One more word that personifies human nature: CONFUSION.
Too Many Options, What to Choose?
v “Sir, what would you love to have; Pizza, Pizza Sandwiches, Garlic Bread, Brownie or Burritos?
v “Veg or Non-Veg?”
v “Veg. I would……”
v “We have Woodcutters, Crisp and Lite, Ultimate Veg, Supreme Veg…..”
v “One Supreme Veg please.”
v “What would you like you Pizza crust like; Pan, Regular, Regular Crisp or Thin Crisp?”
v “No Cheese or Extra Cheese?”
v “JUST BRING WHATEVER YOU WANT TO BRING FOR ME NOW, OR ELSE I’LL LOSE MY HUNGER.”
Gosh, why do these guys have so many options? With an intention to eat a pizza; since it had been a month I had one; I came to Smokin’ Joe’s. With all the dishes’ names already filling my mind; I almost lost my hunger and interest for pizza at the moment. This made me think, “There are so many things out there with options.”
v Burgers: Veg Burger, Mayo Burger, Cheese Burger, Chicken Burger, Fish Burger, Burger Ham, Spicy Veg Burger, Spicy Chicken Burger, etc.
v Coffee: Regular Coffee, Cold Coffee, Cappuccino, Espresso Coffee, etc.
v Cold drinks: Coca Cola, Pepsi, Thumbs Up, Mirinda, Sprite, etc.
v Body Lotions: Regular, for Dry skin, for Sensitive Skin, for Tanned skin, containing Aloe Vera.
v Shampoo: Regular, for Dry Scalp, for Dandruff, for Hair falls, for Oily scalp, etc.
And I can go on with this whole day. We go to buy something; we end being surrounded by OPTIONS. It makes even a simple grocery shopping so difficult. Perhaps being one of the reasons why women spend hours of Shopping on dresses, cosmetics, jewels, make-ups, treatments in beauty parlor, etc. Listening or referring to options itself gets me tired. And what if we surpass the options and make up our minds to actually buy something?
v “Doesn’t look that good. I’ll get another dress.”
v “Maybe this won’t be a good dish; I’d better change my order.”
v “I guess this product won’t last long. That other one seems good.”
v “This is costly. I’d better choose something cheap.”
v “Doesn’t have many facilities like the other place. I’ll try out there too.”
After options, these are one of the common confusions. Now, surpassing this stage soon and quickly is rarely noticed; for us humans think dozen times on useless things; but don’t ever care to think for what’s actually important for us. That’s why we mess up the things in the end, and all we do is blame others or circumstances in the end.
Luckily, when you pass this stage and get the product you chose; you are indeed later bound to think the following sentences.
v “Ah, this dress is too stylish for me. The first I had chosen was better.”
v “Well, this dish is fine; but I guess that other dish would have been better.”
v “This product has more quantity, but less quality. I should have taken the previous one.”
v “Cheap things will always be cheap; No Quality at all. I should have taken the costly ones; at least I would have got better quality product.”
v “Though this place has great facilities; it’s Too Costly. I should have been happy with the first one I saw.”
However modern the world gets; human will always be human, THE MOST CONFUSED SPECIES ON THIS PLANET. Why is it so difficult for us to just go out there, make up our mind on one particular thing and buy it? We just don’t want to improve, isn’t it? All we like is options. When we don’t have them, we say “AH, NO OPTIONS AT ALL.” AND when we have them, we say “THERE ARE TOO MANY OPTIONS TO CHOOSE FROM.” And we go out there to improve the world; so FUNNY, ISN’T IT GUYS?
