When I upload images to my storefront on Redbubble, there’s a large horizontal progress bar that moves across the screen until completion.
The thing I’ve noticed is this:
When I actively watch the progress bar, it seems to move at a relatively constant pace.
But when I click to another tab, do a little work, and then click back, the progress bar speeds up momentarily.
I’m sure there is an “explanation” for such a thing, but here’s what I think is really happening:
The moment I click to another tab, the progress bar looks around, realizes no one is watching, and goes:
“Yessss! He’s gone! Time to kick back and relax! Don’t mind if I do. Where are my nachos?”
And then I pop back in suddenly to check on the progress and it’s like,
“Oh sh*t! You’re back early! Hi. Yeah, we’re — uh — really working hard here! Look how fast we’re working!”
Except he’s got nacho cheese on his fingers and stains around his mouth. And there are definitely signs of a party.
Yeah, that’s what’s happening. I just know it.
