Living in a new country reminds me how many behavioural patterns I follow unconsciously.
Today I went to the second hand shop of the Red Cross looking for a folder to organise my notes. I chose one and then realised that it was for paper with two holesâ€¦.hhhm but I need a normal one (with one hole). I had to look for a while until I found what I was looking forâ€¦.strange why the people bring to the second hand shop so many folders with two holesâ€¦probably they donâ€™t need them anymore.
I checked that the folder fits into my bag and went happily back homeâ€¦where I realised the followingâ€¦
Obviously in Sweden normal means something else.
My notes do not fit into my new folder but the good thing is that I can bring it back to the second hand shop and take another one:-)
