You know that slight feeling of “hmmm. I better rectify this. And soon”. It’s a tinge of something. Not panic, certainly not, but it’s discomfort, it’s a niggle, and it’s something you can usually fix, it’s within your control. I like to call it: the personal comfort level or the PCL as others may know it as.
Confused? Don’t be. Let me explain.
I need my volume level on my remote to be on level 85. If it’s going to be on anything other than 85, it should be on an odd number. IT JUST SHOULD BE because that’s what right. We have two volumes at play – the Austar (cable) and the TV. The TV needs to be set at 85 and we can work around the levels on the other remote. If I get to the the TV and the base levels are low and the cable at max, I get the niggle. And of course I fix it IMMEDIATELY.
If per chance I take something out of the microwave and it’s not finished the allotted time you bet I go clearing out that number from the display. If I get there, and there is a stray 2 or 3 seconds just sitting there, not fulfilling their destiny, you bet I am clearing it. Just as fast as I can.
My inbox has always been a thing I like to take control over. A control freak? Why yes, yes I am! If I see an inbox (not looking in your direction at all Rob) with THOUSANDS of emails most of which are (DEAR GOD) unanswered and unread, well you can bet that my comfort levels reach fever pitch. Inboxes are for actioning and at the most I will have 20 odd sitting in there that need my actioning. Some times I even get that little line – “wow! Your inbox is really clean”. OF COURSE IT IS. IT’S MY INBOX.
When I see that battery level on my mobile get below 20% I get itchy. 10% and I’m in a mild panic. Those noises? Just before it dies? I just have to turn it off if I am away from a battery source. I feel like I’m letting my phone down. Poor battery. I’ll try better next time.
So what about you? What gets you all titchy? I KNOW I am not alone.
