It’s finally happened. One of the last quiet places left on planet earth, once left to the rare beauty of silence, has been ruined by yet another television screen.
It’s called PumpTV, “Australia’s first and only digital television network” and it pumps out news, sport and weather updates, four times a day, everyday through tiny television screens attached to the top of the petrol pump.
Yes, the petrol station, a place where even mobile phones are banned, has fallen victim to noise and distraction. Goodbye silence, hello just another example of our inability to do anything without being bombarded by some form of on-screen entertainment.
