Whilst walking towards Victoria Station for lunch today, I decided to conduct a spontaneous survey – my aim was to find out the number of people who had a smile on their faces, versus those who didn’t.
I had to relax the requirements a little bit when it became apparent that most people fall somewhere in the middle, so I decided anyone that looked generally upbeat and happy counted in the “smiling” category, and anyone that looked like they were totally boned about it being four-days-until-the-weekend fell in with the “frown” crowd.
And the results? Exactly one person out of five was a smiler. One out of five! That’s only 20%! So, next time you’re out – smile, and become a part of the minority!
