What Should We Do With Those Papers

11 Jun

I know that sometimes I think too much about something. I know that sometimes I think about things that people normally don’t think alot about it. I’m quite a (useless) thinker. And allow me to do it now.

Have you ever experience to wait on a queue with a piece of waiting-information-paper on hand? Like when we queue in a bank or in a customer service? The little piece of paper gives us the information of our waiting-number and (sometimes) the amount of customer(s) before us.

The paper helps us to remind the exact waiting-number especially when we trapped on a long queue and or there are many servers on the service center. Of course we can simply throw the paper into the garbage after we dealt with the server. But what would we do when there’s no garbage nearby?

We definitely have to hand in the paper onto our bag and or our pocket. Because no way we can ditch it anywhere on the service center. Especially if they have securities who monitor our every move on the place. Ha!

I’m not a standstill person, especially on waiting. Waiting-paper in hand is the best object we could get to kill our time on waiting. Especially if we don’t want to be consumed alot with our handphones thus we miss our turn. You wish!

I really can’t find the best reason why the service center use the electronic waiting information, use printed paper to hand out to the customer. Why don’t they use card or something that could reduce the usage of paper. Think of how many trees that need to be cut down to provide this lifestyle. Think of how many can of ink that needed.

    i think it is the simplest thing they can imagine ^^, they haven’t try become the customer maybe, or they aren’t as “active” as you are … πŸ˜€

    Wow, seperti biasa, Nadia, berpikir sangat kritis sekali.. πŸ™‚ Saya ga pernah terpikirkan untuk tidak menggunakan kertas.. saya kurang peka. Jadi ke Bank, ke servis hape, saya hanya menikmati layanannya aja… 😐

    Perhaps they think the pieces of papers are better than the long queuing we used to have. πŸ™‚
