As many people have been doing over the holidays, I’ve been watching a lot of Netflix. One of the shows I’ve been watching is “Bletchley Circle,” about a group of former Bletchley Park code-breakers solving mysteries.
The show is great but one of the scenes drove me crazy. It’s not just this show either. It’s a scene I’ve seen in a lot of movies and t.v. shows that always annoys me.
The women sneak into a police station to go through files, then they just pull out the papers they want, put them on a desk, on the floor, etc. They don’t mark which folders they came from. They’re all shuffled in a messy pile.
What happens after they’re done? Do they put the files back where they belong? If so, how do they figure out where they go? If they leave them all out, wouldn’t they be reported to the police once it’s discovered? How is it for the next set of detectives who want to sneak into the file room if the last set pulled everything out of folders and didn’t put it back in the right places?
Also, when do they go to the toilet?
