I Hate When That Happens

I have had this happen to me on occasion. I am not a very good decision maker. I'm glad to see I'm not alone.

Man Psyches Self Out During Selection Of Ice-Cream Flavor
September 18, 2006 | Issue 42•38

TALLAHASSEE, FL—Tallahassee resident Hannibal Grant found himself "paralyzed" by the sheer immensity of ice-cream options available to him at a local Cold Stone Creamery Monday, sources close to Grant report. "I was ready to pick out just one nice flavor of ice cream without second guessing what might be good and what was more of a risk, but there's—they have over fortysomething flavors," said an exasperated Grant, who eventually returned home empty-handed after a self-imposed order-line delay of 26 minutes. "Chocolate cream, mint chocolate-chip, chocolate chunks, white chocolate, just to name a few. And I don't even like chocolate." Grant is expected to recover well enough to return to his job as a research librarian by Friday

In a panic, I order what the person in front of me ordered. Then I say something like, "hey, that's my favorite too!"

Then they can't tell that I lost my cool.

No imagination.


I'd say that perhaps indecisiveness can be good for weight control. But unlike that guy, if I couldn't decide I would have just gotten a scoop of every flavor in a giant container and taken it home and eaten it all. :)
