

It is simply this.  You look at people on screen eating and decided not to go out to eat.  They are not cool.  They are fat.  TV programs have those sort of impacts.

Or, you look at people spending money foolishly.  They do not look smart.  They are lazy.  TV programs tell you something.
