If all people were THAT stupid...
8 January 2007 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

The world would come to an end. I can understand how in the 13 th century or something someone could loose somebody, because of the communication channels or whatever. But to think that two people who have mobile phones, have each other s addresses can simply get lost because of a maniac is to much. And what was with all those coincidences. The bad person is always in time for everything. The stupid idiots that love each other are always late, missing in action. And what if he went to China and THEN fix his problems??? Was that a problem. ANd how come the Chinese people never called if it was such an important meeting?? I don t even want to start about the airport scene. Embarrassing...

Conclusion: thank God we re not all that stupid!!!
