Who on earth would put coat hooks this high up from the floor? Surely, whoever fitted them must have used a ladder unless the person was about 8 feet tall.
We had called into a local hall that was holding an amateur art exhibition. Normally, I wouldn’t remove my coat on such a visit. However, the first thing I noticed that wasn’t quite right was a jacket hanging off the door handle. My first thought was who would do that? Then I noticed the coat hangers that were so high up. On first impression, I wanted to laugh. After all, it must be a joke, no one would seriously place hooks so high as to be impossible to reach, would they?
It seems they would here. Perhaps they were part of the art exhibition, but after a couple of enquiries, it was soon obvious they had been placed too high by whoever place them too high! I lost all concentration after this and found it impossible to enjoy the art show. In fact, it was almost as if we had entered a real-life Monty Python sketch.
I find it strange when you ask someone about something that’s not right on their premises, they sort of roll their eyes and give you the old “I don’t know” now move along and leave me alone look. Maybe it’s because I’m the 568th person to have asked them that day. Even if they can’t get the coat hooks lowered they could at least place a couple of temporary coat stands so visitors would have somewhere to put their jackets.
To be honest, I was so appalled by this nonsense that I refused to have a cup of tea and maybe a slice of chocolate cake in the little cafe. Is it only me that gets wound up about nonsense like this? In the scheme of things it’s really nothing, but, these things still wind me up. You wouldn’t put a
brand new television behind the Welsh dresser so no one could see it, would you? Or carpet the shower cubicle, but that’s how the coat hanger affects me. It’s annoyingly stupid.
One day I will get to the bottom of it, but perhaps it is just what it is, a mistake that has never been put right. Oh well, I can’t hang about, certainly not in this place.
