As the boys got together at Suncorp Stadium Friday night to see the Eels vs. the Broncos, Johnno from Emerald (31) was super excited to show them all his new weather App. While it’s not unusual for someone to show off a new App, it is strange that someone under the age of 60 would take such a keen interest in the weather.
“I checked the App guys and it said there’s a slight chance of rain,” announced Johnno to the group after no one asked. Returning to general conversation, Johnno took every opportunity to let the boys know what the weather would be like and when.
“What are you doing tomorrow in Brissy?” asked one of the blokes before Johnno chimed in that the App said there were clear skies promised.
“Staying in the hotel and drinking, watch the footy maybe,” said one of the boys, foolishly thinking that this might prevent another weather update; alas, it did not.
“When do you head home?” asked another.
“Sunday. Say Johnno, what’s the weather like on Sunday?”
“Cloudy with a chance of rain, mate,” said Johnno proudly.
Amusing as it may seem, scientists do warn of situations like this. Known as ‘Premature Aging Complex’, or PAC, after installing the weather App Johnno may also find himself taking a jumper everywhere he goes, starting every sentence with ‘In my day’ and reminiscing about the good old days way back in the 1990s.
