Amazing Avoidance of Ice Cube Making
When we had ice cube trays, I was the only one who could see that the empty ones should be refilled and put back into the freezer.
The other members of the family had a peculiar blindness to empty ice cube trays. Unless I pointed out an empty tray to them, they were unable to see it.
Nowadays we have an ice maker in the freezer. It's very easy to operate. It has a little lever. If you push the lever down, it makes ice, and if you push the lever up, it stops making ice.
Here is a curious fact. I am the only who can see that the lever should be moved in either direction. No one can see that he has just removed the last ice cubes from the bin and the ice maker should be started. Nor can they see that ice is spilling out of the bin and the ice maker should be stopped.
Amazing, but true. I can hardly believe it myself.
I know, I know. I could just let them suffer the consequences, but then I wouldn't have ice for my drinks.
