1st Person Butterfly Effect

Ever notice how some days everyone is in a bad mood and everything seems to go awry; like everyone got up on the wrong side of the bed?

But this is implausible. The chance of everyone randomly getting up on the wrong side of the bed is virtually nil, and bad days are reasonably common.

I have a theory.

This is that the first person who wakes up on a given day is responsible for setting the mood, and if on that first interaction something untoward happens (stubbed toe leads to not saying please for your coffee etc.) that’s the day gone. That dark mood spreads far and wide like a virus in a Hollywood blockbuster.

Conversely, should that first person be having a cracker, that happy business just spreads.

So I’d like to call on that first person, whoever you are, whatever little niggling thing happens to you on that first human interaction, suck it up buddy; take one for the team and help reduce sales of Prozac.
