In fact it was Olga´s blog post that made me write this one. Thinking what I could share there, a book by an austrian psychologist came to mind about which I wanted to report there. It probably had went off topic so that I decided to open a new blog. here it goes:
The name of the psychologist was Paul Watzlawik. And the title is "manual to unhappiness". Paul wrote and collected some short stories of which the following makes me giggle on ocassion:
A guy had bought a new drawing as to hang it to the wall. Trying to hang it up he found out that he had nails indeed but no hammer. Now as he remembered his neighbour had one he decided to ask him for it. No sooner than done he left his flat and went to the neighbour´s door. Wonderring how to ask the neighbour and what to say in case the neighbour refused to give him the hammer only negative answers by the neighbour came to his mind. The longer the guy faced the neighbour´s door the more mad he got. Finally he knocked on the neighbours door. The neighbour opened the door and got scared seeing the guy scolding: "Keep your darn hammer yours. I´ll go to the do-it-yourself-shop and buy me an own hammer".
lol can anyone find himself in that story? If so you got 99 points out of 100. rofl
