A woman was being interviewed about a new product that made stainless steel fridge doors fingerprint free. With this wonderful new invention you could now open and close the refrigerator door and not leave marks.
“It’s life-changing!” exclaimed the woman.
No, it’s not.
If you lose a limb – that can be life-changing.
If a close family member or partner dies – that can be life- changing.
A divorce can be life-changing.
Moving to live in a foreign country can be life-changing.
Having a baby can be life-changing.
Lots of things can be life-changing but having a fridge door that doesn’t show finger marks is not, in my opinion, a life-changing situation.
I may be wrong…but if it is, then I do wonder what sorts of lives some people are living.
But, what would I know? My fridge is so old-fashioned, it’s white.
