Random Meditations

Mondays are my days for random meditations. Instead of contemplating my navel (I now have two navels, by the way, the one I’ve had all my life, and a second where I had my feeding tube. The hole is closed back up. but I still have a second indentation.) I digress.

This Monday, I thought why we presume everybody behaves like we do. For example, where I park to get my haircut you have to pay for your parking using a cell phone. You have to scan a  QR code, then you use the credit card in your phone wallet to pay for parking. When I first encountered this I didn’t have a clue how to use my phone to do this. (I can’t say I do now. I’ve been known to ignore paying.) But what bugs me is why does the parking company assume everyone has a cellphone and knows how to use their cellphone to pay.

In this country we say we admire and encourage individuality, but try parking or eating at restaurant these days without a cell phone, not to mention pay cash for anything. Oh well, I need to meditate about more important matters such as whether Malt or Milton does a better job of justifying God’s way to man.
