WHY CAN’T PEOPLE KEEP “SIMPLE INSTRUCTIONS”?

disobeying signsHaven’t you noticed that the very little instructions are the hardest to keep? People just find it difficult to obey them.

On entering an event center, you see boldly displayed “KINDLY SWITCH OFF YOUR MOBILE PHONE” and some people go further to display it on the multimedia screen but still, you will hear a phone ring before the event is over, I always wonder why.

Why is it so hard to keep the very little instructions, “switch off your electronic devices when not in use”, “flush the toilet after use”, “stand up/still while the national anthem is being sung”. The list is endless.

I heard the story of a written interview, where the applicants where given a question booklet, answer sheets, pen to write with, but were given a very short time to attempt the test. The instructions filled 3 pages and the interview question one, almost all raced directly to the question page, ignoring the first instruction on the cover page to “READ THE INSTRUCTION CAREFULLY BEFORE ATTEMPTING THE TEST”. It turned out that they were just to submit the answer sheet blank. But they all failed.

I imagine how much we have been victims of finding it hard to keep simple instructions. Sometimes the repercussion can be very grievous, like losing a job you could have gotten without shedding a sweat or having a whole house burned down, even to losing a life. I am sure most ghastly motor accidents or even airplane crashes may be as a result of disobeying simple instructions.

“Brush your mouth twice daily”, “No U-turn is allowed here”, “Zebra crossings”, “Use your seat belts”, “Don’t drink while driving and vice versa”, “Table manners”, “Making phone calls behind the stirring wheel”.
