HNT decision-making

On Saturday I travelled 2 hours each way to an all-day party. I hate parties, the only reason I went was that one of the organisers was planning to take all the dog-owners for a beach walk and swim.

When I got to the party, many people claimed to want to go for the walk, but nobody could decide what to do. Everyone kept asking everyone else if they wanted to go. After enduring half an hour of this consensus-based (nonsensus-based) decision-making, I took off on my own with the dog and a book, and lay on the beach while the dog chased waves. Now that's my kind of party.



The picture is from another island and another century, but you get the idea.



Later I discovered that the organiser had indeed eventually led some people on the walk, but he gave them the slip on the way to the beach. Which mental disorder is that?

Adolf! Heil! What kind of mental disorder does your dog have? Is it a blue healer? Does it try to catch sparks flying off the barbie? I mean, it sounds daft. Why don't you get yourself a hound? Good ones just lie about. A decent dog would help. Hotboy

Adolf! Zeigy! There are things falling down your bloggy. Cross things. Why do they look like pluses? Anyway, it's not me. Have you spent time doing this? You need a proper job, Adolf! Hut Management is the game for you! The blindfolded mother on the hamster wheel, the interior castle in the hut, the howling at the moon. How much would you pay? I think I could clean up here!
