On the slog in on Friday morning I sat next to a lady (who I am sure is perfectly charming). She was tapping away on her laptop and in such circumstances I believe its beholden on the train neighbour (in this case yours truly) to inspect the content. Purely for academic purposes you understand.
Anyway the lady was working on a Power Point presentation on some benign subject and was adding little animations and clip art characters. And I started to think just how patronising Power Point presentation are. I mean just because it has a lightbulb picture on it I’m not going to think its a good idea. Because its in a thought bubble over some ridiculous cartoon character head I’m not going to remember it. And as for those little beanie men……it’s all just stuff and nonsense.
People who create these things…..STOP! You are auto-fellating. Sure it makes you feel good and you get a nice warm glow on completion. But its unproductive, pleases no-one else and leaves a bitter taste in your mouth. Worst of all its unpleasant to behold.
When I came home that evening, my seven year old daughter was knocking up a PP presentation on fire for her homework. And that friends is about the level of this noxious little program.
