    Having a positive body image is important to many. Which is why you will find many compulsively hovering over the scale looking for that 0.1 shift in the scale needle.

    Card Declined

    Imagine being a guy having a lovely romantic dinner with someone you fancy. Then after concluding a lovely meal – you offer to pay being the gentleman you are. The waiter swipes and gives you the decline message. You casually brush it off as a mistake and ask politely for him/her to proceed again. The waiter shows you a decline message once again. Now things get a bit nerve wrecking and you begin to sweat. By the third swipe your date has already left – and you are left alone with only embarrassment to keep you company. This ain’t a message even your worst enemy should see.

    No signal

    In a life and death situation – a no signal warning can be horrifying. Having no way to call for help. This is one of the worst messages to get if you are in the middle of nowhere. The ironic thing is – being stuck in the middle of nowhere is probably the only time you would actually get this message.

    Sold out

    Tom hears from a friend that there is a huge special at his favorite sports store. This seems great because he has been saving for new gym shoes for quite a while. He waits anxiously until the end of the day ready to finally get what he has been eagerly wanting. He arrives there and politely asks the shopkeeper to show him where the special is at. She directs him to the spot and a surge of anger overcomes him. He see the above sign – apparently the last pair was scooped up a minute ago. The sold-out sign is probably the one that brings with it the most regret. Remember to always be the early bird so that you never have to experience what Tom did.
