Doing it the hard way

So, our guy friend has been over the last couple'a weekends helping us get the house ready for the dialysis nurse to do her annual inspection. The wife suggested he get some ice to put the warm soda over. He goes, gets a "glass" (actually plastic) and goes to the refrigerator and gets some ice. Then I hear him messing with the ice. "What are you doing?" I asked, because the food was here and would start to get cold soon. "Just refilling the reserve ice," he replied. He's doing this by scooping it out of the ice maker's container and into the reserve ice container. "We just grab it and dump it in when its empty," I told him. "What?" he asked, since he was making so much noise with the ice. "We just dump it in," I said again. "Oh." He's always doing things the hard way...

Well everyone goes about problem solving in different ways. Sometimes easier sometimes harder. The most unique about us being human beings is were not all the same obviously. Sure it can be frustrating but some people it takes a while to register things through to them so they understand that their current way of doing things may not be the correct way.

I'm not going to say it was the wrong way, it just was the harder way. It still got the ice transferred from one container to the other, but my way was just a couple of simple moves, his was to try and scoop all the ice from one container into the other.

Some folks like to do things hands on.

he just doesn't think sometimes, thinks he gets as much out of a movie as from the book it is taken from - yes, movies when they aren't taken from a book can tell a fine story, but most of the time important stuff is left out that were in the book
