Pay attention. This is important.
Stop staring off into space, stop thinking about which foot moves next, stop thinking about the argument you had with someone last night. Pay attention to what you're doing at this moment.
See that? That's a sign, a label. It's trying to provide you with important information - perhaps the name of a street, or the contents of that jar. Do not ignore it - read the damn thing.
Hello? Yeah, over here. I'm still talking to you. Fucking look at me. I'm going to provide you with important information. Information you will need in the near future.
Yo! Stop that, asstard! Your strangely-coloured cellphone is not critical right now - I am. Notice my presence? This is the most important first step for you. The next important step is to listen to what I'm saying. After that, you will need to look around you. The final step, should you actually progress this far, will be to make a Crick-damned fucking decision and act on it. Doing nothing is, sadly for your skill-set, not an option.
OK, you managed to screw up even that simple sequence. Smiling at me like that won't help - you don't look apologetic, you look moronic and mocking.
You know what? Forget it.
