If You Need To Make Your Monday More Depressing …

If you thought bottled water was expensive, try bottled water with an over engineered ring pull.

Look, I get they’re doing their bit for the environment.

And I do appreciate that having a ring pull that reseals means you might keep your drink for longer rather than throwing it away because the bubbles have gone flat.

Seriously, it’s all so over-the-top though I must admit to enjoying watching people trying to work out how to open it when they first get one because – like I did – they want to act all nonchalant but inside, they’re conscious that if they don’t find a way to take a sip soon, they’ve just been publicly humiliated by a can.

Which is even more refreshing than the water.

But I tell you what is even more refreshing than that …

As you read this, I’m in NYC so there’s no more blog posts till Thursday.


Consider this my Christmas gift from me to you … something I know you will like and not take back to the shop to ask for a refund. Which is a good thing, because the value of this blog is – as you well know – £0.01.

Enjoy the peace, see you Thursday.

What, you can’t blog from NYC? That should be easier than opening a can of water.

Comment by andy@cynic

I’m staying at the Ace. No one orders room service here both for the fact everything costs $1,000 and you don’t want to let another try-hard hispter invade your space, even if they’re bringing you your food.

If only that rule could extend to the times you’re not travelling.

When overengineering goes over the top.

I love how much you despise that Ace Hotel. I love the fact that you’re putting yourself through the pain (on someone else’s dollar, no doubt).
