Surprising turn of events

I know someone who finds life a little bit… surprising.

For instance, a mobile phone sits on the desk. It obviously belongs to them, and they have set the ringtone/volume/vibrate options.

It rings.

The novelty of a phone ringing makes the person jump so violently, they knock the phone from it’s holder, and the noise it makes as it hits the desk makes them jump all over again.

I wonder if there will be a situation that is so surprising, it turns into some kind of perpetual motion problem.

Regardless, the entire thing reminds me of Catherine Tate.

And similar to Ms Tate, the joke gets old pretty quickly.
