If, like me, you find you have trouble getting into the groove some days, you might just simply try to spiff up the conversation.
At the office today, the topic around the water cooler was, what is the greatest invention of all time?
Janice didn’t hesitate to answer – the telephone. Her husband does remark that the telephone seems permanently attached to her ear. Carl mentioned the invention of the refrigerator. Steven couldn’t fathom life without a microwave or the availability of fast food. Yes, he is a bachelor.
Mary couldn’t imagine life without a television and having three kids at home made her shudder.
Sharon couldn’t grasp a day without the invention of electricity. She had a grandmother who used to say: “Turn on the Edison” for every electrical appliance she owned.
The question of invention brought a lot of answers to mind. No two people had the same reply. Yet to the question of worst invention of all time each person agreed – the clock. Now back to work.
