Communication.


In the East the symbol of wisdom.

When going away from your home or business do you, to inform anyone who calls, leave a message like this in a suitable place?

BACK IN 15 MINUTES

Comment on what, if anything, is wrong with such a message.

About Ian Gardner

Ian Gardner was born on the 20th February 1934 in Sri Lanka, then Ceylon, and christened Basil Ian Gunewardene. He was born two months prematurely and nearly died five times in his first two months. He moved to Australia in September 1969 where he changed his surname to Gardner. From childhood he had an enquiring mind and an innate interest in the supernatural. Since 1986, nineteen years of meditation, "searching within", reading and revelations have culminated in this free book which has been nine years in the making. Further writings followed and all his writings are available to all on the Internet free of charge. There is more information in the preface of the book.

    The day after I posted this question I went to an optometrist and on the door glass was this message “BACK IN 15 MINUTES” When I returned I mentioned to the lady responsible what I had posted on the web the day before and we had a little chat about the subject. I was quite surprised (or was I really?) when she said, ‘When I go somewhere and see such a notice I say to myself, ‘Now what is that supposed to mean? When did the person leave?’
    Here, probably, is an example of someone aware of inconvenience caused to her but not aware of that which she causes someone else? . . . . . . the focus is on self!!

Well, what do you say?
