Daily Prompt- Full Disclosure– A mad scientist friend offers you a chip that would allow you to know what the people you’re talking to are thinking. The catch: you can’t turn it off. Do you accept the chip?
When my mad scientist friend came to me with the offer, I thought it would be interesting to what other people, you are talking to, especially a cat, dog or other animals are thinking but only sometimes. Otherwise, it will interrupt my talking as I’ll be busy hearing what they are thinking.
Had I been a detective, it would have helped me know to read the criminal’s mind and solve the mystery.
My mind itself is chattering all the time and to burden, hearing others thoughts will be too much, I will become insane.
Moreover, it will be like trespassing. I do not like others to know what I’m thinking when they are talking.
Usually, people don’t listen to each other. Their mind is preoccupied with their thoughts. They just wait for the chance when another person will stop talking and they will start, some people don’t even wait for that. They have a habit of interrupting.
So just for fun and only for some time, I would have accepted it but the catch, that I can’t turn it off decided it.
No thanks dear friend, I am better off without it.
