There is a sign on the table in the kitchen at work. It reads: “Help yourself.” This is because it is indicating that the pile of CDs on the table is free and people can take any, if any, they want. However, my brain is choosing to see this differently.
Whenever I walk by, I keep thinking this is some kind of lame attempt at being inspirational. “What are you doing? Why are you living your live like this? Don’t just sit there…help yourself!”
I have no idea why my brain is doing this. I have no reason to think the sign would find fault with my life anyway. It’s just what I keep thinking whenever I see the sign. I even get irritated briefly. I bet other people at work don’t react that way.
