Okay, so this has been bugging me all week. The other day, our neighbouring office put up a new sign. Nothing particularly special about it, but I couldn’t stop looking at it … there was something wrong … something …
And then I saw it. One of the H’s is upside down. I’m guessing it’s the second one. See – the crossbar is slightly lower. It’s one of those things that isn’t immediately apparent, but it’s just enough to make the whole thing look wonky and irritating. It’s a bit like Shannon Doherty and her whole one-eye-lower-than-the-other thing.
And now I don’t know what to do about it. I’m sure if I just wandered into their reception and told the receptionist about it, I’d be greeted with a confused, pitying look. Should I send them a note? Is there a Royal Society for the Protection of Type I could contact?
I have to do something. I can see it out the window. It’s looking at me.
I got in touch with Helix House again whilst moving all my old posts over to the new design of this site, and they promptly replied! They had apparently never noticed it (and they're nanotechnologists – you'd think they'd keep an eye on the details), but thanked me for my "helpful" observation.

Since writing this, I t has been pointed out by my optician that I too am a bit Doherty-esque. Sorry Shannon. Think of it like this: one eye is even more awesome than the other. Yes. That's almost definitely what it means.
