My Lovely Mug!!

18th May 2012

So this week I narrowly missed getting into big trouble with my wife, I brought her car key to work, not on purpose! She's got one of these contactless keys so you just have to have it on you to start the car and I had been driving it the night before, put the key in my pocket and forgot about it. I found it just as I arrived at work the next day, and a thousand thoughts rush through your head, can I get back home and back to work in time, will she have to get a taxi to work, could she get a friend to drop her off, has she got a spare key? One quick phone call it was all sorted as she had a spare, crisis averted. This is typical of technology it becomes too clever and yes it helps you out but provides you with a whole host of new problems. Those sensor handwashes are a perfect example of this. You know the ones that you put your hand under and it dispenses some handwash. BUT if you hold your hand under for a fraction too long it dispenses more which goes all over the sink or floor thus creating more work for you.

My other disaster this week was with a mug. We have a new promotion where you can get a brand new Sun Fm mug by sending in a picture of yourself with your old battered mug. To demonstrate what we wanted I got an old mug from the kitchen so i could have my photo taken with it. However, i decided it didn't look old and battered I thought i would try and chip it a bit and make it look more worse for wear. Clearly I didn't think this through because as I whacked the mug off the floor it broke in two...not exactly what I had hoped for. Not one to be defeated we incorporated this into the 'design' and it meant we could patch it up, with plasters! I think you will agree it did the trick and has the desired effect...
