Just another blog complaining about anything and everything

Quote of the Day

This in relation to a CEO (Civil Enforcement Officer) putting a parking fine on a car and then finding a dead person in the back.

He said: ‘I heard the call come in on the radio. He is really shaken up by it. The thing is, we are not allowed to wake people up in their cars if they are asleep in case we give them a heart attack.

Someone’s been thinking too much without actually using their inteligence (they probably have none) or has probably seen a film where this happens. In real life someone sleeping in their car will never get a heart attack from a minor surprise to someone knocking on the car window. It’s not surprise that tends to cause heart attacks, it’s stress and over exertion.

  1. Dont you think being woken abruptly by some ugly CEO hitting your car window might make you panic . So rapid pulse – raised BP – death.

    • So what if a bird flew into the window, or a branch hit the roof, or a lout threw a stone at the car? Same thing, but instead you can’t sue someone.

      The CEO can knock gently on the window. They don’t need to knock loudly at all. Common sense. Knock gently for a bit, then a bit louder till you wake the person up – or not.

      Banning CEOs from knocking on windows just means that CEOs aren’t allowed to use their common sense. Their managers just don’t understand that if you give someone some responsibilty they will in general use it with common sense. If they don’t then you move them elsewhere or kick them out – but don’t tar everyone with the same brush.
