You work in an office and don't carry a pen.
Hope for the best and prepare for the worst.

The object in life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane

I live in Canada, north of Seattle. We get just as much rain as Seattle and I don't carry an umbrella, so this is "unprepared behavior" for me and thousands of my fellow compatriots in my area who also don't carry umbrellas?

Comment threads like this should be titled GOM. Give you a hint on the GOM nomenclature. First word is grumpy, the last is men.
Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.

You wore Crocs on a hike in the Rocky Mountains?

(I actually observed this.)

The hiking path up here is paved with fist sized gravel and you managed to make it in high heels? (observed this in Saxony)
If it isnīt broken, it doesnīt have enough features yet.
