button pushing

While listening to Sugarbabes's push the button song (love their songs, very light and uplifting.) it got me thinking. "If the guy who invented button get paid RM 0.10 everytime a button pushed. He'd be filthy rich..... well filthy because he's six feet down under by now and rich because every human being love to push buttons!! Humans, they will poke at anything they can get their pointy finger at. Nose, pimples, woman's neither region. You name it, they will poke it.

And sometime this behavior can be very irritating. Even though they know they aren't suppose to push that button, they don't need to push that button, there's a warning sign telling them not to push that red button! (in fact warning sign encourage them to do the opposite of what it is written. "Warning! Do not push the red button!" will be translated in their mind as "warning! do not push the red button!") . They will in the end let their curiosity triumph over their rationality and push that damn thing.

Don't believe me? Let me give you some example... let me see..

Aaahh.. let's look at elevator..

Most of people are lazy bastards. They won't go the extra mile, they'll do anything to get to one place without moving their muscle so much. And in this case, they won't take the stairs if there are elevator available. I don't mean those who have to go to 3rd and above floors, I meant those who got in the elevator just because they want to go to one floor above. Those lazy bastards annoys me the most.

Anyway, have you ever noticed that when you waiting for the elevator, some people (or maybe yourself) will push the up or down button even though it has already been pushed?

You go to a elevator, you noticed you're the 1st to arrive and the elevator in several floors above you. So you push the button and wait for it to come down. And then one girl come along, dressed up like an athlete going for a training. You take one look at her and think "She must be going to the gym.... wait a minute, that gym is only one floor up from here, why couldn't take the stairs instead? I mean she will get herself a workout later, why not take the stairs as part of the workout?... what a stupid b-" before you can finish that thought, she go push that button again. What the hell is she thinking?

Maybe what's on her mind is " Lalalala, going to the gym.. don't wanna sweat before I reach there.. so I take the elevator instead.. gonna push the button and wait for the elevator... alallaala.. eh? the button has been pushed, but I'll push it one more time so that the elevator will know that this floor has more than one people waiting for it and will come down faster.. LAlalalala"

Another one example is the button on the traffic light post. You know, the one for pedestrian to push if they want to cross the road? I don't think that button works anyway, maybe it is just there to fulfilled people's urge to push something...

Anyway.. you were walking , you want to cross that road to get to the other side. You reached at the junction where there is a traffic light post in front. You saw a guy standing there, clearly he want to get across too. He has pushed that button and were waiting for the pedestrian light to turn green. Then you go push that button again thinking that maybe the guy has used the wrong button pushing technique because the light should have turned green by now. The guy look at you, you look at the light. You both wait...

Then another guy came, he push the same button. You look at him, thinking " hey idiot, this guy already pushed it, I've pushed it. No need to push it one more time la. You think the light would turn to green if you push it more ah?" Then you look at the previous guy, thinking he can read your mind and give him the "Can you believe this guy?" gesture.

Doesn't that push your button sometimes??
